I'm thinking of buying a Popeye's Cajun Style Turkey this year

Feeling super lazy, unmotivated, and it looks fast and easy.

Plus sides.

What do you think?

R3, watch the video at R1.

It's a normal sized turkey.

It actually looks like a lot of meat.

The guy just took it out of the plastic bag, put it in a roasting pan for 2 hours, and it was done.

Nothing easier than that on Thanksgiving.

Here's another good review.

However, they make a special point to view the sodium content.

Is 630 mg of sodium per serving, a lot?

Do you guys cover your 🦃 in different marinades or seasonings then? I'm trying to figure out what work goes into preparing a 🦃 over there.

Over here, in the UK, we just tend to salt and pepper, maybe a little butter under the skin and then put them in the oven.

Your ovens are big over there too!

If buying factory bred poultry, over-seasoning to disguise the tasteless flesh is always wise.

by Anonymousreply 811/20/2020

Another good review, but I'd just skip to the part where the turkey is on the plate, and she's talking about the taste.

For a little more, you could have something that hadn't been fed growth hormones or walked a day in its life, that actually needed minimal seasoning....

When she took the turkey out of the bag at R9, it almost looked pre-cooked.

No wonder it only take 2.5 hours to cook.

How strange that it's shot up with a salty brine, pre-cooked, and frozen. But I guess that's how it goes with processed and packaged foods.

R10 Turkey farmers have a problem in the UK ATM, because we don't know yet if people will be allowed to have friends and family over for Christmas, or if restaurants will be open for dining, which is when turkey is eaten over here.

So producers who are breeding larger birds are worried that they won't be able to sell them over here.

Absolutely love Popeyes...it’s my guilty pleasure. Those sides are the best. I swear they put cocaine in the green beans. Let us know how it all turns out, OP.

Honey, I once bought and ate tofurkey for Thanksgiving and I'm not even vegetarian.

I admit: I have a problem.

My Thanksgiving this year may be macaron based.

I just have to find some fucking pumpkin macarons. Just one. Definitely a pecan one. Possibly chocolate though I prefer the fruit and nut ones.

And if they already have turon in the market, I'm going to snarf my weight in one for sure.

by Anonymousreply 1511/21/2020

R7 It’s honestly not that difficult. I make a compound butter with sage, thyme and a bit of rosemary and slather under the skin of the turkey breast. I fill the neck and cavity with cut oranges lemons onion and more herbs. Then I roast. I brined it once but it was saltier than I liked.

The trickiest part of the whole meal is timing the oven space between the turkey and the sides. I make many of those ahead.

I find placing the turkey on a good vegetable trivet adds to the roasting and tenderness of the bird.

Can you just roll up to the drive thru window and say yo give me a turkey or is this a pre order type situation?

Apparently you can just walk in and ask for a Cajun turkey. You can buy it on the spot and throw it in the freezer when you get home.

Not sure if you can buy it at the drive-thru window, but I don't see why not.

They say you can pre-order, but the lady in the video at R9 said to just buy it early and freeze it, because they usually run out of them by Thanksgiving. Plus, it takes 2-3 days to thaw out in the refrigerator.

I like that it's pre-cooked. You don't have to worry about cooking the turkey through.

People really seem to like it. However, I think that could be because of all the sodium they inject it with, as well as the ton of spices. That's probably what makes it so addictive. Like most fast food.

Both the girl at R9 and the guy at R17 made the exact same observation about the flavor. They said that it just takes like Popeye's chicken, but on a turkey. I'm interpreting that as "this tastes like fast food Thanksgiving."

You don't have to wash it, clean it, or season it.

Just take it out of bag and stick it in the oven.

You might not even have to cut it, because it just falls apart. lol

by Anonymousreply 3111/21/2020

Has it been steam cooked then?

by Anonymousreply 3211/21/2020

Good question, R32.

Not sure what Popeye's does to it before packaging, but every single person said that their turkey very nearly fell apart.

I wonder what makes it do that? Maybe being pre-cooked, and then cooked again?

by Anonymousreply 3311/22/2020

I couldn’t find a turkey locally, all sold out 😔.

I will have to make due with a honey baked ham turkey, I just hope they are as fall off the bone tender as Popeyes.

What's a ham turkey R34?

Is it ham or turkey?

Wow, it's only Monday!

R36, are you on crack?

by Anonymousreply 3711/23/2020

R35 It’s a full size turkey from the honey baked ham co. You have to pre order it since all they have in store is spiral sliced turkey breast.

Funny story, thanks to OP I decided to try the Popeyes turkey so I checked the app and the website with no luck. I live in a large city so I started calling around and nobody had it, one place answered the phone with the following “ thank you for calling Popeyes on so and so street, we DO NOT have any turkey at this time, but such and such location does, now how can I help you?”

The other location they mentioned had just sold out.

A co-worker swears by Popeyes Turkeys. Every Thanksgiving! This year she said they were harder to find, since not every store does them. She had to drive over an hour to fetch it. Wait too long and you fat whores will be SOL

I'm roasting a French, red label, yellow chicken with sweet potatoes and garlic. Maybe beets. No gravy. Butter or perhaps white sauce and Cumberland sauce.
