PLEASE please stop putting so much pepper on it!

3 stars

These are a awesome roasting joint if you love turkey BUT tesco please PLEASE remove the black pepper! it turns bitter and I have to wipe it off every time it's just a waste! Not only do you put on WAY too much on if i was to pepper it but I'd much rather add my own herbs /spices and such! (fyi customers: it is really good with lemon, garlic and rosemary but wash off the pepper first.)

Get rid of the black pepper

4 stars

Dear Tesco, These are great value but the coating of black pepper is horrid, it goes bitter and burns when you cook it and ruins it. I buy these and wash it off.

Best buy for turkey.

Great value

I saw “single guy 11.12.19” recommendation and decided to treat myself. I love turkey and could eat it every day. This was very good. I didn’t know how big turkey legs could get. Well worth the price. I am getting another this week too so don’t all rush out to get one.

I wish all the stores had them ...

5 stars

I used to buy these often, but now, due to mobility issues, I can no longer get them because the Tesco store on Crieff Road, Perth do not stock them, they only carry the drumsticks which are good, but not as good as these joints.

Fell off the bone...

5 stars

Absolutely delicious!!! So easy to cook, just fell off the bone. And after resting in the juices for 15 mins, it shredded and caramelized a little. Will most definitely be purchasing this again!

I love Turkey but I’m a single guy so buying a who

5 stars

I love Turkey but I’m a single guy so buying a whole bird is not very practical. I’ve bought these Turkey thighs a few times now and I absolutely love them. I can get three hearty meals out of one of them so it’s really great value. My advice for cooking them is to stuff lemon and sprigs of rosemary under the skin and make up a paste with butter, smoked paprika, lemon zest, salt and pepper and slather it all over the meat and under the skin. Make up some balls of foil and put them on the bottom of your slow cooker, then more sprigs of rosemary and lemon halves, and then the turkey on top. Bear in mind that you have to be able to close the lid of the slow cooker so don’t make the balls of foil too big. You just need them to be high enough that the meat doesn’t poach in its own drippings. Let it cook for 8 hours on low. When it’s done you can stick the Turkey under your grill for a few minutes to crisp the skin. Delicious!

Well worth the money I would definitely recommend

5 stars

You get a lot of meat on this for your money

I got this on recommendation from someone else . H

I got this on recommendation from someone else . How I wish I didn’t . I’m surprised it says the turkeys are free to roam outdoors because this turkey is absolutely tasteless. And has probably put me off permanently. I don’t eat that much meat but if I do I like it to have a decent flavour and texture. I’d rather spend more for better quality. Although a bit too fibrous I’d say drumsticks at least used to have more taste .

please sir Can I have some more.

5 stars

Very good quality. Good value for money.
