our quick-fix Thanksgiving meal options below!
The Quick-Roasting Turkey: 15 Minutes of Prep
For most people, the turkey can be the most dreaded aspect of Thanksgiving
preparations. You need to plan out how far ahead you should defrost the
turkey, clean in out properly, make sure it cooks correctly and then carve
it all up. If you prefer to just get to actually eating the turkey, we have the
perfect quick-roasting turkey recipe for you. The chopped up bird will still need to roast for around an hour,
but the overall workload is cut down to just 15 minutes!
If you want the traditional turkey but don’t want to put in all the
prep time, consider ordering a pre-made turkey from Sprouts, Whole Foods,
Trader Joe’s, Costco, or another local grocery store.
Mash Your Sweet Potatoes in No Time
Something about the deep orange color of sweet potatoes goes hand and hand
with fall. Adding a delicious smashed sweet potato dish to your Thanksgiving
meal may seem like more stress, but this recipe offers you a quick and
easy solution to avoid more pots and pans to clean. All you need is a
microwave (can be boiled if preferred) and a few key ingredients! The
recipe includes variations for sweet, savory, or cheesy options that will
sure to be crowd pleasers. Serve one, two, or all three in just a matter
of a few minutes.

Can Your Least Favorite Sides
You can take that literally or figuratively—if you really don’t
like certain sides, don’t feel the pressure to stick with tradition!
Switch out tired, old sides with more flavorful, easy options. If you
don’t have time to go crazy with all the side preparations, opt
for frozen or pre-made options in desperate times. Frozen vegetables may
not be as great as freshly chopped ones, but they can cut back on your
meal workload and make sure you get to invest your time into more profitable
moments. While you should exercise caution when purchasing certain frozen
and pre-made foods, you can find plenty of healthy alternatives in the store.
Other ways to cut back on Thanksgiving Day stress include preparing main
ingredients for your dishes ahead of time, asking friends and family to
bring a dish with them, and cutting out unhealthy dishes for a more lean meal.
No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake
Enjoy a delicious pumpkin pie, cheesecake creation that literally takes
just 15 minutes or less! You can whip up a dessert that the whole family
will love without even having to pre-heat your oven with this no-bake
recipe. The pie will need to set for a couple of hours, but you don’t
have to give it another thought once you’ve mixed it together.
This delicious, creamy treat will be the perfect way to finish off your
easy Thanksgiving meal!
