My Favorite Thanksgiving treat has nothing to do with dinner. My mom makes fantastic homemade cinnamon rolls. She makes them for Christmas and Easter too. I like them better than anything else we eat the entire day. I usually fly to STL early on Thanksgiving morning and by the time I get to my mom and dad's the rolls are just coming out of the oven.
My second favorite is mom's stuffing. I usually eat a couple of helpings of that all by itself.

That sound great. The stuff my mom makes has Parmesan cheese in it.

Favorite: The champers, of course!
Oddity: Hot potato salad. We always added vinegar, white onion, chopped egg, and parsley to the mashed potatoes at the holidays. No idea why, but it just isn't Thanksgiving or Christmas without it. It's not everyone's cup of tea, so I always make regular mashers for guests to choose from.
That is a top favorite of mine too. My mom always makes great crust and that is such an important part of any pie. When I was a kid she would make me an extra crust and I would eat it like a cookie. I didn't eat all at once, but a few days I was able to enjoy the crust.

same here! my mom makes incredible crusts. No store-bought crust crap.
my favorite is the pumkin pie, too... with whipped cream on top. Home whipped, too. Buy the heavy cream, and whip it, adding just a touch of sugar. mmm. Delicious.

YUMM. Sounds good Chef Westy.
Don't listen to JGPH1A, his fatwahs don't hurt too badly. Plus all this talk of chicken stuffing makes them less dangerous, yet be careful as they are filled with dangerous gaseous substances reeking of cheap French wine
Yesterday we've sinned, today we move towards God. Touch the sky....love and respect...Safe Star!

My aunt makes these AMAZING pies for Thanksgiving. Also my grandma makes a good cranberry sauce from scratch.
Saddly enough, my family no longer serves turkey at Thanksgiving dinner. We always serve some form of beef (sorry, no steaks). They found prepping turkey to be too time consuming and I've heard rumors a whole turkey landed on my aunt's cat, killing the poor thing.
Now I will need to find a Deli nearby to grab some turkey to make a nice turkey club sandwich.
