Turkey on Thanksgiving — a more stubborn American tradition you will not find. The problem is that, year after year of our obligation to serve turkey, it has become excruciatingly boring and predictable. And most people seem to have arrived at the same conclusion… That turkey actually sucks. There I said it.

Usually at the hands of adventurous home cooks, big business, or herbivores — these lame attempts at creativity do nothing more than offer insight into our true feelings towards the turkey.
Today, Foodiggity explores some of these efforts that we believe are thinly veiled hate crimes against the turkey, and ill-advised cover-ups for its shortcomings.
