With Thanksgiving just a few days away, you’re probably already stressing about how you’re going to find the time to prepare and cook all the dishes your family loves digging into on turkey day. You might also simply be lacking in any culinary skills and wondering how you’ll be able to pull off even a modest dinner. Whatever the case, there’s no need to dread the food-focused holiday thanks to some of your favorite restaurants offering to take care of the meal prep for you.
Places like Popeye’s and KFC are offering turkeys with their trademark seasonings, but you’ll have to check with your local restaurants to see if they’re participating. Most locations for the ones listed below, however, are offering everything you’ll need for the big feast — including appetizers, side dishes, turkey, and plenty of pies for dessert. All you have to do is heat and serve!
When it comes to home-style cooking, not many restaurants come quite as close to the real deal as Cracker Barrel. Their Heat n’ Serve Holiday Family Meal To-Go ($109) includes two oven-roasted turkey breasts, cornbread dressing, turkey gravy, cranberry relish, choice of 3 country sides (each serves 10), sweet yeast rolls, and pumpkin and pecan pie. You can also pick just the turkey with your favorite sides ($67.99), or a few pies on their own.

This staple for comfort food is offering a Roasted Turkey Meal for 12 ($119). The dishes include a whole roasted turkey, spinach and artichoke dip, mashed potatoes and gravy, home style stuffing, cranberry walnut relish, dinner rolls, and pumpkin and apple pie. The restaurant also offers a combo of boneless turkey breast and ham for the same price.

Instead of stocking up on the restaurant's frozen food options, you can have them prepare turkey breast, a whole turkey, or make it a combo with ham ($109-$159). Each option comes with their feast trimmings: apple-sage stuffing, fire-roasted yams with cranberry streusel topping, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, turkey gravy, chef’s vegetables, cornbread, pumpkin or apple pie, and their house blend coffee.

You’ll have to check with your local restaurant to see if they’re participating in the Thanksgiving festivities. If so, you can order a seasoned fried turkey on its own ($39.99) and grab some fixin’s for the side dishes like mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, mac and cheese, Bojangles’ Dirty Rice, Bojangles’ buttermilk biscuits, and various desserts.

When it comes to the Farmhouse Feast, your family can choose between options with both turkey and ham ($114.99) or pick just one main dish ($79.99-$84.99). Either one will go perfectly with sides like corn, bread and celery dressing, mashed potatoes with gravy, rolls, green beans with ham, macaroni and cheese, pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie, and double-crust apple pie. They’ll also be open on Thanksgiving if you don’t feel like heating up your own oven.
