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.

  1. 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.

2. Stuffing

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.

5. Rolls

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.

8. Eggnog

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.

11. Fruitcake

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.
