Turkey Jerky

This jerky is by far the easiest to make. In fact, beyond making my own travel and home snacks, I might forgo purchasing our dog’s jerky treats and use these instead because they’re simple and uninvolved. 

Super easy

Turkey Jerky


For 1 Batch(es)


  • Seasoned or plain oven-roasted turkey from the deli

Turkey Jerky Directions

  1. Choose any amount of seasoned or plain oven-roasted turkey from the deli and request slices to be about ¼-inch thick.
  2. At home, slice these ovals into 1-inch wide strips and add 1 teaspoon of salt directly to the strips for every pound of sliced meat.
  3. Season as desired with other spices, such as cayenne, curry or cracked black peppercorns, by the ½ teaspoon for each pound of meat.
  4. It took approximately 2 hours to dehydrate ½-pound of turkey using both the oven and dehydrator methods and yielded a pint jar of finished jerky.
