Some traditions surrounding holiday meals in the USA are Dungeness Crab (Northern California/Northwest), Kalua Turkeys (Hawaii), Christkindlmarket (Chicago), Noche Buena (Florida).

Few of the traditional holiday dishes and meals in the USA are Cranberry-Orange Roast Ducklings, Holiday Green Bean Casserole, Traditional Holiday Stuffing, Holiday Lettuce Salad, Christmas Meatballs, Citrus-Molasses Glazed Ham.

My favourities meals are  Tortellini & Spinach Soup, Herb-Crusted Prime Rib, Classic Beef Wellingtons, Artichoke Caprese Platter, Caramel-Pecan Apple Pie.

Apple Pie and The Hamburger are the best foods to eat on holiday in the USA.

It will be Thanksgiving soon. That meal is traditionally roast turkey with dry bread stuffing, lumpy mashed potatoes with brown gravy, sweet potatoes baked with marshmallows on top, various vegetable side dishes, canned cranberry sauce, bread rolls that are hard on the inside while soft on the outside, and pumpkin pie.

My favorite dish for Christmas is pulled pork, can't get enough of it. This year, I plan on spicing things up a bit and preparing my own jerky, I love this treat as most Americans do. Got a new Nesco dehydrator to make the meaty treat, found it here a few weeks ago … sco_FD-75A
