Unless the answer to the article's headline is 8-9 months, then what an odd time to publish it.

Turkey soup loaded with vegetables and egg noodles with a nice crusty bread and decent butter. That is all.

/freezes amazingly well too

Something is hinky: the website is saying the article is from this year but all the comments are from 2016. Guess Food 52 is just republishing old articles out of season cause they're low on content.

And they got a news aggregator for the clicks.

Quality standards should be better considering the age group of fark.

My only request is that I get to make at least one leftover turkey sandwich on sliced bread. Dark meat, Mayo, jellied cranberry sauce, and salt and pepper.

I have a better question: why the fark are we still collectively stupid enough to buy a whole turkey instead of getting a full set of parts that cook a hell of a lot faster?

Good news!  You can take care of that yourself.

/roasted a split turkey breast for my lunches this week.

didn't take a picture because it looked like, well, boring cream of turkey rice soup, but yeah the wife got a bowl* of that last night at the locale and there were no complaints.

well, no, there were complaints, but, y'know, par for the course:

her: I love this soup! but there is too much turkey in it!
me: ... do you really think that is a standard complaint of people eating turkey rice soup?
her: ok... no, but this is really too much turkey!
me: ...

*pffft, bowl/cup vs. seriously? pay 1 dollar more, get twice as much, eat it later or give it to your soup-loving father

I've never had a turkey sandwich. Am I missing out?

Meh, I dont mind too much. I separate the dark and white meat to cook differently. Smoked breast, cajun roasted dark meat.

As far as deli sandwiches go, slices of freshly roasted turkey breast can be pretty tasty if cooked properly and not dried out, and a welcome diversion from the usual heavily salted deli cuts, but delis that roast their own turkey breasts aren't as common these days as they used to be. If you're talking leftover thanksgiving sandwiches that are loaded with gravy, cranberry sauce, and stuffing, you're only missing out if you really like all those things.

I think turkey is an underrated protein.  Today there wasn't any fresh turkey in the store.  Anyway, when I get the desire and there is no turkey I'll just get a frozen turkey pot pie or roast turkey dinner.  The turkey loaf with gravy is an unhealthy treat.

Most of the turkey that I eat is from deli slices though.

Whole turkey is super easy to roast though and turkey noodle soup leftovers are the best.

/team dark meat

Pretty much only like the turkey and cranberry sauce so I see no loss here. :)

If you want a slightly healthier treat, ask the deli to slice turkey to your desired thickness and then grab a packet of McCormick chicken gravy mix. Make gravy. Submerge turkey. Wait five minutes and spoon over whatever you want, be it stuffing or fake potatoes or white bread.

I brined, spatch-cocked and smoked a whole turkey about 3 weeks ago.
It had been sitting in the freezer since Christmas.  Figured it was time to do something with it.

Made a brussel sprout hash and mushroom risotto to go with it.

I just pulled some Thanksgiving leftovers out of the freezer the other day. Every year we make a giant batch of Thanksgiving sausage by grinding up turkey, bacon, walnuts, dried cranberries, and sage, and stuff it into casings. Usually end up with about 5 lbs of sausage links. Freezes great and just threw a couple on the grill to go along with some fresh corn and mashed potatoes.

Yeah, I've done that.  I usually microwave a steam packet of mixed veg or just cauliflower in cheese sauce to go with it.

I am assuming the meats are precooked. To you blanch or steam the sausages after making or just freeze straight after the casing?

Oh, we smoke them. We already have the smoker going and full of a parted up turkey by that point, so it's easy enough to throw them in after they're stuffed.

Yeah, kind of an important detail to leave out. My bad.

I work in logistics. I'm telling you now, if you want something specifically for Christmas or a birthday. Buy it once it is available. We're getting close to a situation of limited resources that would make the great toilet paper shortage of 2020 look like a pot hole.
