This tender turkey breast has been slow-cooked and simply seasoned with salt, pepper, citrus, and herbs. It can be heated in the oven in under 40 minutes, so your house will still be filled with the wonderful aroma of turkey without all the hassle that goes along with roasting an entire bird.

If you’re looking to keep things simple this Thanksgiving, Vicky’s Kitchen makes a stuffed turkey breast that could serve as the main dish and sides, all in one!
This turkey breast is filled with sausage and cornbread stuffing and a cranberry apple chutney glaze is included. It comes fully cooked and can be heated either in the microwave or the oven. Dinner is done!
3. Main Street Bistro Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes – $7.79
Peeling potatoes is hard, but using instant potatoes on Thanksgiving might not satisfy your craving for the real thing. These heat-and-eat potatoes are the perfect compromise and a great value. For $7.79, you’ll get two 32-ounce packages of Yukon Gold mashed potatoes – enough for leftovers, depending on the size of your gathering!

Fra’Mani Holiday Dressing is handcrafted from bread cubes, antibiotic-free pork sausage, and a mixture of poultry broth, butter, vegetables, sage, and other herbs. This 31-ounce package serves about nine people and can be heated in either the oven or the microwave.
5. Fra’Mani Turkey Gravy – $10.89
Fra’Mani Turkey Gravy is a lightly bound béchamel sauce enriched with onions, turkey broth, and turkey meat. It’s made from grain-fed, antibiotic-free turkeys and can be heated in either the microwave or the oven. This multi-pack contains two individually-sealed 24-ounce packages.
6. Vicky’s Kitchen Organic Brown Sugar Sweet Potatoes with Maple Syrup – $12.99
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. Vicky’s Kitchen has done all of that work for you, with these fully-cooked sweet potatoes. They’ve already been slow-cooked in organic brown sugar and organic maple butter till tender. All you need to do is heat them up in the microwave or oven!
7. Kirkland Signature Sweet Corn – $6.99
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!
8. Stonemill Kitchens Organic Cranberry Sauce – $8.99
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!
9. Kirkland Signature Pumpkin Pie – $7.99
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.
We recently sampled this pie and compared it with the Sam’s Club version. Read our honest review!
10. Wine – many bottles under $20!
There are so many different types of wine that pair well with Thanksgiving dinner, and Costco has a good selection of affordable bottles this year. Gérard Bertrand Cremant de Limoux Brut Rosé ($15), Pellegrini Chardonnay ($15), and Baileyana Firepeak Pinot Noir ($18) are all excellent choices.
