Thanksgiving is a time for family, friends, food — and often frantic last-minute preparation. But you don't have to spend all day in the kitchen to enjoy a Thanksgiving feast in the comfort of your own home. Leave the cooking to the professionals and check out these scrumptious Thanksgiving to-go options from Austin restaurants.

Stiles Switch BBQ & Brew
From the turkey to all the extras, Stiles Switch has you covered. These barbecue masters are offering a slow-smoked boneless turkey breast with a slew of traditional sides, including mashed potatoes, cornbread stuffing and green beans. You can add more sides and a pecan pie if you have extra stomachs (or a sweet tooth) to feed.

Serves: Four to six or eight to 10
Price: $74.95-$129.95
Order by: Sunday, November 23; Pick-up only

Fresa's Chicken al Carbon
Perhaps you're craving a Thanksgiving dinner with a Mexican twist. Fresa's is offering a roasted turkey meal with chorizo cornbread stuffing, citrus-serrano cranberry sauce and more. You can order the whole meal, just the turkey, individual sides or their pozole kit for the day after — all you need is leftover turkey!

Serves: Eight to 10
Price: $180
Order by: Friday, November 21; Pick-up and delivery available

Lucy's Fried Chicken
Take your Thanksgiving to the next level with Lucy's Turducken, a turkey, duck and chicken combo with a tantalizing center of boudin. This meaty masterpiece is layered with stuffing and comes with a side of gravy. You can also order anything off of Lucy's regular menu to accompany your tasty Turducken.

Serves: Up to 18
Price: $125
Order by: Sunday, November 23; Pick-up only

Contigo
Try Contigo's spin on Thanksgiving classics and delve into a carefully crafted supper with some flair. The East Austin favorite is offering turkey and dumplings, cauliflower gratin, grilled haricot vert, a country pate and more — even fennel crackers and house-made pickles.

Serves: Four
Price: $75
Order by: Saturday, November 22; Pick-up only

Hoover's Cooking
If you want options, Hoover's has 'em. Mix and match your holiday meal from the main dish down to the desserts. You can order roasted, fried and smoked turkeys to-go along with classic sides a la carte, including eight different pies and cobblers ($24 each). Or you can order individual turkey and dressing plates for each person at your Thanksgiving celebration.

Serves: Varies
Price: Whole turkey for $58.95
Order by: Sunday, November 23; Pick-up and delivery available (within a 10-mile radius of Hoover's location on Manor Road)

Threadgill's
Looking for ham instead of turkey this year? Good thing Threadgill's is cooking up both. Customize your holiday meal by choosing from a collection of traditional Threadgill's sides and options on different pies and accompanying sauces. You can also add extra to your order, just in case you're anticipating more guests.

Serves: Eight to 10
Price: $139.95
Order by: Friday, November 21; Pick-up available at both locations

Hyde Park Bar & Grill
Frying a turkey can be difficult — and not to mention dangerous — so trust the folks at Hyde Park Bar & Grill for your main course. Hyde Park offers a delicious fried turkey to complement the side dishes you've already taken care of at home.

Serves: Five to eight
Price: $65
Order by: While supplies last; Pick-up at the South Austin location only
