Turkey (With a Ghanaian twist)


Last Thursday the 26th was thanksgiving day in America and I spent most of the day cleaning up and cooking. One of the highlights of my day was baking my well seasoned Thanksgiving turkey. It is very similar to my Bongo chicken recipe, that’s why I added Ghanaian twist to the title of this recipe.

Try this turkey out with a plate of rice, Jollof , potatoes, or a dish of your choice.

      Hi Glorria & Emanuele, thanks for your question. Adobo seasoning is made of salt, granulated garlic, citric acid, tropical lemon flavor, black pepper, oregano, and turmeric.

    Adobo like the Mexican Adobo? I look forward to try to have some heat to that turkey next year! It’s going to kick a notch the party!
