If you are travelling by airplane to Thanksgiving away, here are the rules about what foods you can take through TSA Screening in your carry on. Or what needs to be checked. Or just left behind.

And on the return trip when you are attempting to return home with leftovers from Turkey Day, the same rules apply.

Hopefully it is a Happy Thanksgiving for all, but you sure don’t want to leave what you thought was going to be a welcome addition to the table with a TSA Agent who wouldn’t let it through security.

Green Bean Casserole on your mind? Take it.  Casseroles are okay in your carry on.

So are baked goods allowed.  Homemade or store bought. So go ahead and wow your fellow celebrators.

If you are flying but you are responsible for the main course, yes, the turkey, you can bring it on board in your carry on whether it is frozen, cooked or uncooked.

And other meats are okay too. Ham, chicken, steak, deer meat. Good to go.

All yeses, A okay so far.

How about stuffing. No way right? Wrong. Stuffing can be carried on board. Cooked, uncooked, or boxed.

Mac n Cheese is a tradition for some at Thanksgiving. Another Yes. Cooked or just the individual ingredients are approved by the TSA.

Fresh Fruits and vegetables are alright, but only if they are originally from the mainland.  Huh?

Solid Cheese is alright.

And creamy cheeses and dips, less than or equal to 3.4 ounces are okay.

No more than that though.

If you have any questions, TSA.gov is the official website for all the information. This info came from Daily Meal.

No gravy.

No wine, champagne or sparkling cider. Or alcoholic beverages over 140 proof or larger than 5 liters.

And Canned fruit or vegetables, jams or jellies are allowed.

There you go. May the line not be too long for security. May your flight be on time, and oh yeah. Happy Thanksgiving.
