Am I being dead skanky doing this as the Christmas meal at home? Anyone tried it....is it as good as I am hearing?

There's only going to be me, DS and exDH (yes really) for Xmas dinner.

Every year I knock myself out buying a turkey, stuffing it, getting all the timings right for cooking etc and this year I just want to take it easy. I have bought one of these, it's in the freezer along with smoked salmon for breakfast etc.

I just want to relax and enjoy things this year without all the hassle. I want to be able to have a drink and know that all the prep is sorted out for me.

It's not something I would usually buy and in the past I have bought into all the hype about turkey (or other meat). This year though I am on benefits for the first time ever so don't have the spare cash I am used to having. Aldi's had good deals on the salmon and other stuff so I went there.

Don't know why I am asking really lol, surely if we enjoy it then that's all that matters.exH said "ooh delicious" when I told him what I'd bought.

So anyone else tried it? What was your opinion?

our butcher does a 7 bird roast with a quail in the middle which I've always found odd as only one or 2 people at most get any so what's the point?

Just finished the aldi one, new and improved recipe on the packaging if it makes any difference. It was yummy grin

We had this for xmas dinner last year - it was a big hit, even my notoriously fussy ds liked it.

Please tell me they don't call it a turducken? Turd?

The M&S Four bird joint is £120!

The Aldi 4 bird roast is nice, just highly flavoured. You could get that and a Quorn roast (3 for £5 in Asda) for people who want something bland. I cook the
Quorn roast for just under the time stated then slice and put in a dish with veg gravy for 15 mins in the oven, as Quorn can be a bit dry. Still only £15 for all the meat (and non-meat).

I've had that, it was rubbish. Tiny and you'd never know there were 4 different flavours.

We are having it......I was going to get a chicken but sadly my car battery died this week and so did the radiator......it's cost me just shy of £130 I didn't really have to get both done. Still, at least the car is on the road again.

Aldi 4 Bird Roast it is then....

We like them here, adults and children. It will be fine.

I have cooked it a couple of times and think it's really nice.
