It's never too early to start planning for Thanksgiving, one of those holidays where it seems like whatever can go wrong, will go wrong. There are so many factors in play, from making sure there are enough table settings to not overcooking the green beans, that the main event, the turkey, oftentimes becomes an overlooked, overcooked, impossible-to-carve disaster, requiring boats-full of gravy to revive.
But have no fear: this Thanksgiving, give the turkey a rest. Through the magic of the Internet, you can have a fully roasted, perfectly cooked turkey delivered directly to your door, and your guests will be none the wiser. Here are the best providers that we could find:
This company is best known for its wide variety of steaks, but did you know that they’ll also deliver a full Thanksgiving dinner to your door? For just $40, they’ll ship you a 2-pound oven-roasted turkey breast, two 12-ounce trays of green bean casserole and roasted garlic mashed potatoes, and two 14-ounce trays of whipped sweet potatoes. All you need to supply yourself is the gravy and stuffing! They also sell whole boneless smoked hams.
These guys won’t just bake a turkey and ship it to your door. They’ll smoke it, give it Cajun seasonings, and even pair it with a whole ham if you like. Their Whole Roasted Turkey Feast comes with an 11- to 13-pound turkey, gravy, cornbread dressing, sweet potato soufflé, and even a pecan pie, and sells for $74.95. If you need more sides, they sell orange walnut cranberries, various casseroles and soufflés, and a few different potato preparations. They also sell whole turkey breasts, and as their name implies, lots of varieties of ham.
Another place to get a roasted turkey breast and all the trimmings shipped to your door, DineWise will send enough to feed eight for $169.99. You’ll get 24 ounces of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, peas with caramelized pearl onions, and pumpkin and apple pies.
This company sells a lot more than frozen chicken pot pies, and their offerings include whole hams and turkeys (both breasts and whole roasted). The Whole Turkey Feast sells for $119.99, and includes a turkey, pie, and various sides.
