Or I butter a roll, put a piece of turkey and the cranberry sauce, some mashed potatoes and then the gravy!!! Oh man I'm already looking forward to next Thanksgiving! AlexisSF 5 years gravy. AlexisSF 5 years gravy. Food 5 years I think it comes down to whether you're more of a sweet or a savory person. I am a savory person, so gravy will always be my choice before cranberry sauce. Akasha 5 years I'm a cranberry girl all the way. I think my grandmother's gravy grossed me out so badly that I don't like gravy on anything anymore. Last year there were so many people at my annual Can't Go Home for the Holidays Thanksgiving Dinner that we ran out of cranberries (bad planning on my part),and we ended up using the lingonberries that I had in the fridge from IKEA and it was a great substitute. I've actually added them to the shopping list for this year. partysugar 5 years Gravy is my all time favorite thing at Thanksgiving. Soniabonya 5 years Cranberry Sauce! Soniabonya 5 years Cranberry Sauce! Pampire 5 years Gravy! Pampire 5 years Gravy! doogirl 5 years I married my husband for his Mother's gravy, so it's gravy all the way! I find cranberry sauce a little too bitter to eat with my Thanksgiving meal, but I do put it on my Thanksgiving sandwich! dootsie 5 years Here's the deal... as far as eating it "with" the turkey--as in, ON the turkey--it's gravy all the way. But as far as completing the turkey-eating experience? Both are totally necessary. :) Mme-Hart 5 years Loooooooooooooove cranberry sauce! 5 years Turkey dish can be accompanied with either Cranberry Sauce or Gravy and is really a lip smacking dish. chiefdishwasher 5 years Love them both but cranberrrrrry onyly goes on turkey and gravy goes on top of todos !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Babycakes1234 5 years Gravy has always kind of grossed me out. Don't know why. I think it's the fat. Cranberry all the way in any form. divinedebris 5 years Both, great mixture. fuzzles 5 years Both! But a leftovers sandwich really gets a yummy kick in the pants with a layer of homemade cranberry sauce--no gravy or bacon. ccsugar 5 years Gravy, I like cranberry sauce on its own :) Sherellj 5 years I dont eat Turkey, I know I know but I like the gravey though NurseKimberly 5 years Both elocin85 5 years I don't like either one that much, but I love to dip my turkey in mashed potatoes.
