Tired of preparing turkey every year for Thanksgiving? These alternate Thanksgiving recipes prove that you don’t need turkey at your dinner table to make Thanksgiving delicious.

alternate Thanksgiving recipes

1) Honey-Glazed Ham: If you’re opting out of turkey, ham is the second-closest thing to having a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. The honey sauce in this recipe – which includes extra goodies like cinnamon and sugar – adds a sweeter touch.

 

2) Beef Brisket: The beef in this recipe gets smothered in delicious chili-based sauces and fall vegetables like potatoes, carrots, and onions. Adding beer sounds a bit unorthodox, but it adds to the flavor.

 

3) Crown Roast of Lamb: Rosemary, minced garlic, and oregano get cooked into this delicious, tender meat that’s been brushed in olive oil. Lamb is an uncommon delicacy; why not try it for the holidays?

 

4) Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms: If you have a vegetarian at your dinner table, then this might be a good idea. Portobello mushrooms have a more meaty taste than other mushrooms, and stuffing them with cheese, garlic, and eggplant puts all the yummy food in one easy place.

 

Don’t be shy – try your hand at any of these alternate Thanksgiving recipes. You just might like one of them better than turkey, and introduce a new tradition to your family’s dinner table.
