What time do most Americans eat Thanksgiving dinner? I want to eat at 2 pm but my husband wants to wait till 6.
Whoever is doing the cooking decides what time to eat.
Usually around 1:00
Well usually we start cooking it at 8:00 am takes about 4-5 hours to cook another 1/2 hour to stop cooking so around 2:00 is about right.
Right after the first football game is over - around 3:30 or so.
We eat at noon, can't handle all the yummy smells and our hungry bellies:)
You can eat as soon as the turkey, dressing and trimmings are ready. If you start at 6, then you can eat at about 12!
We have the meal early in the afternoon and have seconds, thirds, and more all day.
