What can you substitute for a Turkey as the main meal on Thanksgiving?


I love turkey on Thanksgiving, but would like to serve something a little different this year. What else could be just as festive and meaningful?

    Hawkeye, you have me drooling over your smoked salmon suggestion. It does go well with almost any meal or dish. Fish was our Lord's most common meal and over which he gave thanks many times.

    I do love lamb. I also think the association of the passover and giving thanks to the good Lord above is a good way to stress the meaning of the celebration.

    Well, I guess if the oven is not working, that would make it easier to decide. You have improvised well. The store near us does have some yummy rotiserie chicken. Thanks for the idea.

    That is a very nice thing to do, Lipnancy. I would imagine the food variety would be quite interesting and fun to sample.

    I really do enjoy roasted chicken and your suggestion is quite appealing. I will have to consider this option.

    I am thinking honey ham is one of my favorites at Easter, but why not Thanksgiving too? My hubby has always wanted to try fried turkey, but I don't know about guests. Sounds good.

    That is a great idea: I can have my turkey and ham. Why not? I can see how this would please most guests in our home. Thanks.

    Freecamping aussie, wow, that looks really good! I can see how this would make Thanksgiving special around here. I love garlic, mint & rosemary on meat, especially lamb. I am tasting this already.

    Now that is another wonderful suggestion! I would add some baked apples and rice to compliment the dish.

    I think I am following that thought right now. Something different but a small bird for the traditional celebration folks. Thanks for your help.
