The Best Trader Joe’s Thanksgiving Foods This Year

Trader Joe’s is our ride-or-die grocery store. They might not have the largest selection, but what they do have is, not to be too dramatic, freaking perfect. We’ve already had more than our fill of both sweet and savory pumpkin fall foods, but the chain has more in store as we get closer to the holidays. The newest products on our radar have to do with every foodie’s favorite holiday of all: Thanksgiving! From frozen side dishes and entrees that make smaller Thanksgiving meals easy as can be (and tasty too) to seasonings and desserts, these are some of the best Thanksgiving products at Trader Joe’s this year.

1. Turkey Pot Pie

Whether you’re having a small Thanksgiving and just don’t need to roast a big turkey or you’re craving Thanksgiving flavors at lunch time, you can’t go wrong with this Trader Joe’s turkey pot pie.

2. Creamed Greens

As far as green veggie side dishes go, you can’t go wrong with this blend of brussels sprouts, kale, and Parmesan cheese.

3. Brussels Sprouts Sauté Kit

If you’re craving a lighter, brighter veggie side, this Brussels sprouts sauté with hazelnuts, cheese, and a lemon garlic vinaigrette will hit the spot.

4. Sweet Potato Gratin and Broccoli & Cauliflower Gratin

The best thing about these cheesy gratins, one with sweet and regular potatoes with mushrooms, the other with broccoli and cauliflower, is that they freeze really well. Heat up in the oven, and no one will guess you didn’t make these from scratch.

This is the ultimate Trader Joe’s seasoning blend for the holidays. It’s made with onion powder, thyme, turmeric, rosemary, and sage, making it perfect for rubbing onto your turkey before roasting or adding to your famous stuffing recipe.

6. Nantucket Style Cranberry Pie

Sick of pumpkin? Try this sweet, tart, sticky and satisfying cranberry pie for a change.

7. Turkey & Stuffing En Croute

Small Thanksgiving celebrations can be a blessing in disguise. Make yours stress-free by picking up a delicious turkey and stuffing en croute from Trader Joe’s, which features moist turkey breast surrounded by savory stuffing, all wrapped up in a golden-brown puff pastry wrapper. It even comes with gravy and cranberry sauce.

8. Breaded Turkey-Less Stuffed Roast with Gravy

Vegans and vegetarians will rejoice at this savory, mouthwateringly delicious meatless Thanksgiving roast, which really does taste like turkey (and it comes with vegan gravy!).

9. Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Pecans

Sweet mashed potatoes are a staple at Thanksgiving, and we love the crunch from the candied pecans. We won’t even tell if you add some marshmallows on top.

10. Scallopini Potatoes

Another cheesy potato dish, and we’re not mad about it! Actually our perfect Thanksgiving pretty much looks like picking up this creamy four cheese potato gratin with all of the other cheesy side dishes from TJ’s and making that our entire meal.

11. Riced Cauliflower Stuffing

If you thought the cauliflower craze was over, think again. But we’re actually totally fine with it because it’s delicious and this cauliflower stuffing has all of the flavors you’d expect but without the heaviness of bread.
