      It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without sweet potato casserole topped with marshmallows.

    • Emmi

      I have to say the green bean casserole. You really know that it’s an important and popular dish when Walmart devotes a whole end cap to canned green beans for 50cents, cream of mushroom soup for 50 cents and French’s fried onions for $1!

    • Laura

      definitely couldn’t have thanksgiving without sweet potato casserole topped with marshmallows and crystalized pecans! yummy…can’t wait for Thursday!

    • Jen

      If I had to pick just one, I would have to go with homemade mashed potatoes! You can’t have turkey dinner without them:)

    • It is not Thanksgiving without Five Cup Salad!!!!!!!!

      • Vanessa

      • Dawn

      Butternut squash casserole. I can’t wait!

    • Allyson

      I love it all…but my boys love my pies!!

    • sarah

      It would not be Thanksgiving without cranberry chutney!

    • Stacey

      My daughters can’t wait for the cornbread dressing and giblet gravy. My husband can’t wait sweet potato pie and deviled eggs.
      By the way, I love Panko crumbs as they are crispier and crunchier for battering chicken and/or steak fingers in.

      • LD

        Good to know as I had not tried these yet . Great tip,thanks.

    • Felisa

      It would not be Thanksgiving without homemade baked macaroni and cheese with breadcrumbs and butter on top.

    • Mrs K

      Apple Pie … and Pumpkin Pie … and Cool Whip … and ice cream … and ..

    • Kimberly

      We HAVE to have my mom’s homemade yeast rolls and her homemade strawberry jam. We usually have around 50 people and she keeps the pans of rolls coming. We eat them with dinner and then follow up with them for dessert, too! They even beat out the pies!

    • Katherine

      Turkey…of course!

    • Phynie

      Fried Turkey with pumpkin pie a close second!

      hmmm..it is a tossup between mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce….but you gotta eat them together to feel thanksgivingy. :)

    • Amy B.

      I’m a huge panko fan. We use them & pecans as a crust on fish. Our thanksgiving wouldn’t be the same without Granny’s Mixed Veggie Casserole. Drooling just thinking about it!

    • Corrie

      I use my husband’s great-great-grandmother’s dressing recipe, and it’s the best dressing I’ve ever eaten!

    • Kate

    • Sarah Beth

      Cherry Delight

    • Fran H

      Dressing: I remember, as a child, helping my Mom make it. How I wish she was still here. I have tried to make it like she always did; it’s good, but not as good as Mom’s.

    • April

      Ok, I know this sounds weird since most people eat mashed potatoes.. but my mom always made rice and gravy. Southern, white gravy. Yum. No one can make it like my mom! And trust me, I’ve tried!

    • Natalie

      That’s hard but I have to go with cornbread dressing! YUM!

    • Carrie

      Sweet potato pie that my grandma always makes.

    • Susie

      Definitely the stuffing!

    • srtasa

      the turkey

    • lovingaunt

      I would have to say cornbread dressing. My daddy taught me how to make it when I was young and making it now brings back all the good memories I have of our time spent together baking the cornbread, chopping onions, etc. and the little secrets he taught me to make it perfect everytime.

    • lizel

      Deviled Eggs!

    • Brandi

      I’d have to say sweet potato souffle…or mashed potatoes and gravy…or chocolate pie…so hard to choose just one!!! LOL!!

    • Lindsay

      definitely turkey!

    • Mrs. Morgan

      That would be…Oyster dressing! Please do NOT use cornbread in this! I don’t think it would be Thanksgiving without it!

    • jennifer

      turkey…i just can not imagine thanksgiving without turkey..but my favorite is sweet potato casserole! i can’t wait :) happy thanksgiving everyone!

    • I would have to say mini pumpkin cheesecakes. A dear friend gave me this very easy recipe and now it is a tradition!

    • amy

      Since this is about favorites.. gotta go with my kids favorite.. my homemade dressing. They still don’t know I use mayonnaise in it and they wont!! Haha. But, they can not live without it. BTW, the mayo is what makes it sooo moist.

    • It’s not Thanksgiving without mashed potatoes and gravy… homemade gravy from turkey drippings. Mouth watering now.

    • Heather

      Turkey of course!

    • Tina

      Sweet potato souffle for sure!

    • Joyce

      I will attempt to make my Mom’s homemade cornbread dressing. I should have watched more closely, and taken notes. It looked so easy when she made it….

    • Bridget

      It has to be pumpkin pie!

    • marcie

      homemade pumpkin pie with fresh pumpkin!

    • Adela

      Of course turkey, and especially sorrounded by dear family and friends!
      Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!!!

    • JAMIE


    • Carly Gilchrist

      my aunt’s pumpkin roll. I’ve had to learn how to make it myself since now I live in Ga and she’s in MD. I made 3 pumpkin rolls on Sunday!! yum yum

    • Alaina

      I could not have thanksgiving without sweet potato casserole with pecans on top! Yummy!

    • Julie Gillen

      Some type of stuffing is a must!!

    • plm

      Definitely my grandmother’s buttermilk cornbread! Perfect compliment for the heaping helpings of turkey, sweet potato casserole and green beans!

    • Rita

      Crock Pot Macaroni and Cheese, but then again, ANY macaroni and cheese would do!!!

    • Ann-Janette

      Homemade stuffing (not stovetop, even though I’ll eat it on non-Thanksgiving days:)

    • Jane Smith

      Mashed potatoes and gravy.

    • Andrea B.

      sweet potatoes with marshmallows on top!

    • denielle

      spicy carrots!!
      thanksgiving dinner was the first meal i learned to cook…..really the only meal i can cook

      when i was about ten my grandmother taught me how to make her carrots, and when she passed away i tried to make them with out her recipe. i was surprised that i can do it. now i make them for my entire family and we all think back and remember her! it would not be the same without them!!

    • Dianna

      Definitely my grandmother’s dressing. It just isn’t Thanksgiving without dressing!

    • Kristin

      My grandma’s stuffing! I already requested an extra batch to bring home with me!

      My most favorite thing on Thanksgiving is…..Cherry Pie! Yum!

    • maria

      pumpkin pie…. YUMMY!

    • Laura

      Sweet potato casserole, and hold the marshmallows. Lots of brown sugar though. :)

    • First, I have to say it would not be Thanksgiving without my wonderful family. I thank God for each and every one of them.
      Also, it wouldn’t be Thaksgiving without my mom’s dressing and giblet gravy. She makes the BEST!

    • Shannon

      My vote goes to green bean casserole. Of course I love the turkey also.

    • Definitely the cranberry sauce!

    • Emily

      My family has to have my made-from-scratch cornbread dressing. A dear friend in Montgomery shared the recipe when my eldest daughter was a baby. It is dense, moist and flavorful and would make a pretty good meal all by itself! It is one of many family recipes we have each Thanksgiving….we could never eat anywhere but home for fear of not having those dishes, so I’m always the hostess!

    • christina

      I can’t imagine Thanksgiving without turkey and gravy. It’s my favorite and I make it several times a year so my family does Thanksgiving several times a year.

    • Laura C

      Sweet potato fluff – beat those cooked sweeties, add butter, pecans, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg – put in well greased pan of some sort and bake 30 minutes at 350F, top with mini marshmallows, then broil carefully until nicely browned on top. serve and enjoy!

    • Vanessa

      I guess we are weird because no one else has mentioned ham. It would not be Thanksgiving without ham, baked mac n cheese with bacon on top, and deviled eggs with sweet relish in them. Of course they must be cut up into small pieces and eatten all at the same time. A little of it all on the fork…a party in my mouth!!! I can’t wait…and I am hosting this year for the first time. Wish me luck…my family and my hubby’s?! Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

      • Tina

        I am right there with you on the ham, but my favorite Thanksgiving dish is my mom’s potato salad, warm, of course, right after it has been mixed.

        • Kim C

          Ah ! I thought I was weird for liking warm potato salad. lol.

          • Becky

            Here’s another southern girl who loves warm potato salad!

            • Jennifer

              Warm is the only way to eat potato salad!!LOL

    • Melissa

      Green Bean Casserole!

