When my wife called to tell me she was bringing home dinner from Honey Baked Ham Co, I had to check my calendar to make sure I wasn't forgetting a special occasion. Typically we'll get a honey-baked ham for the holidays and a big plate of their ham is usually the only thing I can find solace in after another Cowboys loss. But my wife told me she wanted to try out Honey Baked's New Recipe Turkey Breast. I didn't know if I was more shocked that my wife had decided on dinner or that Honey Baked Ham actually made turkey as well.

The turkey didn't even make the plate before a piece was bitten off.

Much like the ham, the turkey does not need to be warmed up which makes for easy preparation. She also brought home sides of  and broccoli rice casserole and herb stuffing, which took about an hour to heat up. I am used to microwaving my boxed dressing so I was easily impressed. The dressing was very herbacious and stayed moist after I took it out of the oven. It was a very nice complement to Honey Baked's new roasted turkey breast.

 I don't think I have ever met a broccoli rice casserole I didn't like but Honey Baked makes one that I wouldn't mind to Facebook friend request. Cheesy, ricey, and broccoliy = delicious.

The roasted turkey breast didn't disappoint either. Serving the juicy turkey breast without warming it up guarantees my favorite part is still intact: the chips of sweet glaze that engulf the turkey breast. It's a delightful turkey dinner without the time and mess and the fight for the wishbone.

But the best part was the pie. I'm usually not a big fan of frozen pies but the Apple Caramel Walnut pie was a hit as it did not last long enough for to me take a picture. The walnuts were a great addition to the pie as it provided texture and crunch to the soft apple filling.

The only complaint I do have is the amount of cook time needed to make the sides and dessert. This is not something you can pick up from Honey Baked Ham Co., and have it ready as soon as you kick off your shoes. But it is worth the wait; especially if you'll be bringing it to a party or planning a nice dinner.

Honey Baked Ham Co., you have yourselves a winner. Now I'll be the favorite guest when I bring both ham and turkey to my holiday parties.
