Cajun Roasted Cheesecloth Turkey with a delicious herb butter rub on the table for Thanksgiving.

We made our Roasted Turkey recipe for Thanksgiving a little different this year. We stuck with our Cheesecloth Turkey recipe but made it a Cajun Roasted Turkey.

It might be past Thanksgiving, but I know some people still make a Turkey for Christmas. So, I thought I would share this delicious Cajun Roasted Cheesecloth Turkey recipe incase you're looking to do something a little bit different.

It has a delicious Cajun Herb Butter rub with a smokey flavor from smoked paprika, and a little heat from the cayenne pepper. Fresh rosemary, thyme, oregano, sage, and plenty of minced garlic. Sage isn't traditional in cajun seasoning but it goes so well with Turkey I added it. 

Sometimes it's fun to do something different and both styles of Roasted Turkeys are delicious in their own way. Both Turkeys turn out super juicy and so delicious! 

I also shared at the end of this post how to make Gravy, since that is a common question I've been asked.

Here's how I made this Cajun Roasted Cheesecloth Turkey recipe:

Lemon Snowball Cookies are a delicious Christmas Cookie.

The ingredient list for these cookies are super simple with only 6 ingredients, and about 12 minutes to make the dough! Making these a favorite easy cookie recipe.

The kids always loved to make Snowball Cookies when they were little since it's fun to roll the dough and dust with powdered sugar.

Lemon Snowball Cookies are a light and crumbly cookie that just melts in your mouth. I find the lemon flavor intensifies as they sit overnight and are best eaten the next day making these perfect to give out for Christmas.
