What is the most traditional Thanksgiving bread?

Don't say cornbread because where I live cornbread is eaten throughout the year.

I am looking for a bread menu item -- not stuffing and not dressing --  that is eaten only on Thanksgiving.  Traditional not any new or modern item.  Some type of biscuit or muffin or roll peculiar to Thanksgiving Day.


Also, not cake nor pie.   A traditional Thanksgiving bread that one may or may not put butter on when it is piping hot.


Thank you everyone!

I looked at the originial food served at the first Thanksgiving.  I don't see any bread served at all.

Thanks Josie.  If I do the whole dress up like Natives and Pilgrims thing, then I will skip the bread.

For anyone interested, I saw a recipe (albeit new 2013) for a giant horn of plenty or cornucopia which is bread made from bread stick dough shaped over foil rather than a large loaf hollowed out.  The recipe uses egg wash to make the exterior shiny (if that's important).   It reminds me of a jumbo croissant or crescent roll.  Unlike a plastic table decoration, you can put plenty of edibles in the horn and eat the horn of plenty itself.
