Shopping for a big meal can add up fast. Smart planning is one way to maximize the value of your shopping trip. Some great ways to get more value are making a list, shopping the sales and planning your menu with the right tools – like our roast calculator, designed to help you find the exact size of roast you need to feed your group. And don’t forget to ask our team members in in the Meat Dept for help, as many cuts are available at our counters, and can be customized to your needs.

Here's some menu inspiration to help you plan an easy Thanksgiving dinner for your family & friends:

1. Classic Thanksgiving Dinner for a Crowd

If you’re hosting a big group and looking to cover off all the Thanksgiving dinner classics without breaking the bank, this menu is for tailor made for you. From a whole roasted turkey to bacon-wrapped acorn squash wedges, cranberry sauce cheesy garlic mashed potatoes and a traditional pumpkin pie for dessert, this meal more than satisfies.

2. Thanksgiving Dinner for Two

Just the two of you celebrating this year? This calls for smaller quantities of Thanksgiving dinner favourites. Try a flavourful stuffed turkey roast, our Bakery Dept.’s pull apart rolls, savoury sides like our Caramelized Brussels Sprouts and a grand finale of easy mini Apple Pot Pies.

3. “Anything But Turkey!” Thanksgiving Dinner

Passing on turkey this Thanksgiving? No problem. We’ve got fully cooked, hickory smoked honey spiral hams, beef roasts, and even delicious whole roasted chicken recipes if you prefer to keep the budget in check. Pair with Baked Squash and Nutty Cranberry Fried Rice, and a prepared apple pie a la mode from the Bakery Dept. Serve a festive Compliments Cranberry Ginger Ale Flavour Soda to get in the spirit!

4. Vegetarian Thanksgiving Menu

We’ve got a complete Thanksgiving menu for vegetarians and omnivores alike that’s sure to please. Start with a simple appetizer platter with fresh vegetables, marinated ingredients (think olives, artichokes or mushrooms), a smooth hummus, and wedges of pita or flatbread. Follow with the main event: A whole roasted Cauliflower with Sage and Blue Cheese. Serve with a bright green side like our Spinach & Roasted Pear Salad with Candied Pecans and for a sweet finish, serve these

5. Vegan Thanksgiving Dinner

Start off with a crowd-pleasing snack of Roasted Cajun Chickpeas or a Classic Baba Ghanouj with pita chips to get the festivities started. As a main, serve our Vegan Bolognese Lasagna, and dress it up with the addition of Compliments Plant-Based Simulated Beef Meatballs. Serve with a Roasted Beets and Greens Salad and some Chili-Garlic Wilted Greens. For dessert, impress with a beautiful Vegan Lemon Meringue Pie.
