Some people wait all year to cook an entirely-from-scratch Thanksgiving feast. Other people want all the classic turkey-day flavors with none of the hassle (or clean-up). If you fall into the latter category (no shame in that!), Trader Joe’s has got you covered. Their new Turkey & Stuffing en Croute comes complete with turkey, stuffing, gravy, and cranberry sauce. All you need to do is supply the pie.
The best part about the new product is that it’s not just turkey and stuffing in a box. Rather, it’s turkey tenderloin and cornbread stuffing hand-rolled in flaky, buttery puff pastry, topped with herbs de Provence (a blend of rosemary, marjoram, thyme, and lavender). The dish uses the same technique as beef Wellington, another comfort food favorite—and popular item at Trader Joe’s.
So you’ve got the turkey and stuffing covered. What about the other sides? Trader Joe’s figured that out too, by packaging the puff-pastry turkey with cranberry sauce (made with orange juice and orange zest) and turkey gravy, flavored with mushroom broth, black pepper, garlic, onion, and sage. So although you may be choosing convenience over homemade, you’re definitely not missing out on flavor.
Each 40-oz. box sells for just $13 and serves 8 people. You can find it in the freezer aisle at your local Trader Joe’s. And even if you're planning a more traditional Thanksgiving menu, we love this idea for an easy, no-stress Friendsgiving.
