Some people prefer to buy a fresh turkey from a local farm or butcher, while others opt for a frozen turkey from the grocery store. Some people have a specific brand of turkey that they always buy, while others simply choose the cheapest option or the turkey that is on sale.
No matter what brand of turkey you choose, the most important thing is to cook it properly so that it is safe to eat and delicious.
All natural turkey without all the prep and cook time. Hand-packed turkey into a recipe ready can makes your recipes convenient. Our turkey has only two ingredients: turkey and sea salt. Perfect for quick meals like enchiladas, chili and more!.
5 star for OUTSTANDING product Quality. 1 star for Walmart packaging! Terrible job. No one is supervising the packaging process! POSITIVES: GREAT Chicken! Tasty out of the can, mixed in sandwich salads and last minute casseroles! Cheapest price always found on Walmart! NEGATIVES: Its the same story over and over regarding this chicken.
When you order the chicken, figure at least 3 or 4 out of a 12 pack ordered, will be badly dented. The box arrives half destroyed because there in no intelligent cushioning to prevent the cans from slamming around in the oversized box.
This is routine. I’m always left with a stack of cans that are damaged too badly to be considered shelf life stable. POSITIVES: Even if only 6 of the 12 cans arrive satisfactorily the price per can is still cheaper than other suppliers.
Plan on a cost of $13. 00/can aggregate. NEGATIVES: All 12 of my cans arrived with some damage. Here is a picture of the 4 which I cannot consider useable for long term storage due to can seam damage.
This is a constant complaint from Walmart customers. Apparently Walmart doesn’t read reviews – BUT YOU SHOULD! You know, I get hundreds of packages from Walmart – and this is the ONLY product they cannot figure out how to pack – and my only complaint regarding packaging.
Decided to give this brand a try a while back after watching their fascinating “how it’s made” video. Well. This really is a great tasting chicken. Not spiced up – just a great natural taste. We used it in a lunch chicken salad and then in a pasta dinner dish.
VERY SATISFIED!. Sadly the packing/shipping was hit or miss. Ordered many cans this year that were well packed and secured. But unfortunately some of the cans were delivered deeply dented way beyond USDA food safety standards.
Couldn’t tell if the dented-can damage was pre-existing off the shelf or happened because cans were tossed into their shipping boxes with little cushioning and then slammed around during transport. Whatever the cause it was VERY frustrating.
And especially if you’re prepping, deeply dented cans are never acceptable for long term storage. Luckily Walmart helped make it right EVERY time. Thanks Walmart! and thanks Keystone for a delicious cooked chicken product! Will DEFINITELY order again.
Five stars for the product, but nearly 0 stars (if that were possible) for shipping issues. Though I suppose it should get a bonus 3 stars just for shipping out here at all! This chicken has been a lifesaver for us out here in the middle of nowhere.
That is, when the cans do not come dented like they were “Hulk-Smashed”. Sometimes it appears the packer has taken the time to wrap them and package them thoughtfully, but we’ve had to return them for exchanges (or refunds when sold out) across all the Keystone meat products we’ve ordered.
That being said, out of the dozens upon dozens upon dozens (I really have lost track) of cans we’ve ordered, were not crazy dented (or dented at all), and went to use, only one had an issue with the actual product (and that was taken care of promptly by Walmart).
You can use this chicken for so many things. Roast it back up in its juices. Fry up in a pan. Make chicken salad. Crisp it up and put on salad. Meat pies. Top a salad. Whatever! Great to have around.
(Really, depending on how you prepare it, it does NOT taste like chicken from a can. Generally we tend to forget. ).

