When deciding what to bring to Friendsgiving, I never play with the idea of ​​a well-decorated cake or roasted brussels sprouts: my fate is already sealed. I have to bring the macaroni and the cheese. I brought this ingenious version to my very first friendsgiving many years ago just to see how it swallowed before I even had the chance to pull a crispy bread cube for myself from the top. Macaroni and cheese, although perhaps not the first dish you can think of when thinking of Thanksgiving food, is practically the first dish that disappears from your holiday table. That's because everyone – no, everyone – loves macaroni and cheese.

For one, macaroni and cheese are vegetarian (unless you choose bacon, in this case more power for you). It also fits into the general edible themes of Thanksgiving food: comforting, hearty and (mostly) starchy. Plus, if baked in a casserole (my recommendation) instead of on the stove, it's proactive, just requires a quick trip to the oven to get everyone bubbly and sticky before serving. On the other hand, if oven space is in high demand, Stove & Cheese gives an extra space for green bean casserole or warming dinner rolls.

If you like macaroni and cheese as much as I do, here are 10 recipes – both traditional and offbeat – to consider for your Thanksgiving table:
