Thanksgiving is almost here, and we’ve got turkey on the brain. Though we crave those mashed potatoes and green beans, nothing beats the bird, and we’re not just talking about the main course of your feast. We’ve found 11 clever (okay, also kinda hilarious) turkey-shaped dishes to serve alongside the bird that are turkey-free — at least in ingredients. These go way beyond your aunt’s turkey veggie/fruit platter, people. With the following recipes, your Thanksgiving table will be full of turkeys to gobble up from breakfast to dessert.
5. Butterball Turkey: No, this isn’t a traditional butterball turkey. Rather, it’s a turkey-shaped ball of chai spiced butter. It almost looks too good to spread on your Thanksgiving rolls. Almost. (via Bon Appetit)
7. Heirloom Pie Crust Cutters ($10): Snag these turkey-shaped cutters while they’re on sale and use them to decorate your Thanksgiving pie.
11. Color Me! Thanksgiving Cookies ($39): Order these delicious cookies with white icing for a fun Thanksgiving day activity. Once they arrive, decorate them with the five edible markers included in the kit.
Bonus! Assorted Nugget Platter With Drumstick Accents: OMG. This is probably the most epic Thanksgiving dish ever. This, uh, turkey is made entirely from fast food nuggets, complete with drumstick accents. (via Buzzfeed)