Safe Handling Instructions: This product was prepared from inspected and passed meat and/or poultry. Some food products may contain bacteria that could cause illness if the product is mishandled or cooked improperly. For your protection, follow these safe handling instructions. Keep refrigerated or frozen. Thaw in refrigerator or microwave. Keep raw meat and poultry separate from other foods. Wash working surfaces (including cutting boards), utensils, and hands after touching raw meat or poultry. Cook thoroughly. Keep hot foods hot. Refrigerate leftovers immediately or discard. The Safe Way to Cook Your Turkey: Completely cook your turkey breast until well-done and reaches a uniform, internal temperature of 165 degrees F. Always use a meat thermometer inserted into the center of the turkey breast. 1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Remove frozen turkey breast from outer package only. Do not remove from cooking bag. Note: Do not increase oven temperature, cooking bag may melt at higher temperatures. 2. Place in a roasting pan with at least 2 inches high sides. Cut three 1/2 inch slits in top of bag. 3. Place pan in oven, allowing room for bag to expand without touching oven racks or walls. Always check doneness with a meat thermometer, inserted into the thickest part of the breast. Start checking temperature after 2 hours. Remove from oven when internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F. Based on natural variations in breast size, it may take up to 3 hours to cook. Note: Meat temperature increases rapidly during last hour of cooking. 4. Let turkey breast rest 10 minutes, cut open top of oven bag. Be cautious of hot steam and juices. Prepare gravy as directed on pouch. Additional Cooking Tips: If turkey sticks to oven bag, gently loosen bag from turkey before opening oven bag. For best results, prepare turkey in a conventional oven. Oven temperatures may vary, adjust cooking times accordingly. Do not grill, microwave or prepare in electric roaster. Caution: Metal clip which seals bag will be hot after removal from oven. Slow Cooker Instructions: Add 1 cup water to the bottom of slow cooker. Place turkey breast in the slow cooker. Cut three 1/2 inch slits in the top of the cooking bag. Cook for approximately 4 hours with the slow cooker on high setting. Always cook to 165 degrees F. Keep frozen.
For 22 Thanksgiving years, I’ve bought a whole turkey and roasted/baked/fried it, and every year my family only ate the breast. This year I decided to try something different (and less wasteful). After a little research, I landed on these turkey breasts.
They’re just under 3 pounds, and around $10 (one breast per bag). They were exactly what I wanted, but I was nervous that they were frozen and came in a baking bag. I didn’t know how they would taste or what kind of seasoning was in there, but I brought them home and I stuck them in the oven with high hopes.
LISTEN! These turkey breasts came out so good that I will literally never ever buy a whole turkey again! Perfectly seasoned, moist, and OMG delicious!! I don’t know what kind of magic happened in that bag, but I felt like a kitchen wizard! Everyone said it was the best turkey they had ever had! I HIGHLY recommend!.
This turkey breast is so easy and tasty, anyone can make it! Its truly no fail!! You throw it in the oven, in the bag after cutting a few slits in it, wait a few hours and you have perfectly seasoned, cooked turkey! Its already precooked, so you’re basically warming it up.
It really comes in handy when you have a night where you want a holidaymeal without the huge turkey to prep!.
Instead of a whole turkey I buy this for Thanksgiving. Very easy to make. You put it frozen in the oven. With it being small and boneless it doesn’t take that long to cook. It’s also great for sandwiches.
Wish it was a little bit bigger. I usually pay $9. 99 for it.
No artificial flavors. Gluten Free. From our family to yours since 1958. Fresh new look. Same great taste. No by-products. No added hormones (Federal regulations prohibit the use of hormones in poultry).
What some versatile thin-sliced sandwich ham!!!! Man, I use this with all kinds of things! Naturally a ham-and-cheese sandwich comes to mind. But, step this up to a round piece of flatbread with a little mayo and spicy-mustard smeared in the middle, five or six slices of the LOF ham spread across the middle of the flatbread on top of the spreads, add some slices of some rurnt cheese (you know, some of that wangy stuff!) now, take some of tomato (you can slice up a regular tomato or even some of those little cherry ones) and spread them over the top of the ham and cheese.
If you have some lettuce or spinach (I personally prefer spinach) lay it across the top, too. Now, roll this all up, pin it together with a couple of toothpicks, and pop it in the microwave for a minute or so.
OOOHHHH-WEEEEEE. TASTY!!!!!!! Or, for doctoring up a store-bought frozen pizza!!! Simply take a few stacked up slices of the Land O’Frost ham and slice’em and dice’em!!! Sprinkle these over a cheap pizza (add some more cheese, and whatever else you like!).
the ham adds a whole new depth to the pizza. Use your imagination. the sky’s the limit!!!! And, of course, SLIDERS!!!!! Good ol’ ham-and-cheese Hawaiian rolls, sliders with poppy seeds and butter!!!!! MAN OH MAN!!! And, LOF delivers again for the win!!!!!!!!!!!! An incredible product that will never cease to amaze you with its versatility.
Trust me. I would not lead you wrong!!! (Unless, it’s how to get out of the swamp where all the sloughs caused us just a *wee* problem late one evening. that ran into late one night. which ended the next morning.
good thing we ate some LOF ham before leaving the house that morning. it saved our lives!!!! Really!!!!.
We didn’t open it til the next day. It was very rubbery and hard to chew. Didn’t taste very good either. Gave a piece to my food crazy cat. He refused to eat it too. Also, it wasn’t expired. We checked the date on the package.
is at a really good price at. A pound of chicken breast is usually under $4. It isn’t del meat but it does make delicious sandwiches. I no longer eat bread so I usually wrap the chicken breast around and eat it that way.
It usually doesn’t last very long in my house, lol! #LandOFrost #ChickenBreast #Influenster #voxbox #contest.
Oven roasted turkey breast browned with caramel color. No artificial flavors. Est. 1934. No artificial preservatives (See back panel for ingredients used to preserve quality). No nitrates or nitrites added (Except for those naturally occurring in the celery juice powder and sea salt).
I typically purchase the Mega Pack, (2 -11 OZ packages ) but do not see the product, so I have this question: Why do you make the product round when you put it into a smaller sized plastic packaging wrapper which causes the meat to be rolled over on itself to fit into the plastic packaging to fit into the rectangular plastic container ? Also, because of the ultra thin slices, the material tears when trying to separate it.
Would it not be more beneficial from a cost perspective to make the material oval, I understand you may need new molds so that the material will fit both the container and the bread slice, and also cut the slice just a smidge thicker, which would save cutting time per package, power consumption, and improve the utilization of the material into the packaging containers, while performing the work more quickly? It would also allow you to sell heavier containers and make your total packaging expense cheaper per pound and improving your bottom line as you sell more meat per package ?.
I have been eating this ulta thin ham from Hilshire farms for years. I enjoy that the slices are nice and thin, so you don’t feel like you’re eating a slab of ham like on Easter. I also enjoy that it comes nice and moist in the package.
It’s never dry. Also the tuperware style container really keeps the ham contained and no smell leaks out in the fridge from it. I don’t re-use the container, however I’m sure you also could use it a few more times after washing it.
I use this to make sandwiches, ham and cheese roll up snacks, etc. I havn’t bought ham from the deli counter ever since I switched over to this.
this sausage, as well as many of your other meat products, has taken a big step down in the quality of the meat. i used to buy quite often and decided to get some last week, i was surprised. your co used to fill sausage with real meat.
meat that you could slice and eat that actually was firm and tasted like, well,,, meat. not mush. it looks and actually feels in your mouth like liver sausage. it is really awful. last month i made the mistake(i thought) of buying an off brand of beef smoked sausage and it was “mush filled.
” i threw it out then like i said last week bought yours. surprise surprise, it looks and tastes the same as the cheap one. quit saving the mush you sweep off the floor and that extra few pennies you think your going to make by selling trash.
ill tell you a lesson i learned a long time ago its called “the economy of quality” if you live by that rule people will beat a path to your door and profit will come easily, if not “all is lost” if i find that you all have improved your products i will try them again, until then i am an x customer.

This turkey is so good. Slightly sweet, slightly smoky, and always so savory and satisfying. Goes great on a grilled sandwich with melty cheese, layered with other meats for a sub or on its own for snacking!.

I buy and eat this turkey weekly. It’s fresh and tasty, low calorie and low fat, high protein. If I could change something, it would be the packaging-the turkey is difficult to get out of the package for the 2 slice serving size and pieces are often torn when trying to take out-not much room to fit hand in to remove the slices.
Another issue related to packaging is that 2 slices is considered 1 serving, yet 7 slices are provided, leaving 1/2 serving left. Please provide 8 or 10 slices per package to allow for full servings.
