10 Things Midwesterners Always Have on Their Thanksgiving Table
There’s no place like home for the holidays, especially when you’re from the Midwest. When it comes to a Thanksgiving table in this middle part of the country, there’s a lot of convenience cooking to optimize football watching time and hours spent with family — that is what’s important after all! Thus, it follows that Midwestern Thanksgiving staples include a lot of things that can be whipped up with just a few cans of ingredients. That means one thing: casseroles.
Yes, in addition to Thanksgiving casserole staples such as green bean casserole and stuffing, you’ll find sweet potatoes, broccoli, and Jell-O all lovingly prepared in casserole dishes for you to enjoy. And all of these things are wonderfully drenched in cheese, of course. It’s not a Midwestern party without tons of cheese.
