Welcome to Bite Back!, ESSENCE’s digital series debating the most heated food topics around the Black dinner table.

There is nothing like a Black Thanksgiving table. From buttery rolls and collard greens to some ‘slap yo’ momma’ mac and cheese, there’s no doubt that the dinner menu will be full of straight from the ancestors goodness.

But which dishes are an absolute must, and which ones never make the cut? Are we rocking with rolls or cornbread? Are you stuffing the turkey or dressing it? The ESSENCE team weighed in on a few of the most heated Thanksgiving debates, and for some, the results were shocking.

Watch the video to see which dishes made it onto our Thanksgiving tables, and which ESSENCE staffers might be losing their Wakanda cards.
