Top Ten Tuesday: Thanksgiving Foods And Desserts

These are strictly things you would eat during Thanksgiving dinner (before dessert). Now, some of you may not be able to wait for dessert, so you eat pie with your dinner. But if you do that you’re probably incapable of reading this list anyway. For the rest of you, feel free to sound off in the comments below about which Thanksgiving food is your favorite. And have a great Thanksgiving.


10. Cranberry Sauce

The sauce makes the list. Just don’t get lost in it.


9. Sweet Potatoes

First of the potatoes on the list: sweet potatoes.


8. Bread/Rolls

Who doesn’t like a good roll with butter?


7. Mashed Potatoes

The second-of-two potatoes comes in at #7. Like cranberry sauce, it can be instant (from a can for cranberry sauce) or you can actually make them.


6. Corn (and family)

Cornbread, corn, corn on the cob, etc.


5. Gravy

Thanksgiving might be gravy’s biggest day of the year. You can put your gravy on almost anything on Thanksgiving. Just don’t drink it straight.


4. Ham

It’s the holiday season. People love some ham.


3. Mac and Cheese

Of course mac and cheese is up on the list. Maybe the food least associated with Thanksgiving on the list, but mac and cheese was invented in the U.S. so…


2. Stuffing

According to South Park, stuffing is the cornerstone of Thanksgiving. Thankfully, there was no raid on the stuffing mines this year.


1. Turkey

There isn’t much debate about this one. The main course has always been—and always will be—turkey.


. . .


It’s not over yet. Let’s get into the last meal of Thanksgiving: dessert. If you’re still functioning, you’ll be eating some dessert on Thanksgiving…as if you didn’t eat enough during dinner.


10. Pumpkin dip

An uninspiring option, but it’s pumpkin.


9. Pumpkin bread

Nothing wrong with some good, solid pumpkin bread.


8. More turkey

Why not?


7. Fruit

I know what you’re thinking. But there’s nothing wrong with fruit. In fact, more people should eat fruit.


6. Cookies

Any cookies available during a Thanksgiving feast are a good option.


5. Coffee

Keeps you awake after eating all that turkey.


4. Apple stuff

Apple pie, apple cake, caramel apples, etc. There are more apple desserts than you can count.


3. Cheesecake

A close friend to the pie, cheesecake is an awesome dessert option. It can many different flavors and sizes as well.


2. Pie

Blueberry, pecan, apple, peach, coconut, strawberry, chocolate, peanut butter, chocolate peanut butter, chocolate peanut butter fudge with nuts…you get the point.


1. Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin pie gets its own category. It’s an absolute Thanksgiving classic that stands the test of time.
