I will be the first to admit, turkey is not the best main dish out there. I would not complain if the traditional Thanksgiving dish was filet mignon and lobster. However, you add in mashed potatoes, stuffing, 7-layer salad, sweet potatoes, cole slaw, jello salad, green bean casserole (or hotdish if you prefer), corn, dinner rolls, and the highly-underrated cranberry sauce – you have a formidable feast. Literally everything in this meal mixes well together, so no worries when loading up your plate, two or three layers will just create some interesting combinations. Best of all, there’s almost always enough for seconds, thirds, and fourths, so you can get something new each time around! And heck, if you really dislike turkey that much, make filet mignon and lobster!
