Inflation, rising food costs, and other tips for saving in Thanksgiving 2022

If you are hosting a Thanksgiving feast in 2022, here are some tips to keep costs low while still enjoying a festive and delicious meal:

  • Make sure to store all your Thanksgiving ingredients in sealed containers in the fridge or freezer so that they will be ready when needed.Another cost-saving tip is to make dishes with few ingredients. For example, classic turkey recipes often call for canned cranberry sauce, dried cranberries, and bread crumbs. Instead of making these things from scratch, you can buy them pre-made at the grocery store.
  • If you want to add extra flavor or texture to your Thanksgiving feast, consider using herbs and spices that are affordable but still delicious. For example, rosemary is a common herb used in European cooking but can be expensive when shopping in bulk. However, buying a small bottle of rosemary extract (or mixing it into olive oil ) can give your dish a subtle rosemary flavor that is still affordable.
  • Finally, make sure to drink plenty of fluids and eat healthy snacks throughout the day to avoid feeling bloated or tired. And if you do get full from your feast, try not to overindulge in added sugar-rich desserts or heavy treats later on.

What to cook instead of turkey this Thanksgiving?

Several hosts may decide to change the centerpiece poultry if the price of turkey per pound increases by nearly 28% from last year, according to the USDA. Remember that due to a widespread avian flu outbreak that also hit those birds, prices may not be much more cost-effective. The initial idea may be chicken, but keep it in mind.

If you don’t want to cook a turkey this year, there are plenty of other delicious options available. Some recipes that can be used as alternatives include:

  • Chicken, legs, wings are options or if you shop around and compare prices it can be cheaper to cook a chicken instead of a turkey this year. For example, in some areas using organic or free-range chickens will cost more than buying a frozen bird from the grocery store. However, by cooking your own chicken you can save even more money since canned goods like cranberry sauce and stuffing are not as expensive when made at home.
  • Taco Turkey Casserole: layers of seasoned ground beef, refried beans, cheese sauce and tortillas in a casserole dish topped with shredded lettuce and diced tomatoes.
  • Black Bean Garlic Quinoa Pilaf: flavored with garlic, black pepper and oregano, quinoa is cooked with kidney beans and tomatoes for a healthy and hearty dish.
  • Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Garlic, Lemon and Thyme: these cruciferous veggies are roasted until caramelized on the outside but still slightly crisp in the center, making them perfect for Thanksgiving stuffing or side dishes.

Whatever you decide to cook this year, make sure to enjoy yourself and celebrate with family and friends!
