Thanksgiving dinner made easy!

A lot of people hate cooking around Thanksgiving, and, honestly, who could blame them? Toiling behind the stove, wrestling with the turkey (which could still come out dry)-it’s a lot for one person to handle. So if you’re saddled with hosting Thanksgiving dinner and you hate cooking or have no time to stay in the kitchen, here’s a list of some local Birmingham caterers who could help you out:

Homewood Gourmet—1919 28th Avenue South, Birmingham, Alabama (205-871-1620)

The menu Hollywood Gourmet has for Thanksgiving features sage stuffing, turkey gravy made from scratch, mashed potatoes with roasted garlic and heavy cream, asiago au gratin potatoes, yeast rolls, and two types of pie-chocolate pecan and pumpkin. Chef Franklin, the owner of Homewood Gourmet, might also cook your turkey for you. Go to Homewood Gourmet for the official menu.

B&A Warehouse—1531 First Avenue South, Birmingham, Alabama (205-326-4220)

If you’re holding a Thanksgiving dinner party with coworkers or a lot of extended family, you can use the facilities at B&A Warehouse. The holiday menu consists of turkey, ham, pork loin, grilled chicken, green beans, sweet potatoes, squash, corn, pecan and pumpkin pies, a B&A Homemade Holiday Morsel Sampler Tray and more. Download the menu here. BAWarehouse

Corretti Catering—4465 Old Overton Road, Birmingham, AL (205-503-4460)

The holiday menu at Corretti Catering is huge. So huge, there’re two menus-one for hors d’oeuvres and another for entrees and deserts. Not only is there baked or fried turkey, glazed ham, cornbread dressing with giblet gravy, sweet potato soufflé, yeast rolls with whipped butter, chocolate pecan pie, gingerbread with lemon curd sauce, but there’s also New Oreleans style bread pudding with whiskey sauce, which sounds delicious. Go here to view the menus in full. Corretti Catering

Hope your Thanksgiving, as well as the rest of the holiday season, is fun and easy!
