The turkey is a large poultry bird that is said to have been domesticated by the people of Mesoamerica. It is sold sliced and ground or as a whole like chicken with its head, feet and feather removed. Sliced turkey is used in sandwiches or served as cold cuts. The turkey is now a year round food enjoyed for its intense flavor.
Turkey is often used as a substitute for chicken. Turkey is often preferred over beef as it has lower calorie content. Turkey meat is a better, less risky, less fattening and a much healthier meat to consume as compared to beef. Once spices and seasonings are added, there is hardly any difference between the two meats. High quality lean turkeys are better than all forms of beef.
