Maddie Marlow of Maddie & Tae: My mom makes a broccoli cheese casserole and that is amazing. And biscuits and gravy for breakfast sometimes on Christmas.
Taylor Dye of Maddie & Tae: I love sweet potatoes with marshmallow on top. It’s so good.
Chase Bryant: I’m looking forward to going home and eating Mexican food -- real genuine Mexican food. I cannot wait. Home is down by Corpus Christi, the small town of Orange Grove Texas, a thriving metropolis of about 1200 people. In my hometown, there’s actually something called the Chase Bryant Plate at a restaurant called Los Milpas. It’s cheese enchiladas, carne and a side of rice, beans, avocado, and chips and salsa, and tortillas. It’s like my plethora of favorite things I like to eat. And I’m also looking forward to my mom’s sausage balls. She makes the best sausage balls ever!
Scotty McCreery: I love a good old apple cider with some apple pie and vanilla ice cream on top. I know you can have that year-round, but whenever you can have it at Christmas time with the cider, it makes it a little more Christmassy.
Thomas Rhett: I like dressing. Some people call it stuffing. I like it plain, no gravy. I could eat three plates full of it. That’s the favorite thing I look forward to about Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Dustin Lynch: Honey Baked ham. I love it!
Chase Rice: Anything home-cooked. I’m not even going to say one thing. If I’m home and my mom cooked it, it’s my favorite because I haven’t had home cooking all year.
Kix Brooks: We fry turkeys at my place down in Louisiana where I go and spend Christmas. When people first started frying turkeys we set the yard on fire. We’re kind of experts now.
Cole Swindell: Somebody always drops off a Honey Baked ham at my grandmas and I always make sandwiches out of that for days. It’s always a Honey Baked ham!
Emily West: It has to be green bean casserole. That’s mine. Absolutely. Maybe a little of the cheese with jelly on top and an overwhelming amount of crackers, and that’s that.
Shannon Haley of Haley & Michaels: I love stuffing from Thanksgiving. My parents have just started making it for Christmas for me as well, so I’m very excited about that.
Ryan Michaels of Haley & Michaels: Birthday cake because I was actually born on Dec. 25th... so I can pretty much ask anyone for anything on Christmas pertaining to dessert and I usually get it.
Scott Borchetta: My favorite holiday food would probably be the cranberries. I know that sounds crazy, but I love them! I like the way my wife Sandy makes it. I love the way she does that. Then [there’s our] favorite holiday drinks of course. We’re big red wine drinkers, so I’m ready.
Ray Scott: I have to drift away from the traditional thing. We do a fried seafood feast on Christmas Eve every year and it’s become a big deal. I take home all my elastic waistband pants and we just get serious about it for a few days. That’s become what I look forward to the most is hanging out with family, eating shrimp and oysters.
Meghan Linsey: I love everything that’s bad for me. I love potatoes, I love gravy. I love bread. I love cheese. I just love everything that’s bad for me. It’s nice to be able to splurge during the holidays, take a nap, hang out with my dogs. It’ll be fun.
Gwen Sebastian: Absolutely turkey and dressing. Oh gosh, I love sugar cookies, and I still love my mom’s meatloaf. That’s going to be a holiday food because we’re going home for Christmas and I’m sure that will be on one of those days.
Katie Armiger: I have such a blended family so I go back and forth between houses and eat consistently for days. I love green bean casserole. Green beans are my favorite vegetable. So it’s kind of healthy... but not actually.
