29 Alternative Thanksgiving Turkey Recipes

From Turkey Meal Pastries to Thai Turkey Meatballs

— November 25, 2014 — Unique
Rather than going about cooking the holiday bird the way tradition tells you to this year, these quirky Thanksgiving turkey recipes offer new ways to enjoy a holiday staple.

If you're a fan of both sweet and savory flavors, some recipes opt to stuff the inside of turkeys with Twinkies or Dunkin' Donuts, which is sure to bring a lot of talk to the Thanksgiving table. To go completely off the beaten path, there are also some creative recipes for Thanksgiving-inspired meatballs, sushi, desserts and vegetable platters that appeal to those on a vegan or vegetarian diet. Either these dishes will have you thankful for being adventurous, or grateful that you're sticking to convention this year when it comes to the dishes that will be served around the Thanksgiving table.
