some people are born to rock a kitchen—all their favorite food network shows are dvr’d, they know the best farmers’ markets in town, and they eagerly anticipate the arrival of the williams sonoma holiday catalog in their mailbox. but others? well, let’s just say they’re grateful for takeout.
whether you’re exactly not a kitchen rock star or your idea of a relaxing holiday doesn’t involve cooking for a crowd, big front door has great news: we offer full thanksgiving meals available for takeout. yep, with all the trimmings. check out these menu offerings and prepare to kick back on november 24 with no worries—and maybe even an extra glass of wine!
smoked turkey breast
we roast and smoke all our meats in-house, so all you need to do is reheat and enjoy. and while our average 5.5 lb bird will serve about 8-12 people, but if your thanksgiving party is smaller than that, then hooray leftovers! turkey sandwiches, turkey soup, turkey omelets, turkey pot pie…you get the picture.
mashed potatoes and gravy
as the gold standard of side dishes, mashed potatoes are hard to get wrong, but gravy is another matter entirely. why stress over lumps and seasoning mishaps when our sumptuous homemade gravy paired with our smooth, buttery mashed potatoes will win everyone’s seal of approval?
herb roasted red potato
we can’t imagine that anyone would take a pass on mashed potatoes, but if there’s any one food item that can be offered in multiple ways and not seem repetitive, it’s potatoes. so if you want to give your guests options, try our herb roasted red potato dish for a savory alternative to mashed.
candied bacon stuffing
everyone has their own stuffing “twist,” but come on, what goes better with bread crumbs and veggies (or anything, really) than candied bacon? the sweet-savory-smoky flavor explosion elevates our otherwise traditional stuffing to a higher plane of delicious bliss.
green beans with toasted almonds
give your loved ones a break from the traditional canned soup-based green bean casserole this year. our simple side dish featuring firm, fresh green beans accented with roasty-toasty almonds is a perfect counterpoint to richer side dishes like, ahem, candied bacon stuffing.
garlic roasted asparagus
here’s another side dish that shines in its simplicity. roasting brings out the best of most vegetables, including asparagus, and it can almost entirely transform certain flavors like garlic. don’t believe us? try eating a clove of roasted garlic sometime. even if you’d never consider eating one raw, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
citrus zest brussels sprouts
whoever started the cultural trend of demonizing brussels sprouts clearly never had them cooked properly, which means combining them with complementary flavors and textures like our citrus zest. when it comes to this poor slandered veggie, once you go gourmet, you’ll never you back.
bfd pumpkin bread
served as dessert, appetizer, or something to savor with your glass of wine while your pre-cooked meal is reheating, our pumpkin bread lives up to autumn’s “pumpkin everything” trend. it’s moist, fluffy, and has the perfect amount of spice.
brioche bread pudding
bread pudding doesn’t sound exciting on paper, but the combination of soft, fluffy brioche bread, pistachios, almonds, and dried cranberries in our rich bfd butterscotch sauce will certainly change your mind.
you really can’t go wrong with cookies, especially our assorted dozen that includes classic chocolate chip, oatmeal rum raisin, coconut macaroon, and double chocolate pistachio with salt. the only problem will be restraining yourself from munching them all before the thanksgiving meal even starts.
don’t stress this thanksgiving. let big front door help
our thanksgiving takeout menu can accommodate everything from small immediate family gatherings to huge feasts for extended family and friends. our smoked turkey breast is sold individually or as part of our per-person dinner combo and our sides are available in pans serving 8-12 or quarts in our 2-side combo. if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us. or better yet, stop in for lunch to get an idea of how tasty and stress-free we can make your holiday this year.
