One of the biggest features when it comes to Turkey Day in Animal Crossing is Franklin's cooking event.

For that event, players must collect all the secret ingredients to help make their island's Turkey Day dinner memorable.

Turkey Day Secret Ingredients Guide

To begin, players must speak to Franklin in their town's plaza. He'll tell you which ingredients he needs. If you forget, players can always go back and ask again.

Players will need to collect different ingredients for four recipes. The ingredients for each can be found below:

Clam Chowder

1. Manila Clam x3

To collect these, players must wait on the beach until they see a little black dot on the sand. From there, they can dig up and possibly get a Manila Clam. This should be repeated 2 times to get all of them.

2. Scallop x1

This is the recipe's secret ingredient. A Scallop can be found through diving in the ocean. Players can only dive if they have the diving gear from Nook's Cranny or the ABD.
