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.

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.
