5 Holiday Dinner Takeout Options

Boston Market
When turkey, mashed potatoes, green beans and corn are menu staples on a normal day, it's not exactly mind-blowing when Boston Market rolls them out for the holidays as well.

The 480-restaurant chain offers a la carte options such as eight-pound spiral hams, three-pound turkey breasts and 11-pound whole turkeys, appetizers, pies and sides, but it also dishes out heat-and-serve dinner combos for as many as a dozen people and catered buffets of turkey, ham or beef brisket from $9 to $14 per person. The chain boasts that the $90 price of its ready-made turkey dinner for 12 with a whole turkey, spinach artichoke dip with crackers, mashed potatoes, vegetable stuffing, cranberry relish, gravy, dinner rolls, apple pie and pumpkin pie came in well below the $117 price tag off all of those items bought individually at Publix back in October, but the $9.73-per-person price of the supermarket spread comes in higher than the majority of Boston Market's heat-and-eat options.

The chain's most expensive spiral ham spread for 12 with an eight-pound ham, spinach artichoke dip appetizer, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, cinnamon apples, gravy, dinner rolls and apple and pumpkin pies is $100, but comes out to $8.33 per person. The meal still needs about two hours or so to heat everything, but the time saved on prep work may be worth that $8.33 a head to a harried host.