This turkey really does need to be eaten within 3-4 days MAX of opening the package-likely the trade off of no preservatives so do be sure to eat it right away.
This is by far the best turkey lunch meat I have ever had, is it pricey, yes, but totally worth it. This is the freshest tasting turkey, it’s so moist that it can fall apart when trying to remove it by the slice so it’s easier just to take everything out of the pack, the taste is nothing but fresh clean white meat turkey, zero slime or weird chewy bits.
There is about 7 slices total, I was able to get about 3 good sandwiches out of it.
This has the least sodium of any deli meat I’ve seen so far. This is awesome for anyone on dash diet that still would like a good old fashioned sandwich! I’m not sure why people think it tastes odd. I have never had that issue, maybe they are all too used to overly salty deli meats? Not sure.

This turkey lunchmeat tasted so gooey and slimy to me that I had to basically nuke it in the microwave in order to make it more palatable to my taste buds! And it wasn’t because it was going bad￼! ￼ it’s just naturally that way! ￼.
I have been buying this religiously for the last 6 months or so. It is some of the best turkey lunch meat that I have had and you cannot beat the price. This is the EXACT same thing that comes in the plastic container, so save your money and get this “bagged” version instead.
Organic valley’s tender and juicy whole young turkey is a healthy and delicious choice for special occasions or everyday meals. Turkey is a lean white meat that’s low in fat and high in flavor. If there are any leftovers, they won’t be around for long! Our organic turkeys are healthy and strong because they live on fresh air, sunshine, and certified organic feed that’s free of synthetic pesticides and antibiotics.
After searching in my region for an organic turkey, I took to Google for an answer and found Organic Prairie. What a delight! I was skeptical and nervous about delivery and product safety. NOT a problem! The box arrived promptly.
The turkey was frozen SOLID (took 4 days in refrigerator to defrost) The packaging was brilliant and the intructions on safe handling were precise. As a butcher’s daughter, fussy about a lot of things.
In spatchcocking, this bird was beautifully cleaned and plucked!. It cooked perfectly, came out juicy, tender and golden! Thank you Organic Prairie! You have a new fan.
My husband and I have purchased Organic Prairie and Organic Valley products since 2010! We have never been disappointed with the flavor and texture of the beef, chicken, and turkey products. All of the meat products are ALWAYS succulent, savory, and delicious! Why? Because the meat is clean! No growth hormones, antibiotics, or GMO’s!!! Thank you, Organic Valley & Organic Prairie!.
I was so happy to find whole frozen turkeys without a bunch of preservatives. I actually cooked this for my dogs, who have developed a chicken allergy, but my husband and I stole most of the dark meat for ourselves.
I cooked it with zero prep or seasoning (and it was still partially frozen!), but it turned out amazing and super flavorful. I can’t imagine how good it would be if I cooked it with the energy we typically put into our holiday turkeys.
This is great to be able to order organic turkey online. It was delivered quicker than I expected and packaged so well it sat outside all day on a fairly warm day and was frozen solid when I opened it.
I would say the roasting directions were too vague. I had guess based on recipes I found online. I ended up breading it first with a mixture of crushed brazil nuts and chickpea breadcrumbs. It was totally delicious.
I brined it overnight and that helped it stay moist.
A heritage turkey is the perfect choice for a truly traditional holiday. Our heritage turkeys are raised free-range on small farms, where they are allowed to grow slowly, developing more flavor than the average bird.
These original Narragansett and Bourbon Red breeds – not hybrids – don’t get as large as conventional birds, but make up for it with heavy breasts, dark, rich meat, and authentic turkey flavor. Air-chilled and hand-processed, these heritage turkeys offer extra crispy skin when roasted for a truly show-stopping centerpiece to your meal.
This turkey was perfection! I’m an experienced cook, but haven’t cooked a turkey in many years. I literally didn’t have to do ANYTHING special to make this turkey delicious. I didn’t brine it. I took it out of the plastic, removed the plastic ring around the legs.
I added salt, a high quality dried poultry seasoning, fresh rosemary, butter, and a lemon cut in half, to the cavity. I salted and used poultry seasoning on the outside. I put butter in all of the crevices and rubbed some of that on the outside too.
