We are a free from tradition family. First off, we don't do turkey. Chicken is preferred for light eating. Sometimes it is whole roasted, but preference is spatch cocked.
This year was an early feast of chicken enchilada. Didn't get any photos of the enchilada making.
Did get a few of the bacon wrapped jalapenos I stuffed with cream cheese and cheddar/jack cheese for appetizer.

Thanksgiving?
Breakfast is buckboard bacon.
Main course is beef steak skewers on the kettle.

Wishing everyone a great holiday .

Thanks for the likes and replies everyone.
Especially you Warren HalfSmoked HalfSmoked You acknowledge the nods (likes) so well, you earn the shout out.

I'm not great on getting photo records of my meals.

I did get a shot of my wife's cheesecake this morning. She makes amazing cheesecake.
Son requested the Mrs Richardson's Caramel Sauce which I enjoy, too.

I missed quite a few Thanksgivings myself, cooking for other folks in restaurants. We now do a mostly traditional as this is pretty much the only time we eat Turkey. I did make ABT's as an App. The Baker, daughter#2, spent this week at a friend's house, so we had a pretty crappy store bought Pumpkin pie. So much Spices, you couldn't taste Pumpkin!
The Turkey Breasts were good and we made disco disco Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Potatoes. They were really great!. We ate almost all the meat but have a lot of Stuffing and Gravy leftover. I will likely cook another Turkey, to use up leftovers, early next week...JJ

Sounds like a great meal.
I smoked a brisket, so we didn’t do traditional either!
