If beef is what you crave for a holiday dinner, grab yourself a delicious cut-fresh-in-store-daily Top Round London Broil. Serve it up alongside a traditional Green Bean Casserole and some Grissom’s Crescent Rolls, stuffed with cream cheese and cheddar cheese, and you’ve got a meal that’s sure to be remembered.


For those of you who love the idea of warm and buttery fish, pair this seasoned tilapia with rice pilaf, some roasted seasonal veggies and cornbread muffins and you might just convince your loved ones to have fish at every holiday gathering.


Calling all pork lovers! Combining center-cut pork loin chops with apples and some of our Marcum Smokey Mesquite Seasoning Rub is amazing. (Try it and you’ll see!) Take this holiday meal to the next level by combining it with rosemary red potato mash, bacon maple brussel sprouts, and fried apples and cranberries for dessert. We can assure you, you won’t have leftovers.


If turkey is still your thing, but you’re ready to spice things up in the kitchen, then check out this meal plan. Combining a turkey breast, butter, our Tipton Grove Apple Juice and some Marcum spices will give you the juiciest turkey breast you’ll have this Thanksgiving. To make your mouth water even more, add our green bean almondine and cranberry sauce dishes. With how much you save on this meal, it’s one that will go into permanent holiday rotation.


If you’re looking for a memorable vegetarian option, our Save A Lot test kitchen has you covered. Try these special recipes for pumpkin lasagna, garlic breadsticks, roasted asparagus and an easy cherry pie that’ll have you spending more time with family and less time in the kitchen. Now that’s something we can all give thanks for!
