About the Menu
Diestel Family Ranch Whole Turkeys & Bone-In Breasts
These all-natural, slow-growing birds are given plenty of time and space to develop naturally, resulting in a juicy, tender turkey with that signature old-fashioned flavor. Thoughtfully raised on sustainable family farms with no antibiotics.
Classic Turkey Gravy
A traditional gravy made the old-fashioned way with turkey broth, vegetables, and seasonings.
We take real cranberries then cook them simply with sugar, apples, and cinnamon.
Choose from the sides below:
FreshDirect Rye and Pumpernickel Stuffing with Kale and Mushrooms—New!
We’ve teamed up with legendary NYC bakery Orwasher’s to create this stuffing featuring their Righteous Corn Rye and Pumpernickel breads. The loaves are divided into pieces and bring a deep, delicious flavor. We toss them with lacinato kale, portobello and cremini mushrooms, parsley and sage, then add vegetable stock for moisture and a big savory flavor. The result is a hearty, sophisticated twist on a classic holiday side.
FreshDirect Caramelized Onion, Apple and Sage Stuffing—New!
This is a classic savory-sweet stuffing made just the way you know and love. We start with pieces of white bread, then mix them with caramelized onions, celery, Granny Smith apples and sage. A little bit of vegetable stock and butter are added for moisture and flavor. Your holiday feast just isn’t complete without this traditional side!
FreshDirect Farro Risotto with Asparagus, Pea and Mushroom—New!
This hearty side dish will be a new favorite at your holiday table. We start with nutty, whole grain farro, then simmer it in a deeply flavorful mix of white wine and vegetable stock until the grains are creamy. Thick slices of cremini and portobello mushrooms are stirred in along with tender pieces of asparagus, sweet peas, and fragrant herbs for a savory finish.
FreshDirect Butternut Squash Polenta—New!
Creamy, buttery, rich, delicious and oh-so very good. Our chefs took traditional cornmeal polenta and gave it a holiday-appropriate twist by adding puréed butternut squash. The orange veg brings a slight touch of sweetness to this savory dish, which is rounded out by a nice helping of Parmesan and a burst of fragrant thyme.
FreshDirect Baked Macaroni and Cheese with Parmesan Breadcrumbs
Few can resist the charms of the classic mac & cheese, but our chefs take this comfort food to a new level of decadence with a crisp parmesan bread crumb topping holding back a creamy tide of nutty gruyere cheese melted around beautiful spirals of cavatappi pasta. Trust us… you won’t have leftovers.
FreshDirect Cornbread and Sausage Stuffing
Isn’t Thanksgiving just an excuse to eat stuffing? Sure, we play along with the rest of the meal, but our hearts (and forks) are really in it for that steaming-hot bowl of starchy, savory comfort. This satisfying version of the American classic includes our favorite stuff: tender cornbread cubes, sweet sausage, richly roasted vegetables, pecans and a sprinkle of herbs.
FreshDirect Almost Perfect Mashed Potatoes
These potatoes are whipped until they’re light and fluffy, then whisked with milk and butter to make a smooth, rich side dish. Mashers go well with everything, but they’re especially delicious topped with gravy.
FreshDirect Maple-Roasted Yams with Marshmallows
You say “sweet potato,” I say “yam,” and everyone says “mmm…” We roast sweet potatoes until the flesh is tender, then blend them with our special mix of maple, brown sugar and creamy butter. We dot the top with marshmallows that’ll melt across the surface and make the kids (and maybe even the adults) squeal with delight.
FreshDirect Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Our kitchen lets the sweet potatoes do most of the sweet talking in this simple, delicious side dish. Copper-colored sweet potatoes are mashed until smooth and tender with a little maple syrup, a touch of butter and a pinch of salt.
FreshDirect Rosemary-Garlic Roasted New Potatoes
Perfectly roasted, crisp on the outside and almost creamy on the inside. Quartered red bliss potatoes are tossed with rosemary, sea salt, spices, and garlic oil, then popped in the oven, and finally sprinkled with fresh parsley.
FreshDirect Potato Gratin with Rosemary and Garlic
Tender layers of thinly sliced Yukon Golds, swimming in a rich sauce of cream, rosemary, and roasted garlic puree. The top is dusted with Parmesan cheese and baked until bubbly.
FreshDirect Herb Roasted Root Vegetables—New!
These big, tender roasted vegetables might just steal the show at your holiday feast! We start with pieces of carrots, red onion, fennel, Brussels sprouts, and butternut squash and season them with fragrant herbs and extra virgin olive oil. Then, we take care of the cooking and roast them in the oven until they’re tender-crisp and perfectly caramelized.
FreshDirect Green Beans with Roasted Garlic—New!
Green beans are a must-have at any holiday feast and this ready-to-heat side lets those green beauties shine. They’re seasoned simply with salt and pepper, then tossed with whole cloves of garlic that have been roasted until they’re soft and caramelized — that’s a win for green bean and garlic lovers alike!
FreshDirect Hot Honey Carrots—New!
We trim young baby carrots, leaving the stem base on for an elegant presentation. Then, they’re glazed with hot honey, which adds just a hint of tantalizing heat. We roast them until they’re tender but still have a satisfying bite and toss them with parsley for an herbaceous finish.
FreshDirect Vegetable Gratin—New!
This crowd-pleasing side has got it all: wholesome veggies and plenty of creamy, cheesy goodness, too! We take cauliflower rice, broccoli, and zucchini, then toss them with a generous amount of Parmesan cheese. The mixture is topped off with a thick layer of crunchy Parmesan breadcrumbs and baked until its a gorgeous golden brown.
FreshDirect Creamed Spinach
We think our delicious creamed spinach deserves a spot in the side-dish hall of heroes. Filled with lots of tasty spinach cooked down with butter, whole milk and sour cream (pure decadence, really), we top this savory side with a sprinkle of parmesan and a hint of lemon zest to really push it over the top.
FreshDirect Steamed Tuscan Kale with Garlic
The beauty of this dish is in its simplicity — just ribbons of organic Tuscan kale, perfectly sautéed garlic and onions, a little olive oil, and a pinch of salt. The result? The freshest-tasting greens you’ll ever feast upon that you didn’t prepare yourself.
FreshDirect Roasted Brussels Sprouts
Earthy, nutty Brussels sprouts are perfectly roasted (and we do mean perfectly) with olive oil, salt, and pepper in this classic, simple side. And they’re not just tasty, they’re wholesome too—these hearty little green nuggets are great for adding fiber and antioxidant vitamin C to your diet.
FreshDirect Asparagus with Parsley and Garlic Butter
Ahh, asparagus. Is there a more elegant side dish? We select medium-sized spears and give them a coating of rich garlic butter with a touch of parsley. A snap to steam to perfection, these slender, juicy spears are delicious served with nearly any entrée.
FreshDirect Sautéed Spinach with Garlic
Arguably, spinach is the most delicious of all greens, with its mild bitterness and strong mineral flavor. We sauté chopped garlic in extra virgin olive oil until it mellows, then add the dark green leaves and cook until they wilt.