I then trussed it up. I read that using an old fashioned enameled roasting pan was best, and for sure, I found that it was. I made a foil ribbon for the bottom of the pan that cushioned the turkey. I cooked 2/3 time with lid on and the remainder, lid off.
I didn’t baste it or add anything else. We had a 12lb turkey for four people. It was the right amount for us for Thanksgiving and for leftover turkey soup. It was literally perfect! It did not taste wild (which would have been fine with me too).
It tasted like turkey – but “turk-ier. ” It was tender and juicy. I will surely buy again.
We considered ouselves connoisseurs when it came to fresh turkeys. We have been brining fresh turkeys for special occasions for years, and brining wild turkeys for the past 3-4years. This Thanksgiving we decided to try a Heritage Turkey from D’artagnan.
We were a little disappointed when it arrived as it was smallish at 10. 4 pounds. However, our disappointment vanished when we tasted the finished product. We brined the turkey in apple juice and maple syrup and smoked it over apple and maple wood.
The flavor was outstanding with both the white and dark meat very moist and the flavors very rich and intense. We now prefer the taste of the Heritage Turkey to that of a wild turkey. It is said that “A luxury once tasted, becomes a necessity”.
Such is the case with the Heritage Turkey. We now have a new family tradition.
Well, I messed up this year and ordered this bird instead of a wild turkey. Though, I think the wild was not available, and I assumed this was the wild bird. whatever. This just does not compare to the wild turkey.
It is decent, don’t get me wrong, but for me, I prefer the wild. This, however, has massive amounts of meat. I was rather shocked at the price, and I’m kicking myself for not screwing up with the organic one instead 😀 So, most people would be pleased with this bird.
It fried well and had a nice amount of meat. Delivery was disgraceful, and I was not pleased with my response after spending so much money.
Member’s Mark Oven Roasted Turkey Breast tastes terrific on sandwiches, salads, casseroles and more. This delicious sliced turkey is made from whole turkey breast and contains no artificial flavors or colors.
It’s also made without nitrites or nitrates and is 98% fat free. The sliced turkey is packaged in a new resealable container for easy storage and food prep. There are 10 servings per 22-ounce container.
I have bought this turkey from here well over 2 years and it is great, but the recent removal of the hard cover top and its soft (non)resealable top has lead to me throwing away one third of meat due to spoilage in less than 1 week because the seal puckers and is nowhere near airtight.
I’m being forced to abandon its purchase since it’s pointless to be forced to remove meat from the container to place it in something airtight.
The turkey breast has a nice fresh flavor. The one annoying factor is that sometimes it’s wet. It would be nice if they could come up with something to absorb the excess moisture that leeches off of this.
I have found this with other stores too- this is not store specific.
I was a frequent buyer of this product for my business (a case/week) and in the last few weeks the product has changed, and not for the better. It is FAR lower quality than before, in flavor and texture (yet the price has remained the same).
It is also sweet-though labeled “oven roasted”. It sticks to my grill leaving a terrible mess where the turkey from a few weeks ago left no sticky residue. Do NOT pay this price for a low end compressed loaf turkey product.
We just had our second Thanksgiving in a row featuring the Heritage Black Turkey. Both times, the turkey was incredibly juicy and flavorful on both the white and dark meats. The family agreed it is the best turkey we have had.
So, we will also have the Heritage Black Turkey for this Christmas!!! We have been long-time Allen Brothers costumers—love the service and commitment to quality product! Dave S.
This was my second time purchasing the Heritage Black Turkey. It is the best tasting turkey i have had. The texture is a little different from your broad breasted supermarket turkey, but it is moist and tender and full of flavor.
Roasted using the slow overnight method. It was perfect. I suggest you try it.
The Turkey itself came out well but was a bit surprised (Thanksgiving morning no less) the bird still had its feathers and we had to pluck it. I’m not sure if this was supposed to be this way. I contacted the shipper a week after the holiday but never received a response.
Unfortunately I will not be ordering this again as it was too much work to pluck and not really a fun thing to do either.

