Men Stepping Up to Help Cook Thanksgiving Dinner


When I was a kid, things were different in my house than in the homes of most of my friends. My grandparents always made Thanksgiving dinner and my grandpa always helped cook. That wasn’t the case for my friends- their moms were the ones who did the cooking while their dads watched football.

It looks like the mindset that the woman is the Thanksgiving cook has changed. A lot. My husband does much of the cooking and cleaning in our house, including helping to prepare the major meals and he’s not the only guy stepping up.

Butterball asked a bunch of people how involved men get in helping to cook Thanksgiving dinner and found that more and more men can be found in the kitchen alongside women while getting ready for the Thanksgiving Day meal.

One-in-four men claim to help out more in the kitchen now than they did a few years ago and almost half of men say they actually play a big role in either getting the turkey ready or cooking it.

So obviously, the days of guys just chilling out on the couch watching football and waiting for the food to be served are long gone.
