Just add Maine lobster to enhance the traditional Thanksgiving meal!

People are looking for the heart and soul of a really special Thanksgiving feast, and there’s a lot you can do with lobster without sending the turkey packing.

Family and friends gathered around the Thanksgiving table, passing around lobster stew, baked stuffed lobster, turkey with lobster stuffing, and lobster biscuits with gravy? This may not read like a traditional feast, but the truth is that it is for a growing number of families in the country.

For many, Thanksgiving—and pretty much any holiday dinner—is not just a past-time, it’s also showtime. Platters covered with crudités, bowls filled with mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce, and pies line the kitchen counter, often defining the traditional holiday meal. And while many can’t imagine missing out on Grandmother’s herb and chestnut stuffing or Mother’s turkey gravy, there’s another contingent of Americans out there eager to break out the large pot, strap on bibs, and sink their teeth into lobster—lobster served up in just about any dish, any way one can imagine.
