Top 11 Holiday foods
By Rose Gottschalk (TheLorian)
The holidays are fast approaching, and that means some of the best food will be cooked. Mostly categorized as comfort foods, these foods bring all kinds of nostalgia to people as it takes them back to their childhoods. Here is my personal ranking of the best food to eat over the holidays. Hopefully, you will be able to get your hands on some this season.
- Green bean casserole
This will always be a favorite. I hated it as a kid and would refuse to eat it, but now it’s my favorite thing to eat. I learned how to make it myself, but I still leave it for this special time of the year.
My mom can’t cook, but man, can she do a mean stuffing. The way the turkey flavors get incorporated into the bread and the celery just add an extra something that makes this the best.
3. Turkey skin
Weird, but when cooked to a crisp and seasoned properly, this has the best flavor. Sometimes, even better than the rest of the turkey.
4. Mashed potatoes and gravy
Mashed potatoes always gets paired with gravy. It can be little bland, but mixed with some butter, sour cream, salt and pepper, it creates such a satisfying taste.
Paired with all of above, this is fantastic. It can scoop other food onto the fork and then it’s a little taste of everything. Also, bread with melted butter is good just on its own.
6. Cranberry sauce
Why not spice things up with a little cranberry sauce on top? It gives it a little different taste when it’s needed.
7. Apple pie
The best pie. No doubt about it, and no competition. Add a scoop of ice cream and it’s the best dessert. A la mode? Yes, please.
This is ranked here because it’s an acquired taste, but there’s definitely ways to make it better, some of which can’t be said. When it’s spiced up, it can make the night go way better.
9. Sweet potato casserole
This could be good. If made correctly. It does add some nice color to the plate though.
10. Pumpkin pie
For some reason I’m really not a fan of this. Never have been, even when I’ve re-tried it.
This really shouldn’t need an explanation. Never had a good one, but will always think about how grandma got run over by a reindeer.
