budget-friendly thanksgiving menus

Thanksgiving is coming up and it’s certainly an important holiday to celebrate family and friends and food and all of the things we are thankful for. But just because it’s an important holiday doesn’t mean it has to be an expensive one. Here are a couple of budget-friendly Thanksgiving menu ideas that can help you have a delicious and memorable meal without breaking the bank.

Remember that most grocery stores will have the traditional Thanksgiving foods and ingredients on sale right now; take advantage of that! You can use the item search to see which foods are on sale at which stores. And think about recipes that only have a few ingredients: less ingredients means less money!

Thanksgiving Menu Idea #1:

turkey

turkey breast
If you’re only having a few people over, consider roasting a turkey breast instead of a whole turkey. It’s generally a little more per pound, but if you only need, say, 3 pounds, you’re paying a lot less than if you were buying a whole 15 pound turkey.

sweet-potatoes

whipped sweet potatoes

cranberry

cranberry sauce

beans

green beans with garlic

simple

simple apple crisp

Thanksgiving Menu Idea #2:

ham

spiral sliced ham

potato

simple au gratin potatoes

asparagus

roasted asparagus

rolls

30 minute dinner rolls

pumpkin

pumpkin pie bars
