Let's begin by classifying the turkey/dressing/cranberry sauce/gravy complex as a single fully-mandated program, and remove it from consideration.

I'd have to say the highest-priority side dish is white potatoes, either baked in their jackets or mashed, because otherwise where are you going to put the gravy?

In the eyes of a true Southerner, Ms. Sofi (such as you, as Uncle Jim aptly pointed out to me), it must be argued that potatoes in any form are really nothing more than a Gravy Transportation Medium (GTM). Any GTM that can hold a copius quantity of said gravy thus is a requirement for any Thanskgiving repast.

In my own misspent youth, when the potatoes were gone I was known to slather two pieces of cornpone with the stuff, let it sit and soak for a minute, and then eat them with a spoon.

In truly dire circumstances, when even the bread had all disappeared, I'd simply upend the gravy boat into my gaping maw and swallow (eliciting squeals of laughter from my younger brother and screams of dismay from my mom).

But I digress...

Yes, but what kind of gravy?

Milk/cream/mushroom/KFC (my cousins' "secret family recipe")

Cornbread stuffing with lots of sage and onions...and gravy. I like giblet/turkey gravy just fine, but not with bits of liver in it.

Ahhh and cranberries. Cranberry/orange relish, jellied cranberry sauce, whole cranberry sauce, I don't care. I love 'em, cranberries, those distinctive-flavored, festively-colored tart little berries.

Yes, but which stuffing? In our house, anything that comes out of a box or a bag is NOT stuffing. Stuffing is 2/3 cornbread, 1/3 white bread with lots of sage, onions and celery. Period.

None of this Yankee oyster stuffing stuff for us, thank you no.

But you guys (and gals): Hapi has already mandated dressing. Dressing is stuffing!

I'm going to say buttery rolls (with butter on them).

Buttery rolls -- with butter on 'em? You're clearly a woman after my own heart.

Heh. I was sort of past the original "what's the highest-priority sidedish" original question.

Mostly I'm just trying not to drool on my keyboard, at this point.

That's too much. LOL Hapi is serious about her Thanksgiving.

Pasteles is my favorite. But with chicken, not pork butt.

Thanksgiving at our place always, always starts with gumbo. Crab, oyster, fish sausage, and shrimp. Om nom nom nom. It is the bestest. Pass the saltines, baby.
