Everything Thanksgiving: Get all our Thanksgiving recipes, how-to’s and more!
Grocers, gourmet retailers and even fast-casual restaurants have started delivering Thanksgiving dinners. (And 5% of consumers have ordered takeout meals to serve on the holiday in years past, according to the National Restaurant Association.) The options range from gourmet sides and sweets to fully cooked turkey dinners. All you have to do is heat everything and dig in ― and express thanks that someone else did the cooking.
Here are a few mail-order options for your Thanksgiving meal.
You could go to Williams-Sonoma to buy all of the kitchen gear you’ll need to prepare a homemade feast, or you order their stuffed turkey breast and all sides without spending hours in the kitchen. The complete Thanksgiving dinner serves four and includes a cooked turkey breast stuffed with basil, thyme, lavender and fennel; green bean casserole; butter chive mashed potatoes; and a pumpkin pie. All you have to do is heat and serve. Order by Nov. 22.
If you don’t want to trek to the supermarket to shop for the ingredients to make side dishes like cider-roasted Brussels sprouts, traditional herb stuffing and mashed potatoes, order the prepared foods online and have them delivered with Whole Foods Prime Now option. The grocer has a Thanksgiving menu that includes a long list of a la carte sides. Orders can be placed as late as 10 a.m. on Thanksgiving, based on availability. Prices vary by region.
The quick-serve restaurant might not be the first place that comes to mind for a holiday meal, but its Holiday Heat and Serve dinner earns rave reviews. The whole roasted turkey meal for 12 includes all of your holiday favorites: turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, cranberry walnut relish, dinner rolls, and apple and pumpkin pies. The items are pre-cooked and packaged frozen. It takes less than two hours to heat and serve the entire meal, and the house will smell like you’ve been preparing for days. Order by Nov. 24.
Grand Traverse Pie Company
It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without pie. Each bite of Grand Traverse Pie Company’s Autumn Harvest Pecan Pie is filled with pecans floating in a sweet, gooey filling and their signature flaky crust. Not into nuts? The Michigan bakery also makes cherry crumb and apple crumb pies with local fruit.
