When it comes to holiday meals whole turkey and turkey parts are an excellent choice for holiday meals and recipes.  I love how far a whole turkey goes, you can start with a traditional turkey dinner and from there the possibilities are endless including soups, stir fry, sandwiches and even salads.

Did you know Turkey Farmers Care?!

For 8 years in a row Turkey Farmers of Canada and its member organizations have donated to Food Banks Canada for the purchase of turkey by rural food banks at Thanksgiving.

    TURKEY CLUB WITHOUT SPICY MAYO lol, I CAN’T do spicy anything…I even have to take pills because of my acid reflux …too old I guess but I do love a club house sandwich – my mom used to have cafe’s in all the small town hotels we had and a club house was always the favorite item on the menu. Now a days most places don’t have all the meat on that a sandwich is supposed to have.
