What's Your Thanksgiving Dish?

Do you have a favorite Thanksgiving dish? Is it that green bean casserole with the (ugh!) Cream of Mushroom Soup? Or cranberry-orange relish that your mom always makes? Oddly I don't remember any special T'giving traditions, not even sure where we had T'giving dinner but I doubt it was at our house. Probably at one of the aunts'.
We always had the usual; sweet potatoes, turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce (that jelled stuff in the can), pumpkin pie.
But here's my traditional dish, the one I'm always asked to bring. It's yummy, and really easy, which is always nice.

Corn Soufflé
1 8 ½ ounce pkg Jiffy cornbread mix
2 sticks (1 cup) butter, melted
1 15 oz. can creamed corn
1 15 oz. can white or yellow corn, drained
1 8 oz. carton lite sour cream
2 eggs, beaten

1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Combine the cornbread mix and melted butter in a large bowl. Add the creamed corn, white corn, sour cream and eggs; mix just until combined.
2. Pour into a greased 9” or 10” baking pan; bake until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted in center comes out dry – 30-40 minutes.

Would love your recipe if you've got a favorite.

Here's my favorite T'giving pie:

Cranberry Walnut Pie

2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
½ cups walnuts, chopped
1 ½ cups sugar, divided
1 stick butter
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon almond extract
2 eggs, beaten
Grease 10 inch pie pan with oil. Cover bottom with cranberries and nuts. Sprinkle with ½ cup sugar. Melt butter, add flour, almond extract, remaining sugar and eggs. Mix, pour over cranberries and nuts. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Raisins may also be added. Serves 6—8.
