    Ranking Every Thanksgiving Episode Of "Modern Family" By How Much It Fed My Soul

    A good Thanksgiving episode is hard to find, but Modern Family kept us fed for 11 seasons.

    Solid sitcom holiday episodes are few and far between, especially when it comes to Thanksgiving. Friends managed to nail a few trifling Turkey Day tales, and no true fan could forget HIMYM's Slapsgiving stories. But Modern Family is one series that consistently cooked up delicious Thanksgiving episodes.

    So, in honor of Hennifer the Chicken and Mr. Goat (two fallen Thanksgiving episode soldiers), here's my ranking of Modern Family's Thanksgiving episodes, from tasty to downright delectable.

    Honorable mention: “Did the Chicken Cross the Road?” (Season 10, Episode 7)

    Mitch laying on a lounge chair in his backyard with the chicken on his lap

    6. “Punkin Chunkin” (Season 3, Episode 9)

    the whole family gathers around the giant slingshot to throw the pumpkin

    5. “Thanksgiving Jamboree” (Season 8, Episode 7)

    Claire points her mason jar of wine at Mitchell, who's dressed like a farm hand

    4. “The Last Thanksgiving” (Season 11, Episode 7)

    Dylan holding up a hoola hoop on a runway for Jay and Phil to fly the plane through

    3. “Three Turkeys” (Season 6, Episode 8)

    Phil taking off his wedding ring while cooking the turkey

    2. “Phil’s Sexy, Sexy House” (Season 7, Episode 7)

    Haley and Andy sit on the couch wearing robes and try to turn off the romantic mood lighting

    1. “Winner Winner Turkey Dinner” (Season 9, Episode 7)

    Haley poses next to Phil's phone booth while he's inside crying

    Forever missing you, Modern Family! Especially around this time of year... BUT every episode is available to stream on Peacock.
