Thanksgiving is almost here! It’s one of the best times of the year, when you can give thanks and enjoy some quality time with your family and friends. It’s a shame though that anyone has to spend their whole holiday cooking instead of spending that quality time with family. If you feel like you miss out on your Thanksgiving because you are stuck in the kitchen, then we want to give you an amazing Thanksgiving meal that we will make for you at Mormon Lake Lodge.
Twelve years ago, Scott Gold, our Regional Vice President at Mormon Lake Lodge, started something that would change the way you think of Thanksgiving. It started as an idea with many hunters up here on that weekend and their families about missing them for Thanksgiving dinner. So we thought what if we cooked Thanksgiving Dinner for them? Then it became a reality! We will cook your entire Thanksgiving meal for you and your family and all you have to do is show up.
We pick your turkey based off the size of your table, and serve it with all of the traditional fixings: mashed potatoes, yams, cranberry sauce, green beans, and rolls. This is our Family Style Thanksgiving Dinner. The turkey comes out to your table and you get to carve it just like you would at home. For our Family Style Dinner you have to have at least four or more people for your table. The dinner also includes soup and salad, plus everyone at the table gets to pick the desert of their choice.
What’s the second best part of Thanksgiving besides hanging out with family and Friends? Leftovers! Take all of the food you have leftover home with you at the end of your meal. We’ll help you to pack it all up to take home with you. We know it sounds almost too good to be true, but that’s exactly why we do it! What is Thanksgiving without leftovers for turkey sandwiches?
Now if you have a picky eater joining you for Thanksgiving Dinner, we have you covered there as well. If you have someone in your family who just hates turkey, that’s okay! With our Individual Style Thanksgiving Dinner you have your choice of Prime Rib, Honey Ham, or Turkey plates. It comes with all of the fixings just like the Family Style Dinner, but your plate has the meat of your choice, and you still get soup or salad and dessert.
On Thanksgiving Day our Steakhouse will open at 11:00 am and we will close at 4:00 pm. We want to cater to everyone, including our own employees, who want to spend time with their loved ones on the holiday as well. Between those five hours, though, we will be busy cooking as many turkeys as we can with up to 30 turkeys going out! We cook all of them on our Mobile Food Service Trailer, which is the unit we have in contract with the USFS to cook on Forest Fires. Our Kitchen Staff will arrive early to make sure that everything for your Thanksgiving is cooked perfectly. We enjoy putting a smile on our customer’s faces, so join us this Thanksgiving at Mormon Lake Lodge!
