All the Places You Can Buy a Premade Thanksgiving Dinner So You Don't Have to Cook This Year
Cooking for Thanksgiving can be stressful, and frankly, 2020 has been stressful enough. These places are offering full spreads so you can give yourself a break and enjoy time with family.
On top of being open for dine-in eating on Thanksgiving day, Boston Market also offers a variety of pre-cooked spreads that you can eat at home — all you have to do is heat it up. Choose between an entire spread or mix and match your favorite side dishes.
Every year Bob Evans restaurants sell their signature Farmhouse Feast. The spread, which feeds four, comes with either slow-roasted turkey or hickory-smoked ham for the main, plus bread and celery dressing, corn, mashed potatoes with gravy, green beans with ham, cranberry relish, rolls, and cherry supreme pie.
Cracker Barrel's heat and serve meals are filled with all the Thanksgiving comfort food staples. Available in multiple sizes that serve up to 10 people, most of the meals are completely ready in just two hours. Don't forget to grab one of their famous pies, too.
