Trader Joe's Serves Up a $13, Stress-Free Thanksgiving Box
If you're like me and are slightly dreading this holiday season, but know you'll have to put on your adult pants and cook in spite of the chaos that's happening, then you're you going to be very happy about this grocery store find. Let the clouds part and the skies sing because Trader Joe's just announced a new product called Turkey & Stuffing en Croute, which is basically an entire Thanksgiving dinner in a box for just $13. It doesn't get easier or more inexpensive than that, my friends.
Inside the box you'll find a turkey loin that's wrapped around cornbread stuffing, all wrapped in a flaky puffed pastry. Turkey gravy and cranberry sauce are also both included in the box. All you have to do is supply the mashed potatoes and a pumpkin pie and you're good to go.
If you're trying to think of other delicious and easy side dishes to accompany your Trader Joe's turkey, here are a few ideas.
You need something green and crunchy at the table to combat all that stuffing and gravy, and this slaw is just about perfect. It's super crisp and tangy and it's speckled with dried cranberries.
If you want to keep some kind of tradition alive after buying the Turkey & Stuffing en Croute, then this classic green bean casserole is a good bet. It's simple, it's homey, and the leftovers are always the best.
Another green, tangy recipe to add to your Thanksgiving table. This one is super easy with just five ingredients (plus seasoning).
The Turkey & Stuffing en Croute might also make a good addition to your freezer for meals down the road this holiday season. I'm guessing, however, that it will only be around for a short period of time, so stock your freezer now and enjoy this Wellington-esque feast for months to come.
