Be Thankful for a Thanksgiving Day Meal from Cracker Barrel!


Cracker Barrel Old Country Store just made Thanksgiving so much easier. No more standing over the stove all day while your family is enjoying time together. This year they are offering a prepared Thanksgiving dinner for 10 people that costs about $11 a person. These to-go meals can be picked up from any store location from Nov. 17 to 25. The meal is  placed in the fridge and then just heated up Thanksgiving Day.

The Heat n’ Serve Holiday Family Meal To-Go promises to serve 10 people and costs $110, which comes out to a little more than $10 per person.
What a deal! Buying the ingredients to cook all those dishes could cost more than that plus, no one get stuck slaving away in the kitchen.

The meal includes two turkey breasts, cornbread dressing, turkey gravy, cranberry relish, sweet yeast rolls, plus three sides. The side selection includes green beans, fried apples, hash browns, sweet potato casserole, macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes, carrots and corn.

 Green bean casserole is also available, but it will cost a little extra. The dish is a Thanksgiving must-have for most people, so it’s probably worth it. The meal also comes with a whole pumpkin pie and a whole pecan pie. YUM!

Wow! This meal will fill even your hungriest guest and you are the Thanksgiving meal hero! You decided whether they need to know just how you did it all!

For anyone feeding a smaller group, there’s also a Homestyle Turkey n’ Dressing Family meal which comes with about the same items as the larger meal, but serves six people and costs $68.

If you’d rather not spend any time at all cooking, Cracker Barrel is open on Thanksgiving Day starting at 11 a.m. Those meals are $13 for an adult and $8 for a child. Just keep in mind they will be crowded and you won’t have leftovers for sandwiches.

With this great deal we can be grateful for family and that we don’t have to cook!
