It’s true what the package says — The Turkey browned in the bag, was tender and tasted great.
I didn’t know Jennie-O sold such a Turkey. I didn’t have to remove the giblets, yay!
Since the Turkey was so easy to prepare, I made a complete, early Thanksgiving Dinner.
And surprisingly I discovered that I like Turkey Bacon, though I wasn’t even sure I wanted to try it. It looks quite different than Bacon in its raw state. It feels like Bologna, kind of looks like a surfboard and fake Bacon with a line running down the middle, but it tastes pretty good, like Bacon.
Turkey Bacon cooks up nice and crisp, but it’s a little harder to tell when it’s done. I accidentally burnt the first batch, but the second batch (below) turned out well. There is a fine line between burnt and nicely crisp. Turkey Bacon is in a few of the Jennie-O Thanksgiving Side Dishes.
I will definitely buy Jennie-O’s Oven Ready Whole Turkey and Turkey Bacon again. I appreciate the coupons they sent us. I gave away a couple of them. When purchasing Jennie-O’s Oven Ready whole Turkey, a lady in line in front of me, expressed her love for Jennie-O products and had never seen their Oven Ready Whole Turkey, so I gave her one of the Jennie-O coupons to try it too.
Thank you Jennie-O! I tried a couple products I never thought to try before and actually really like ’em. I have a better appreciation of Jennie-O’s products. They offer much more than we thought.
