How many ways are there to do a Thanksgiving feast?
Several LA restaurants are offering offbeat twists on the staple items of the season. Here's where and when.
Trejo's Coffee and Donuts: Thanksgiving Doughnuts
Pumpkin pie? Yes, of course, but that doesn't mean there's no room for something sweet from Trejo's Coffee and Donuts in Hollywood. There's a filled doughnut with a nutmeg glaze and pumpkin pie custard. It's part of a limited time menu.
- When: Nov. 25 through Dec. 1, closed Thanksgiving Day
- Where: 6785 Santa Monica Blvd., Hollywood
- Price: $2-$3
This Thanksgiving Burger is a Bun-Based Feast

- When: Through Nov. 30
- Where: All 11 Slater's 50/50 locations

Turkey Ice Cream is Happening
We should be saving this for last, but why wait. Salted Caramel Thanksgiving Turkey, Blood Orange Cranberry Sauce, Roasted Peach & Sage Cornbread Stuffing -- those are some of the seasonal flavors featured this month at Salt & Straw scoop shops, including Downtown Disney District, in the Arts District, on Larchmont, and at other spots around Southern California.

Thanksgiving in Pot Pie Form
The Pie Hole is offering all the Thanksgiving favorites stuffed into a pot pie, which seems about right as temperatures start to drop.
- When: November

Return of the Super-Stuffed Thanksgiving Croissant
A croissant is pretty much perfect as is, but if you're up for filling it with as much slow-roated turkey, gravy, stuffing and cranberry sauce as possible, Milk Bar has the croissant for you.
- When: Through Nov. 29
- Where: Milk Bar
- Price: $8

Turkey-duck-chicken sausage is nestled in a grilled King's Hawaiian roll at the Dog Haus. Then, they heap on gravy, crispy fried onions and slaw.
