Everyone has one. The one they take seconds and thirds and fourths of. Or the one they always have to have or make or it’s not Thanksgiving. What’s your go-to, must-have Thanksgiving side dish.
Thanksgiving is hands down my favorite holiday meal all year. I love everything about it. I love my own family’s traditions, I love that everyone has very specific Thanksgiving-only traditions, and I love creating new ones with my husband and his family and our collective family as we grow. I love remembering which dish is or was everyone’s favorite, and I love that while so much of the traditional meal is consistent from table to table, how much those consistent ingredients and elements and dishes can vary, too.
My go-to has changed. It used to be my Grandma’s stuffing. Now that I wrote that, it totally still is. I could live off only my Grandma’s stuffing and never get tired of it. But I’m now the fresh cranberry sauce lady.
Here’s a version I’ve made the past few years and will make again next week.
What about you?
