Zaychavitch : You undercooked the wooden spoon.

Dutch Duk : "A personal butter bath, don't you wish you could have that?" Yes, yes I do

opentehtrap : Great babish. But can you please show us how to cook a 25lb turkey in the microwave

alize0623 : “Basics with Babish” *whips out several hundred dollar Sous-Vide machine*

Zoogoo40 : Be sure to serve your butter with a side of butter.

Aaron Powell : Can you make the warehouse guys Caprese salad from the office?

Lateman Parodius : A lot can change in a year. Currently, I have a job and an apartment. Last year, I was homeless and living in my car. On thanksgiving, a friend gave me a few leftovers. Green bean casserole, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, gravy, and some turkey. I had some orange juice as well. In a normal ceramic bowl, I combined them into what I've taken to calling '2017 stew'. I heated the mixture in my car using a jerry-rigged stove made using a ceramic plate, some of those little tea lights (unscented, because I could get a pack of about a hundred for super cheap), and one of those metal stove drip pans (close to the size of the plate) which was inverted over the burning candles. When the mix was too thick, I would add either some gravy or a splash of orange juice to thin it out. If it was too thin, I would add more of either stuffing or mashed potatoes to thicken it. I never managed to get it 'hot', really, but it was at least lukewarm (a welcome change, given the cold weather at the time) and tasted like thanksgiving in a bowl. So... if you folks have leftovers around this year, why not give it a shot? Just play fast and loose with it (and use a proper heating method, because that 'stove' I made was janky as all get out). And remember to be thankful for the basic things you have. Like a place to live. And food. Remember those that've helped you get to where you are today, and have a good Thanksgiving.

SuaavaChina : You should make hot chocolate from Polar Express

Carol Shuturan : Potatoes are not grains. They are root vegetables. They don't contain gluten.

ZGX : Anyone else think thanksgiving sides are better than the turkey?

Your Friendly Neighborhood Smark : No cranberry sauce? No Mac n cheese? No HAM?! I feel robbed Babish

Galactic123 : I don't think sous-vide ANYTHING can be considered a "basic". I don't know any casual home cook that has ever sous-vide anything. Most people who utilize sous-vide are past the basic stage.

sgeivo : How long has the "new" website been new???????

WickaWickaWoo : Yams? You mean SWEET POTATO

jonathan tanner : WHERE IS THE STUFFING? (and the first person to say 'on the StoveTop' is getting punched')

adithyac1001 : No STUFFING??? We've been cheated...

Liam T.W : 4:20 roux-demintary

James King : No Mac n Cheese?! Wtf Babish!

Chuma Uyamadu : should i have let the onions and buttermilk dry after the 15 min???

Burnt Trees : Man said green bean casserole holds a place in our hearts but not mac n cheese

Summit Heino : Hey Babish you should make Brock's Jelly filled donuts from Pokemon.

EvenWhyProductions : I made the green bean casserole. Best god damn cream of mushroom soup I’ve had, used shiitakes as well. Bouta put the whole thing in the oven

Clinicalyabrasiv : No mac & cheese? no stuffing? no cornbread? we gonna need a part 2 Babish

BnaBreaker : Turkey can suck it... it's ALL about the sides on my plate.

RiRi Mars : Imma bout to roll up to my grandmothers house with those yams “IN YOUR FACE AUNT JUNE I CAN COOK!!!”

Melynne Jimenez : I'd like to see you insult my yams this year KAREN!

RandomdudeZ9 : Finally. The things people actually care about, not the turkey.

Chaelea Rennie : So I made the green bean casserole and oh. my. god. It is AMAZING.

Jenny Le'Dang : You’re green bean casserole was a hit with my friends and family!! Definitely will keep making your version! Also should have told your viewers to save the onion oil to cook other things with. I simply fry my eggs in that oil and it gives it sooo much flavor! Love watching your videos. :)

Emerson Yu : Is it weird that listening to his voice through earbuds is satisfying? Also...that food...

Leyla Asici : It’s so strange to me to see “yams” prepared in such a sweet way. I’m from New Zealand and we call them kumara we normally roast them in the oven and salt them

Rajita : My family's favorite Thanksgiving side is my grandmother's broccoli casserole. She always doubled the recipe and brought at least 2 casserole dishes of it, and it was almost always cleaned. Sadly, my grandmother passed away a few years ago. And she never showed anyone the recipe. So now, every year a couple people bring broccoli casserole, trying new recipes in an attempt to get close to what my grandmother made. No one has ever yet nailed it, but it is still a nice way to remember her. :)

Stonemansteve II : Noice!

Caleb Davis : Ima need a fire Mac n Cheese recipe ASAP 😂😂😂

Zack : "Basics with Babish but I use ingredients and pieces of hardware that no basic homecook would ever have."

jasminesfeels : ugh I was dying to know your go-to stuffing recipe

Eric Scott : Hey Babish -- what can you make ahead of time? Maybe the cream of mushroom? Fried onions?

Jeanine Twomey : Wood is flammable. Cue the music "The more you know..." :-)

fearshh : I have Ham for thanks giving cause me family dosent like turkey sadly.

Mad man : 1:47 - "That we want to whisk minimally, just enough to incorporate the butter, because we dont want to build up any gluten" Andrew, I think recently you were making way too much pastry.

Edwin Robbins : Potatoes can't develop gluten; they're gluten free
