A Ridiculously Expensive Thanksgiving

The Daily Meal 11/19/12

Thanksgiving has always consisted of a standard menu — turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and gravy — with possibly a few additions and variations thrown into the mix. But with such a pre-determined meal every year, it's always fun to come up with some ways to add variety to the meal.

How to Make the Ultimate Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey Sandwich

Last year, the American Farm Bureau Federation reported that the average Thanksgiving dinner for 10 people cost $49.20. That's quite the bargain at $5 dollars a person, but what if you wanted to go a little crazy and max out your credit card on the Thanksgiving meal? We decided to play a little game called "What if we were zillionaires?" and mixed things up to figure out a way to spend more, not less, on Thanksgiving dinner.

From adding a $900 bottle of wine to the gravy to folding in some $150 foie gras into the stuffing, this Thanksgiving menu is outrageously expensive, making it a holiday meal unlike any other. Although we don't expect anyone to actually whip up this meal fit for a king, we hope our pricey suggestions inspire you to add some variety to your Thanksgiving meal, and maybe a little something decadent just for fun.
