Everyone has a favorite Thanksgiving dish. Maybe yours is the big, juicy turkey. Maybe it’s the stuffing, an American comfort food. Maybe the mac and cheese calls your name, or maybe it’s those darned green beans you always regret eating so many of…. Or maybe, just maybe, it’s the velvet-ey, heaven-in-your-mouth pumpkin pie. Mmmm…
Your favorite Thanksgiving dish may depend on where you are. Take a look at this map that Thrillist put together of the most popular Thanksgiving side in each state. Does your favorite side correspond to the state you’re in?
Once you’ve looked at the map, vote in our poll below. If you answer “other,” tell us in the comments what your favorite dish is.
Triple layer Pumpkin Pie for other.
Hmmm! I had to pick “other” – as there was no “all of the above” choice! (Well not the mac & cheese! – altho that’s good too – but not with a Thanksgiving feast). And those luscious left overs for at least a week! Man – how lucky are we in this wonderful country?
My “other” is deviled eggs. Belated happy Thanksgiving!
Rutabaga and cranberry are my favorites for Thanksgiving
Sweet potatoes with brown sugar and marshmallows toasted and a sprinkle of pecans. Then the country Apple pie with the crumble on top and a good shot on the rocks with Canadians best whiskey. Just pure magic.
Was spending the day alone so chose a very different Thanksgiving meal. Pork Loin cutlets (like cube steaks) cooked in the slow cooker from my own recipe that makes it’s own best ever gravy because you always need gravy. Along with mashed potatoes today, or sweeet potatoes, and cranberries in some form. Of course, deviled eggs welcome any time.
I love the turkey, especially the wings and thigh. My wife makes a fabulous oyster stuffing to stuff the turkey. It’s to die for and it’s even better as leftovers when it’s been sitting (refrigerated of course) for a day. Yum!
I’ll pass on the mac and sprouts but love everything else.
Extra cranberry sauce please
In my humble opinion, all these delicacies are so-so without my wife’s Xlnt Gravy.
How do I get the polls to load?
Sorry you’re having trouble with the polls, Moresch. Sometimes they just take a long time to load. And sometimes people have their spam blockers, etc., set very tight. One of our IT folks, Jessica, explained it this way: “Sometimes script blockers and ad blockers interfere with our polls since they are from a 3rd party site. If you have one of these try and turn it off and see if that fixes the issue.” I hope that helps. Happy Thanksgiving, and stay healthy. 🙂 —Diane at RVtravel.com
On this decidedly non-traditional Thanksgiving, we decided we would just treat ourselves to our individual favorite dishes. I’ll have fresh salmon with a side of candied yams while the wife will have shrimp with brussels sprouts as her side. We’ll Face Time with the great-grandsons later and there’s wine for whenever!
I forgot the dessert. There’s a home-made apple pie sitting just to the left of this lap-top.
Hey I’m half Italian (mother) it’s not Thanksgiving without mostaccioli.
I like them all. I’m surprised no one has mentioned dumplings. My mother used to make the best homemade ones. Sure do miss those! Happy Thanksgiving, y’all
You can’t beat stuffed mirlitons (chayote squash) with New Orleans style oyster stuffing!
Cranberry orange sauce/jelly. Scalloped onions and scalloped potatoes. Oh, don’t forget the turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, stuffing, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes casserole with marshmallow top, fresh baked rolls, and of course, apple caramel pie, Dutch apple pie, pumpkin pie…
Have a SAFE and Happy Thanksgiving. Keep those not with us anymore in your hearts!
Also, keep those serving our country in foreign lands and in the States in our thoughts and prayers!
Thank you for the delicious menu, Mike. And a huge thank you for the very important message. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. Stay healthy. 🙂 —Diane at RVtravel.com
For those of us from South Central Pennsylvania it is not dressing, it is not stuffing, it’s filling!
I really appreciate people who stick up for their culture. From us Southeners, it is dressing, aka, cornbread dressing. Unfortunately, there are those who dont respect Southern culture when residing in the South!! Happy T’Giving to you good folks in PA. “I met a man in Tennessee and he was headed for..Pennsylvania and some home-made pumpkin pie”.
There isn’t one favorite dish at Thanksgiving. The Thanksgiving gathering is enjoying a complete Thanksgiving meal with all the dishes and flavors together. But the best part of Thanksgiving is being with family and friends, which, sadly is not possible this year. To all RV Travel staff and readers – have a Happy Thanksgiving!
I would give you a thumbs up on your post if I could, but since I can’t, I’ll second it! My thoughts exactly! 🙂
Great message, Linda. And we hope you have a Happy (and safe) Thanksgiving, also. 🙂 —Diane at RVtravel.com
My wife has been creating Thanksgiving dinner for the family for over 50 years, and her homemade cranberry relish tops off every dinner we have together. Sorry, only the two of us this year, gets kind of lonely! darn virus.
My favorite Thanksgiving meal was spent with friends of Mexican and Cuban descent, it wasn’t a traditional American Thanksgiving feast but was the best eating I have ever done for the holiday and even today we are hosting an untraditional but simple tasty meal for some of our family and friends. We won’t be cooking for half a day and then spending most of the afternoon cleaning up.
Thank goodness today is Thanksgiving Feast Day – you all are making me hungry! I chose “other”. Like some of you, I like all of them equally. But, my favorite is the gravy. Gravy makes everything better! And cranberries, although I prefer the canned. Happy Thanksgiving everyone and stay safe!
