Plated is offering 2 options to make your Thanksgiving easier than ever. “Just The Extras” includes an appetizer, 2 sides and a dessert while “The Full Feast” includes an appetizer, salad, 4 sides, cranberry sauce, the turkey main course and a dessert. Both options feed 4-6 people and can be ordered and included in your 11/17 or your 11/24 Plated shipment. You must subscribe to the Plated meal delivery service, but can easily skip weeks or cancel your subscription at any time.
Plated Thanksgiving: Just The Extras
Plated “Just The Extras” includes an appetizer, 2 sides, and a decadent dessert. This selection serves 4-6 people and costs $56. Plated includes step-by-step instructions, ingredients, and timing guidelines in the box. All you need to do is prepare and add the turkey (or your favorite main dish)! Please note that this is an add-on to your weekly Plated box, therefore a subscription is required, and can not be purchased separately.
The appetizer for 4 includes a whipped goat cheese tart with cherry-balsamic reduction, rosemary and pine nuts.
The sides in this box consist of pumpkin mac and cheese with mozzarella, Parmesan and crispy sage along with marinated beets with mascarpone thyme. 4 servings of each side is included.
Dessert includes a pecan pie with homemade whipped cream that serves 8. Plated recommends that you make the pie the day before so that it has time to set up and all of the flavors meld together.
Plated Thanksgiving: The Full Feast
Plated “The Full Feast” includes an appetizer, 1 salad, 5 sides, and dessert. This selection serves 4-6 people and costs $136.40 with free shipping. Plated includes step-by-step instructions, ingredients, and timing guidelines in the box. Skip the planning and shopping with the Plated Full Feast! Please note that this will replace your weekly Plated box and a subscription is required.
Like “Just The Extras”, “The Full Feast” box includes 4 servings of the whipped goat cheese tart appetizer to kick off your Thanksgiving dinner.
The kale and farro salad includes butternut squash, roasted beets and blue cheese. You can serve this as your second course or along with the main course as another side dish option.
The main course includes a roasted turkey breast with cranberry-orange compote, broccolini, and rosemary mashed potatoes for 4 people.
In addition to the sides included in the Main Course, you also receive 2 servings of the pumpkin mac and cheese and 4 servings of the sausage, squash, and brioche stuffing.
