baby turkey with vegetable gouda stuffing

2019-11-24

Did you know?
A baby turkey of less than 8 lbs. does not have the typical sharp turkey flavor. There’s a hint of it, but it is not nearly as strong as with adult birds. This is almost like a big chicken. I've had fryer chickens of 6+ lbs. This one was not much bigger really.

Marielos doesn’t like turkey because of that sharpness. She thought this little one tasted a lot better than the bigger birds. I’m never buying a big bird again.

Take note how very different the outcome .
