It’s time for some turkey talk!
Is anyone as excited as I am for Thanksgiving?! I seriously love this time of year. I just feel like everyone is in a good mood and the best in people shine this time of year.
Jake and I plan on spending Thanksgiving with his Mom and grandparents. They are the sweetest and I love spending the holiday with them. His grandpa has the best stories!
What are your Thanksgiving plans?! Tel me, tell me!
I am planning on bring several dishes this year including my famous chocolate pecan pie (which I won’t be able to have due to the Whole30) but I love making it! I am also bring the roasted autumn veggies I made in a previous post. I might even bring my Creamy Pumpkin soup as a starter!
Planning is everything on the big day. Once everything is planned, stress goes away. It’s magic.
So let’s talk turkey.
Jennieo made it easy with their Oven Ready Turkey! I mean how much easier it can get than simply taking the turkey out of its exterior bag and punching a few holes in their oven safe bag. This oven safe bag is pretty genius as it keeps the bird hydrated the whole time.
It also has a spicy twist. It’s rubbed with Cajun seasoning ALL over. It’s pretty incredible. Especially paired with some Cayenne Pepper Butternut Squash Fries!
Take Thanksgiving up a notch and make this Cajun Spiced Roasted Turkey this year!

My MIL used to make a Cajun Fried Turkey and this reminds me so much of that! I can't wait to try it!
That's awesome!! I hope you do!! It's pretty incredible ??

I don't have any Thanksgiving plans this year so far! Ahh I know right! I forgot that it was next week until like yesterday! Love this turkey though! might have to make it this year!
I know! It snuck up on us this year! I hope you make this! It's so easy and I love it because I can pop it in the oven and not have to babysit it!

This looks so good! I love the unique flavoring -- what a great way to spice up (literally!) typical Thanksgiving turkey. We are having some friends and family over this Thanksgiving, and I think they would love this! 🙂
I bet they would! Especially if they love a bit of spice!! ???

Love the idea of making a Cajun flavored turkey for Thanksgiving! I usually just buy Cajun seasoning but will have to try making it at home now!
It's SO worth it!! Thank you Lisa!
That sounds like the tastiest turkey recipe EVER! I need to try this the next time we get a turkey. Gorgeous!
It was definitely a crowd pleaser! The spice is killer on it!

This would be such a delicious departure from my usual turkey flavorings. Can't wait to try it.
It's SO SO good! The smokiness is the best part!
