Historic Range: $4.90-$299.00

Tasty, nutritious, filling. Good textrure.
- Nice chunks of turkey
- A bit salty
One of the dehydrated meals I bought to feed a couple of clients on a week-long trip to the Canadian Rockies. Very tasty, and since I cooked it at the beginning of the week, it really helped to make the point that a lot of dehydrated food is just about as good as regular meals.
Easy to prepare, as is every Mountain House meal — just add boiling water and seal the bag, wait 8-10 minutes, stir and serve. At 320 calories per serving (1/2 package) there's lots of energy to keep you going, and the spaghetti and extra flavours ( asparagus, pimentos, mushrooms) keep it interesting. The pieces of turkey are reasonably large, and they rehydrate well and retain their flavour when cooked.
The Turkey Tetrazzini compares favourably with other commercial meals (certainly better than I could prepare at home) and it's become one of my new favourites. The only downside is that some might think it a bit too salty, not usually a problem if you've been backpacking all day, but the taste might be less acceptable if you're a bit more sedentary.
All in all, one of the better meals that Mountain House sells. I'll be buying it again, and I expect my next set of clients to enjoy it as well.
