Potatoes are roasted in cajun seasonings, then mashed with cream cheese, & butter in this delicious Cajun Mashed Potatoes recipe, served with Cajun Turkey!
It’s day two of Thanksgiving Week on the blog, and it just so happens to be #TurkeyTuesday! Ok, I actually just made Turkey Tuesday up, but I think we should totally make it a thing! 😉
From Turkey Meatballs to Turkey Tostadas to Turkey Soup, I love sharing recipes with Jennie-O Turkey on the blog! For Thanksgiving this year, I was really excited to try their Oven Ready Cajun Style Turkey!
It’s so easy to make, with no thawing required! Simply remove it from the outer packaging, cut a few small slits in the cooking bag and pop it in the oven in a roasting pan!
All of the delicious Cajun seasonings are already rubbed on the turkey in the cooking bag, so that’s literally all you have to do!
While the turkey is roasting for about 4 hours, you’ll have plenty of time to prepare these Oven Roasted Cajun Mashed Potatoes!
Instead of boiling the potatoes, like traditional mashed potatoes, these Cajun Mashed Potatoes are made by roasting the potatoes, tossed in cajun seasonings, then mashing them with cream cheese, butter and heavy cream, to create the most flavorful mashed potatoes with a delicious & velvety texture!
- 3 lbs russet potatoes (peeled & cubed)
- 6 cloves garlic
- ¼ cup olive oil
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- ½ tsp oregano
- ½ tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp paprika
- ½ tsp cayenne pepper
- ½ tsp thyme leaves
- ½ cup butter (at room temperature)
- 4 oz cream cheese (cubed) (at room temperature)
- 2 cups heavy cream (at room temperature)
Preheat the oven to 425°F.
Toss the potatoes and garlic with the olive oil, black pepper, kosher salt, oregano, onion powder, paprika, cayenne pepper and thyme leaves.
Spread the potatoes into an even layer on a foil-lined baking sheet.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until potatoes are fork-tender.
Transfer the potatoes to a large mixing bowl, add the butter, cream cheese and heavy cream. Use an electric hand mixture to mash the potatoes until smooth and creamy.
And now I present to you the most flavorful mashed potatoes ever!
Serve these Cajun Mashed Potatoes with Jennie-O Cajun Roasted Turkey, which also comes with a package of gravy, perfect for pouring on top of the turkey and potatoes!
