Our family (my kids and my Mom)( I have a very small family)

feel the same way about "messing" with the stuffing, sweet potatoes,green bean casserole, marshmallow salad etc.
My husband's family, on the other hand, would experiment quite often and two thirds of the family DID NOT LIKE IT! One year his parents tried corn bread stuffing vs bread stuffing .more than half was left in the bowl. Another time the candied sweet potatoes were replaced with Brandied whipped style. Some discretely spit their 1st bite into their napkins..I had three helpings . all of us may have liked these foods on another day but not on Thanksgiving!

On Holidays the "mouth in your mind " knows what it wants..and expects to taste and nothing else will do.
