Whether this is your first year hosting Thanksgiving or what feels like your one hundredth, HelloFresh's Thanksgiving dinner box eases the stress of holiday meal preparation. Even if you aren't a HelloFresh member, you can feast on delicious mains and sides—such as turkey, mashed potatoes, roasted squash, ciabatta stuffing, and apple ginger crisp—that serve as many as 10 people . Choose between one of two menus surrounded by mouth-watering sides: one featuring a whole roasted turkey and the other with roasted beef tenderloin. Your HelloFresh box arrives on your doorstep a few days before Thanksgiving and is packed with fresh ingredients to make each dish; all you have to do is assemble and cook it. The instructions are super easy to follow, so beginners and expert cooks alike can create a craveable holiday spread. Just make sure you allow the frozen turkey four days to thaw, and your Thanksgiving dinner is bound to be a hit.

"We cooked up HelloFresh's Thanksgiving dinner box for an editor taste test, and this meal kit was a hit," said Editor Laura Miller. "I'd never cooked a whole turkey before, much less a complete Thanksgiving spread. HelloFresh's easy-to-follow instructions made me feel confident preparing every dish. Portions were generous, and the food was flavorful and tasted homemade—because it was!"
