Turkey, Stuffing, Sweet Potatoes, Green Bean Casserole (because I HATE mushrooms), Cranberry Sauce. Basically if you would typically eatit at Thanksgiving, I detest it The worst is when I see a salad and think "finally something I can eat!" only to see some family member completely drench the entire bowl in dressing and/or some add some kind of fruit. Sweet and savory things need to remain SEPARATE!

Can't stand stuffing! I agree with previous posters who said it well - "slimy, salty mush"! Ick!

Stuffing, especially from inside the bird when it's all slimy. If there is leftover stuffing that wasn't cooked in the bird, I can stomach that a little better. Also, green bean casserole. I love sweet potatoes, but I like them simple with a little cinnamon and some butter, definitely not with marshmellows and molasses.

I don't like a lot of the traditional dishes , especially the creamy or super sweet ones, now that we are trying to eat in a more healthy way. For several years we have made a new tradition of trying great sounding new recipes from the Thanksgiving issues of Food and Wine, Real Simple, and now Yum Sugar of course!

Sweet potato and pumpkin pies. Just not appealing to me in the slightest. I'll take a double helping of stuffing to make up for it though ;)

Stuffing. How it earned a spot in the traditional Thanksgiving feast is one of life's greatest mysteries.

I can't stand candied yams. Its just so sickeningly sweet. Sweet potatoes don't need marshmallows. I am indifferent to cranberry sauce, I haven't tried homemade though.

I don't HATE anything really but I could live without the turkey and stuffing... I like the sides so much better than the main dish turkey. I always have a bit of stuffing but I'm not a big fan of it. I'm also not much of a sweet potato fan, although I usually will have a bit of whatever sweet potato dish there is.

I have to be honest -- plain ol' turkey. I don't hate it, but I don't love it, either. It's my least favorite part of the meal. My favorite? The stuffing and mashed potatoes with gravy!

gravy or any other warm sauce (bechamel etc) bleurhg and anything potato (except whole baked sweet potato) or mashed. i'm still on the fence about mince pies and christmas pudding - since i can't eat custard, they always taste way too intense.

I think canned cranberry sauce is pretty weird. Love homemade though. I can only ever eat a little bit of yams or sweet potatoes before I get sick of them. But there's nothing I really completely dislike.

^^ you are all insane! sweet/savoury is the best. Love sweet potato- just make sure you spice it up, or roast them to perfection yum yum. Creamed onions are the devil. And if you put marshmallow in your sweet potatoes, you have successfully destroyed one of the greatest vegetables ever. Oh and ham has NO business in green beans, if you so choose to serve them.

Green bean casserole...ick. Sweet potato anything.

Definitely cranberry sauce. I don't like eating sweet and savory stuff together, totally gross. I'm also not a huge fan of sweet potatoes, for the same reason.
