Default Jennie-O turkey

the theory was to buy a turkey breast. our Giant has the complete "two breasts" package - $25, umpteen pounds - just not a realistic buy for us.

so I picked up a Jennie-O oven to freezer boneless roast - thingie in a roasting bag etc etc

estimate was 1 hour 40 minutes at 375'F - this is what it looked like:

the gravy was horrible - absolutely inedible. fortunately had the presence of mind to spoon taste it in the pot before putting it on the dish - just tossed it.

wound up slicing off and roasting a couple thick slabs on a rack - the pix was taken at two hours roasting time.

exterior was tough and stringy - the meat was passable if you cut off all the exterior.

in short - $12 poorly spent; do not go there.....

Ewwww!
Yes, I've seen those along with the whole turkey.
Is there supposed to be any thawing time at all before roasting?


Hmmmm...pass!

they claim freezer to oven - no thaw.
their timing recommendation is apparently untested.