I love this product! Ingredients are simple and the end game is that it tastes great! Your company has hired the best customer relations people that I have encountered in a long time. Polite, patient, understanding, and knowledgeable The gentleman that assisted me with my initial order was so helpful.
He was brought up in the “South” and it shines through. Manners and great customer service, these are the qualities that a business needs to make sure that their employees exhibit.
This was excellent for a frozen entree. I usually buy a lower calorie “diet” frozen turkey entree. Not that those are bad ( they are pretty good). I decided to take a chance on a non- diet meal. This was not only within my calorie allowance for myself, but was so delicious.
I will definitely buy again! Thanks Nestle Stouffer’s and Walmart !!!.
Some of the stuffing is soggy while some of it holds it’s shape. Good flavor. Has a bit too much celery and mashed potatoes though. More turkey, stuffing and gravy. Sometimes the mashed potatoes vary in being seasoned or just tasting like cream.
I am so excited to see their bigger tastier menu. The He choices are great. My biggest decision is. Which one first? Second?Stouffers Has Been Around for a long time. Thats due due to Quality Meats Vegetables etc.
Also which to me is is one of most importance. That is CONSISTENTLY !!!Very very few food places or groceries tend not to do that. Which I feel they should.
Our wild turkeys are the real deal, descended from the same breed that has long roamed the American woodlands. Raised in upstate New York in nearly wild conditions, these turkeys forage on native grasses, insects, seeds, and grains, supplemented by alfalfa, hay, and barley.
Since wild turkeys rarely grow over 10 pounds they are ideal for smaller gatherings. These unimproved, wild breed turkeys offer less breast meat than their domesticated cousins, but make up for it with lean, dark, flavorful meat that is ideal for game aficionados.
This is not your ordinary bird! Note: Because our wild birds are hand-processed, you may find small pinfeathers in the flesh. They are easy to remove with needle-nose pliers, tweezers, or your fingers.
Ok, so I scheduled the fresh bird to arrive on the 24th which it did nice and fresh with cold packs still frozen. I Spatchcocked the bird that evening and removed the drumsticks. I took solidified duck fat and let it come to just room temp and mixed Cajun seasoning in.
I massaged the seasoned duck fat under and on top of the skin and let the bird rest in the fridge until Thanksgiving day. I also seasoned the Drumsticks with the same seasoning and the next day gave them a 8 hour bath in my Sous Vide with fresh herbs, peppers and garlic cloves and a small amount of unsalted butter.
On Thanksgiving I roasted the bird in a 375 degree oven on a bed of sliced and rough cut carrots, acorn squash, onions, plenty of garlic, yukon gold potatoes and celery. and two bouquet garni of Rosemary, Sage, Thyme and fresh bay leaf.
I also tossed in a few juniper berries. Because wild birds are much leaner than lazy farm raised birds, for added moisture, I draped the bird with nitrate free uncured bacon and the outer skins of the onions I had used.
I had previously made a quick stock out of the back bone and vegetable trimmings, and I mixed that with white wine and poured that into the bottom of an open French roasting pan. The chopped vegetables did double duty as the rack to hold the bird off the bottom of the pan and later mashed with Bourbon and real pure maple syrup added as a side dish.
I cooked the bird for an hour and basted it with the pan stock every 15-20 minutes. The bird was done in one hour. I pan seared the Sous Vide legs and partially re-assembled the bird for presentation.
I split the fat off the pan stock and reduced it and added a touch more Bourbon and made a great gravy. The bird came out moist and tender but unlike domestic turkey it had the chew of a really good quality pieces of red meat or lean pork.
Even the leg tendons were not much trouble. We never got Turkey Fatigue that week!.
Delicious! My wild turkey arrived fresh two days before Thanksgiving, weighing about 8. 5 lbs. I wet-brined it for about 13 hours , kept it uncovered afterwards in the refrigerator to let the skin dry out, smeared butter over it, and stuffed it with aromatics (pieces of apples, orange, and onion, and fresh herbs).
I roasted it for 3 hours in the oven at 325F (tented for the first 1. 5 hours), and it turned out golden on the outside and perfectly moist and tender on the inside. Because I wet-brined it beforehand, I didn’t have to baste it or add extra salt.
