A Whole Thanksgiving Dinner for 35 Dollars | But Cheaper

Homemade Thanksgiving dinner can definitely get pricey, but I think we can make an entire Thanksgiving meal that serves 10-15 people for 35 dollars or less.

Binging your videos over the past month or so has reaaaally elevated my confidence in the kitchen. Also, your recipes are fucking delicious.

The whole But Better series has been a game changer for me. Reducing my cravings for fast food, saving me coinage and trimming my dad bod along the way. I'm noticing a real difference in my weight, confidence cooking, and having a lot of fun to boot. I cant thank you enough, good sir!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

MSG is not only a magic substance it contains 60% less sodium and makes a fine salt substitute. It has an unearned bad rap.

I for one appreciated a single video with info on stock, gravy, and rolls in one spot. Really helped fill in some gaps for me this year
Thanks to you, we had an amazing thanksgiving! Thank you! Whenever food gets a little boring at home we mix things up with a recipe from you! I would’ve never been able to cook this turkey without it coming out dry in my own but everyone loved it! 10/10 would recommend.

" About 15-20 people" ..... Boi how many cousins you got
Looks pretty good, although I think you could improve the gravy. You threw away all the turkey juices / flavour left in the tray, and didn't use any gravy salt.
