Another Halloween is in the books so it’s time to start thinking about Thanksgiving and all that entails. If you’re hosting this year, that means major meal planning. But it doesn’t have to be an overwhelming undertaking. You can let the power of e-commerce do a lot of the work for you. Namely, delivering all the ingredients you’ll need, including the turkey.

If you’re thinking about ordering a turkey online for Thanksgiving, you have plenty of options, according to the New York Post. Just remember, it will cost quite a bit more than simply picking one up at the supermarket. However, with online ordering, you can avoid your oven altogether by getting a pre-cooked bird.

Below are 14 sites where you can order a high-quality frozen or pre-cooked Thanksgiving turkey, along with lots of other tasty things for your holiday feasts. I’ve ordered steaks from Allen Brothers, the first company on the list, and they were amazing. If that’s any indication, their turkeys are probably good, too.

What To Do With Those Thanksgiving Leftovers

Thanksgiving is coming, so prepare for the food onslaught! Everyone gets excited about the turkey and all the delicious food that will be eaten on Thanksgiving. And almost better than Thanksgiving dinner, are those delightful leftovers the next day (and the days after that). Sometimes, when you store Thanksgiving food properly, it really gives time for the flavors to set in.

It’s usually around day three where things go south. There is still a ton of food, but everyone is kind of “over it.” But you don’t want to waste food. Instead, try reimagining the ingredients into other delicious dishes. Here are some suggestions.

  • Savory Stuffing Waffles 

    Tasty always has excellent recipes, and this gem includes stuffing, cheese, and maple cranberry sauce.

  • Hand Pies

    With this recipe, Tasty found a way to easily transform leftovers into a handheld treat, perfect for someone who needs a free hand to shop with on Black Friday.

  • Turkey Filled Omelette

    Allrecipes has created a simple way to use up the leftover turkey the morning after Thanksgiving.

  • Stuffing Omelette

    Similar to the recipe above, Sam The Cooking Guy has an easy way to reuse Thanksgiving ingredients for an omelette. Try this one with stuffing.

  • Panini

    Sandwiches are a common day-after-Thanksgiving food idea. This version by The Hungry Winos is worth checking out.

  • Turkey Gumbo

    Another hearty leftover meal worth trying is this Turkey Gumbo that a viewer of the Rachael Ray Show submitted. They also explain how to make loaded mashed potato balls too.

  • Thanksgiving Dip

    This dip by Pop Sugar requires minimal effort, but looks delicious in the end. The dish also requires a lot of cheese, which is always a win.

  • Pumpkin Pie Shake

    No one should ever get sick of having pie as a leftover. But if you do, turn the pie into a shake. This Ziploc recommended recipe will give Starbucks a run for their money.
