Casual Thanksgiving for Two? Try This Gardein Savory Stuffed Turk'y

Savory Stuffed Turk'y with Green Beans & Sweet Potato Puree with Cranberries

I'm a big fan of Gardein, so I was excited to see that they added a seasonal item to their products, this "Savory Stuffed Turk'y." It comes frozen, and there are two breaded turk'y roasts per package. The stuffing inside each roast includes celery, onions, and cranberries, and a packet of gravy is also included.

I really did enjoy this stuffed turk'y - the breading on the outside stayed nice and crispy, while the inside was tender and moist. It was all very flavorful, including the gravy, and tasted just like Thanksgiving with all the herbs and seasonings. 

Does it have enough of the "wow" factor to serve on Thanksgiving? Probably not, unless it's maybe just two of you, and you're going for a casual thing, in which case, sure, why not? But it was definitely tasty, and I would recommend it as a pre-Thanksgiving warm-up meal, or maybe an after-Thanksgiving dish, to go along with all the leftover sides. Or pretty much any other time. You can figure that out for yourself. But get this, because it's a good thing. 


  1. We shop tomorrow. I hope our local market carries this. It would be so awesome! Thanks for sharing this info. I'm really enjoying all the recipes and fun you share. God Bless and Happy Thanksgiving.

  2. Looks like an elegant dinner. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

  3. I am traveling 9 hours by car with a package of these in a cooler. Excited to try, and hope they hold up!
