Complete with two pies and cornbread dressing, the kit is shipped directly to your door.
We have been dreaming of a table laid with Thanksgiving delicacies for months. From family recipes that only make their appearance once a year, like Classic Candied Yams, to new variations on dishes that inevitably sneak their way into the rotation—looking at you, Pecan Cheesecake Pie—Thanksgiving is a holiday of gratitude highlighted with some of the best bites we eat all year.
If you’re the one hosting the holiday, however, it can be quite the endeavor to pull off. Determining portion sizes, creating a schedule to perfectly time warm sides, and gauging just how much oven space you’ll have at different points in the cooking process can feel quite daunting—not to mention all the shopping and dishes. Whether you’re planning on scaling down your celebration, hoping to spend a bit more quality time with guests, or looking to send a care package across the country to a loved one who can’t be with you on the holiday, Costco just announced a Fortune Gourmet Thanksgiving Dinner (Thanksgiving-in-a-box, essentially) to ease your burden.
The Thanksgiving kit comes with all the fixings to serve eight people for $199.99, which includes shipping, and lays a solid foundation if you’d like to add in a few homemade sides here and there. The kit includes:
5 lbs. of pre-brined, all-natural turkey breast (ready to roast)
2 lbs. of stuffing made with cornbread (dressing, really)
1.5 lbs. of mashed potatoes made with real dairy
8 oz. of velvety turkey gravy
1.6 lbs. of creamy macaroni and cheese
2 lbs. sweet corn
2 lbs. whole green beans
A jar of gourmet cranberry relish, spiced with cinnamon and cardamom
12 dinner rolls
One 8-inch pumpkin pie
One 8-inch apple pie with a sweet crumb topping
You may need to add on a dish of Corn Pudding or some Pecan Pie, but we’re pretty impressed with the thoughtfulness of this Thanksgiving kit—especially the cornbread dressing made with buttermilk! Not only does the product take a tremendous amount of work out of holiday hosting, it also allows the recipient at least six bonus hours of time. Sit down with friends and family, decorate the house, map out your dream Thanksgiving centerpiece, concoct a festive sipper—whatever you’d like.
Here’s the catch: The Fortune Gourmet Thanksgiving Dinner kits must be pre-ordered online, on Costco's website, by November 5 to guarantee delivery between November 8-17 (shipping takes approximately 2-3 business days, the website says).
Add a bottle of sparkling apple cider and toast to a day of family fun outside of the kitchen or share a box of joy with someone you love who can’t be present at your full-blown Thanksgiving dinner.
