Recently, my wonderful Father brought over a 16 ounce package of Butterball Family Size Oven Roasted White Turkey and I’m very glad that he did so. This fully – cooked, all white – meat turkey product is delicious, convenient and reasonably – priced.
I must admit, every time I take a slice or two from the package, I feel like I’m eating a special product. Until my Father brought over this package, I didn’t even know that Butterball produced fully – cooked, sliced turkey lunch meats. Butterball poultry products are widely – recognized for their great taste and overall high quality and this item maintains that tradition. Presented here, as a service to the consumer at large, is one food writer’s product review of Butterball Family Size Oven Roasted White Turkey.
The net weight of the standard – sized package of Butterball Family Size Oven Roasted White Turkey is 16 ounces. According to the package label, the container holds 16 servings. I think that the serving size is realistic. When I eat a sandwich made with one slice of this turkey, it is just big enough to satisfy my appetite. In physical size, the package is approximately the same size as the average container of bologna, salami and other types of cold cuts ( 5″ x 5″ ).
The regular retail price charged for one 16 ounce package of Butterball Family Size Oven Roasted White Turkey at Hartford, Connecticut area supermarkets is approximately $3. I definitely think that this price is reasonable, especially when the great flavor, texture and overall high quality of the product is taken into consideration. In a way, I’m surprised that this item is not priced even higher, just because it is a Butterball product. When it comes to turkey products, you can’t get much better than Butterball brand products.
The texture offered by Butterball Family Size Oven Roasted White Turkey is that of real, high – quality white turkey meat. Of course, the texture is not exactly like that of a freshly – roasted Butterball turkey, because it has been processed, but it is as close to real turkey as you will find in processed slices.
The texture of this product makes it ideal for use in cold sandwiches and I recently realized that these turkey slices can also be sauteed or microwaved and be served hot with gravy, alongside some mashed potatoes and vegetables. I have also eaten some of this turkey plain, straight from the package and I can tell that it actually is all real turkey meat.

Taste / Flavor
The flavor of Butterball Family Size Oven Roasted White Turkey is definitely a cut above most other brands of sliced turkey. This variety of sliced turkey does not contain fillers, mystery meat or other unidentified substances and it is very pleasant to consume. Most of the time, I’ve been utilizing this sliced turkey in cold sandwiches, but I’ve also heated it in a pan with gravy and served it with mashed potatoes, peas and corn. No matter how I eat it, this item tastes more like fresh turkey than it does turkey roll.
Butterball Family Size Oven Roasted White Turkey is packaged in a clear plastic container that has a navy blue background. The front label features an appetizing illustration of a turkey sandwich and the rear label lists all relevant ingredient and nutritional information.
The sealed – tight package is easy to open, but it does not seal when it is re – closed. I have been wrapping the package in a piece of aluminum foil after it has been opened, to prolong freshness.
This fully – cooked, reasonably – priced turkey product is very flavorful and tastes more like real turkey than turkey roll or turkey loaf. These round slices of white meat turkey are convenient and they are a nice alternative to ham, bologna, salami and tuna. Available at supermarkets across America, Butterball Family Size Oven Roasted White Turkey is highly recommended by this food writer.
