I used to only make turkey dinners on the holidays like Christmas and Thanksgiving mainly because it was a whole day affair! You would have to defrost the turkey, then make the stuffing, stuff the bird and cook it all day. You get the idea. HOWEVER, things are much different now that I’ve discovered Butterball Turkey Roasts in the frozen food section of my local grocery store. My family is now enjoying turkey dinners any old day of the week!
I remember the first time I made a Butterball Turkey Roast for dinner and gave John his plate of food. He said, “But it’s not Thanksgiving yet?”. I told him that he was silly and of course, I knew it wasn’t Thanksgiving and that I can whip up a Turkey dinner with all the fixins’ in a matter of hours. It’s THAT easy.
This past week I made a Butterball Boneless Stuffed Turkey Breast. I’ve made the Butterball Boneless Turkey Breast before so this time around I wanted to see what it would be like with the stuffing already inside.
It’s very straightforward to make and the oven pretty much does all the work for you. The only thing you really need to do is brush the turkey with some oil and pop it in. It cooks for about 4.5 hours and my goodness does the house ever smell good!
When the time was up, it came out a beautiful golden brown. After waiting 15 minutes for it to cool a bit, I removed the netting and sliced to serve.
The stuffing is all in the centre of the breast so when I sliced it open, I scooped it into a bowl. For side dishes, I made baked potatoes (which can cook at the same time as the turkey), steamed broccoli and of course, the stuffing. We enjoyed all this deliciousness on a weeknight!
The turkey is so flavourful and moist and tasted just as good as my mom’s. The stuffing tasted like homemade and seconds were quickly requested. Turkey dinners have become a more common occurrence in our home. Not only do we get a meal of comfort food, but we can enjoy the yummy turkey leftovers!
Butterball roasts are available in your grocer’s freezer and they have a good variety to choose from including: Butterball Roast ‘n Slice Boneless Stuffed Turkey, Boneless Stuffed Turkey Breast Roast, Turkey Breast with Bone, Stuffed Turkey Breast with Bone, Boneless Turkey Breast & Boneless White and Dark Turkey Roast.
How often do you enjoy a turkey dinner?
