Hey, everyone! I’m getting really excited for Thanksgiving—are you?
There are so many reasons to be excited because it’s a fantastic holiday. The food! The family! The togetherness! We have hosted for the last few years and I think we probably will again. I really love having Thanksgiving up here because it’s nice to not have to travel. I also love to attend Thanksgiving dinners elsewhere because it means less prep and cooking. That said, the work can be part of the fun! I have hacks for you. Dollar General has become our Thanksgiving destination because they have everything we need, and it’s all easy to find as well! Since this post is about Thanksgiving hacks, I’m going to share with you how to have a pretty great spread for less money and time.
You can pick up yummy canned green beans, butter, and easy instant mashed potatoes. And then make sure to get these products for my delicious recipe: Heinz Homestyle Savory Beef Gravy, Velveeta Original Loaf, and Stove Top Chicken Stuffing Mix.
Delicious, Cheesy Herb Stuffing Recipe:

1 1/2 cups water
What You Do:
1 – Cut half of the cheese into cubes; seal and refrigerate leftovers for another dish.
2 – Add butter and water to a saucepan and heat over medium high heat, and bring to a boil.
3 – Then, remove from heat and stir in stuffing mix and cheese.
4 – Cover and let stand for 3 minutes; stir until cheese is melted.
5 – Then spoon mixture into a serving dish and top with hot gravy. Serve immediately.
Let's talk about Heinz HomeStyle Savory Beef Gravy! It's so good. You can make meals your whole family will enjoy with it, as it is a smooth and robustly seasoning gravy made with real beef stock. It's great on my stuffing, of course, but you can also use it on the mashed potatoes, meatloaf, pot roasts, and so much more. You can use it any time of year to make family dinners that everyone will enjoy.
Then, we have Velveeta Original Loaf! Surely you know this one, maybe from using it to make homemade macaroni and cheese. It's made from aged natural cheddar cheese and has a mild and creamy flavor. The cheese loaf can be diced, melted, grated, or grilled, and used in a variety of family meals. Grab it at Dollar General and use it in soups, sandwiches, dips, and more!
And we also have Stove Top Chicken Stuffing Mix. It's been prepared as a classic side dish in kitchens across the world. You can make it to accompany a large meal, or eat it for a satisfying snack all by itself. I love that it cooks in just five minutes. That's how easy it is to have stuffing ready that everyone can enjoy. Talk about Thanksgiving hacks! It's made with herbs, spices, and real chicken broth. It's not just for Thanksgiving—use it as an ingredient in dishes all year round.
We are lucky in that we live near several Dollar General locations. It's so easy to shop here and find great prices on beloved brands. I am glad that I discovered you can also plan for Thanksgiving at DG by buying Thanksgiving sides and the ingredients to make my delicious stuffing. Thanksgiving can be hectic, but it can be easier with Thanksgiving hacks, such as my easy stuffing. How are you planning to celebrate this year.
