Whether you’re having a hard time finding a right-sized turkey for your Thanksgiving celebration or having difficulty finding a turkey at all, consider these alternatives for the centerpiece of your holiday meal:
• Cornish hen. Each Cornish hen will serve 1-2 people. It can be prepared similar to roasted turkey, stuffing and all.
• Duck. Stick with the poultry theme! There are many ways to prepare duck and have fun taking Thanksgiving in a whole new direction.
• Beef Wellington. Is there a showstopper more classic than a beef Wellington? Bonus, goes great with favorite Thanksgiving sides like green beans and mashed potatoes.