    • Amanda Bailey

      I would have to say home made mac and cheese. 15 cups of cheese, 2lbs of macarroni and a little butter and cream

    • MIcah

      Mashed Potatoes and Turkey Gravy

    • Lori

      There are so many to pick from… stuffed cranberries and hot cider punch are memorable. Happy Thanksgiving and God Bless you and your families.

    • Sarah

      My Nanny Karen’s stuffing. She passed away 3 years ago but my mom still makes it for us every year!!

    • marfmomma

      it would not be Thanksgiving without my Great Grandmother’s carrot cake!! there are so many dishes, but this is the best. my husband knows he will at least get carrot cake one time a year and that is on Thanksgiving!!!

    • Amy

      Pecan Pie!

    • Julie

      Both pumpkin pie and dressing are musts for me!!

    • bethany

      would not be thanksgiving for me without my mom’s squash casserole!!!! so yummy

    • Deborah

      Homemade stuffing definitely!

    • Vicki B

      MinceMeat Pie! My Daddy and I were the only ones the liked MinceMeat Pie and since he passed having it every Thanksgiving brings wonderful memories.

    • Cherith

      Sweet potato casserole is one of my favorites!

    • Dawn


    • Monica

      Mom always makes me turkey and rice soup on Thanksgiving night with the leftover turkey from lunch. It is my favorite!

    • Michelle

      My mom’s macaroni and cheese! So good and my girls prefer the cheap box kind, ugh, so I don’t make the homemade kind often. Hope you are reading this mom!!!

    • othermom50

      It’s got to be Dressng

    • Leah

      My mom’s squash (mostly cheese) casserole!

      Gotta have Garlic Cheese Grits!

    • chris

      my mom’s chicken salad I could eat it until I get sick!!!!!

    • Linda B

      My moms homemade dressing and chocolate pies. I’ve tried to made both and can’t come close.

    • Alycia

      Oddly enough, “eggies”. We got to have our deviled eggs. We will even sneak them out of the fridge before the appitizer hits the table. Drives my step mom battie!

    • Fairie

      For me it’s a tossup between my sister’s pumpkin bread and my mom’s pecan pie. . .delicious!!

    • Hope

      Southern style cornbread dressing. ummmumm!!! Now that we go to my in-law’s for Thanksgiving I have started making my mom’s family’s recipe to take every year. They are from New Jersey and had never had dressing. Unthinkable.

    • Ashley

      dressing and giblet gravy!

    • Michelle in Martinez

      green bean casserole!

    • Kristen

      Deviled eggs!

    • Lisa

      It’s not Thanksgiving without a Turkey. Thats just plain and simple.

    • Jennifer

      What other than homemade cranberry sauce? I have turkey many times throughout the year, but only have cranberry sauce on Thanksgiving. Makes a good condiment on a post-Thanksgiving turkey sandwich.

    • Buffy Asaro

      WOW – so many replys…I’m starving now!!! But for me – Thanksgiving wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without my Aunt Polly’s String Bean Cassarole and Potatoe Salad….Sadly, she left us 11 months ago to be with her Lord and Savior…We are going to give it a go on her recipies, but Thanksgiving wont be the same without her smiling face! Please pray for my family. Thanks!

    • It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without the stuffing/dressing. I mean, everything else is an afterthought…who needs turkey?

    • It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without broccoli casserole. :)

    • Donna G

      Toasted rice! It makes a nice nutty side to the turkey and fixins.

    • Ali

      My Aunt Leslie’s homemade apple pie… it has been two years since I have been home for Thanksgiving and can’t wait to have it!

    • shawn

      Cornbread dressing with giblet gravy. I am the youngest of four girls. Our tradition is that all of us have to help make the dressing (not stuffing, we are in the south). I crumble the loaf bread and cornbread, another sister pours the broth, another breaks the eggs, and the other one puts in the seasonings. We all get to use the mixer and then we debate over whether it’s done or not…..This year will be much different for us. Our family home burnt to the ground this January and my parents rebuilt. This will be the first year in the new house.

    • Lisa

      It would not be Thanksgiving without the turkey. It is the one time of year where we eat and eat and eat all that turkey goodness filled with tryptophan and that puts us into a wonderful food coma until it is time to get up and make a turkey leftover sandwich :) Happy Thanksgiving!

    • Anya

      Since I married my husband, we have not been able to spend Thanksgiving with his family since they live very far away. His birthday is November 26th and sometimes falls on Thanksgiving (like this year!) so Thanksgiving is especially special for him. I have made it a tradition to always make a baked sweet potato casserole with marshmallows like the one his mother always made to remind him of home! It’s not a dish that I ever had growing up but it’s become one of my favorite dishes to make and it certainly wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without it!

    • Rebecca

      I can’t have thanksgiving without spicy sausage stuffing. My mom’s recipe could be a meal all on its own! And it usually is the day after :)

    • Judi Labrecque

      Our Thanksgivings are eclectic, and I try something new almost every year! A classic we could not do without, though, is cornbread dressing. It is absolutely my favorite!

    • Jennifer Speer

      I don’t think I can pick just one. My mom’s whole side of the family all go to my cousin’s house. Everyone is assigned to bring something. We laugh because each person always brings the same thing every year. I always bring the macaroni and cheese and the hashbrown casserole. I love having the Honey Baked Ham and my cousin makes the best green beans!!

    • For me it’s not Thanksgiving without the sandwiches we make that night from leftovers. Open faced, with turkey, mashed potatoes, dressing, gravy, and cranberries. The best parts of the dinner all in one!

    • Green bean casserole! (also, sister schubert rolls and pumpkin pie)

    • Michele

      Green been casserole

    • amy

      Home-made dressing made from scratch very green from lots of sage.
      Happy Turkey day.

    • Joy

      It could not be Thanksgiving without Turkey for me…but my favorite dish at the holidays is Sweet Potato souffle…gotta have that!

    • Heather

      My mom’s pumpkin roll is out of this world…can’t wait to have it on Thursday!

    • Summer

      I love my mom’s baked hen. It is so much juicer than turkey!

    • Jennifer

      Pumpkin pie of course!

    • Rebecca

      I am so hungry after reading everyone’s responses! Lol. I think yams & marshmallows are my fave but honestly, I scoop that up with turkey a lot too so its all good! Lol. :D

    • Sheri

      My mom’s stuffing I could never be without!

    • Josefina

      Green bean casserole made from scratch with whipping cream and mushrooms!

    • Caroline

      For our family it is my grandmother’s caramel cake. We actually hide pieces so that we can get more than one sliver. I wish she would make two but then I guess it might lose its appeal. Happy Thanksgiving!

    • pharmSCgirl

      Homemade banana pudding while it’s still warm! Yummy!

    • Jenny

      My Mom’s buttermilk pie.

    • It’s not Thanksgiving without my mom’s frozen white salad. It’s got pineapple, pecans, heavy cream, cool whip….and other yummies. Think old-lady-sweet-salad kind of stuff. Yum.

    • Lindy

      Pumpkin Pie!!

    • Hope

      It would not be Thanksgiving without my Grandma’s Dressing..it is the best I have ever had!!! She always puts some to the side for me to make sure I get some. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    • It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without Pumpkin Pie!! =)

    • KC

      Mashed potatoes & gravy!!!

    • Jenny W.

      This may sound weird, but for me Thanksgiving lunch (we always do lunch with my side of the fam.) wouldn’t be complete without my Mom’s asparagus casserole. Its a running joke in my family that you are not a true adult until you have tasted the asparagus casserole…because it looks absolutely disgusting through a child’s eyes. The green tone of it is eerie, it contains boiled eggs, and is topped either by pretzels or breadcrumbs…composed of canned asparagus, cream of mushroom soup, and loads of shredded cheddar, as you can imagine the dish may seem daunting at first, but once you taste the asparagus casserole you are hooked! Especially good with ham….can’t wait! (sorry for the novella)

    • Leigh

      Thanksgiving would not be the same without my mother’s delicious homemade dressing!

    • Karoline

      Broccoli Casserole! yum!! My Aunt would always make it for herself on Thanksgiving because she is allergic to so many traditional Thanksgiving foods and I found a love for it when I was dared into trying it by my older cousin. Now if my Aunt doesn’t come to our Thanksgiving – well we have to do our best to make our own rendition of the casserole (since her’s is a secret) It’s just never the same without it. It Won’t be the same this Thanksgiving… Thanksgiving with the husband’s family this year. bummer (just kidding… kinda) ha!

