    Favorite holiday food

    What's everyone's favorite thing in their Thanksgiving/Christmas meals?

    I personally love sweet potatoes. Though, my aunt made a chocolate chip pecan pie that was amazing. It has been the best dessert I've had this holiday season thus far.

    Stuffing, the goofy thing is I could make it whenever I want and I always forget how much I like it.

    It's all good, as evidenced by my gut.

    Pumpkin pie with whipped cream
    Is it solipsistic in here, or is it just me?

    Re: Favorite holiday food

    So far, I'm in agreement with all of these replies. I'll add to it our family recipe goetta, which I only have when we stay at my parents' house during the holidays and homemade spritz cookies, in the shape of a Christmas tree. I'm also looking forward to sauerkraut stuffed duck that my mother in law makes for Christmas afternoon.

    Speaking of holiday meals, my wife now buys a smallish Eberle Farms turkey for Thanksgiving, which she brines for a day before roasting. My goodness, what a bird.

    I don't really get to eat the foods I really like for the holidays because of all the picky eaters in my family. My favorite when my grandparents were still around was my grandmother's oyster stuffing. And I used to love turkey when it was a once a year meal. But now turkey is commonplace and since my wife doesn't eat red meat, we have turkey all the time, every holiday. So I actually like it when we go somewhere else and they have a rib roast or a leg of lamb or a country ham.

    Re: Favorite holiday food

    Christmas food is so much better than Thanksgiving food.

    Ham > turkey
    Cheesy scalloped potatoes > mashed potatoes
    Green beans > corn
    Christmas cookies > pumpkin pie

    At least that's what we have at my family dinner.

    The best way to win a food thread is to post pictures. It's like boobs. By the way, the correct answer to the OP is cheesy scalloped potatoes:

    Meh, if it was Indian Food or something spicy I'd get excited. No meat or juice for me, thus I like cranberries, but this version is the best

    Hard to choose between Pumpkin Pie and dressing for Thanksgiving but Christmas is easy: Egg Nog

    Does anyone really like fruit cake?

    My dad liked fruit cake. He's passed away now but I don't think that had anything to do with his death.

    I love egg nog. But only the kind my mom would make. It was very sweet,no alcohol. My wife got the recipe from her and makes it just as well.
