    Depends on the holiday, but you can never go wrong with a delicious glazed ham, scalloped potatoes, and broccoli with cheese meal. However, there MUST be a mouth watering dessert at the end, preferably involving cream cheese in some form.

    Favorite holiday meal usually comprises of my mom’s awesome stuffing, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes and gravy, rolls & a ham or turkey. Then of course followed by an amazing strawberry rhubarb pie or some other kind of pie for dessert. All made from scratch. Man…I can’t wait to go home for X-mas now!

    Screw the turkey, ham, etc…..just make sure there are twenty pounds of buttery, chunky homemade mashed potatoes and I’m set.

    Oh – and deviled eggs. YUM!

    This may sound boring, but I love the food at Thanksgiving. Mainly because you only have it once a year. And if Marlboro Man sees that picture of her cookbook on your junk……….oh boy. You know that he owns firearms, right? And branding irons? And things that castrate cattle???

    Let’s see – favorite holiday meal would be pretty much anything untraditional. My dad’s extended family likes to mix it up a bit. One year we had enchiladas, another year lasagna. (Which, coincidentally and sadly was made with the caribou meat my uncle got while on a hunting trip to Alaska. Caribou = reindeer. FOR XMAS DINNER. Poor Rudolph.) It keeps you from having to eat three different turkey dinners while making the rounds through your various family meals.

    Christmas breakfast at our place is omelets, monkey break and HUGE AMOUNTS OF BACON! Wash it down with coffee with some kind of alcohol in it.

    Thanksgiving dinner, now that I’m completely scarred for life. Ree’s presentation at BlogHer was adorable!

    Does gravy count as a meal? Fresh made turkey gravy on everything is the best!

    Thanksgiving is my favorite: Turkey, helmet mashed potatoes (my uncle’s specialty), green bean casserole, rolls, gravy, more gravy, a bit more gravy, cottage cheese, and a tumbler of milk.

    I love stuffing… or I should say dressing. Whichever one has not been up a turkey’s butt.

    Garlic mashed potatoes, my grandpa’s natural maple syrup-glazed ham, and apple pie

    Red cabbage, mashed potatoes and bratwurst. Or chicken fricassée with rice. Yes, German meals. You know why I’m participating?

    I am traumatized by the picture :)

    We’re vegetarians, so my my favorite holiday meal is sage stuffing with seitan on the side. So good.

    I’m still a fan of the traditional Thanksgiving meal, but these days I throw in a lot of extra vegetarian and gluten-free dishes to accommodate my guests.

    spiked cider. Yes it’s a meal.

    My favorite Christmas meal is prime rib (with horseradish, natch), twice baked potatoes, oven roasted sweet cherry tomatoes, a good yeasty roll and a fat ass slice of cheesecake for dessert. SO. GOOD.

    Green bean casserole – but not the one with onion strings. My mom’s recipe with garlic cheese. Yum!

    I’m Cuban so favorite holiday meal must be roast pig- the whole pig. I look forward to it every Christmas Eve.

    Holiday meal? We probably eat better during the normal week than any holiday…but if I have to choose, it’s Thanksgiving because pretty much anything goes. :)

    I love food, does that count? Okay well I guess more specifically I like a great big holiday feast no matter what it is. One of the few times of year that calories don’t count. :) Thanksgiving and the roasted turkey feast is probably my favorite.

    Either Easter duck or deep fried turkey. YUM!

    My favorite holiday meal is easily Thanksgiving. Brined turkey with gravy, stuffing with andouille sausage, garlic-wasabi mashed potatoes, creamed spinach and lots of bourbon.

    Actually, you can skip the first four parts of that meal.

    One year we had Gino’s East deep dish pizza for Thanksgiving. In our pajamas. My favorite Thanksgiving so far.
