Weird "Thanksgiving" foods

Every family has those little weird foods that only appear at Thanksgiving. Mine was no exception. My grandmother always served those little, hockey-puck shaped "yam patties." Yes, they were patty-shaped, but tasted nothing like "yam." (to clarify, "yam" in the South generally refers to a sweet potato). I haven't seen these since I moved away, but then again, I haven't really looked for them. They were a little weird, and kin of gross. So anyway, what was your family's little culinary quirk?
