INDIANAPOLIS — If you want to take a break from all the shopping, prepping, and cooking this Thanksgiving, you can swing by these six stores and restaurants and pick up a pre-cooked meal with all the fixings.
Most of the meals come cold or frozen and will have to be heated.
Here are some of the options available this year:
Bob Evans is serving up several options for your Thanksgiving feast.
The “Turkey Farmhouse Feast” comes with turkey, dressing, corn, mashed potatoes with gravy, rolls, green beans, cranberry relish, and pumpkin pie. A four-serving feast costs $59.99 and an eight-serving feast costs $89.99. Bob Evans offers the same meal, but with hickory-smoked ham, for $54.99 or $84.99.
The “Premium Farmhouse Feast” has everything included in the “Turkey Farmhouse Feast” as well as hickory-smoked ham, macaroni and cheese, pumpkin bread, and double-crust apple pie. It costs $124.99.
Boston Market offers five different meals for you to choose from for your Thanksgiving feast. All Boston Market meals serve 12.
The most expensive meal, at $159.99, features a half prime rib in place of turkey or ham, sides, rolls, and two pies. The traditional turkey meal, spiral-sliced ham meal, and combo ham and turkey meal cost $129.99 and include sides, rolls, and two pies. The “Essential Whole Roasted Turkey Meal” is the cheapest, at $109.99, but includes fewer sides and nixes the pies.
Cracker Barrel has two options for its classic Heat n’ Serve Thanksgiving meal — the “Heat n’ Serve Feast”, which feeds 8 to 10 and costs $139 (and includes the option of ham as the main course instead of turkey), and the “Thanksgiving Heat n’ Serve Family Meal”, which serves 4 to 6 and costs $69.99.
Both meals include dressing, gravy, cranberry relish, sides of your choice, and yeast rolls. The “Heat n’ Serve Feast” includes pumpkin and pecan pies, but the “Family Meal” does not.
Put that Costco membership to good use this Thanksgiving by ordering a Schwan’s Thanksgiving meal. It serves eight and includes turkey breasts, mashed potatoes, gravy, sweet potatoes, corn, green beans, biscuit dough, apple and pumpkin pies, and ice cream.
Meijer offers a deluxe turkey dinner for $49.99, which includes a 10- to 12-pound prebaked Butterball turkey, stuffing, turkey gravy, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, cranberry relish, and a dozen King’s Hawaiian dinner rolls. A deluxe ham dinner with the same sides and fixings is also $49.99. The dinner can feed 8 to 10 people.