    • Mina

      The one dish that Thanksgiving would not be the same without is my porcelain turkey platter. Although a simple platter, it is beautiful to me. It is my grandmother’s platter, and served her well for many decades before it came to me. I see the platter and know that our grandparents, great-grandparents, and parents are also with us on this most special day.

      As for food, the meal and leftovers center around The Turkey, and each is always, “the best turkey ever!” no matter how I cook it. But it would still be Thanksgiving, even without the turkey, as long as there was a spirit of thankfulness.

      Thanksgiving is my favorite major holiday of the year because it is family centered, and a time when people are most conscious of the real blessings in their lives that they otherwise take for granted, and look forward with hope to the future. The food is a symbol of the bounty that surrounds each of us. The gathering of people around that meal, whether in reality or spirit, symbolizes our greatest blessing – our connectivity and relationships with one another. That is why a simple “dish” means so much to me on that day.

      Just a side note. I hadn’t heard of Panko bread crumbs before tonight. So, Progresso has successfully spread the word at least a bit through this offer. :-)

      We do use a lot of bread crumbs, but we use even more broth. Two to six qts/wk during the cool months is normal here. Both bread crumbs and broth are Must Haves as pantry staples because they are such versatile time savers. They make it easy to add that extra touch to even quick meals.

    • Melissa

      If I have to pick just one dish, it would be “Asparagus Casserole.” That pretty blue spoon would look really good scooping out some onto my plate. :)

    • Kim C

      I cannot choose just ONE dish. I love my family so very much and we all pitch in and bring a dish or two. Most of the recipes came from my Grandmother. She would be so proud to know that we’ve carried her love for food down many generations. I can narrow it down to four dishes… is that okay ? Sweet Cornbread dressing. Macaroni and cheese (My hubby won’t let me make anything but boxed, he doesn’t like actual homemade. He’s weird I know), Pea salad and then my brother’s deep fried turkey.

      Mmmm, I’m getting hungry just thinking about that food.

    • Beth

      Sausage stuffing!!

    • I know it sounds weird, but dessert of chocolate torte royale, a family tradition.

    • ET

      My mama’s stuffing!

    • HSH

      Sweet Potato Praline. My mother passed away recently so this year is my first attempt to carry on the tradition!! Wish me luck!

    • Michele

      It’s gotta be the stuffing!

    • Lisa Watson

      I would have to say cranberry sauce! It’s not technically a dish but gosh, it makes such a great addition to the meal! I love it with turkey and cornbread dressing and even plain!

    • Amy

      My mother’s dressing!

    • Kristen

      It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without homemade stuffing!

    • Melinda

      It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without my Mom’s dressing and gravey. No one makes dressing like my Mom. She’s 84 years old and still makes the dressing for our large family gatherings at Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    • LD

      The one dish is hamburger stuffing . It is something the women [Canadian French] in my family have done for generations. I am not sure my older girls are carrying on this tradition . But when I was not able to cook anymore my husband had taken up the duty of making this dish . So in my house the tradition goes on !!

    • carol velasco

      My moms squash casserole!

    • Brenda

      It would be my mothers cornbread dressing. As far as I am concerned she makes the best! It is made we chicken and a lot of this and that but the most important ingredient is the love.

    • For our family, the Thanksgiving meal would be incomplete without Grannie’s dressing. It is amazing. We also love Sweet Potato Casserole (the one with brown sugar and pecans on top).

    • Jennifer

      My mom’s Cranberry Fluff Salad!

    • Becky T

      IT would not be thanksgiving without my Nanny’s Giblet gravy and my moms dressing.

    • Risa

      It would have to be…….. Dressing and cranberry sauce (oops -that’s 2!!)
      Happy Thanksgiving!

    • Tricia

      Our family tradition is that everyone makes at least one dish – I remember my 2-year-old son carefully cutting up squash with a plastic knife for squash casserole. He’s 10 now, and still makes it every year, even though he won’t eat it! So we have to have that, the pecan pie my second daughter usually overbakes, the green beans my third daughter does, sweet potatoes from my oldest, plus whatever innovation catches my fourth daughter’s eye. And all of them pitch in to make the cornbread dressing.

    • Tiffany

      I have to have my grandmother’s broccoli casserole made with cheez-its, although I may have to give it a trial run with the panko bread crumbs!

    • Dina

      It will not be Thanksgiving without homemade stuffing!

    • Kim

      My mom’s homemade dressing balls.

    • Carol

      I love my green bean casserole, but with a little twist…velveeta cheese. It just wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without it! :-)

    • Pamela

      My cornbread dressing made with Pepperidge Farm Herb Stuffing is the time best. Also my Pumpkin Pie.

    • Merrilee

      wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie topped with 3″ of whipped cream!

    • Andrew

      Cope’s dried sweet corn. It’s not Thanksgiving without it! (Even had Mom send it to Spain when I lived there.)

    • Lauren

      I would have to say sweet potatoes… but not the gooey casserole, the smooth mashed sweet potatoes. Gotta have em! Reminds me a bit of Texas!

    • Katherine

      Teryaki Turkey! My husband is half Japanese so we usually do an East-Meets-West kind of meal: Delicious!

    • Becky

      Homemade cornbread dressing with gravy—-I can almost taste it now!

    • Mary

      i’m sitting here trying to think of one thing….first i thought turkey, but one year we had enchiladas and it was great. then i thought… sweet potatoes or pumpkin pie, but you know what? it’d still be thanksgiving no matter what was on the table as long as my family was around it to share it.?

    • Joyce

      Love that pumpkin pie! and mom’s dressing smothered in turkey gravy. Yum!

    • Beth

      Sweet potato casserole with pecan pie top

    • Carolyn

      Little creamed onions! It’s the only time of year we have them, but they are sooo good with the trukey and stuffing! Mmmmmmmm.

    • Delanna

      Cinnamon apples. I can remember then being my favorite at my grandmother’s house growing up. Now my own children can’t get enough of them. They are the first thing gone at Thanksgiving dinner. I think the kids like them because they are soft, cold, and colored red.

    • Lissa

      My husband’s family was Amish, and they make SUCH GOOD FOOD. And they would cringe to hear me say this, but it just wouldn’t be Thanksgiving to me without Canned Cranberry Sauce. :O/ My Mother-In-Law started asking me to just bring my own. :O)

    • Stephanie

      Broccoli cheese casserole!!

    • Jennifer

      It wouldn’t be thanksgiving without home made apple pie. Yum!

    • Marsha

      I use these bread crumbs to make coconut shrimp…yummy! Will probably make some as appetizers for T-giving.

    • My favorite Thanksgiving dishes would have to be homemade mashed potatoes and sweet potato casserole. The holidays make me miss my mom and her wonderful cooking! Be sure to enjoy your moms this holiday season…tell them how much you appreciate them and love them!
      I wish I could just one more time!

    • Rhonda

      Teeny tiny sweet pickles served in a crystal pickle dish (the only time it comes out of the china cabinet).

    • shannon

      Cornbread Dressing is my all time favorite.

    • Joy

      My favorite was always my grandmothers homemade dressing. She passed away 6 (almost 7) years ago. No one has her recipe, although knowing the cook she was, she probably just made it by memory. Thanksgiving has never been the same since, but the memory of her standing in the kitchen smiling so happy to see her family (and the smell of that YUMMY dressing) will live on forever.

    • Ashley

      It has to be homemade dressing.. Yum Yum

    • Stacie

      SIMPLE! Couldn’t be Thanksgiving without Opa’s homemade dressing! Happy Thanksgiving!

    • Linda Stees

      It would have to be wonderfully moist cornbread dressing made from scratch. In my mind that’s a truly Southern dish, so it pleases me that even some of my relatives by marriage who are native to the North (that includes my husband) want to be sure that it’s on the menu! It definitely will be.

    • sara

      My grandmother’s cornbread dressing. I have tried to recreate it every year since her passing, but it just isn’t the same.

    • Alyssa

      I love pecan pie and Mom’s sage stuffing, but it is having friends and family around me that REALLY makes it Thanksgiving.

    • Tanya

      This one is easy. OCEAN SPRAY WHOLE CRANBERRY SAUCE! (Even better if I had coupons!)


