Although the most disliked dish — cranberry sauce, with 31.49% picking it — likely surprises no one, the survey didn’t differentiate between homemade tart goodness and the gelatinous monstrosity that slides out of a can (Don’t @ me).
Close behind, at 29.22%, was sweet potatoes or yams. At No. 3 was green bean casserole, with 28.04% saying “No thanks” to this dish traditionally made with Campbell’s soup and french fried onions.
Although it was No. 2 last year, turkey — the one dish cooks get out of bed at the crack of dawn to begin preparing — finished fourth in 2023.
What goes with turkey? Stuffing, of course, which 26.75% said they could do without, making it No. 5.
The remaining choices finished:
6. Ham: 25.57%
7. Coleslaw: 25.57%
8. Pumpkin pie: 24.28%
9. Mashed potatoes: 18.66%
10. Macaroni and cheese: 17.47%
11. Carrots: 16.98%
12. Apple pie: 16.29%
13. Corn: 15.50%
None of these. I like them all. — 13.82%
Maybe this is the year for pizza and wings instead of turkey and dressing.
