The SEAL Team star shares his must-have holiday indulgence.

When he's home for the holidays and on hiatus from playing soldier Sonny Quinn on CBS' military drama SEAL Team, actor AJ Buckley puts his healthy diet habits on hold and delights in his favorite Thanksgiving dish.

"My brother-in-law Lee Knaz is a professional chef [Mission Olive] and he makes a crazy mac 'n' cheese. I'm on a strict diet so I can't eat it all the time, but I wait until Thanksgiving. If no one wants the leftovers, I'll take it home and eat it for, like, two days."

A new season of SEAL Team premieres Wednesday, Dec. 2 at 9/8c on CBS and Paramount+.
