Money-Saving Thanksgiving

Betty’s pulling out all the stops with an incredible Thanksgiving feast for eight that rings up at less than $40—pumpkin pie included!
By Kayla Knudson

Our Betty Crocker Kitchens experts crunched some numbers and pulled together an over-the-top feast that comes in under budget at a cool $36.74—with eight people at your table that’s just $4.59 each! How’s that for something to be thankful for this holiday season?


Oven-Roasted Turkey Breast

One smart way to cut costs (and cooking time) is forgo a whole bird in favor of roasting a turkey breast. Basted with a thyme, butter and wine sauce, this one's juicy, full of flavor and much less expensive at just $16.29.


Crunchy Onion Potato Bake

Topped with crunchy onions and layered with cheddar cheese, this crowd-pleaser makes enough to serve 14, so have seconds or expect leftovers! And at $6.59 without factoring in pre-holiday grocery store sales, it’s a bargain.


Green Bean Casserole

What’s Thanksgiving without green bean casserole? This quintessential holiday dish rings up at just $5.54—no wonder it’s a favorite! For extra savings, be sure to check our coupons page at the beginning of each month when new coupons for the likes of Green Giant green beans are added.


Classic Cranberry Sauce

Sure you could use the canned stuff, but once you see how easy and inexpensive ($4.15, less if you already have sugar on hand!) this scratch recipe is, you’ll opt for homemade. Trust us, it’s worth it!


Impossibly Easy Pumpkin Pie

That it takes just 10 minutes of prep time to make this pie isn’t the most surprising thing about it—the $4.17 price tag is. That’s an entire pie for the price of a single pumpkin spice latte at your favorite coffee shop!
