Don’t miss the Smoked Turkey Pastrami at House of Raeford Outlet in Raeford.
At the mere mention of the turkey outlet in Raeford, people snicker and think that I’m pulling their leg. But for those of us who are turkey gobblers, it’s hard to pass without stopping.
I stick with the smoked turkey pastrami, made from dark meat, bargain-priced at $1.49 a pound, and weighing in at only 1.5 grams of fat per 2-ounce serving. The ready-to-slice, pepper-encrusted brisket is moist and flavorful enough to hold up against thick slices of rye bread. Got sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, and thousand-island dressing? Then you’ve got an amazing Reuben.
The outlet also offers 50 other items, including frozen heat-and-eat turkey and dressing, smoked turkey breasts, and ready-to-cook and pre-cooked chicken. Virtualtourist.com mentions “ ‘Ugly Eggs’ that were misshaped but usually double-yolked … for the kids to color at Easter.” I checked and, sure enough, they’re occasionally available.
