4 Turkey Alternatives to Try During the Holidays
Turkey is a classic holiday staple. But, why not try something new for your festive meal? We’re sharing four turkey alternatives to try this holiday season using fresh ingredients for a delicious new tradition your family will love.
Consider a ham this holiday season and dress it up with a tangy glaze. A honey mustard glaze gives just the right amount of flavour without overpowering the ham. Bonus for the chef of the house: the ham will only take a few hours to prepare. No more multi-day preparation for an entire turkey!
