This super easy turkey cutlets alternative Thanksgiving menu is very quick to make. The fruit salad and cookies must be made ahead of time, and the stuffing cooks in the crockpot, so all you have to do is make the entree just before serving. And the fabulous aroma is just like the traditional Thanksgiving dinner!

Turkey cutlets can be found in your grocer's meat department. They cook in just a few minutes and are a great item to have on hand for quick meals. This delicious and beautiful cranberry sauce makes the meal festive. I love this menu for an alternative Thanksgiving because you get all of the flavors with none of the work!

  • Turkey Cutlets with Cranberry Pistachio Sauce
    Not only is this recipe quick, easy, and delicious, it's beautiful too! You could use cashews or pecans instead of the pistachios, but do make the sauce. It's the perfect finishing touch on this simple recipe.
  • Sweet Potato Stuffing
    This recipe is a great way to combine two traditional side dishes into one delicious dish.
  • Overnight Ginger Fruit Bowl
    There's nothing like a salad you can make ahead of time to make entertaining easier! This luscious recipe is flavorful and gorgeous too.
  • Butter Pecan Turtle Cookies
    If you love chocolate and caramel, this is the cookie for you. I've been making these bars for decades and love them more every time I take a bite.