      • Kim C

        This made me LOL. I think EVERYTHING is better with a coupon ! ;o)

    • Kevin

      Thanksgiving is not complete without a big serving of sweet potato casserole. A sweet potato pie could be substituted if it’s the only option available.

    • Mary

      my dad’s rolls. croissant dough rolled around marshmellow and cinnamon sugar and baked! Yummy!!!

      • Kim C

        This sounds delish ! Do you have the recipe you can share ?

    • Elon

      Pumpkin Pie

    • Janie

      Good ole turkey and cornbread dressing. The Best. Happy Thanksgiving!

    • pamela

      It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without soft, fluffy, homemade noodles! YUM!

    • Traci M.

      It is not Thanksgiving without the Stuffing………and of course Pumpkin Pie (had to choose two, Thanksgiving is too yummy for just one ! ) Have a great one !

    • Lori

      Candied Yams

    • Jennifer W

      That’s easy. My Mommas cornbread dressing. She makes the biscuits & cornbread from scratch and then puts them into the best dressing ever! She mushes the dressing down into a pan and seves it in little squares. It looks a little odd but tastes wonderful. Forget the turkey & mashed potatoes, just give me the plate of dressing.

    • Tricia

      Pumpkin Pie!! Yummy!!

    • It would not be Thanksgiving without sweet potato casserole!

    • Jarrod

      Sweet Potatoes with Pecans on top and Grand Mariner Orange Sauce! Without this it’s just not Thanksgiving!

    • Rita

      The dressing all the other dishes I can fix anytime but the dressing that goes with the turkey is only fixed on Thanksgiving at our house.

    • Lindsey

      It wouldn’t be Thanksgivng without my grandma’s cherries in the snow!!!(My mouth is watering just thinking about it)

    • Christie

      Got to be the cornbread dressing!!!! (and the turkey of course!) thanks for the giveaway!

    • Without a doubt it’s my mama’s dressing!!!! It’s so moist and yummy. Everyone loves my mama’s dressing. (Some even eat it cold.)It’s a southern comfort thang ya’ll. :D Hope I win for mama!!!!

    • Bethany Short

      I can’t resist the green bean casserole! YUM!

    • Cathi Carpenter

      It is alllllllllllllllll about the STUFFING!! My grandmother who passed away last month made the BEST BEST BEST stuffing …. I’m pretty good…but hers……GREAT!

    • Gina

      My mom’s mac ‘n’ cheese.

    • C Matson

      Deviled Eggs

    • Kristi

      A homemade carrot cake!!!

    • Lizzy

      Turkey…this year, my husband’s family decided to just have lasagna for Thanksgiving, and as you can imagine, I’m VERY bummed. It just won’t be Thanksgiving without a real turkey dinner. :(

    • Bethany

      My mom’s stuffing. The last 2 years I have gone to my husband’s aunt’s house (who is Italian) and had to endure some very odd dishes for Thanksgiving. This year I’m super-excited to be going to my parents’ house for the holiday and having the stuffing I grew up on!

    • Sweet potato casserole- without a doubt!

    • It would definitely not be Thanksgiving without the turkey and mashed potatoes!!

    • Rebecca Jean

      Thanksgiving is not complete without having Pumpkin Pie with lots of fat free whip cream. Makes me feel better that something is fat free. LOL.

    • Sylvia

      It would have to be sweet potato souffle!

    • Damien

      Definitely Sweet Potato Casserole.

    • casey

      my mom’s cornbread dressing. she does not use a recipe, just by taste. this year i am standing behind her and writing it all down!!! :)

    • Jenny Q.

      Ok, so we have always called it “sweet potatoes and marshmallows”. My dad always made 1/2 with walnuts and 1/2 without :-)
      Thanks so much for all you do Jenny!!!

    • Jamie

      I can honestly have Thanksgiving without any traditional food as long as I have my family with me…. (but it is always nice to have that good big bowl of home-made mashed potatoes.)

    • Leigh

      It would not be thanksgiving without my aunt’s Broccoli Casserole…..no one makes it like she does! yum!

    • Teresa

      Apple Pie!!

    • Carrie

      For me, it wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without corn casserole or pumpkin pie. This is my first Thanksgiving being married, and I’m so excited to get to cook and spend the holiday with my wonderful husband and family! That’s what makes it Thanksgiving for me!

    • cindylouwho

      It wouldn’t be thanksgiving without cornbread stuffing! :) Happy Thanksgiving Jenny

    • Jenni

      For Thanksgiving, stuffing is a must. Made with cornbread, celery, and chicken broth, and baked in the oven. HmmmmMMMM good! We call it stuffing, but we dont stuff the turkey with it, but make 2 huge pans of it.

    • becka

      Pumpkin Pie! :) Yummo.

    • Karen

      Without a ton of leftovers!

    • kristin

      Gravy…lots and lots of gravy!

    • easy…Toll House Pie! (forget the dinner part! )

    • Amber

      Turkey, of course!!

    • Gabe

      I am going to say Turkey! :)

      But as for side dishes, I will say mashed potatoes.

    • aubrae

      Squash Casserole (made with plain breadcrumbs)

    • Alena

      My mom (bless her heart) makes 17 dishes for Thanksgiving. My favorite is her broccoli casserole.

    • Sarah

      My grandmas home made stuffing! MMMMMMM

    • Tanya

      My mom’s homemade dressing and gravy!!! I am, for the first time ever trying to make it this year so keep your fingers crossed the family doesn’t evict me from the gathering, if it doesn’t turn out!!!

    • Beth

      It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without Buttermilk Custard pie. YUMMY!!!! Going to bake 4 of them now!

    • Megan

      Green bean casserole! I love those little crispy fried onions on the top.

    • Tracy Miller

      There are too many dishes to choose just one but my favorite is green bean casserole! Happy Thanksgiving!

    • carmel

      After growing up as a vegetarian in California, I can now proudly say, “It’s not Thanksgiving without TURKEY!”

    • Lori Davidson

      It would not be Thanksgiving without my mom’s dressing!

      Thanks for all that you do!

    • Tonda

      My mom’s homemade cranberries Jello Salad.

    • MindiW

      I can’t live without some cranberry sauce.

    • Ginny

      Even when we weren’t able to be with family for Thanksgiving, I still would make the dressing that my mom made when we were growing up. It’s a mixture of a little bit of everything and has changed throughout the years, but it’s still not Thanksgiving without it. …. I may have to make some tonight :o

    • Melinda

      Pumpkin pie!

    • Tarrah R.

      It DEFINATELY would not be Thanksgiving without Mashed Potatoes. I know that’s a given, but one year, EVERYONE forgot them, and we all came away feeling a little ’empty’. But Not our tummies, of course!

    • Susan S.

      It would not be Thanksgiving without Sweet Potato Casserole topped with pecan/brown sugar topping!!! But most of all it would not be Thanksgiving without being thankful for family!!!!

    • It would definitely not be Thanksgiving for me without sweet potato souffle, complete with lots of brown sugar atop!

    • Krissi

      It would not be Thanksgiving with out DRESSING not stuffing but Dressing or I should say Dressin’. My Meme made it for us and now that she is an angel in heaven my mom makes it and it would definitely not feel like thanksgiving without it.

    • Jaimi

      My dad’s famous pecan pie!

    • Carlye

      After Mom and I cook for 3 days, and clean up after 30 or more people, we are too tired and still too busy trying to make our guests happy and cater to all of the children. My favorite is the bowl of turkey, mashed taters, gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce and green bean casserole all mixed up and nuked in the microwave. Everything is cleaned up, everyone is gone, and Mom and I get to put our feet up and just enjoy.

    • Sweet Potato Casserole

    • Lisa

      Granny’s cornbread dressing….thankfully she taught us how to make it!!

    • Tinap

      At our house it is not Thanksgiving without my husbands “fried” turkey!! YUM… I did have the fire department on stand by the first year he used his fryer!!

    • Megan

      My husband’s smoked turkeys and two batches of dressing – regular cornbread, then crawfish dressing. Both of which could not be made without lots of yummy broth! : )-

    • Rachel

      My grandmothers homemade yeast rolls….. they melt in your mouth!

