The Bottom Line: Our love affair with turkey is drying up
The Full Story:
- A new survey by Omaha Steaks shows Americans want something other than turkey at the center of their holiday dinner table
- While that may be true, holiday dinners only go 64-percent as planned
- The top contender to replace turkey is ham
When you think of a traditional Thanksgiving meal, turkey is front and center. Until now. Thanks to a new survey by Omaha Steaks, we are finding out there is quite a variety of main entrees being devoured across the country. 65-percent of people want an alternative main dish.
That’s not the only thing we’ve discovered thanks to this survey. While we all can agree that nothing surrounding the holidays goes exactly as planned, dinners only go 64-percent as planned! That’s a lot of “going wrong.” Our biggest fail is the dishes all coming out at different times. After that it’s not enough seating and forgetting the cranberry sauce.
What are the top replacements for turkey at the table?
- Ham ( 60-percent)
- Chicken (41-percent)
- Roast Beef (37-percent)
