Spice up your holiday with these Thanksgiving alternatives.

If tradition doesn’t tickle your fancy for Thanksgiving, there are plenty of Thanksgiving alternatives to celebrate the holiday with your own flair. Perhaps you aren’t a fan of turkey, but that shouldn’t stop you from having a great feast! Just simply use some of the Thanksgiving alternatives we thought up. Our Grill-Roasted Whole Boneless Bison Prime Rib Recipe will make you question why the pilgrims ever even thought of roasting a bird in the first place.

If you’d like to give your holiday a little ethnic flair, you can try cooking a traditional Thanksgiving dinner enhanced by a few unique multicultural touches. For instance, turkey can be kept as the main dish, but topped with cranberry plum glaze and paired with ginger-spiced turkey meatballs, giving this dinner a delicious Asian-American twist.

Even if you wanted to throw a quirky Thanksgiving dinner menu à la fast-food joints, we have all of the tips and tricks to help you do it.

While this holiday is certainly one with a great history, that doesn’t mean you can’t make it your own, even if that simply means adding bacon to everything.

It's your holiday and you can eat what you like!