Some people say wild turkey has a “gamey,” taste, but to me, it has a concentrated turkey taste – about twice as flavorful as a frozen supermarket turkey! When you carve a wild turkey like this, be prepared to cut through the tough, almost cartilage-like skin, but the meat inside is heavenly! The meat is lean, but there is enough fat and drippings to make a delicious gravy.
This 8. 5 lb bird was enough for 4 people with some left over, I made a most rich and flavorful stock from the carcass and giblets!.
This was my first attempt a cooking a wild turkey and it was a total success so it won’t be my last. If you take the effort and follow a planned approach anyone could have the same results that I had.
I made a brine mix consisting of 2 gallons of water, 2 cups brown sugar, 11/2 cups kosher salt, 11/2 cups soy sauce, 1 tbsp. garlic powder, 1 tbsp. black pepper, 1 tbsp. Tony Chanceries creole seasoning.
Combine ingrediants and cook to a boil then adding ice to cool. Place turkey in a cooler then add brine to cover bird placing a bag of ice to hold the turkey below brine leval. I brined for about 20 hours never letting the brine reach higher than 40 degrees which is a must.
Keep it plenty cool so you won’t have any problems. Peheat oven to 350 degrees and place turkey in a baking tray with rack to support bird. I cut and placed green apples in to the turkey caviy then covered the bird with thick cut bacon strips in its entirerty.
Polish bacon is cut thick and its perfect for this application. Place small potatoes, carrots, onions and cut apples arround base. Place turkey in oven for approximately 2 hrs which is only a guide you must use a thermometer and remove the turkey when it reads 165 degrees to avoid over cooking and having a dry bird.
Use the drippings in the pan to make a wonderful gravy. When you remove the turkey from the oven let it rest for 15 minutes or so before cutting. I did all the above and the turkey was awesome with no dryness or gamey taste.

Reviews From Real Customers
I was glad to see this product available at my local Target. It has simpler ingredients, but unfortunately it’s completely over salted. I love salt and cured meats, but not impressed since this product is single note (only flavor was salt).
This turkey pretty much blew my head off. I’m typically not sensitive to reading the nutrition label on a product like this. I do look at ingredients and trust a product based on them especially when it seems to be a niche item geared towards individuals looking for “healthy-ish” and quality.
8 ounce package “serves 4”, but in reality even on a fairly small thin slice wheat bread 1/3-1/2 package is a more realistic serving. 2 oz meat rings in at 510 mg sodium and 4 oz (1/2 package) 1020 mg!!!! I won’t purchase this again.
Other brands have similar sodium or much lower content but more flavor as opposed to leaning totally on salt to make it tasty.
Oscar Meyer Natural Turkey is absolutely delicious. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice packaged deli meat. The preservatives used are natural ones (sea salt, celery juice) and no antibiotics were used on the turkey.
I’m trying to cut down on additives in my food so I really appreciate what Oscar Meyer’s done with this turkey. It’s thinly sliced and easy to portion out for lunches or as a quick bite. It’s flavorful without being too salty.
The price is appropriate for a familiy-sized pack; I don’t know how long 14 oz would last a family though. I like to eat it with an egg and bagel for breakfast but it also holds up well with a decent cheese as part of a turkey melt.
I’m very happy with Oscar Meyer Natural Selects Turkey. This review was collected as part of a promotion, and the opinions are my own.
I have concurred that Oscar Mayer Slow Roasted Turkey Breast is an excellent sandwich meat. It is relatively thin-sliced, has a nice and full flavor, and makes any sandwich great on its own. In fact, I would snack on this sandwich meat by itself.
The packaging is very simple and attractive to the eye. It is a bit of a pricey product, but I believe the quality of the product makes it worth every penny. I enjoyed giving this product a try. This review was collected as part of a promotion, and the opinions are my own.

I get grossed out by pre-packaged deli meat. It’s usually slimy and tastes weird. And the sodium! I’ve been exclusively buying a fresh deli-cut DiLusso brand turkey at a local grocery store, but I survive with Target drive-up for my weekly groceries and household needs.
