Tired of Turkey? Try 1950s Alternatives


While visiting with family this Thanksgiving, we ran across a few alternatives to the seasonal bird of both Thanksgiving and Christmas. We found these cooking suggestions in a 1950s version of the Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book. I know for some, these will be no surprise at all. My grandparents were quite used to these possibilities. For others ... well, a revelation!


Take a look and try venison, rabbit, squirrel, and Hasenpfeffer (I cannot read the last without hearing the chef from the old Bugs Bunny cartoon saying it while chasing Bugs). Good recipes, I'm sure, and startling alternatives that will keep your family talking at the table.
