Do You Hate Thanksgiving Turkey?

Thanksgiving Turkey: Love It or Hate It?

Here's a dirty confession: every year, I consider making an alternative to turkey (pork, duck, ham) and scrapping the overhyped bird altogether. This secret is one that I've largely kept in the dark. But as recently as last year, I've noticed some other turkey ambivalence come out of the woodwork. An informal chef survey in Esquire revealed one in five chefs would happily scrap the bird. How do you feel about turkey? Do you think it's the star of the meal, or will you gladly do without?

I'm kind of burned out on turkey.

I love it as long as it's cooked right. Nothing worse than smelling the turkey roast all day and then biting into flavorless cardboard disguised as turkey.

I really am not a turkey fan on the DAY OF Thanksgiving, I typically don't eat it. I love it as a centerpiece on that day, but after wards, I'm all for leftovers. Particularly turkey sandwiches with Miracle Whip.

I don't like turkey so I don't eat it on Thanksgiving. My mom has always made a turkey and a ham, but I have grown to dislike ham as well so usually I just eat sides. This year though I might make some fried chicken to go with my sides.

I'm not a vegetarian but I really don"t care for meat. I do love the gravy all over everything else so I guess the turkey is good for something.

I listed "undecided" but really mean "ambivalent." I just want an entree that's well-prepared and served with love. Whether that's a turkey, beef tenderloin, or duck honestly doesn't really matter to me. I'm more about the sides on T-Day.
