Kroger Tender & Juicy Whole Frozen Young Turkey
Well, come on. It's simply not Thanksgiving without the turkey! By opting for a frozen bird, you can prepare it however you'd like, which is half the fun of Thanksgiving. Kroger offers multiple sizes, but this larger one is a great choice for feeding a large crowd.
Simple Truth Organic Sweet Potato Dices
Whether you're popping these in the oven to roast or mashing them up and topping them with marshmallows, buying diced sweet potatoes will save you valuable time in the kitchen.
Home Chef Cornbread Stuffing
Kroger's selection of prepared foods makes it easy to enjoy a delicious meal without sweating it out in the kitchen all day. All of the Home Chef sides—including this cornbread stuffing—ring up at just $7.
Halved Brussels Sprouts
If you have the option to save some time, why not take it? We love the idea of buying Brussels sprouts already halved. Simply spread these out on a sheet tray, season, roast, and done!
Unsalted Butter Sticks
For all of your cooking and baking needs, you'll need to stock your fridge with high-quality, affordable butter. Many chefs agree that the unsalted variety makes it easier to control the flavor in your recipes, especially when you're baking.
Sweet Corn Cobs
Corn is pretty much foolproof to cook because its flavor is perfect on its own. With just a little butter, it makes a sweet addition to any Thanksgiving menu without being too filling.
Turkey-Flavored Gravy Mix
Instantly add flavor to your homemade turkey with this inexpensive gravy packet. It's the perfect cheat if you're not sure how to season the meal's main event.
Ocean Spray Jellied Cranberry Sauce
Though many are divided in the war between homemade cranberry sauce versus canned, it would behoove you to have some of this stuff for the canned fans at your table. After all, you want all of your guests to be happy!
Biscuits are always a fan-favorite on the Thanksgiving table. And when they're priced at just $2.29, you can grab several rolls of Kroger buttermilk biscuits without breaking the bank. That way, everyone can have plenty to scoop up all of that delicious gravy.
Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese
Whether you're sprinkling this on top of baked potatoes or making a creamy macaroni and cheese dish, shredded cheddar will almost certainly make its way into your meal. Plus, pre-shredded means it'll melt more easily and evenly.
Getting some greens on the table will make for a balanced meal. (Of course, if you decide to throw these green beans in a casserole with fried onions, we won't tell.)
It's always nice to have more than one meat option, and Kroger's boneless ham is sure to please. (After all, why wait until Christmas?) This ham comes already prepared, so all you'll have to do is heat and enjoy it.
La Terra Fina Spinach, Artichoke, & Parmesan Dip & Spread
Keep your guests from getting antsy while you put the finishing touches on the big meal with this spinach and artichoke dip. It'll whet their palate without filling them up.

Dole Premium Romaine Salad Mix
Salad on Thanksgiving? Someone will appreciate this hearty mix of romaine, leaf lettuce, carrots, and red cabbage in the sea of carbs. Dress it simply with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, or opt for a seasonal dressing.
White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies
Fresh from the Kroger bakery department, these cookies are as gourmet as it gets. We think it's great to have smaller dessert options for those who may just want a nibble as opposed to an entire piece of cake or pie.
Kroger Sweet & Delicious Apple Cider
For the non-alcohol drinkers, consider a seasonal beverage like apple cider. It can be poured over ice or heated on the stove. Bonus: It'll make your entire house smell like an orchard.
Whether you're planning a pie, loaf, or pancakes, having canned pumpkin in your pantry is a must around Thanksgiving. This stuff flies off the shelves at just over $1 per can, and you'll want some of them to fly right into your cart.
French's Original Crispy Fried Onions
Fried onions are a Thanksgiving classic! French's fried onions add a little flair to everything from green bean casserole to mashed potatoes. We challenge you to see how many dishes you can top with them this year.
Bakery Fresh Goodness Cornbread Squares
Nothing says "Thanksgiving" like warm cornbread with a buttery spread. At just $3.99, this variety from Kroger's bakery department will crisp up nicely in the oven just in time for dinner.
