I am so happy to be partnering with Jennie-O to bring you this post! Thank you for supporting the brands that make Wine & Glue possible!

So I went into Target the other day and . . . . they were decorating for CHRISTMAS!!!

You guys, I know there are some people who will roll their eyes at that, but I could not have been more excited! Bring on the season of Thanksgistmas!! (Please don’t send me hate mail. I promise I know the true meaning of Christmas.)  I seriously wanted to start doing a little dance in the aisle right in front of the reindeer mugs. :)

Show of hands, am I wrong if I start playing Christmas music . . . tomorrow?

Don’t answer that.

On a plate, a whole roasted Turkey is plated on top of some lettuce and a side of cranberry sauce.

So with the coming season of Thanksgistmas (it’s a thing, get behind it), comes the planning of all the important holiday meals, and TURKEY!! Big whole bird turkeys that cook for a few hours in your oven and are the amazing centerpiece of the meal.

So you guys have known for sometime how much I love Jennie-O. Seriously, we eat their products at least one time a week, but usually more (it’s on the menu twice this week!). And I know many of you know, and probably buy, large frozen Jennie-O turkeys for your Thanksgiving birds, but! Did you guys know that you can buy a completely frozen Jennie-O turkey that is ready to just pop in the oven?? Like no thawing, no basting, no rinsing, no nonsense, no muss, no fuss!?!

You guys, these oven ready turkeys from Jennie-O are legit. They come in this big giant bag, and then you take that out and you have the bird in another bag and some gravy. You set the gravy aside, cut a few holes in the bag directly around the bird, and pull the bag away from the turkey. Place it in a pan and bake it for about four hours. (If you want to see the step by step, click here.)

DONE.

Seriously, that’s it.

And now this year they have this amazing cajun flavored bird. The flavoring is on the outside, and perfectly seasons the meat within. I love Jennie-O’s Oven Ready Turkeys so much because they turn out perfect every single time I make them. And they literally could not be easier to make. If you are hosting a Thanksgiving or Christmas holiday this year and are nervous about making a turkey, don’t be!! Get one of these bad boys instead and love it!

And then . . . should you have any left overs, make this amazing Turkey Bacon Brie Grilled Cheese! It’s like this most amazing flavorful grilled cheese for grownups. I looooooove the idea of grilled cheese for grown ups. :)
