So, you don’t want to spend your day off carving a turkey and making mashed potatoes from scratch? Don’t. Stay in bed and start cooking an hour before your guests are set to arrive. Here’s everything you need for the tastiest, laziest Thanksgiving dinner you can serve:

Replace your turkey with a rotisserie chicken. Make sure it’s already cooked.

Get instant mashed potatoes. Step 1. Take the mix out of the box. Step 2. Add water.

Don’t forget gravy packets. See step 1-2 above.

Try an Easy Mac hack. Put it in a casserole dish, add breadcrumbs, and put it in the oven. It’s a baked macaroni and cheese masterpiece.

Grab canned cranberry sauce. Doesn’t everyone use this? You’re not even cheating.

Serve up hassle-free stuffing. Combine croutons, water, and a sprinkle of salt.

Pick up a pre-made pumpkin pie. Don’t forget to throw away the packaging.

Use elegant disposable dinnerware. A fancy way to say paper plates.


Turn your Thanksgiving dinner into a potluck. Everyone brings the feast. You bring yourself.

Get Thanksgiving dinner delivered. No need to break your Seamless streak for the holiday.

Make a reservation at a restaurant. Within walking distance, of course. Order extra for late-night leftover snacking.

Have Thanksgiving dinner all to yourself. Why sit through hours of small talk with family when you can feast alone in your bed? Don’t worry about any gravy spills either. We’ve got you covered.