    • Beth

      The one dish that makes our Thanksgiving memorable (and honorable) is a ribeye steak. My brother could not stand ham or turkey so each year he was made a ribeye for Thanksgiving (and Christmas) dinner. He passed away a few years back about a month before Thanksgiving, but every year, along with the turkey and ham that is served, we all enjoy a bit of a grilled ribeye steak. We know he is smiling down upon us enjoying his steak right along with us :)

      • Tarrah R.

        LOVE this…I got choked up! Beautiful story. God Bless you!

    • Susan

      Champagne Brunch

    • Catherine

      It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without my mama’s cornbread dressing! The recipe has been handed down from my Nanny, to my mama, to me. I love the way the celery and sage makes the house smell when it is cooking. It is the smell of Thanksgiving to me!

    • aimee

      Sweet potato souffle

    • Sonya

      It would not be Thanksgiving to me without sweet potato casserole with marshmallows on top. It always reminds me of of my grandmother, who was an excellent cook.

    • Andrea Watts

      I have to have dressing!

    • Amber

      It would not be Thanksgiving without my mother’s dressing. I always have 2 or 3 servings and take leftovers home!!

    • Marianne

      It would not be Thanksgiving without our delicious fried turkey! My grandfather does two every year for us.

    • Alissa

      Definitely dressing!

    • Rachel

      Mashed potatoes and gravy!! Yummy!!!

    • kelly

      Rice Dressing…

    • Sharon

      Deviled eggs!!! oh and Dutch apple crumb pie with lots of cool whip!

    • Natasha

      I always look forward to my grandmother Grace’s dressing. There was always a small pan just for me with no onions :) Now that she has went on to be with the Lord, my aunt has taken the baton and it tastes just the same! I told her last year that grandmother Grace would be proud!! So thankful for my family & for dressing!! :)

    • sherry T

      For me it’s the cranberry sauce. Doesn’t matter if it slithers from the can and sliced or some fancy fresh cranberry relish. I love the cranberry at Thanksgiving!

    • Dressing is a must for Thanksgiving!

    • Amanda

      The Post-Thanksgiving Thanksgiving Sandwich – Toasted bread with turkey breast meat, stuffing, gravy and cranberry sauce. One bite and you’re in heaven!

    • Sherry

      It just would not be Thanksgiving without Granny’s Promised Land Sweet Potato Pie. The pie, family, friends and many wonderful memories just make Thanksgiving so special.

    • Pam

      Our Thanksgiving is not complete without caramel pie!

    • sarah

      It would not be Thanksgiving without a traditional polish dish- perogis! The best goodness rapped in fried dough… mmmm!!

    • Melanie

      simply would not be Thanksgiving without my Grandmother’s candied sweet potatoes and all my family surrounding the table!

    • Momma’s dressing and candied yams – Hands down!

    • Christy

      No Thanksgiving of mine could ever be without my moms cornbread dressing that is cooked inside the Turkey. When the family is gathered, our thanks are given, and grace is shared, there is nothing better than mom’s turkey cornbread dressing with the juiciest white turkey meat covered in the juices from the pan of the turkey with homemade mashed potatoes and gravy. Thanks Mom…… it is the best!!!

    • couponssssssss

      We call it macaroni pie, and our family must have it for Thanksgiving. It’s made with cooked rotini noodles tossed in butter to which you add 1 can of evaporated milk, 1 beaten egg, and a lb of sharp cheddar cheese! Stick it back in the oven for 30 minutes to cook up, and you’ll never go back to box mac and cheese again. Don’t try to substitute anything else for the curly noodles; it’s just not the same.

    • Couponpearl

      One thing… Hands down its my Baked Mac N Cheese. We add some extra flavor by using part Pepper Jack Cheese with the Sharp Chedder, it adds a ton of Flavor (everyone loves it). We also mix PROGRESSO BREAD CRUMBS and butter for a crumb topping then sprinkle Paprika on top. YUMMY!!

    • Linda

      It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie with whipped cream! Yummy!!!

    • Mary

      My mom’s potato salad and mother-in-law’s cornbread dressing.

    • Pamela

      I’ve continued my Mother’s tradition of making her Mince Pies – she added cherry pie filling & crushed pineapple & pecans. She took one to all her doctors, pharmacists, nurses & all those who had helped her throughout the year. It was almost healthy!

    • Amanda

      It’s hard to pick just one! My favorite dish is the whipped sweet potatoes and bananas. Yum!

    • Charlotte



    • Brianna

      My mom’s made from scratch Macaroni & Cheese.

    • Kirsty

      It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without cornbread dressing at our house. :)

    • Debbie

      It is hard to pick just one, since thanksgiving is such a traditional holiday. It would have to be Turkey.

    • Natasha

      wouldn’t be thanksgiving without homemade mac-n-cheese! YUMMO!

    • Sandy

      Thanksgiving would not be the same with out Turnipgreens flavored with backbones. I always have to cook a huge pot for my family and by the end of the night it is completely empty.

    • Michelle Fowler

      Fried Cauliflower. My mother has made this since I was young. There was a steakhouse in Atlanta that used to bring itout inseat of bread. I can not imagine a holiday meal without it!!

    • Harriett

      As much as turkey is key to Thanksgiving dinner I would say stuffing is tied with it. My favorite Thanksgiving dish is my Nana’s homemade cornbread stuffing with homemade gravy. She always made extra gravy for me without the giblets.

    • Dianne

      It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without Turkey and Cornbread Stuffing! For dessert there simply must be Pumpkin Pie with whipped cream…mmmmm…making my mouth water!

    • Beth Walling

      Turkey – Of course!!

    • Lorraine Rose

      I just have to have turkey and dressing on Thanksgiving. I know it’s simplistic, but really, without it, It would just be another meal. The day wouldn’t lose its meaning, but the meal itself would lose its specialness.

    • Elizabeth Whitman

      Turkey, stuffing and gravy. It’s really one dish. Wouldn’t be thanksgiving without it.

    • Amanda

      My late grandmothers famous yeast rolls. The best! And add them into stuffing…..mmmm.

    • Teresa Ginn

      Dressiing! Sometimes we have turkey through out the year, but Thanksgiving is the only time we have the dressing, and it is so yummy! Thanks for your site – it is awesome! :o)

    • Heather

      I would have to say that since I started helping my grandmother out with some of the cooking I have thoroughly enjoyed making broccoli casserole & crockpot macaroni. The recipes I have found for these 2 dishes are so simple & taste amazing! Every time we have something at work I am asked to bring both of these! YUMMY!!

    • Christine

      Turkey of course, oh and a bottle of wine (does that count as a side dish?????)

    • Keanna

      You can’t have Thanksgiving without my mothers Deviled Eggs. Some families don’t do them, but our’s does- and when I get married to my Fiance and have kids, so will our family too. :)

    • Jenna

      It would definetly not be the same without cranberry relish. We make it with fresh cranberries, apples and and orange. It is the awww on the table when we start to eat. YUM YUM.

    • Pineapple casserole. lol My husband has request from his co-workers for me to make it every year. It is quick and easy and this week it is cheap with the free pineapple and cheap Ritz at publix.

    • Keisha Hill

      My favorite as a child was always green bean casserole, but as an adult I’m trying to branch out! I’ve realized this year, as I prepare to host out of state family for the first time in my new home, I just want to make everyone else’s favorites. That should cover any whims I have!

    • sweet potato casserole!

    • Jennifer Bryant

      It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without the midnight leftovers sandwich….Turkey, mayo, stuffing, and a little cranberry sauce!!! I even dream of it while I’m eating the actual Thanksgiving meal! How silly is that??!

    • It would not be Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie :-)

    • Amy

      Greenbean Casserole!

    • Machelle

      Definitely Italian Herb Stuffing made with sour dough bread..cranberry sauce is a must with this dish (and gravy on it all is sublime)! Maybe the cranberry sauce is a dish of it’s own if you make it at home like we do but the stuffing w/ gravy is definitely one dish at my house..lol :)

    • Ivy Hudson

      Well the turkey is the one thing I can’t have Thanksgiving without. One year we went and ordered Chinese take out, was way too weird for us. I don’t recall why we did that, but we had Thanksgiving dinner the next night. My son, who’s in college told me this year, no going out, he wants turkey at home for Thanksgiving.

    • Pumpkin Pie – it’s my favorite but I only make it at the Holidays to help keep it special!