So, I went out on a limb and gave this a shot. There are smaller sealed packages inside the sealed-tight plastic container, so it stays fresh! There was no slimy texture at all! The taste was great. In fact, I forgot it was low sodium.
Based on the limited availability, I’m guessing others have discovered this as well. This will be my new go-to for deli turkey!.
I’m truly impressed with the Good & Gather brand. I have tried several of the products in this line and find nothing lacking. Just as good, if not better than the name brand of the same product. Ex: the blue corn chips.
(as compared to Eatin). Their guacamole is REALLY good. So, when I saw these in the lunch meat section I figured chance were high that it would be as good as Oscar Myer. Not disappointed. It was a little different, but not bad.
This is the best tasting turkey lunch meat I’ve ever had. It’s the perfect blend of Smokey and sweet. I only gave it 4/5 because it does contain carrageenan and “natural flavoring”, but until I can find something better, this is my go-to for breakfast or lunch sandwiches.
I do also wish that the nutrition facts label listed the number of slices in a serving instead of saying it’s 2 ounces. I also found it strange that the label shows 0% iron, and turkey meat does contain iron.
I assume that’s because the serving size is so small? Overall I recommend this product and I have purchased it more than once.
This whole, bone-in turkey breast is perfect for an intimate celebration, or as a supplement to a whole turkey to ensure there’s enough tender, juicy white meat to go around. From USDA-certified organic turkeys, raised free-range on a 100% organic, all vegetarian, non-GMO diet with no antibiotics or hormones.
The result is a delightfully tender, moist turkey breast with superb taste.
This was one of the best tasting turkey breast’s we’ve ever prepared. Excellent taste and texture and shipped fresh and cold. The turkey was amazing but the customer service was even better. The shipper did not deliver my original order on time but D’Artagnan shipped a replacement delivered Tuesday before thanksgiving! I will buy from them for every occasion.
Great fresh products from a company that cares about its customers.
The organic turkey breast was tender and very tasty. I’m not a big fan of white meat turkey, but this one has a lot going for it–flavorful and juicy. My only complaint is that there wasn’t enough of it.
I didn’t know how many pounds would fit in my new fridge. Next time, I’m going to buy a bigger one! Everyone loved it.
Spent a small fortune on this turkey breast. It wasn’t bad, but it did not excel in any area. Although it was all natural, could have done as well with a supermarket turkey breast. I could have cried that I spent nearly $90 !!! Never again.

I ordered this ground turkey for my sons in California who feeds ground turkey to his dogs who can only tolerate groundturkey. Duringthis pandemic they were not able to get any ground turkey delivered to feed their animals.
My sons were both sick with COVID19 and were deperate for food to feed their dogs who by then were sick and could not eat regular dog food. I sent them 12 packages of this delicious product. It was delivered right on time and it was well preserved as it was shipped frozen with dry ice! It was still frozen when they receved it! My sons could not get over how delicious it smelled and so they tasted it and could not believe how fresh and delicious it was.
They have since put in another order for themselves. Thank you so veryn much. Your representative was very courteous and so helpful. Lu from NJ.
This is the 1st time I have tried the Organic ground turkey. I didnt like it at all. It had chucks of fat/gisitle in it. I should have known even out of the package it was a funny consistancy and it got worse after I cooked it.
Gross! I will not buy again or recommend to anyone. I even opened another pack and it was the same thing. I threw it away. Didnt even cook it. Yuck!.

There are many different brands of turkey that can be used for thanksgiving, but it ultimately depends on what the cook prefers. Some people prefer to use a frozen turkey, while others prefer a fresh turkey.
There are also many different types of turkey, such as organic, heritage, or free-range. The cook should choose the type of turkey based on their own preferences.
No matter what brand or type of turkey is used for thanksgiving, the most important thing is that the turkey is cooked properly. The turkey should be cooked until it reaches an internal temperature of at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
The turkey can be cooked in a variety of ways, such as roasted, grilled, or smoked.
After the turkey is cooked, it should be allowed to rest for at least 20 minutes before it is carved. This will allow the juices to redistribute throughout the meat, resulting in a juicier and more flavorful turkey.
