Aldi Thanksgiving Dinner 2011


We’ve been covering stores and restaurants that offer complete pre-cooked Thanksgiving dinners.  Aldi does not offer that, but given Aldi’s low prices, we were curious how much a pulled-together Thanksgiving dinner from Aldi might cost in 2011.

Here’s what an example Thanksgiving dinner for 4-6 from Aldi might look like (prices from local ad, may vary regionally):

  • $7.99  Kirkwood Boneless Turkey Breast Roast, 3 lb, or $10.90 for whole Butterball turkey, 10 lb [note: turkey is *not* pre-cooked]
  • $0.89  Chef’s Cupboard Stuffing Mix
  • $0.99  Valley View Instant Mashed Potatoes
  • $1.49  Season’s Choice Green Beans, 16 oz
  • $3.23  Season’s Choice Sweet Potato Patties, 32 oz
  • $1.19  Chef’s Cupboard Turkey Gravy, 12 oz
  • $0.89  Sweet Harvest Cranberry Sauce, 14 oz
  • $1.69  L’oven Dinner Rolls, 12
  • $4.49  Belmont Apple Pie, 42 oz

That totals $22.85 for an Aldi Thanksgiving dinner with turkey breast or $25.76 with the Aldi Thanksgiving dinner with the whole turkey.

However, if you don’t want to deal with cooking a turkey, other stores offer complete Thanksgiving dinners with everything pre-cooked.  Those dinners cost more, but are less work - you just have to heat and serve.

Happy Thanksgiving!  (Thanks to Aldi for keeping the prices low.)