    • mel

      Mac and cheese , and green bean casserole!

    • meg

      Cornbread and sauasage stuffing…great grandma’s recipe!

    • Say

      It would have to be homemade mashed potatoes with lots of butter to go with great turkey that every Thanksgiving dinner have.

    • Vicki :)

      PUMPKIN PIE. Something would be wrong if we didn’t have that.

    • Upstate Michelle

      It would not be Thanksgiving without sweet potatoe casserole with marshmellows on top!! Yummo!!

    • michelle

      Mac and cheese is a must! Who cares about turkey??

    • Well this Thanksgiving we will not have any actual dishes, instead we will be arriving in Ethiopia picking up our new daughter! So I will have to say this will be the best thanksgiving ever! So my can’t live without is meeting our daughter for the first time!

    • Cindy

      Mom’s southern dressing (made with a hen instead of turkey) and unfortunately I won’t have some until Christmas, I am with my sweet in-laws for Thanksgiving.

    • Katie

      It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving if I didn’t make pumpkin cheesecake!!

    • Lori

      Definately grandma’s cornbread dressing! Yum-yum

    • Megan

      Definitely stuffing. We usually grill out steaks instead of making a turkey, but I still have to make a pan of stuffing!

    • Jennifer

      Thanksgiving would not be complete without homemade mashed potatoes and cornbread dressing.

    • At mom’s is not Thanksgiving if we don’t have a roast pork.

    • Michelle

      Cornbread dressing!

    • Jan

      Grannie’s collard greens!

    • Sarah

      It wouldn’t be thanksgiving without sweet potato casserole with pecans or marshmallows on top-yum!

    • Rebecca

      My mother inlaws mac and cheese!

    • Katie

      BBQ ribs, of course! When my aunt was in college, she asked her dad (my grandpa) to make his famous ribs on his old steel smoker for Thanksgiving. He did that every year until he was 84 – his last Thanksgiving. Now, the other men in the family have taken over the delicious tradition on the same smoker. While we have other goodies with the ribs, it’s those that everyone goes for first.

    • Sabrina Williams

      My mama’s homemade baked mac & cheese!

    • Melody Carpenter

      I love stuffing!

    • Dana

      Pecan Pie!!! :)

    • Shelli

      Mashed potatoes with homemade gravy!! I could have just turkey with mashed potatoes & gravy, and I’d be happy! :)

    • Catherine

      Sweet potato souffle from Honeybaked Ham is one of my many favorites of this holiday.

    • Debbie

      My father made cornbread dressing every year for Christmas and Thanksgiving. He was a wonderfull old fashioned country cook up till he passed away at the age of 92. I hate to say it, but I think it was the broth he used with all the grease from the turkey still in it. That grease did not seem to affect his health at all. He was however very active and kept a vegetable garden going in his ripe old age. I will try each year to come close to his delicious savory dressing. I am close, but I think I just need to close my eyes and dump in some of that good ole turkey broth with the drippings still in it. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

    • Jennifer

      Can’t do just one – Mawmaw’s dressing and Granny’s sweet potato casserole!

    • laura

      Dressing for sure. My mom makes cornbread dressing from scratch – can’t imagine Thanksgiving without it!! Yum!!

    • Ashley in FL

      I can’t go without cranberry sauce and crescent rolls!!

    • Becky

      Green bean casserole. Probably more so since we used to celebrate Thanksgiving in Brasil (my parents were missionaries) and that was one dish we could make down there.

    • Amanda Y

      Sweet potatoes! Either candied and/or with marshmellows!

    • lisa

      My mom’s homemade dressing and rolls. Yummy!

    • Suzanne

      For my six year old grandson Shawn, my pumpkin pie!

    • Amanda W

      My Memaw’s Chicken and Dumplings and Cornbread Dressing!

    • Joy


    • Angela

      My husband and I met on eHarmony. We caught each other’s attention when we each had mentioned that our respective families serves a course of manicotti before the turkey and traditional fixings on Thanksgiving. It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without our favorite Italian baked dish of manicotti! Without it, we might never have had those first conversations that brought us together!

    • Erin Stanford

      Grandpa’s Potato Salad

    • Farah

      Green bean casserole is the best!

    • Gwen

      Cornbread dressing and giblet gravy!

    • Jess

      My favorite dish is a pot of southern green beans simmered all day with bacon ,chicken broth,onions and new potatoes…no matter where I am for Thanksgiving I make these beans!

    • Jeanna A.

      Turkey! I know, it’s obvious, but honestly, we could serve anything with it (and boy have we!) and it’s okay. I love turkey on Thanksgiving with a nice side of carbs, followed by more random carbs and a slice of dessert. :P

    • Marie

      It would not be Thanksgiving for me unless I had my boyfriend’s cornbread and giblet stuffing.

    • Tammie

      My Mom’s Dressing

    • Stuffing! I don’t know why but Thanksgiving is the only time I fix it

    • amanda

      mom’s sweet potato casserole! we all come home JUST for this!

    • Diane

      It’s gotta be the stuffing – a recipe I found in the Sacramento, CA Bee 37 years ago with corn bread, sausage, jalepeno peppers plus the usual clery, onions and Progresso broth among other ingedients.

    • Susan

      Sweet Potato Casserole for us!!!!

    • My Husband’s Mother’s sage dressing made with progresso broth. She puts a lot of love in all her dishes! She is a sweety.

    • myra

      My sweet potato casserole……my whole family loves it. My mom passed away when I was 30 (been 16 yrs) and the last year she was sick I cooked the Thanksgiving dinner and have done it eversince that. It’s one thing they all request.

      • myra

        oh yea my sweet potatoe casserole is topped with pecans and drizzled with butter!!!!!!

    • gina

      plain old pumpkin pie with lots of whipped cream!!!

    • Kathrine Rend

      Thanksgiving wouldn’t seem right without Watergate Salad!


      I also add Maraschino Cherries.

      • Tammy Davenport

        Hmmm. I never thought about adding cherries. I make this every Thanksgiving. I am going to try it with cherries this year. Thanks for the tip!!

      • Tammy Davenport

        Oh…do you add the cherries whole?

    • Shannon

      Con Fritters!

    • Elena

      My mom’s yummy potato salad!!!

    • Karina

      My fiance and his mom make the yummiest flan.

    • Jennie

      Scalloped Oysters!

    • A MUST HAVE on our Thanksgiving table is my wife’s Chicken and Cornbread Dressing. Our Thanksgiving meal just isn’t complete without this mouth-watering entree.

    • Kim

      My dad’s homeade dressing and I guess my turkey that everyone relies on me to make every year now!

    • Green Bean Casserole!! Yum!

    • Trish

      Fried Turkey and Gravy!!!

    • Barb

      My “pink salad”. We love it with the fruit coctail, jello, whipped topping and cottage cheese. I know sounds kinda gross with the cottage cheese but YUM!!

    • Leigh Anne

      My mom’s zucchini casserole! Yum!

    • Amber

      My momma’s mac-n-cheese…it is a recipe that was passed down from my grandmother. And no cutting calories – it is full of butter, grated sharp cheddar cheese, eggs, and milk. It is heaven in a casserole dish!

    • Lauren

      the canned jello-like cranberry sauce. Not the real stuff.

    • Thanksgiving is not complete without the sweet potato casserole…the kind with the sweet, crunchy topping. It’s the best!!!!

    • Melanie H.

      My Granny’s Green Beans and Potatoes – she cooks them in way too much vegetable oil buy boy are they good!!!!

    • Nicole

      I would have to say that Thanksgiving would not be Thanksgiving without my husband’s homemade cornbread dressing or my caramel pecan pumpkin pie.

    • Claire

      Hmmm, it’a a toss-up between stuffing and mashed potatoes!

    • My Mother-in-Law’s Southern Cornbread Dressing! She just taught me how to make it after 13 years of begging!

    • Anita

      My grandmother’s cornbread dressing with giblet gravy. Homemade all the way and makes Thanksgiving…well, Thanksgiving.

    • Jenny

      Wow, There are a lot of comments. I would have to say anything made with progresso broth or bread crumbs would be my favorite =)

    • Laura

      Pumpkin Pie! Hope the stores don’t sell out of the pumpkin!

