Here’s a recap of our early Thanksgiving dinner with the Blue Apron Thanksgiving Feast that is perfect for friendsgiving! This post is sponsored by Blue Apron.
Blue Apron Thanksgiving Feast
Blue Apron sent me their Thanksgiving Feast to prepare and showcase for you all. It was delicious!! (And also super fun having all the Thanksgiving favs in October – a dress rehearsal!)
Like last year, many people will be doing smaller gatherings this year. Whether it’s a cozy dinner for two or a friendsgiving for up to eight, this box is great for small groups. There are 6-8 servings inside, so you can feed a small group or cook for two and have all the leftovers you always crave on Black Friday. You can also choose from Add-ons (because we all know Thanksgiving is all about the sides) and make your feast a little bigger. Sign up here for up to 14 free meals plus free shipping.
In the box you’ll find recipes and ingredients for a large turkey breast, gravy, brussels sprouts, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and an apple crumb pie. Plus a detailed plan on what to do and when.
I haven’t ever cooked an entire Thanksgiving feast myself, but I have to say following this plan took so much of the pressure off! I did all the prep earlier in the day as as directed, including making the cranberry sauce and pie, and then we cooked the rest of the meal just before dinnertime.
Dinner was complete with one of Blue Apron’s Thanksgiving wine bundles. We chose to open both a rosé and Malbec.
Dinner is served!
Everything was fabulous! The turkey was rubbed in an herbed butter before roasting and came out juicy and crispy.
I loved the Brussels most of all – they had a lemon juice, zest, and parmesan on top and were tossed with fried pepitas and rosemary. And the cranberry sauce was great!!
We took a plate to our neighbor, Sandy, who lives alone, and she raved about the unique flavors in the dishes.
Note the Toddler Was Eating Goldfish *shakes head*
He refused all turkey, but did try the cranberry sauce!
OMG the crumbs! This pie was made with sour cream, warming spices, almond flour, almonds and butter. So so delicious with vanilla ice cream on top!

Not long at all! Especially when you think about Thanksgiving standards. Maybe an hour of prep and an hour of cook?
I plan to try to recreate the Brussels sprouts dish! I think I can hopefully wing it and make it delicious. Thanks for posting the menu and prep recommendations! I always feel stressed about when to make our dishes ahead of time.
Yum I love Thanksgiving!
