  2. Cranberry Jello Mold

    Cranberry Jello Mold

    I don't want my belly to jiggle so why would I want my food to jiggle? This screams food FAIL on all levels: color, texture, presentation, taste, etc.

  3. Green Bean Casserole

    Green Bean Casserole

    All casseroles borderline on barely edible. The veggies just get overcooked and they make for soggy, watery imperfection. Blech.

  4. The Chainsaw Cutter

    The Chainsaw Cutter

    If you have to use any type of electric knife to carve your turkey, we're in a lot of trouble.

  5. Turducken


    If you have to kill three birds with one stone (meal?) then it's a pretty big food FAIL in our book. Turkey + duck + chicken = no Thanksgiving meal we'd ever touch.

  6. Tofurky


    I respect vegetarians (I am one), but faking a turkey with tofu just sounds nasty. Can't you just eat the goods God gave us rather than faking a bird? No thanks.

  7. Turd Cookies

    Turd Cookies

    If you're trying to make a first (last?) impression with some in-laws, don't try these at home. Turd cookies will win the kids' hearts, but that's about it.

  8. Giblet Gravy

    Giblet Gravy

    Dear Founding Fathers, we know you lived during times of scarcity, and kudos to you for letting no animal part go unused. But giblet gravy? That's one innovation we didn't need.

  9. Mincemeat Pie

    Mincemeat Pie

    A close relative of giblet gravy -- take all the parts that weren't fit for a king, throw them in the blender and slather them into a pre-made crust. Delish!

  10. Turkey Cake

    Turkey Cake

    Move over, pumpkin, there's a new cake in town! And it's made of ground turkey, mashed potatoes and yams. No teeth required!

    You know what? I really hate thanksgiving. It has to be the most pointless and unnecessary holiday of the year. We take a day out of the year to stop and think about being thankful? Why cant we be thankful all year for things we have? And what if youre life is in the toilet, and you really cant think of a single thing to be thankful for? People ingest gluttonous amounts of food, for what purpose? To show how much you can stuff yourself? Is thanksgiving just an excuse to watch yet another day of football? And then of course there's the black friday nonsense. America is so programmed to go spend , spend, spend, money it doesnt have on things they dont really need. People waiting in line for a week to get into Walmar. For what? Is a tv or game system really worth all that, even if you are saving a little money? Is that all your life is about? Buying things? To hell with thanksgiving. if i never touch turkey again in my life it wont break my heart. What a useless waste of time...

    I disagree. Turkey and mashed potatoes? Everyone eats it on Thanksgiving anyway. Yams with it? Why not?

    Obviously folks here haven't been hungry before. About the only thing I wouldn't eat is the tofurkey, because I know how to cook a real turkey. The turducken is kind of scary but it wouldn't deter me. Turkey cake is weird but I'm sure the denizens of the local old folks homes would be thrilled with it. I'm not a fan of yams & marshmallows (WAAAY too sweet) but there's better ways to prepare yams. The main issue with these dishes is how they're prepared & presented. I'm a halfway decent cook (in at least 15 years, no one has ever gone home with food poisoning from Thanksgiving at my home) so I must assume the problem is with the preparation & presentation. Chef Ramsay has taught me well, one is as important as the other!

    A close relative of the giblet gravy, but worse....my aunt used to love to put diced, hard boiled egss in the giblet gravy. Dude, if the giblets weren't bad enough on thier own, the diced hard boiled eggs gave you a visual that was hard to forget. It looked like it had been eaten before.

    I have flash backs of the stuff every time I have to clean up dog vomit.

  • mia 2010/11/27 20:38:33
    all the people who say that the sweet potato casarole is disgusting has never tried it because it goes really well together .. both sweet potatoes and marshmellows are sweet so if you actually think about it try it and use your brain ppl..... you will realize that its a preety good pair! But turkey, chicken and duck seriousley..... ugh! ewww! (trust me on my opinion because i am a food critic so i know

    Turkey cake
    I 'd have to say the turkey cake would be the worst, but after reading what it is made with it doesn't sound all that bad. Tofu turkey is absolutely disgusting, why not just eat soy beans with a little gravy!. Just my opinion, why wreck prefectly good sweet taters by putting marshmellows on them?

    the turducken has to be loaded with fat. I actually don't agree with the fact that tofurkey is 'icky' because i tried some of my cousin's tofurkey (he's a veagan) and it tasted pretty good.
