1. Peppermint bark
In fact, give us the whole forest. This is the reigning king of all the holiday foods.

Potatoes cooked in fat for hours. 'Nuff said.

3. Mashed potatoes 
But only if drenched in similar amounts of fat as previously ranked potatoes. And yeah, we put potatoes back to back. Deal with it.

Unless it’s bark-ified, it’s more of a decorative obligation than anything.
