I am looking for some innovative yet traditional dishes to serve for Thanksgiving?

Question by wickedchef: I am looking for some innovative yet traditional dishes to serve for Thanksgiving?
Our Thanksgiving here in canada is in 3 weeks, and although I could scour the recipes I have, I thought you would have some ideas that are just as good! I am having 14 people for dinner, and want to have a Turkey along with another meat, like a stuffed pork – no ham please.

Everything from appetizers and stuffings through to desserts – all from scratch. What do you think the perfect fancy meal would be?

What can you guys come up with?

Thanks!
Thanks, Mole – but Ham is Pork, yet Pork is not always Ham – Ham is more a style of cooked pork.

Anyway, your recipes sound really interesting, and I think I’ll email you!

wow hats off to you! i would cook the turkey on a grill outdoors to free up your oven for the other meat. pork is ham by the way. most common second meat served would be salmon.

appetizers would be king crab legs (if you can afford it), sliced veggies with a choice of dill dip, spinache dip, ranch dip etc., oyster stew would be a good opener, cooked shrimp, sliced dill pickles, sliced meat with cheese and crackers, olives,

desserts, molten volcano cakes, pumpkin pie, apple crisp, peach cobbler, berry mix cobbler, pecan pie, ginger cookies, red velvet bars, peanut butter cheese fudge,

fruit salad bowl of diced fruit, cornbread stuffing with raisins. green bean casserole all sorts. if you need recipes just email me, i have a bunch plus the ones i found on the website below
