On Friday, ABC7 posted a recipe syndicated from Reynolds Kitchens for a “Hot Turkey in an Oven Bag” just in time for Thanksgiving. I’m sure you’re wondering what a “Hot Turkey in an Oven Bag” is. Essentially, the recipe is a turkey covered in crushed up Flamin’ Hot Cheetos.

People’s reactions have been mixed, but most people agree this is gross. Thanksgiving is not the time for experimenting. Thanksgiving is spicy enough with family political debates—this turkey is just unnecessary.
One person even went as far as to write a little poem about their disgust for this recipe: “I would not eat this on a boat. I could not have this in a moat. I will not try it on a train. I will not taste it, it’s insane. It is not cute, it seems too quirky,” they wrote. “I will not eat your Hot Cheetos Turkey.”

“Fixed this … Hot Cheetos turkey declared a human rights violation,” another person declared.

But one Twitter user shined a light of positivity to remind us that we’re all just trying to get through this holiday season. “Do whatever makes you happy. If that’s Hot Cheetos on your turkey, go for it,” said Erin Ruberry. “We’re all just doing our best to get by.”

Would you try the Hot Cheetos turkey? Although I’m positive it would be gross, I also wouldn’t not try it.