      I have tried the new Panko Breadcrumbs, and we like them! Put them on top of the mac & cheese we made for thanksgiving earlier this week!

    • Jenny Wu

      Cornbread dressing with fresh Apalachicola oysters tucked into at least half the pan. Only half the family eats oysters so this way everyone is happy:)

    • sarah

      Having a hard time deciding, we always have so much delicious food…but I’d probably say my Grandma’s Macaroni & cheese!! It is so rich, but oh so good :) (when i say rich i mean rich…lots of sharp & extra sharp cheddar cheese, cream cheese & canned milk)

    • Alicia

      not thanksgiving without g-ma’s dressing!!!!

    • Patty Brennan

      Good old potatoes. Both mashed and sweet.

    • Tonya

      It would not be Thanksgiving for me without my Grandmas Cornbread dressing! She gave me her recipe this year :)

    • LaDora

      Thanksgiving wouldn’t be Thanksgiving at our house without my mama’s Barbeque Bean Dish! Yum! Can’t wait till Thanksgiving!


    • Diane

      It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving dinner without the dressing and cranberry sauce.

    • Laura

      Sweet Potatoes Casserole!! Can’t wait for it.

    • Sadly, my nieces and nephews have not taken to this dish like me and my siblings, but my mom’s “Pink Stuff” is a must! I think everyone has a variant and call it different things, but it’s a salad made of jello and fruit cocktail, mixed with whip cream. That is ALWAYS part of thanksgiving! ^_^

    • Angela P

      Well of course the usuals are a must: Mashed Taters, Green Bean Casserole, pumpkin pie….. But because it is special to my husband I would have to say Creamed Onions (his Mom ued to make them). That reminds me…. I better add that to my shopping list!

    • Jennifer

      Wow, that is a hard one! I would have to say, the age old classic, stuffing. My Nana’s is the best, with giblet gravy on top, mmm-mmm good!

    • Lisa Thornton

      Turkey and Dressing!!!! I could eat an entire pan!

    • Stacey

      For me, it would not be thanksgiving without green olives! It has been a family tradition for as long as I can remember.. While the food is being prepared, everyone stands around the table and grazes on olives. My uncle LOVED them and always made it a point to bring a jar or two. He passed away in 1998 and since then its a taboo to forget olives!!

    • Heather

      My mom’s cornbread dressing. I can’t wait for Thursday.

    • Jennifer

      Not being from the south, our traditions are different from here. But 1 item I like to make is candied yams. Canned yams (2 cans) poured into a dish with brown sugar and butter. Bake it till hot and then add marshmallows to the top of it and broil it for a few seconds (watch it). I love these soooo much!

    • Nisha

      I love to have smashed potatos with little bit spicy on thanks giving day.

    • Renee

      Sweet Potatoes.

    • Ronda

      it won’t thanksgiving without Pecan Pie or dressing. My granny makes to best dressing. I make it the same as her and hers is always better. My oldest son is vegan now and I we will have a tradition. Vegan sweet potatoe casserole and vegan pecan pie. I’ve mad the sp casserole and it was wonderful..

    • Karey

      I can’t live without stuffing on Thanksgiving! I love the stuff!

    • It would not be Thanksgiving without Mom’s homemade dressing and gravy!

      It’s the best!

    • GaMom1983

      Sweet potatoe casserole and broccoli casserole! We sometimes change from the traditional turkey to ham or rib roast, but the two constants are always sweet potatoe casserole and broccoli casserole! I couldn’t choose which is my favorite, LoL.

    • Connie

      It absolutely would not be Thanksgiving without coconut cake and fruit salad. If that sounds old fashioned, it’s because those are my Granny’s two favorite things and they have been our holiday tradition for generations. We use fresh coconut and put the coconut milk in the cake batter in place of the water. We make 7 minute frosting and grate the coconut meat on top (add powdered sugar to the grated coconut if you like more sweetness). The fruit salad is a combination of fresh and canned fruits with the juice reserved for punch. Delicious, and thrifty.

    • Wendy

      I must have sweet potato souffle, but not with marshmellows.

    • Kristen

      It would not be Thanksgiving without my mom’s homemade mashed potatoes and mac & cheese!

    • Jennifer

      It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving for me without my mom’s homemade stuffing!

    • Kamille

      Definitely not Thanksgiving without squash casserole!!

    • Janet

      Candied Sweet Potatoes!!! YUM!!!

    • Sarah R

      It would not be Thanksgiving without Sweet Potato Souffle. YUM!

    • Barbara

      don’t know how or why but our thanksgiving HAS TO HAVE mashed rutabagas…..salted, with a bit of butter…..

    • Natalie

      My grandma’s recipe for SOUTHERN PECAN PIE. It’s a more expensive pie to make, and loaded with fat and calories, but every bite is worth it!

    • nina

      its a tie – turtle pumpkin pie , and tatertot casserole! yum!

    • carol

      I gotta be honest here, mom passed away a couple of years ago and no one can ever duplicate your mothers cooking and how it tasted. While I still enjoy the holidays with my children and my dad, the taste of the holiday meal will never be the same for me without her cooking it. Holidays are for happy memories though and I have plenty of those. Happy Thanksgiving!!

    • nancy

      Southern style collard greens. Though perhaps not a sweet or starch it makes you feel like you are being healthy to some degree even if it is made with a ham bone. It reminds me of my Grandmother and her home cooking.

    • Paula Rowell

      Pumpkin pie with fresh whipped cream!

    • It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving for me without my Granny’s dressing! All of her daughters have tried to make it like her, but it she just has some type of magic!

    • Elizabeth M.

      I almost didn’t enter this until I realized I hate a Thanksgiving that doesn’t come with my cousin Pat’s Sweet Potato pie. I know, you’re thinking “Pie, so what.” But this pie is light, nay, fluffy with a hint of orange. It’s seriously addictive. I am truly considering taking a 3000 mile trip home just to be in the kitchen with her to learn how she makes it. It’s over the moon good!

      Elizabeth M.

    • Robin W

      My mother’s homemade chocolate pies.

    • Anna

      It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without the TURKEY!!!! yum. yum.

    • Denise

      Sweet potato casserole.

    • Lynette


    • Penny

      My mama’s cornbread dressing!

    • Annamarie

      I can’t wait for my mother in law’s cranberry gelitin with the whipped topping and the pineapple cassarole!

    • iris elliott

      Since I am so totally southern, I would have to say I could never image Thanksgiving with dressing (stuffing not in the turkey) and gravy. Even though my Grandma never made good dressing the gravy was able to literally cover a multitude of culinary transgression that were made. My Mom had the best recipe handed down from her Mom. Secret to great dressing is a ton of sage. Now-a-days, my sister makes the dressing with a recipe that includes of things, yellow squash. This Thanksgiving the torch will be passed to my daughter. Traditions a legacy that needs to continue. Thanks Southernsaver for being a lighthouse during a tough economic time.

    • Megan

      I have to have mashed potatoes! Can’t wait, LOVE them!! Thanks for the great giveaway.

    • casey

      i’m thankful for all of the dishes, especially when so many go without. But, if pushed to pick this year, I’d have to say I can’t wait for the sweet potato casserole.

    • Marykay

      Definitely Pumpkin pie! If I HAD to pick one:)

    • Janelle Wilder

      Thanksgiving would not be complete without my warm Pumpkin Cobbler dessert with Chopped Pecans on top and a scoop of vanilla icecream on the side. YUMMY! I can’t wait, my mouth waters thinking about it. Happy Thanksgiving

    • Denna

      It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving for me without good ole’ southern pan dressing! Pour some turkey gravy over it and you have yourself a feast! I’m getting hungry just thinking about it!!

    • Jenn C.

      the turkey!!!! gobble, gobble… :)

    • Melissa

      I love to have Butternut Squash Casserole!

    • Nikki J.

      Since I am a vegetarian, any of the nonmeat dishes will do. And I pass on the sweets…am not a big sweet tooth. :)

    • It isn’t Thanksgiving without Dressing! I love it no matter how it is served.

    • Jessica Janes

      My aunt’s cabbage salad. I don’t really know if that is the official name, but it has cabbage, ramen noddles, almonds and it is my favorite dish ever. I am so hungry now!!

