Gardein Lightly Breaded Turk'y Cutlet

I was on the lookout for new Vegan eats, at Target of all places, when I saw the new Gardein Lightly Breaded Turk'y Cutlet. The thought of a Vegan cutlet with gravy made my stomach growl, and I had to have it. A common hot lunch in elementary school was beef cutlet with mashed potatoes and gravy. I still crave it in a weird nostalgic way. So, I thought this would fill that little food void from my childhood. At the very least it looks really good on the package!  

A quick 20 minutes in the toaster oven yielded probably my favorite Gardein meal EVER. I attribute some of that to the emotional connection, but holy crap is this cutlet ever good! Crisp, hearty and tasty; I would take this over any fake turkey roast any day. The cutlet does have a hint of turkey, but topped with the gravy, it just tastes like a damn good cutlet to me. Nicely breaded with four servings in a packet, it feels like a full meal, just add veggies. The gravy packets that come with are super easy to use. Thaw the packets in hot water, empty them and then microwave the gravy for a minute or two. My only complain is that I would have liked more gravy, but wouldn't we all?

So, I give the Gardein Lightly Breaded Turk'y Cutlet the highest recommendation, the Golden Microwave. Actually, I just made the Golden Microwave up, but you get what I mean. If you're looking for something a little different that's more like a meal then just a snack, give the new Gardein Cutlets a whirl.


  1. yum! I've never bought anything by gardein, but I think I have some coupons left over from VVC! Thanks for the tips! :)

  2. Ooo that looks like it would totally hit a comfort food craving, I'll have to try it.

  3. Thanks for the review! I'll definitely give them a try. Sometimes I just stay away from vegan "meats" because I don't really like most of them. But once in awhile, a product comes out that makes it all better. (it happened to me with Field Roast sausages, YUM).

  4. No prob! Yes, Field Roast Sausages are AMAZING!

  5. i have never had veggie turkey that i actually liked. But if you say its good, ill give it a try!

  6. Those Turk'y Cutlets are soooo GOOD.
