Minnesota Cooking: Smoke Flavor Turkey Sandwich Meat
Turkey Was on Sale
Let's face it, any time you can buy a turkey for less than $1 a pound, it's a good deal. Time to purchase some for the freezer, and time to cook up one.
These turkey roasts were a mixed meat, dark and white, and tied together with a string cage. I was just happy that the pieces were slabs and not minced like you'd find on the old style turkey roasts.
I was going to soak it in salt brine and smoke it in the smoker, but, I grew lazy. That may have to be my next project.
- 1 turkey roast
- 1/4 cup chives
- 1/4 cup I Can't Believe it's Not butter
- 2 stalks celery, chopped
- 1/4 cup Baking Miracle
- 2 T. liquid smoke
- 1 T. Cookies Seasoned Salt
- 1 package gravy
- 1 tsp. cracked pepper
- Cook from frozen. Heat oven to 320 degrees. Spray outside of turkey with I can't Believe it's not Butter and coat with Baking Miracle.
- Place a couple handfuls of chives and 2 stalks celery in oven cooking bag, add 2 tablespoons of Liquid smoke, a tablespoon of Cookies seasoning and the frozen gravy package from the roast.
- Place turkey in bag on top of items in bag. Seal bag and poke 6 holes in top. Place in oven at 320 and cook for 2 hours.
- Remove string cage, slice and enjoy!
I'm a real fan of using the oven cooking bags and I've developed a real fondness for using handfuls of chopped chives. I have onion chives and I have garlic chives. Both add such delicious flavor.
As usual, I have chopped up two stalks of celery and, in addition to the gravy package that is in package with the turkey, I'm using spray butter, Cookies seasoning, liquid smoke and cracked black pepper.