    • Lisa

      Mmmm… green bean casserole with those yummy fried onions.

    • Alissa

      My Aunt Debbie’s dressing!

    • Anne

      I miss my Mother’s fruit ambrosia!

    • Denise

      Thanksgiving would not be the same without cornbread stuffing.

    • Carrie

      Mashed potatoes…yum…yum.

    • Amy

      I have to have sweet potato casserole!

    • baby_mama

      it would not be the same without my mom’s sausage stuffing…

    • Fibia

      I have to say… sweet potato casserole, with caramelized marshmallows on top…

    • Kimber

      squash casserole..

    • Jessica

      Mashed potatoes!!!

    • Fibia

      Sweet potato casserole, definitely.

    • Rachel

      My mother’s homemade mashed potatoes and gravy.

    • Amanda

      My Mother’s dressing..it is my grandmother’s recipe tweaked by my Mom and it is home in a pan..I never knew my grandmother but I love that I can share her cooking..makes it feel like she is there with us every holiday.

    • TammynSC

      My grandma’s dressing! She’s gone now :( but my Aunt makes it the same way and I have her recipe.

    • Loranna

      My Thanksgiving is not complete without pie–particularly pumpkin and apple. The apple is the recipe my grandfather used to make, and pumpkin is my husband’s favorite. Even though we’re stuffed after dinner, we can’t be really finished until we’ve eaten pie, though we might take a game break before breaking out the pies!

    • Kathy

      My husband’s Grandma’s dressing… yum!

    • Corrie

      Homemade rolls…my mom made them for as long as I can remember and I was right beside her as soon as I was big enough to sit on the counter. I got married in January…and guess who’s bringing the rolls to this year’s gathering?! :)

    • Carla

      It would not be Thanksgiving without Apple Cinnamon Salad…this is a long-time family favorite that I cannot remember ever not having. Many thanks to Grandma for starting this tradition….

    • Stephanie

      My moms carrots – they are so yummy! My hubby does not like carrots so the only time I get them is if my moms cooks them and has us down for supper but I can always count on them for Thanksgiving.

    • Tracy

      It would certainly have to be my mom’s dressing..it has to be in a 13X9 pan and a little dry….. Or wait…maybe its my moms chocolate pound cake from scratch with homemade chocolate icing…its most important that you cook it in an angel food cake pan so that the icing runs over the sides…or oh my goodness…can’t forget about the coca cola ham…and don’t forget to give a piece to the dog…..but the one dish I could not live without is the incredible unconditional love that my mom gives me everyday

    • Jennifer

      My absolute favorite is broccoli casserole! Yummy and cheesy goodness :)

    • Beth

      Macaroni and cheese!

    • I couldn’t go without Mom’s Mashed potatoes

    • It would not be Thanksgiving without my brother in law’s homemade fresh cranberry/orange sauce or my aunt’s homemade yeast rolls made, of course, with pure lard and lots of love.

    • April

      My grandmother’s Angel Biscuts. Since she is an angel now, I get to make them.

    • Becky

      Gotta have the dressing!

    • Buttermilk pie!!!

    • Sasha

      Stuffing is a must!

    • Stephanie

      It would not be Thanksgiving without sweet potato casserole!!

    • Natasha

      My hubby’s aunt’s baked Mac & Cheese and his grandma’s Cornish hens!!! Oh and my strawberry cheesecake! :D

    • pumpkin pie (made from real baked and pureed pumpkin!)–Thanks Jenny

    • Lisa J

      just one. . lol
      for my family mashed potatoes . . the potatoes boiled in Chicken broth
      but also love asparagus casserole (just like green bean but with asparagus). . yummy in our tummies

    • Melissa

      It would not be Thanksgiving with out dressing and giblet gravy.

    • teresa

      it would not be thanksgiving w/o my husbands dressing. he got the recipe in a southern living magazine about 20 years ago and we make it every year. we begin by making homemade cornbread the night before and the dressing the morning of. and of course my dad’s pecan pie. he passed away 2 years ago, and now i get to make the same recipe. my family loves it, and i have to make my grown son one of his own to take home. i am new to couponing. and i love it.

    • shannon

      Everyone in my family requests pumpkin rolls. They are sooo good. It’s typically a pumpkin sponge type cake rolled up with cream cheese filling. It’s right off the nestle website made with Libby’s pumpkin. As for the progresso bread crumbs, I love the italian style crumbs. I just sautee chicken with the crumbs in olive oil and finish it in the oven with fresh lemon slices on top. It is very good and extremely easy.

    • Catherine

      For me, Thanksgiving would not be without my grandmother’s turkey salad. And it’s not what we have during dinner, but that she makes it extra special for me to have for leftovers on Thanksgiving night.

    • carrie martiin

      butter beans

    • Robin

      My mama makes the best stuffing and gravy with boiled eggs in it. Which of course has to be made from the turkey drippings!! My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

    • Vicki

      It wouldn’t feel like Thanksgiving without my grandmothers Chess pie! It’s wonderful!!

    • Tanya

      Decorating Betty Crocker Sugar Cookies I got on sale, with a store coupon as well as a manufacturer coupon!

    • Kim Lawson

      There are sooo many things I could say, but the one thing that really stands out is the SWEET POTATO PUDDIN’ that my grandfather used to make. It was one of those recipes that he would put a little of this and a pinch of that, never with any measurements. A few years back, I finally, with his help, came up with the correct measurements so I could make it myself. With the grated sweet potatoes, coconut,raisins, and several more ingredients(lots of sugar and butter) this has to be one of the best recipes EVER!!(The traditional sweet potato casserole with marshmallows is good, but is no comparison to this!)

      My grandfather died a couple of years ago and today would have been his 87th birthday. That makes this recipe even more special. If I win, I will share the recipe with you and you can see for yourself what I’m talking about! Is your mouth watering yet??!

    • Denise

      I love my sweet potato casseole…yummm!!

    • Heather

      It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without the dressing…that is my favorite! I’m always the taste tester!

    • sha


    • Kori

      I grew in the heart of Amish country, PA. So for me- shoo-fly pie is a must have.

    • Becky

      Definitely sweet potatoe casserole, I don’t think I’ve ever had a Thanksgiving meal without it.

    • Elaine

      Would have to be my mom’s stuffing! One year I only made my husband’s cornbread stuffing and I felt like Thanksgiving never happened! I actually make 2 types of stuffing every year now!

    • Anna Guzman

      I’m of Mexican decent so, without tamales or posole it would not be Thanksgiving to me.

    • letitia

      For me it would not be Thanksgiving here in south GA with out my “Grandma Butterbean’s” chocolate meringue pie. She raised me so I’ve grown up with it as one of those items that is just a ‘given’, always there!

    • Dawn Stribling

      It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving for our family without my Dad’s homemade cheesecake. He took several years perfecting the recipe and it is wonderful!!!!!

    • My mother’s sweet potatoes with brown sugar and pecans…mmm…mmm…good!

    • Angela

      sweet potato casserole!

    • Stephanie

      Stuffing! Actually I eat it all year round. It feels like thanksgiving no matter when I eat it.

    • Ed Stewart

      Homemade Parkerhouse Rolls, tops the item I look forward to most.

      Sweet potato casserole with pecan topping

    • candee

      Home made turkey gravy to cover everything in!!!!

    • Peggy H

      Have to have pumpkin pie or it doesn’t seem like Thanksgiving. Love the recipe using sweetened condensed milk which has been my son’s favorite since they made them in his 3-K pre-school class…he’s now 24!

    • Brandi

      my sister’s green bean casserole

    • Jen

      Sweet Potatoes with carmelized apples….mmmmmm, even my picky one loves them!

      ; )

    • Jennifer Wilson

      Gotta be my cornbread dressing. Every year I have to buy at least 4 cartons of progresso broth because I never know exactly how much it will take. I just keep adding the broth until patting the dressing feels like spanking a baby’s butt. Try it yourself and see if that isn’t exactly what the perfect consistency (before baking) feels like. My family all gathers around to get a slap at it. Happy Thanksgiving!

    • Rachel

      Baked yams and apples!

    • Laura

      PUMPKIN PIE! Just like mom makes . . .

    • Sarah

      homemade petite rolls – lots of work but yummo!!!

      • Denise-GC

        I was wondering the same
