Tofurkeys are very well meaning. They include vegetarians. They pardon turkeys. And we love including vegetarians and pardoning turkeys. Just, not as much as we love eating pigs.
A note to vegetarians: This is not ‘that article’ about how make a meat-free holiday — it’s the exact opposite. It’s that article about how to incorporate pork into every part of your Thanksgiving festivities, from appetizers to dessert.
Perhaps it’s a little untraditional and unnecessary — not to mention guaranteed to receive a few scowls from your Kosher friends — we think that bringing a little more bacon into the Thanksgiving mix is exactly what the pilgrims ordered.
Our bacon-themed menu is sure to delight even “Mrs. Brittle,” the bacon-loving Pinterest user who we dearly hope isn’t making all the recipes she pins. It includes everything from autumn-friendly appetizers, like Maple, Bourbon, and Bacon Spiced Walnuts, to magnum opuses like Bacon-Wrapped Turkey. But why would we stop there? There’s even bacon for dessert — and it’s the easiest lattice piecrust you’ll ever make in your life.
