Turkey, turkey and more turkey. It's not that I don't like turkey. I just like everything else more.

I agree totally with the green bean casserole and the oysters, too.

As to lamb??? Never heard of anyone serving lamb on Thanksgiving. Not a tradition with anyone or anywhere i've head of.

Oh, that *awful*, salty, gooey green bean casserole with the fried onions on top! Yuk.

Same yuk for the too-sweet sweet potato casserole -- even worse with marshmallows.

Plain bread stuffing.

Jello anything.

I can't think of anything, but I don't make green bean casserole. I have to admit I like the taste, though :-)

gravy made with giblets...because my kids complain every year I make it. I grew up on it and that's what I like but I have to conform to please the kids.

I posted a recipe for made-from-scratch green bean casserole on the weekly recipe post. No salty soup! I haven't made it but, after reading the recipe again, I'm making it for T-giving.

Sorry Patti, I don't want anything in my green beans but either ham or bacon, onion and salt and pepper, maybe a touch of sugar, not much of that. :) You can toss in some potatoes if you like. :)

Only sausage stuffing for me.

No, I don't want oyster *anything* or sprouts. (I haven't given either one a thought in years until reading this thread.)

I love leg of lamb (and lamb chops), but that would be an Easter entree here.

I haven't though about peacan pie in ages; DH doesn't like it. Maybe just some candied pecan halves?

Fish, even though I really like it
Ham or pork, because we don't eat pork products
Chocolate deserts, because I can't eat it any more.

When I consider the traditional Thanksgiving dinner there isn't a single thing I don't like...That is not the same as not eating something that day,,,there is only so much one person can eat even on Thanksgiving! I love it all!

Can't stand:

Sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie, or turnips.

(Also lamb, but I don't know anyone who cooks that. I haven't had any since I was a kid...my mother used to try and trick me into thinking it was steak.)

I love everything my mom makes for T-giving, but of course I grew up with it so that's what I like. However, I won't eat giblet gravy. I used to not eat brussels spouts. Now I make myself eat one every year. I do like the roasted ones I get at my local market. We don't have sweet potatoes with marshmallows, but I would not eat them if we did. My mom's sweets are still kind of gross since they are swimming in butter and brown sugar, but I love them. I love when then sweet potato juice runs into everything else.

So:

giblet gravy
brussels sprouts depending on how they are prepared
marshmallows

I love everything that shows up on my family's Thanksgiving table including most of the things mentioned here. I in general do not eat liver but it would not be on our table. I am not a fan of aspic but that would not be on the table either.
I don't like greens but I don't recall ever having them on Thanksgiving.

I will eat green bean casserole, there are some good ones, and my sister makes a great one.
The praline topped sweet potato casserole is one of my favorites.
Oyster dressing love it.

I really can't think of anything other than greens and liver.
I love good giblet gravy, but the giblets are removed before serving.

We have never had duck or goose for Thanksgiving but I don't care for them. I don't mind it in gumbo. My family are big hunters so both of these along with venison could show up. I am fine with venison.

Don't want to eat figs, or giblets if I don't have to.

The hot baked corn my nephew's wife brings every year. When I say "hot", I mean she puts jalape�o peppers and other things the recipe calls for that makes it too spicy for me.

Eve tho it is too eaarly in the morning here, you are making me hungry. I love all things Thanksgiving. I like to think of myself as an "almost" vegetarian (or past veggie person), but that turkey leg can just get my mouth watering. Has to be done on the Weber BBQ and is quite possibly the ONLY meat I like.

Don't like "sweetened" sweet potatoes.

Don't like "creamed" anything...ie green beans

Whipped Cream, Sour Cream anything.

Neither my husband or I use gravy and I don't do mincemeat pie. Since I've found a green bean casserole dish without the soup..I've made that and everyone eats it.

For all the fuss of turkey, I have a slice cause it tastes good with the stuffing and cranberry sauce. It serves a purpose.

1) Sweet potatoes
2) Oysters
3) Entrails

Fortunately, around here, none of them are popular.

I love reading everyone's opinions! The thought of squash or sweet potatoes makes me clench my teeth together...anyone out there with a recipe for those vegis with a much less sweet taste, I'd give it a try. I have tweaked the green bean casserole over the years to where it's nowhere near the back-of-the-can recipe, but I understand anyone's aversion to it, and wouldn't be insulted if you didn't take any at T. dinner. Just found out today that I'm doing dinner for the family, and I'm jazzed. In-laws used to cook the turkey two days before Thanksgiving, slice it up and cook it again on Thursday. Yipes! Oh the stories I could tell.

1. Anything that once walked around on land
2. Anything stuffed inside something that once walked around on land.
3. Anything with sweet potatoes/yams. Especially canned with marshmallows on it.

We'll be eating with my boyfriend's family. I have to work that day so it makes it hard for me to contribute something actually vegetarian (I'll try and make something the night before). These kind of meals are difficult for vegetarians when meat eaters sometimes don't quite get that something might not be vegetarian just because it doesn't have big hunks of meat in it, ie....chicken stock, bacon bits, etc. Some people put some sort of animal product in everything they make, even the vegetables. Which is fine, just makes things trickier for me. All my sisters are vegetarians (or pesca-tarians), so our holidays meals are filled with tons of delicious vegetarian dishes, but being the only one is a whole different ball game.

Can't stand giblet gravy, so will never serve it.

The back of the soup can green bean casserole, this family has never, never liked it. However, we do have two more green bean casseroles that we love (no cream of soup in either one).

Also, green salad. It just seems out of place on the Thanksgiving table at our house, even though we all love salad.
