What's your favorite Thanksgiving food?
I really want to know. As most of you probably know, mine is pie. But I recognize that others may feel differently.
In a nod to my friends at Eater, I am establishing a morning line on which food will be voted ELE readers' favorite:
Mashed Potatoes: 3-1
Turkey and Gravy: 5-1
Cranberry Sauce: 8-1
Sweet Potatoes: 10-1
Green Vegetables: 500-1
So vote for one of the following:
Turkey and Gravy:
Stuffing: Stuffing runs a close second to pie for me. What's not to like about stuffing? What other food can so easily contain bread, butter, and sausage in every bite?
Cranberry Sauce or Cranberry Conserve to fancy-pants Foodies
Sweet Potatoes: I make mine with maple syrup and loads of butter and heavy cream.
Mashed Potatoes: I make the Al Forno mashed potatoes courtesy of George Germon and Johanne Killeen in Providence, RI.
Green vegetables: Am I influencing the vote by not having a picture of a green vegetable? You decide. I know it's hard to believe, but some people look forward to the green vegetables served at Thanksgiving as an antidote to all the other fat-laden deliciousness served. Personally I think the only way to rescue green vegetables is with bacon, sausage or other pork products.
Pie: Really, is there anything better on this earth than a great piece of pie?
