Is that time of the year my friends. Temperatures start going down and all I want to do is stay cozy inside my home. It is also my favorite time to bake, so I am always looking for excuses to turn on my oven. I mean, don’t you love a warm home filled with the scent of delicious food coming out of the oven? It is one of the best feelings! And turkey is one of those foods I bake often. The Jennie-O Oven ReadyTM Turkey is so sooooo easy to prepare and tastes super delicious which is why is one my my best friends all year long. It comes already seasoned, no need to be thawed, goes straight in the oven and comes out perfectly done.

Look at this pretty bird. The color, the smells and tastes are all I need. So I definitely suggest you save time and work by getting the Jennie-O Oven ReadyTM Turkey this holiday season.
Gosh I wish you could smell it. Can you see the steam coming right out of this juicy turkey breast? And all I did was place it in the oven friends!
We devoured all of the dark meat for dinner the day we baked the turkey and saved the breasts to make this recipe.
It is one of my family favorites. It is actually a recipe I got from my mother in law but that I have adapted to make it my own. I switched peas for sweet potatoes and added thyme for additional flavor. I have seen some people making this recipe with carrots too. But the sweet potatoes give this recipe another fall element that makes it even more hearty and perfect.
I am making this again the day after Thanksgiving for sure!
The star of this dish it is most definitely the Jennie-O Oven ReadyTM Turkey it goes from freezer to oven perfect, no thawing and all the easy instructions are clearly on its packaging. I am a new women since I first tried it. You should try it too!
