    What are your suggestions for a non-traditional Thanksgiving Dinner?

    I love turkey and dressing. LOVE IT. But every few years, I just want something different for Thanksgiving. Turkey at Thanksgiving AND Christmas is just a bit much. So what are your suggestions for a festive Thanksgiving dinner minus the turkey?

    Try making a hog maw dinner. I can personally attest to its "deliciousness."

    Lobster is recorded as being one of the foods eaten at the first American Thanksgiving. It is also delicious and can be prepared in a variety of ways. Venison is also a great alternative, one that was enjoyed by Natives and Pilgrims alike.

    I recommend roast pork loin because it pairs well with the traditional sides usually served at Thanksgiving. I did a recipe hub on this subject of trying something different instead of or in addition to turkey.

      Jan, pork roasts are wonderful. I prefer to make pork shoulder roasts because of the extra marbling, moisture, and tenderness.

    How about roasted chicken? Either a whole chicken of cut-up chicken, with roasted potatoes and lots of veggies and salad?  I think chicken is more popular in general and a not as dry as turkey.

    I also agree with Janshares about roast pork. Add some apple sauce and baked potatoes, delicious!

    Happy Thanksgiving. :-)

    This year we are having roast duck for a change.  We are also serving a cheese-sausage stuffed bread instead of stuffing and having oven roasted potatoes in place of mashed.  My hubby is making warmed mini apple turnovers topped with apple-pie ice cream.  Guess we are having a non-traditional year.
