Let’s all give thanks to Costco and the blessing of a stress-free Thanksgiving dinner! 🙌🦃

If you’d like to sit down to a traditional Thanksgiving dinner without breaking a sweat in the kitchen, these Costco Thanksgiving dinner groceries will help! This year, the wholesale retailer has everything you need to put together a delicious meal, and you won’t have to spend all day in the kitchen preparing it.

We stopped by our local Costco to check out this year’s Thanksgiving dinner items, and it turns out they have pretty much all the prepared foods you would need to avoid making anything from scratch this year! From drinks to turkey to dessert and everything in between, check out some of our fave Costco Thanksgiving dinner items to grab for a ready-made Thanksgiving!

Don’t forget! Costco will be closed on Thanksgiving Day along with all these other stores as well.


Costco Full Turkey Dinner

Kirkland Turkey Dinner

This dinner package includes everything you need for a Thanksgiving dinner including a seasoned Turkey Breast, Stuffing, Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes & Gravy, Green Beans, and Cranberry Sauce. Just turn on the oven to 425 degrees, follow the directions on the packaging and your meal will be ready in under 2 hours!


Loaded Mashed Potatoes Costco

Kirkland Loaded Mashed Potatoes

Peeling potatoes is hard, and time consuming so buying these heat-and-eat potatoes are the perfect compromise and a great value.


Mashed Sweet Potatoes Costco

Kirkland Mashed Brown Sugar Sweet Potatoes

If you’ve ever prepared sweet potatoes from scratch, you know that they start out hard as a rock and take quite a bit of time to cook thoroughly. Costco has done all of that work for you, with these fully-cooked sweet potatoes. All you need to do is heat them up in the microwave or oven!


bag of frozen corn in shopping cart

Kirkland Signature Sweet Corn

In the annual Thanksgiving vegetable popularity contest, sweet corn is probably a close runner-up to sweet potatoes. Grab a 5-pound bag of Kirkland Signature’s White Sweet Corn for a simple side dish that even the kids will eat!


Stonemill Kitchens Cranberry Sauce & Jalepeno Dip

Stonemill Kitchens Organic Cranberry Sauce

If you prefer homemade cranberry sauce to the canned stuff, then Stonemill Kitchens Organic Cranberry Sauce is the next best thing. It comes in a 36-ounce container and may quite possibly be the best store-bought cranberry sauce available anywhere! Your Thanksgiving dinner isn’t complete without this Costco find!

Psst! We are also big fans of the Stonemill Kitchens Creamy Cranberry Jalapeno Dip also available at Costco – it makes the perfect appetizer or seasonal snack!


Pumpkin pies at Costco inside refrigerated case

Kirkland Signature Pumpkin Pie

Costco’s 12″ pumpkin pie weighs in at a whopping 58 ounces and it feeds up to 12 people. Not only are these pies a great value, but they’re yummy too. This dessert is very popular with Costco members every year, so don’t wait until the last minute to buy one! If you’re worried about buying your pie too early, you can always keep it frozen until the big day.

Psst!Check out how easy it is to turn this Costco Pumpkin Pie into Mini Pumpkin Pies for serving!

Kirkland Peppermint Bark

With 14 servings, this Peppermint Bark features a combination of dark chocolate, white chocolate and peppermint pieces. It is a great alternative to have on hand for non-pumpkin pie lovers.


Cranberry flavored cocktails from Costco

Wine, Mixed Drinks & Non-Alcoholic Options

There are so many different types of wine, mixed drinks and non-alcoholic beverages that pair well with Thanksgiving dinner, and Costco has a good selection of affordable options this time of year. We recently purchased a Cranberry Moscato, Spiced Cranberry Margarita and Martinelli’s Apple Cranberry Sparkling Cider. Cheers!
