HelloFresh: for traditional dishes
HelloFresh has two options for your Thanksgiving meal.
The Turkey + Sides Box includes a roast turkey with garlic-herb butter and gravy, mashed potatoes, ciabatta stuffing, roasted delicata squash, cranberry sauce with orange and cinnamon and an apple ginger crisp for dessert. This box serves eight to 10 people and costs $169.89, plus $19.89 if you add the optional cranberry brie crostini appetizer. If you don’t like turkey, try the Beef Tenderloin + Sides Box for $134.95 that comes with the same sides, minus cranberry sauce, but with the addition of a peppercorn-crusted beef tenderloin with sherry thyme jus and beef gravy. This box is perfect for small groups and will feed four to six people. Preorders are available through November 18.
Home Chef: for your side dishes
If you like your turkey recipe but need help with your sides, check out Home Chef’s menu.
Choose from brussels sprouts with caramelized onions and maple bacon glaze, cheddar cornbread with jalapeno popper schmear, and roasted sweet potatoes and apples with poached cranberries and pecans. Or maybe loaded mashed potatoes are more to your taste. Menu items start at $49.95 and feed six people. Preorders began October 15, so don’t be surprised if some items are sold out.
If your situation is the opposite of above, Hickory Farms will ship you a 14-16 pound bird that will feed eight-12 people for $79.99. For $185, that turkey will be delivered with brown sugar sweet potatoes, green bean casserole and apple and sausage stuffing, as well as a chocolate pumpkin cheesecake.
Blue Apron: for a vegetarian meal
Blue Apron’s vegetarian kit includes a butternut squash and spinach risotto, four-cheese and truffle honey flatbread, roasted sweet potatoes with walnuts, sage and brown butter and a flourless chocolate cake with candied pumpkin seeds and whipped cream. You’ll need to order this kit, which sells for $67.93, by noon November 16 to ensure delivery by November 23. For non-vegetarians, there are also traditional Thanksgiving meal kits with all the classic dressings like turkey, mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce.
Vegans haven’t been left out of the holiday’s yummies. Purple Carrot members can order a plant-based meal for four people that includes quinoa-stuffed delicata squash, cranberry sauce, ciabatta stuffing, a pear cranberry crisp for dessert and more. Each box costs $75 and should be ordered by November 16 to ensure it’s delivered on time.
Let’s be honest ... some of you will need a drink to deal with certain family members. Harry & David’s cocktail mixes can come in handy. Order the entertainer’s cocktail mix trio, a bloody mary drink mix and a Moscow mule kit to give your family and friends options. You can also keep it simple with an assortment of wines that can be delivered.
Goldbelly: for your desserts
Don’t forget to save room for dessert. Goldbelly offers desserts from throughout the country, so you can find sweets to satisfy everyone’s tooth. Cookies, pies, cakes — and PieCaken — are all available in pretty much any flavor you want. Prices range from $29 to $189.
Being far from home doesn’t mean you can’t surround yourself with people you love. A potluck Friendsgiving is a great way to eat well without having to prepare the entire meal yourself. Entrees, sides and desserts can be bought individually. Prices range from $16.95 to $99.95, and delivery dates depend on what you order.
