For us, it's fairly standard fare and nothing like the enormous spread that I grew up with, but then again, growing up, we'd have family from all over the states come together for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Usually, 30 people minimum at our house.
For my family, it will be turkey and gravy, dressing, rolls, sweet potato casserole, pecan pie and chocolate pie.
This recipe I use for the dressing is the closest thing to what I grew up with. Southern Cornbread Dressing - Dinner at the Zoo
I don't put the sage in; we never used sage. I also find that the chicken or vegetable broth you choose to use is a huge factor in how it's going to taste.
And this is the recipe for the sweet potato casserole which I never ever ate growing up, but my husband did, so I had to learn how to cook it as well. Sweet Potato Casserole with Candied Pecans + Marshmallows - A Sassy Spoon
I don't put the pecans on it because I feel that's a waste of pecans, and good pecans aren't cheap. I've also come to enjoy it greatly when mixed with the stuffing. 😁
...and a fruit cake from Collin Street Bakery.
The elders in my family LOVED that damn fruitcake. I never did develop a taste for it.
