10 DELICIOUS THANKSGIVING ALTERNATIVE MAIN DISHES // CREATIVE LIFE ANTICS

TURKEY TAMALES WITH GUAJILLO-CRANBERRY MOLE

I’ll be honest, I had doubts when I first saw this one. But after reading that this is what she made with the leftover turkey, I’ve got to say that it sounds amazing!! Definitely worth a try. You can only have turkey sandwiches for so many days after …

STUFFED BUTTERNUT SQUASH:

This dish looks just as amazing as I can imagine it tastes. Plus I really love squash… so, I’m in.

MAPLE- BRAISED PORK BELLY:

Yeah this just made my mouth water. I love the idea of a pork product for the main dish.

Absolutely in LOVE with this presentation. And the idea itself is just so unique. I’ve never seen anything like it before.

SMOKED SAUSAGE STUFFED PORK LOIN:

This is another really unique idea for me. Not that stuffing things is “new”, but stuffing sausage in a pork loin is definitely new. Really love the idea.

CORNISH HEN WITH APRICOT GLAZE:

Definitely not a turkey, but still in the fowl family these cornish hens look delicious.
