Frozen Friday: Stouffer's - Roast Turkey Breast

Stouffer's Turkey Dinner boxed
Another frozen dinner staple, the turkey dinner is one of my favorites. Mostly because it reminds me of Thanksgiving when I used to eat copious amount of turkey and mashed potatoes and gravy.

Stouffer's does a fairly quality (relatively speaking) rendition of the good ole turkey and gravy, labeling it the Roast Turkey Breast. It's usually priced over $4 in my neighborhood but often goes on sale for around $2.

I like that Stouffer's dinners contains no preservatives. It's reassuring to know that my body will decompose properly when my time's up. What Stouffer's Roast Turkey Breast does contain is turkey medallions mixed with cornbread stuffing and gravy with a substantial side of mashed potatoes.

Like Stouffer's Meatloaf Dinner, there's no holes to poke, food to stir, you just put it in the microwave out of the box, set it and your turkey awaits!

The turkey is a bit on the dry side and the stuffing is soggy, but it's still decent enough. It's easy to dry white meat turkey, especially with frozen food. The gravy masks some of the turkey's dryness and makes a good go of it.

The mashed potatoes are covered in a orange red powder which really didn't taste like anything. If I were to guess, maybe paprika? Stouffer's does a pretty good job with the mashed potatoes, nice consistency and flavor, not too rich or salty.

I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that the stuffing contains celery, something my siblings hate with a passion. I like it fine as long as it's cooked. I never liked celery sticks with Ranch or peanut butter growing up; too hard to chew and stringy. No worries for the celery haters though, you really can't taste it in this dinner.
