Premade Thanksgiving Meal in Denver Option #1: FIVE EGGS

ORDERING DEADLINE: End of day Wednesday, November 14

Talk about easy! With a couple of clicks, you can have a complete Thanksgiving meal brought right to your door. The complete meal serves two, but of course, you can order more to accommodate a larger crowd. In addition to turkey, the complete precooked Thanksgiving meal has cranberry sauce, gravy, cornbread stuffing, choice of three sides and pie.

Five Eggs will deliver a fully cooked natural turkey, or take care of the prep and bringing and let you roast it yourself.

If you’re just looking for a few precooked Thanksgiving dinner side dishes, Five Eggs has that too. You can order candied sweet potatoes, classic green bean casserole and other sides, plus pies. We are eyeing the apple pecan arugula salad. It’d be good to have something on the lighter side and the price is very reasonable at just over $2 per person for a salad serving 8.
