ROLLS. Man, I love them. “Sister Schubert’s” brand are small, moist and buttery. The perfect size to have 5+ of them with your meal.
Robert Hadlock, anchor
Prime Rib — I rarely get it because turkey wins the day.
Roger Wallace, sports anchor
My wife’s cream corn, because it’s my wife’s!
Sydney Benter, anchor
Sweet potato casserole. It’s sweet potatoes smothered in butter, topped with brown sugar. It’s essentially a dessert masquerading as part of the main course and it’s delicious!
Chris Davis, reporter
Cheeseballs, like the kind you spread on crackers. This is a fairly new tradition for my family, but I love it. My brother makes them every year, and it’s just so much of what I love about the holidays. They
gather everyone around one place where we can talk and share while we’re all working on the meal together. Or at least pretending to while my mom selflessly makes all the classics. Also it’s cheese.
Sally Hernandez, anchor
Mashed potatoes … because I love all carbs!
Erin Cargile, investigative reporter
My mom’s mashed potatoes! One bite and you’ll understand why. The garlic, the butter and the cream — oh my.
Amanda Dugan, anchor and traffic reporter
I grew up eating mostly Italian food on Thanksgiving, so my favorite Thanksgiving dish is non-traditional: homemade raviolis.
Candy Rodriguez, reporter
Broccoli Rice Casserole
John Dabkovich, anchor
Stuffing. Carbs! It’s bread, broth and seasoning. You can’t go wrong.
Natalie Ferrari, meteorologist
Aside from the true star of the show, turkey…I’m crazy about a heaping side of mashed potatoes and gravy! The combination really assures that the nap to follow will be glorious.
Jody Barr, investigative reporter
The turkey, the next day. See, you have to get yourself some white bread and Duke’s mayo — this only works with Duke’s. You take strips of the breast and cover both slices of bread with Duke’s. It’ll change your life.
