Every year at Thanksgiving we gather around the table and, most of us, dig into a huge, delicious turkey. For those who don’t like turkey, however, other options. Here are a few featherless favorites.

Honey-Glazed Fresh Ham

Honey-glazed ham is typically a Christmas and Easter classic, but there is no reason not to serve this incredible dish more than twice a year.

Beef Wellington

This classic entrée is usually enjoyed at Christmas dinner, which makes it the perfect dish to serve to get you into the holiday spirit. Wrapped in flaky dough, this filet steak is coated with pâté and duxelles, making it a delectable main dish.

Pork Tenderloin with Warm Plum Salsa

A whole roasted pork tenderloin will easily steal the show at any Thanksgiving dinner. This tenderloin is topped with a sweet, chunky plum salsa that serves as a great replacement for cranberry sauce.

Herbed Rack Of Lamb

Roasted in a classic marinade of Dijon mustard, garlic, onion, rosemary, and thyme, this tender rack of lamb has a rich but simple flavor. It works nicely with a glass of red wine and some scalloped potatoes for the perfect dinner.


Brisket is a great alternative to turkey because the meat, which is a comfort food for many, is juicy and delicious. It goes well with some roasted vegetables and a carrot and onion gravy.
