Just a heads up to what seems a great deal, especially in the current finacial crisis.

Asda says its dinner of turkey, vegetables, potatoes, cranberry sauce, gravy, stuffing and a pudding will feed a family of six for that price - or £1.83 a head.

very cheap and will be great for some ;-)

Now that is HOT!

I wonder what size the turkey is.

I probably wont be buying this because I order a huge turkey crown from my butchers, but this is still a steaming hot deal!!!

Heat and rep added!

Is the turkey free range?

Haha. To be honest i'd be surprised if its even a whole turkey. Pretty amazing deal if it will actually feed 6, although the way people tend to eat at Xmas dinner im guessing the reality will be more like 2.

Hopefully there aren't many people around who only have £11 available for a Christmas dinner of 6, but for those that do, a great deal!

More likely to be a pack of BM Turkey Drummers :lol:

looks like a bargain, wonder what the other stores will come back with to compete ?? x

Apparently it's 6 turkey twizlers and a jumbo box of McCain Micro Chips!
#9
Hmmmm...if things are that bad I think I'll hunt out a Christmas soup kitchen!

i wouldnt touch the turkey in this offer...factory farming at its worst
#11
voted hot sounds like a great deal x
#12
Not sure why you've voted hot when you don't know exactly what you're getting for this £11

Probably won't even be enough to feel a family of six little people

all of the above :w00t:

I would like to know just what constitutes a "slap up" dinner as defined by the Asda guy :w00t:


Simon Shaw, head chef at Asda, told The Sun: "Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a big slap-up turkey dinner and at £1.83 a head this is the UK's best value."

yep you go eat your free range organic turkey, the real facts are every turkey is mass produced, unless you go to that small independent butcher who sources all his meats from up the road.

Plus a good majority of free range and organic birds are infact these 'factory farmed' birds as you like to call them.

These aren't just low quality because their cheap, ASDA will be making a significant loss on this deal in the hope the people they pull in off will do the rest of their xmas shopping with them.

Are you serious.....

Free Range turkeys are usually from about £6 a kilo .

It will probably be a lump of tasteless battery farmed turkey.

Typical from some posters on here. I would say that 60-70% of turkeys eaten at Christmas would of been reared in this way. As another poster has said unless you now the butcher and the farmer you will most likely be buying a Turkey reared this way.

Surprised the thread hasn't been spoiled by the meat free veggie brigade.

ASDA won't be making a loss lol, they buy the meat/veg at minimum price so it's the farmers making a loss ;-)
#23
....for a second I read this as Christmas dinner at the Asda Cafe, now that would have been interesting on Christmas day :-D
#24
Do we even know if it's a whole turkey or is it slices of turkey like substance contained within six "ready" meals?
Based on the fact you'd struggle to buy a whole fresh (or frozen) turkey which feeds six for £11, I suspect these will be ready meals with two slices of turkey, three potatos a couple of sliced carrots and some sauce & gravy.

I really feel sorry for those people who are so hard up this Christmas, they have to entertain such an idea [feeding six people for £1.83 each], because at who else is this targeted?

Everyone? The OP you mean. As for me its taters, beans and smashed monkey for christmas dinner :w00t:

Good find! Heat added!!
This just to heat-up the competition.

What you pay is what you get...for £11 we can't expect "free range", "farm fed" etc;-)

Pervert. Why would you want to FEEL a family of six little people? The L is nowhere near the D on a keyboard either.
You are Gary Glitter and I claim my £5.

Just been to Asda to have a look if I could see what will be on offer.

There was a box of 12 mince pies for £1, Christmas puddings for £1(not the large ones but average size) cranberry sauce £1 and Aunt Bessie stuffing balls £1, I didn't have a look for the veg but did see a turkey for £5, it's in the freezer section and it's an extra small basted turkey, doesn't look like it would feed 1 let alone 6 but I think this is your meal for 6 for £11. Could be wrong but the maths are correct.

Like you say the £11 offer is built around a £5 turkey and then £1 or even 50p items for the rest.

They'd have been better saying it was for 4 and £2.75 a head rather than for 6 to grab the headlines for a meal under £2.

Either way - 4 or 6 - it is not a slap up meal.

To be honest, if all I had was £11 and I had to rustle up a Christmas dinner, I would shop around and do better - both in terms of quality and quantity - although I would only have gone for a family of 4 rather than the rather ridiculous family of 6.

I would spend £5.49 on a FRESH ready to roast Turkey Breast from Marks and Spencers which is better quality than a cheap frozen Turkey. Absolutely no waste and easily enough for 4 if there were plenty of spuds and Veg. It is so easy to cook as well in it's own foil container. Easy to whip up some gravy with the juices. This is a PROPER turkey breast - not your chopped and shaped Bernard Matthews type thing.

For the veg I would track down a bag of spuds for less than a £1 to do roasts and mashed. I think you can always find a good bag for less than a £1 somewhere. I would be able to get 1KG bag of carrots and 2 x 500G bags of parsnips for 39p a bag at Lidl/Aldi. A cabbage at Aldi for 29p (better than sprouts). A bag of frozen peas for 75p. That's a lot of Veg for about £3.25p. Would do both roasted and puree carrots and parsnips so you would have plenty of variety.

That leaves just over £2 for the rest. Well I have seen a small jar of Cranberry Sauce for 49p and standard box of Paxo stuffing for 39p to make your own stuffing balls. That leaves £1 odd for a Christmas Pudding - seen them for 99p at Morrisons. Might just have 39p left for a small pot of single cream! Phew!!

There wouldn't be any need for the mince pies because with all that Veg you would feel full enough !

Well it is pretty difficult to do for £11 but I would prefer my own effort. The Turkey would at least be good quality and all white meat and I would serve 4 very decent plates of food....followed by a little bit of pudding to round it off.

Anyone else got any ideas!

if your happy to eat this then go for it....i know the "real facts"
about the "organic" and "free range" meats the supermarkets like to offer us....the difference in alot of the products is the packaging!!!and thats it.........im lucky i have a butcher in the family who sells traceable foods locally sourced....so dont assume to know what im eating on the basis of me not touching asdas cheap fodder.
