Thanksgiving Meals TO GO in Kansas City: The Only Way to Go.
I always thought the day I hosted Thanksgiving dinner was the day I’d become a real, certified adult. To be honest, it’s the sole reason I registered for china when we got married. Well, spoiler alert, I still don’t qualify for my official Adult Card. Place settings, stuffing a turkey, double ovens going around the clock, real cranberries, homemade pies? Let’s face it, I’m never going to be an adult.
Of course, the downside is, if I don’t cook, I don’t have any leftovers. Wait, is that good or bad? I suppose that’s why I always have 4 servings of mashed potatoes on Thanksgiving every year so I’ll be so stuffed I won’t want them again for another year.
Regardless, if you’re looking to get your adult card the easy way (CHEATER!!!) or you want leftovers without any of the hassle, here are some places in KC offering turkey dinners to go:
10326 Stateline Rd, Leawood KS 66209
Home of the smoked turkey. This place always has a line wrapped around the parking lot the Wednesday morning before Thanksgiving, so you know it’s good.
6947 Tomahawk Road, Prairie Village, KS 66208
This isn’t your grandmother’s Thanksgiving meal (no offense, grannies). This place is packing up dishes even Martha Stewart would salivate over. Creamy butternut squash with Hazelnuts and Sage, anyone?
8301 W. 135th, OP, KS 66223
For those who think turkey is overrated, Stroud’s is taking orders for just the sides like, mac and cheese, chicken or turkey gravy, yams, corn and cranberry fruit salad. Yes, their famous mashed potatoes, too. Duh!
Turkey (or Ham), traditional sides, rolls and a Tippin’s pie to boot, starting at just $59.
Get even more bang for your buck with Hyvee’s affordable turkey, ham or prime rib Thanksgiving dinners to go. Although their 4-person meal only comes with “one small-size of mashed potatoes” which would not be something I would be willing to share with others.
For those looking for a healthier option, Sprouts has natural turkey dinner with sides like creamed Kale & Spinach for 6-8 starting at $69.99.
A little something to please everyone on this menu, including your vegan cousin Fred— like vegan pumpkin pie and Rutabaga-Potato Mash.
Ok, for the ultimate cheat, you don’t even have to leave your house because you can get your (supposedly “world’s best Willie Bird”) turkey and all the fixings delivered right to your door. I mean, even I can do that.
