Eight Superior Alternatives to Thanksgiving Turkey
Hot Pocket The Hot Pocket is the most disgusting of processed foods. But if someone replaced the turkey in our Thanksgiving dinner with a Hot Pocket, we would not complain. Not as long as we still had our mashed potatoes and stuffing and hot buttered rolls and apple pie a la mode for dessert. (Yes, yes, pumpkin is the Tradition, but we have almost as many issues with pumpkin pie as we do with turkey.) And the chips and dip while we sit through the football game. (Go Lions!) And the chocolate that somebody will invariably bring as a hostess gift. With all this bounty, who could blame us for ignoring the lousiest component of the meal, the Hot Pocket?
Which just goes to prove: the traditional Thanksgiving meal is great despite the turkey, not because of it.
