Thanksgiving Meal Planner Template: This free printable download organizer will help keep your holiday meal planning organized!

Thanksgiving Meal Planner Printable Download for FREE

About three years ago, (I’m writing this in 2019) I had a friend reach out and say,

[I need] a planner for cooking holiday meals. Ingredients, order of cooking, something to organize 3 days of cooking. When/how/where. So you don’t go “oh crap I needed one more pie crust, and whoops I forgot to cook the hashbrown casserole.” It needs to be computer based so it can be printed.

So, I held on to that note from her and copy/pasted it in to my Trello account (because I’m kind of a crazy person like that, and love to have thought/ideas organized for when I need them) and I dug it out today when the creative bug hit me.

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I decided to put my “creative bug” to good use and finally create a Thanksgiving “schedule” template that you can download and print for your upcoming dinner!

I wanted to create (and still may at some point) a very thorough Thanksgiving schedule, with more suggestions, recipes, cooking tips, etc. but I thought I’d keep it simple for those of you who want something NOW!
(Because what I have swarming around in my head is a BIG deal, and would take a lot of time.)

2 Meal Plan Scheduler Versions

To try and accommodate those of you who tend to make the Thanksgiving staples AND who tend to stray from the traditional recipes, I’ve created two different versions of the scheduler.

Non-Traditional Thanksgiving Dishes

Our family hasn’t really had FULL traditional, Thanksgiving food in a few years (except for the roasted turkey!) so I knew there may be more out there like us, who don’t want a Thanksgiving meal planner filled with dishes that they won’t use/need so I wanted to keep things simple, flexible and straight to the point!

Our Thanksgiving dinners lately have usually included items like:
