My son Robert and his family planned to come to Tennessee for Thanksgiving, but when their plans changed Betsy and I travelled down to Florida to have Thanksgiving with them.  One advantage of making the trip was that Robert agreed to make some of his fried turkey for us, a treat that neither Betsy nor I had had before.

The process started with Robert injecting some Cajun marinade into two turkey breasts and a whole turkey (he must have thought we were hungry!).

The turkey breasts then went into the fryer with the help of a friend.  While these two played around fixing dinner, I worked hard as the official photographer.

The turkey was fried after the breasts were done, and it came out of the fryer a beautiful golden brown.

While we were busy slaving away outside with the fryer, Melissa was busy in the kitchen.  The result of all this work was a feast fit for a king.

    Looks delicious!

    I had fried turkey a few years ago and it was delish.. and i would eat cardboard if you drizzled caramel on it… that pie looks wonderful. glad you got to spend TG with your son and family.

    The turkey and the meal all look delicious. I’ve had fried turkey once, and I really enjoyed it. But I guess cooking one that way can be dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing. I love cheesecake in almost any form, but I don’t think I’ve ever had pumpkin cheesecake before. Robert’s looks wonderful, though.

    Are you going to do this again for Christmas? Our son usually makes a fried turkey for us for both Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    Have a nice day, George!

    Looks like you were well fed.The turkey looks delicious.

  9. Rose Says:

    That turkey looks delicious…and I don’t even like turkey. Though I might like it…both my daughters will eat them if they are fixed like this but don’t like turkey otherwise. The cheesecake is too pretty to eat!

    I think the best turkey I ever ate was deep fried at a friend’s house for an Xmas party. Wouldn’t work too well at our condo though.
