There’s nothing more American than a Thanksgiving feast. Well, there might be one thing that is even more so – turning the turkey dinner into a celebration of fast food deliciousness. If you love a good old bag of chips, then you’re going to love how this recipe combines turkey with a bag of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos in a recipe, unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.
Creating a Flamin’ Hot Cheetos coating for your turkey is not as hard as it might sound. When you follow the steps in this recipe, you’ll be able to present your family with a dinner table classic done up in a 2021st century way. While the Flamin’ Hot Cheetos turkey might not be everyone’s cup of tea, it most certainly is delicious and is bound to appease some stubborn and picky eaters this holiday season.
For this crunchy recipe, you need a few things. First, you’ll need your turkey, 1 tbsp. flour, oil or butter, one large bag of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, and an oven bag large enough to fit a turkey.
Getting started with this recipe is quite easy. First, you need to pick up a bag or two of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos to ensure that you have the essential ingredient for this holiday feast. Once you have your bag of tasty treats, pour them all into your food processor. You’ll need to break them down into crumbs so you can adhere them to the skin of the raw turkey before it goes into the oven and transforms into a delicious bird for the big day.
However, before putting the dry rub onto the bird, brush the turkey with oil or melted butter. This will help the food-processed Flamin’ Hot Cheetos attach and stay right where you want them throughout the cooking process.
Although this recipe is bound to shock some people, it’s really just a twist on the classic Thanksgiving turkey dinner.
Once you’ve chopped up your Cheetos with the food processor, you need to adhere them to the raw bird. Rub them onto the bird while the pieces are still dry. They should stick. After that step, you need to place the raw turkey into an oven bag. With the turkey in the bag, place it into a large roasting pan and ensure that the turkey has at least two inches of space on each side.
Close the bag opening with the included tab. Make sure it is not hanging over the edge of the roasting pan.
Next, slice six ½ inch slits into the top of the roasting bag. This allows steam to escape so the bird can cook evenly without getting overwhelmed with the stream.
Bake the bird in the preheated 350-degrees Fahrenheit oven for as long as it takes until the internal temperature of the thickest part of the bird’s thigh reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
Thanksgiving is the perfect time to try something that will please your guests. If you know that those coming to your dinner table love Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, then this turkey recipe is the one!
