Verdict - YUMMMMMMMM! Christmas Dinners are sorted forever!
This product has to be my favourite out of all the Bernard Matthews Deli Meat range. The Turkey is so much more flavoursome than the Chicken slices. The Sage and Onion Turkey Breast slices however, come out tops on just about everything!
The packaging is the simple plastic case with the peel back plastic. It's not resealable so it won't keep the meat fresh but to be honest, the turkey won't last long as there are only 5 slices in a pack.
As soon as you open the pack, you can instantly smell the strong scent of sage; just like sage and onion stuffing. The meat is slightly off white with lots of specks of green sage. The turkey slice is about 12cm long and 8cm wide (same as the Chicken Slices - see my previous review) and of a nice thickness to be call a 'slice' rather than 'wafer thin'.
The turkey is particularly nice if you roll it up. I eat it straight out the pack if I'm hungry and need something quick before getting back to work.
The meat is smooth and slightly 'wet' but this makes it very moist and has a 'melt in the mouth' quality - There are no grisly bits of fat..
The flavour is very strong. If you like sage and onion stuffing balls with your Turkey then this is for you - without the carbs and calories. The sage is very prominent but not overpowering to the point where is lingers in the back of your throat or makes you burp sage and onion for the rest of the day. The fresh turkey flavour creates the prefect balance.
I happily munched this as part of my Christmas Dinner (because I worked Christmas day from 6am till 10pm).
These slices would be excellent in sandwiches, salads, as part of a dinner (I'm sure you could warm them up a little); rolled up and skewed together with cocktail sticks on a buffet...there's little limit.
Thoroughly recommended for a tasty, nutritious, healthy snack, straight out the pack.
