Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate with family and friends, eat a lot of food, and for many watch football.  Thanksgiving dinner, which traditionally features a main dish usually turkey or beef, with several sides including mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, and cranberry sauce followed by a dessert like a pumpkin or an apple pie or cheesecake can take all day to prepare.  Creating this feast can be a daunting task even for the most experienced home chef, but have no fear Thanksgiving meal kits are here!

Read on for more details on the Home Chef Thanksgiving Turkey, Sides, and Dessert.  And also check out the HelloFresh Thanksgiving box, the Sun Basket Thanksgiving, Dinnerly Thanksgiving, Marley Spoon Thanksgiving, the Purple Carrot Vegan Thanksgiving box, the Blue Apron Thanksgiving, and our round-up of the top all-natural turkey delivery services.  Or compare all of the Thanksgiving meal kit options.
