Default Something Different for Thanksgiving

This is the first year in a decade or so I am not in charge of the bird. FIL always does oyster dressing. Anyone have any suggestions on some different sides that are enjoyed in their house?

I like stuffing made with Pepperidge Farm white mix, craisins, sausage, and chopped water chestnuts along with the usual celery and onion

Yorkshire Pudding. Goes great with turkey gravy, and more interesting than typical rolls.

Oyster shooters before dinner.
I like to make them with beer instead of vodka. More like food and doesn't throw everyone under the bus.

A few years back, we all decided to do a Mexican Thanksgiving. It was actually a pretty big hit with everyone.

When I lived on the coast, we always did seafood. That always got the typical "no shows" to actually show up for food.

I honestly don't care for Turkey and a lot of my family feels the same.

I like to get a 60 lb sack of oysters.

I use drago's char grilled recipe on about half of them.

Always intend to do all of them but end up eating a bunch as we shuck.

if you want to try mirlitons and can't find them I could mail you some

have done that before and was pretty good....

We break from tradition a lot and do shrimp,oysters, fish and/or crab cakes if go seafood themed, and also do BBQ with ribs, brisket, pulled pork, cole slaw , baked beans, deviled eggs etc.... normally mix it up between Christmas and Thanksgiving, Easter and other major holidays

I also make my (3) meat pasta with sweet Italian sausage,pepperoni, and meatballs, with (3) kinds of pasta twistie kind, bow tie , and long straight hollow ones not sure Italian names , cut large chunks green pepper, red onion and whole and 1/2 mushrooms in it, bake with mozzarella on top....

also do lobster fettucini if go italian theme, and if good hunting season been known to fire up the grill with deer tenderloins, duck breast wrapped in bacon....to change things up a bit

For Christmas we often make a whole beef tenderloin stuffed with king crab and other awesome
stuff like panchetta and chanterelles it's quite awesome and definitely not traditional for thanksgiving.

As a nod to traditional, try. A sweet potato soufflé. Lighter and better presentation.

Torfed, If you need a merliton and shrimp recipe, I don’t mind sharing one.

Lots, sound good. If you like a heavy stuffing. Use plain or egg bagels instead of regular bread for stuffing. If you like fluffy dry stuffing forget about it. Also a different side would be thinly sliced cucumbers done in a sour cream sauce.
