This might be a covered topic already. But, this is a situation I am facing in my household this month & every November. At my spouses job, he is offered a free
Thanksgiving Ham or Turkey. Well, I say DUH, get the turkey!!!
He of course, picks the ham. I'm sorry, I'm used to the traditional Thanksgiving with turkey & stuffing (or dressing) & gravy! Ham is for Christmas dinner, right?? We are having a very heated debate over this. He's Italian and his family has NEVER cooked a turkey for Thanksgiving, just Ziti. He's so stuck on this damn ham. I said I was gonna buy a small turkey to cook and he told me not to. I'm gonna do it anyway, I simply LOVE turkey!!!! And I make a rockin' gravy too!!!!

So, I'm guessing my question here is: Ham or Turkey for Thanksgiving??

Anybody wanna stuff my turkey?

Thanksgiving has always been TURKEY day for my family.

Ham is for Christmas.

But, now my best friend, her family has always cooked both. On both holidays. Some members preferred turkey, some preferred ham. So they compromised and cooked both. Of course, she comes from a big family.

Compromise. Have duck.

Turkey for Thanksgiving AND Christmas! Growing up, my family always did ham for Easter. Personally, I don't even care for ham and I love it's a no brainer. However, I don't even bother with holiday meals anymore so it is rather moot to me.

shoot da' bird n save a pig

Have a Turducken. If you don't know what that is it is a semi boneless turkey stuffed with a boneless duck stuffed with a boneless chicken stuffed with stuffing but instead of stuffing use a ham.
Back to the question we almost always have both turkey and ham at both Thanksgiving and Christmas. I normally smoke a whole turkey and deep fry a turkey breast. I leave the ham to someone else.

In our house it is going to be venison and buffalo for Thanksgiving this year along with veggies and fry bread. It is what I usually make. There is a store in town that carries game meat and the buffalo meat.

You could even go this route and get a Fowl De Cochon (Pig Turducken). That should satisfy everyone.

Always have done turkey on thanksgiving. Ham or turkey for christmas depending on who in the family is here. Thankfully this year for thanksgiving it's just hubby kids and I . Less cooking lol.

Turkey is cheaper so get the ham from his job, buy a turkey and serve both. Both are good leftover.

Turkey for Thanksgiving...of course! We always have both though because my father-in-law doesn't like turkey, so we have ham and turkey.

Some kind of road kill might work! When I lived in Mobile, AL- I frequently saw armadillos laying on the side of the road- an occasional deer and once saw a goat too!

Turkey works for me on Thanksgiving tho- stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy- yummy!

pa's family never celebrated any holiday. they had no xmas, thanksgiving
or any of that. he was born in los angeles, ca. ma's family did all that.
i'm kinda unca scrooge macduck. bah humbug. throw in a swanson's
tv dinner, in the microwave, turkey that's it. but i would have lamb, the lamb
of god and all that. all that hassle and fuss over a huge meal by all the
chefs and cooks and stuff, and its all gone and done and over and unappreciated
in about one half hour. then the men go to sleep on the floor while the
women clean up. holidays past , presesnt and future. then some people
have to go to church on those days too. then indians wanna come over
and eat with ya. they used to have feast days in the church that lasted
weeks and weeks. funny how you said 'stuff my turkey'. i buy stuffing
alone sometimes to eat. put it in the microwave. they had packages
of it with gravy in it already. more ways than one to stuff a turkey. thx

My family always serves turkey and ham on both Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Has anyone ever had a Xmas goose???
I prefer turkey anytime..

Has anyone ever had a Xmas goose???
Well... no but if a cute lady wanted to give me one during Christmas, I'm sure I wouldn't mind!


Nov 11 @ 6:39PM  
Whatever Granny's cooking. I am not all that particular right now with $.28 cents to my name

Turkey it is!!!!!!! We always have turkey and ham but I have to go with the turkey, my aunt brings this.. . ham... . I don't know what the hell kind of ham it is... I call it Pam's Spam Ham.... it's just weird looking ham... from a can.. it's very edgy! LOL

I'm with you Sunshine... We've always had ham for Christmas dinner... My Mom ALWAYS makes the Christmas ham! *whew* Love ya Pam!

If he wants the ham so bad, and it's free...let him cook it. If he is Italian he probably cooks all the time and would be very willing to help in the kitchen so he may have his blessed ham. Get a turkey honey...and if he doesn't let you just worries babe, I really don't need another turkey in the house over the holidays!

If turkey is so good then why is it so cheap? If something that
cheap was really all that good then I'm sure people would

eat it far more than twice a year!

Go with the ham and Crosse and Blackwell cherry glaze.

However, stuffing and basting sounds like fun!

That's funny. But that may not resolve the issue as perhaps the turkey is also a pig.

Nov 12 @ 10:36PM  
Turkey all the way!

Nov 12 @ 11:55PM  
My family does both. Sometimes a beef roast gets in the mix as well. At the very least there is usually a smoked turkey and a regular one.

Nov 13 @ 5:56AM  
Turkey... ham is for Christmas and Easter.

Nov 13 @ 6:06AM  
Well since Ham and I have this little agreement (I won't eat it, and it won' t make me sick) it has to be turkey for the holidays.

Nov 13 @ 8:07PM  
We're Italian too....ziti with the turkey!

Nov 13 @ 8:19PM  
I have Italian friends that bring baked ziti for thanksgiving and it is most welcome as a side dish.
