Cousin Phyllis has honored us with her delicious baked cajun turkey recipe. This recipe is for a twelve (12) pound turkey. Thaw and remove any packaging and the giblet from the turkey neck and cavity. Rinse turkey with cold water pat the bird dry with a paper towel. Fold the wings behind the turkey. This step ensures they don’t scorch or dry out. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Generously rub the turkey, inside and out, with Goya Sazonador, black pepper, and cajun seasoning salt. Dice 2 sticks of butter. Place one (1) stick under the skin on the breast, massage over the top to move the butter around. Rub the remaining stick of butter on the legs, thighs and wings. Place turkey in pan. Bake uncovered. Baste the turkey every hour. Turkey is done when it is golden brown and the internal temperature is 140 degrees.
We’ve got the main dish what sides are we going to prepare? I would prepare some killer sides, cheese grits with mushroom gravy, roasted Brussel sprouts, apricot glazed yams, spinach salad, rolls, sweet tea, and coconut pineapple cake for dessert. What would you prepare?
