About This Article

If there's one thing you can count on at a big family Thanksgiving dinner, it's that there's going to be a little something for everyone there. Plate after plate of your holiday favorites tend to encourage all of us to forget anything close to a diet. We overindulge in every fatty, buttery, rich and creamy, ooey-gooey dish that we should be holding back on but aren't. From grandma's homemade mac and cheese to flaky biscuits to a perfectly roasted turkey with stuffing and cranberry sauce, it's a safe bet that your favorite must be in there somewhere. But what about your least favorite?

For every holiday "must-have," there's a "don't want" on the list. No one loves everything equally, right? Do you crave canned yams like you crave mashed potatoes? Is green bean casserole more or less important than the stuffing? Where would you rank them if you were making a list of the absolute most perfect Thanksgiving dinner you could possibly have? If you're not sure, then feel free to check out our list. Maybe we nailed it for you. Or maybe we completely blew one. One way to find out, though! Pull up to our table, and check out our Thanksgiving dinner rankings.
