Pies — Opt for a fresh Whole Foods pecan pie ($11) with a flaky and buttery crust, toasted pecans, and a caramelized filling. Otherwise go with an equally pleasing frozen pie option like Marie Callender's Dutch Apple Pie ($9) or Trader Joe's Pumpkin Pie ($5).
Mashed Potatoes — Out of 12 other store-bought mashed potatoes, Bob Evans Original ($5) scored the highest in Consumer Reports and is noted for its authentic flavor, creaminess, and peppery flavor.

Turkey Gravy Mix — Consumer Reports recommends Knorr Roasted Turkey Gravy Mix ($2) for its rich, turkey flavor and homemade taste.
Stuffing — Consumers agree that in terms of flavor, nutritional value, and cost, Stove Top makes great instant stuffing mixes, whether you prefer Turkey Stuffing ($2) or Cornbread Stuffing ($2).
Cranberry Sauce — Ocean Spray is the king of cranberry products, so safely go for their jellied cranberry sauce ($2) or whole-berry cranberry sauce ($2).
Here are a few supermarkets open on Thanksgiving:
