Thanksgiving will no doubt look different for many of us this year, and if your plans include staying home, you might not want to cook an entire Turkey Day spread like you would if you were hosting a crowd.
For those who want the traditional Thanksgiving dishes without the work, Cracker Barrel Old Country Store is offering a smaller version of their traditional Thanksgiving Heat n’ Serve Family Dinner, which typically feeds eight to 10 people. The new scaled-down version feeds four to six and costs $69.99.
Their dinner includes one oven-roasted turkey breast, cornbread dressing, turkey gravy, cranberry relish, choice of two country sides and sweet yeast rolls. They’re encouraging you to place orders on their website at least 24 hours in advance of your desired pick-up date, which can be any day between Nov. 21-29.
The meal can be stored in your refrigerator and baked at home. It goes from oven to table in two hours and comes with easy-to-follow heating instructions. It also comes with a $5 gift card if ordered and picked up on the Monday or Tuesday before Thanksgiving.
If you will still be having a large gathering, however, Cracker Barrel is still offering their bigger Thanksgiving Heat n’ Serve Feast as well. Like the smaller version, it can be picked up Nov. 21-29 and comes with the same offerings, just more of them, plus an entire pumpkin or pecan pie, for $139.99. You will get a $10 gift card with your order.
The restaurant will also have dine-in options for anyone not wanting to stay home for Thanksgiving. They will be offering individual Homestyle Turkey n’ Dressing or Country Fried Turkey plates from 11 a.m.–9 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day and Grandma’s Holiday Sampler, a new breakfast featuring hand-breaded country fried turkey alongside buttermilk pancakes, served all day on Thanksgiving Day.
While Thanksgiving is actually Cracker Barrel’s busiest day of the year and they have been opening their doors to guests wanting to dine in since 1969, it will look different this year.
You can now request a table via the restaurant’s online waitlist to reduce your onsite wait time, and if there is a long wait or large crowds, guests will be asked to stay in their car until they are notified via text message that their table is ready. All employees will also be required to wear face masks and Cracker Barrel is asking guests to wear face masks when not at their table.
How will you be celebrating Thanksgiving this year?
