5 Fun Twists On The Traditional Thanksgiving Dinner

5 Fun Twists On The Traditional Thanksgiving Dinner

First things first: there's nothing wrong with a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. A nice roast turkey (with gravy, of course), a healthy portion of stuffing and a little cranberry sauce on the side? Well it's hard to argue with that.

But year after year, Thanksgiving after Thanksgiving, those old favourites can start to get a little stale. And if you're feeling that way this year, we're here to help. Below, we've rounded up five fun alternatives to Thanksgiving classics. Incorporate one, two or more of these into your feast this year, and you'll have the whole family clamouring for seconds.

  1. Instead of roast turkey... try this succulent (and mighty impressive!) Stuffed Turkey Breast, which is rolled up with prosciutto, Swiss chard and cheese:
  2. Instead of your squash casserole... why not make a rich and creamy Roasted Butternut Squash Soup?:
  3. Instead of mashed potatoes... how about you give this decadent Rutabaga Mash with Sage a spin?:
  4. Instead of stuffing... flip things around with these Sausage-Stuffed Potatoes:
  5. And finally, instead of pumpkin pie... try this light and refreshing Lemony Ricotta Pie:

Whatever you end up making for your big feast, we hope you have a happy (and delicious) Thanksgiving!
