Want to try something different this Thanksgiving. Perhaps go with a different side or dare I say not have a turkey. Here are some great alternatives that you could try this Thanksgiving.

A Turkeyless Thanksgiivng

Be thankful on Thursday for some new serving ideas. Contemporary ingredients turn up in Greens with Roasted Corn and Pepper Salad, Blue Corn Bread Dressing, and sautéed duck, yet this whole menu is grounded in tradition, moving smoothly from Mushroom Turnovers to Mincemeat Charlottes. It’s familiar enough to feel friendly, but adventurous enough to impress even the most jaded palate.

Thanksgiving with a Korean Twist

Thanksgiving in Korea, called Chusok, celebrates the new rice harvest, and dessert is always made from the new crop. Fuse American and Korean traditions by serving Maple Roasted Turkey as the main course and Pumpkin Rice Pudding for dessert.

Or keep things simple and small if it’s just the two of you.

Just-Us Thanksgiving Menu

This easy—yet impressive—menu features traditional ingredients in innovative ways. The star is turkey tenderloins stuffed with a savory mushroom filling and sides include a Roasted-Corn Bread Stuffing and frozen Apple and Ice Cream Pie.
