Sausage and meatballs specialist Snowbird Foods is pressing ahead with its first ever product using turkey.
Turkey Tuckers are frozen, fully cooked meatballs with a Moroccan flavour. Fruit has been added for sweetness and chilli for heat. Following the Moorish tradition, says the company, Turkey Tuckers are flavoured with mint, chilli, cumin, fresh and ground coriander, salt, onions, garlic, figs and apricots.
The products are fully cooked in the factory in a combination oven which steams and roasts the balls. They are then flash fried to enhance visual appeal and packed in three kilo bags. Turkey Tuckers can be heated from frozen in a microwave and can also be oven baked.
