Tired of the normal traditional turkey for Thanksgiving? How about the Flamin' Hot Turkey? And yes, Cheetos are involved!

Most people bake their turkey for hours on end. Others smoke their turkey, then there are the ones that deep fry their turkeys. It's time to through those old fashion blase ideas out the window and try the Flamin' Hot Cheeto Turkey. This actually looks pretty good. Hey this is official because Reynolds Kitchens has even posted a recipe for it.

Brush oil or butter on turkey and coat with the crushed chips.


Place hot puffed cheese sticks in a food processor and process until fully crushed. You can also add to a zip top bag and roll with a rolling pin until sticks are completely crushed.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.


Add 1 tsp of flour to the Reynolds® Oven Bag and place in a large roasting pan that is at least 2 inches deep.


Carefully slide turkey into the oven bag, making sure the opening of the bag is facing the end of the roasting pan, and not facing up. The bag should be inside the pan, not hanging over the edges of the pan.


Close oven bag with the included nylon tie, and cut six 1/2 inch slits in the top of the bag


Cook turkey till it reaches 165°F in several places. Remove from oven and let stand in oven bag for 15 minutes or until cool enough to handle.


Cut open the top of the bag. Carefully lift turkey from bag and place in a large baking dish or pan with at least 2” sides. Return turkey to oven for 15 to 20 minutes to crisp the coating.

Too spicy for you? They also have a recipe using Cool Ranch Doritos or Funions. You'll need some Renyold's Foil for this one. Hmm, Reynolds Roasting Bag or Reynolds Foil...interesting how that happens.
