Let the holiday countdown begin ! November 1st is a date that makes me crave Turkey , ham , and all the yummy Thanksgiving / Christmas dinner comfort foods.

My new recipe for Oven Bag Cajun Herb Bone in Turkey breast is everything – and I know that you are going to enjoy it. There is no need to make a whole Turkey if you have a smaller family or are hosting a small gathering – make a well seasoned Turkey breast instead .

I used the Turkey drippings to make a nice, tasty gravy and it was the perfect topping to my moist Turkey breast. I served this with mashed potatoes, Mac n cheese , and garlicky green beans – all of the side dish recipes are available on the blog as well so check them out !

Seasonings and herbs used
I used a bone in ,6 pound Turkey breast – make sure you remove the giblets and gravy packet when taking it out of the packaging (unless you want to use that for your gravy instead of making your own )
