Cranberry sauce can be quite a challenge if you decide to make it from scratch. And that jellied canned variety is a divisive alternative. So, get the next best thing to homemade: Harry’s Cranberry Sauce from Sam’s Club.
Harry's Cranberry Sauce
This may be the easiest pre-made side dish to prepare. Just pull Harry’s Cranberry Sauce out of the fridge, stir, and enjoy! Yup, that’s it. It’s made with three simple ingredients — cranberries, sugar, and water — and even comes in two resealable containers so you can enjoy one on Thanksgiving and open up the other one for your post-Thanksgiving turkey sandwiches.
You just need to have gravy if you’re serving up turkey, mashed potatoes, and green beans, and this one from Harry’s is a total win because it’s delicious and so easy to serve.
Harry's Roasted Turkey Gravy
Made with onions, celery, and roasted turkey, and seasoned with salt, white pepper, and sage, this gravy will leave your guests dying to know your recipe. But little do they know that you actually just heated Harry’s gravy in a saucepan just minutes before your guests arrived! You can also pop the gravy into the microwave if you’re in a time crunch (or have no room left on your stovetop).
Sam’s Club has so many good side dishes available for Thanksgiving, too. This potato gratin dish will really wow your guests without you having to put in any effort.
Member's Mark Cheesy Potato Gratin with Chives
“My favorite new items from Sam’s Club,” one reviewer said of the Member’s Mark Cheesy Potato Gratin with Chives. “Very impressive!” It’s a classic French dish made with creamy potatoes, milk, and mozzarella that just melts in your mouth when you eat it. Just place it in a pre-heated oven for about 20 minutes and you’re ready to serve.
Get a little creative with your veggies this Thanksgiving and opt for a crunchy broccoli salad from Member’s Mark rather than a green bean casserole. It may just be a nice change of pace!
Member's Mark Broccoli Salad with Smoked Bacon
This broccoli salad is made with freshly prepared broccoli, bacon bits, sweet raisins, and sunflower seeds, and the whole thing is tossed in a creamy dressing. “I love this broccoli salad,” one person wrote in their review. “People have asked me for the recipe.”
If you’ve been put in charge of bringing an appetizer to your Thanksgiving gathering, then the Member’s Mark party tray from Sam’s Club is going to save you a lot of time and energy.
Member's Mark Fruit and Cheese Party Tray
Loaded with cheese, grapes, and strawberries, you can give your friends and family a bit to nibble on before diving into the main meal. Each tray is assembled fresh in your nearest Sam’s Club and all you have to do is pop off the plastic top and let the party start.
And if you’re cooking for a small crowd, save yourself some time and pick up pre-made mashed potatoes from Member’s Mark at Sam’s Club. There are about seven servings in each of the two packs, so you can serve one and save one to eat with leftovers.
Member's Mark Yukon Gold Mashed
“Snuck these in at Thanksgiving. Everyone loved them,” one person said about the pre-made mashed potatoes. “And yes, I hid the container before my family came over. Sometimes Granny just wants to visit with her family instead of peel potatoes.” You can microwave these potatoes in under seven minutes.
Make sure to sign up for a Sam’s Club membership so you can pre-order these Thanksgiving items now and pick them up from your local Sam’s Club before Turkey Day arrives. Your guests will never know that you saved yourself a bit of time and effort on a few of your staple sides because everything tastes as though it’s home-cooked. It will be our little secret!
