The List: Thanksgiving food power rankings

Sadly, Meat Loaf did not make the list - Mark Dadswell

We asked you for your Turkey Day power rankings. Here are the results of our ironclad Twitter poll.

Note: Due to adamant specificity by the voters, we were forced to count votes for "Turkey" and "Fried Turkey" as separate votes. Similarly, we split votes for anyone who voted for a specific type of dressing/stuffing. It is your own fault for stressing the superiority of preparation and/or ingredients.

1. Stuffing/Dressing - 89 points

2. Turkey - 67 points

3. Mashed Potatoes - 39 points

4. Fried turkey - 24 points
