8 Great Thanksgiving Meal Kits You Can Order for 2023
Take some of the work (and stress!) out of Thanksgiving.
There are many elements to preparing a Thanksgiving dinner that can be stressful, including the shopping, planning and, of course, the actual cooking. With the help of a meal-kit delivery service, you can take away two of those major points of stress by having all the pre-portioned and prepped ingredients you need to craft a delicious meal delivered straight to your door. If you've subscribed to a meal kit service before, you know how easy it is to follow along with the recipes while cooking with the exact measurements of ingredients you need. This year, more brands than ever are offering that same ease on Thanksgiving with meal kits that have everything you need to make a classic turkey day feast. Be sure to order early, though, as most services are only accepting Thanksgiving orders up until about a week before the holiday. Below, we've rounded up a few meal kits that have us eager to dig in on Thanksgiving.
HelloFresh’s Thanksgiving feast is back, offering stress-free dinner options (without requiring a subscription!). You have two entree options: the Traditional Turkey Thanksgiving box ($19.99 per serving) and the Beef Tenderloin box ($26.99 per serving). Both come with sides, including classic herb gravy, mashed potatoes with garlic and sour cream, brioche stuffing with cranberries, garlicky green beans, fresh cranberry sauce and an apple crisp with cinnamon pecan crumble for dessert.
The boxes serve between four to 10 people, depending on which you select. Pre-ordering is open until November 16 or while supplies last, and remember that your turkey needs four days to defrost when selecting your delivery date.
