Thanksgiving is that special food holiday where the laws of mixing foods generally doesn't exist.

On this amazing culinary holiday, you can mix stuffing together with turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, and sweet potatoes all on a piece of toast. That doesn't even remotely seem weird.

While discussing weird food combinations with co-workers, I was startled to learn that one co-worker mixes mayonnaise with canned cranberry sauce. Yes, mayo with cranberry sauce.

After posting this on Facebook, I had a lot of posts explaining how many people do this with a spread for sandwiches. I totally understand that, and will share a great recipe below. This coworker isn't doing that. This coworker is taking cranberry sauce out of the can, slicing on the can marks, and then spreading mayo to it like a Ritz cracker.

Is that not the weirdest/grossest Thanksgiving themed dish you've ever seen?
