Masterbuilt Fried Turkey Thanksgiving Giveaway

Time’s up!

The winner of the Masterbuilt Indoor Electric Turkey Fryer Giveaway is:

#1216 Andrea

Congratulations Andrea! I’ve sent you an email. Enjoy your Masterbuilt Fried Turkey Thanksgiving!

Just in time for Thanksgiving, I’ve got a fun giveaway today from Masterbuilt for everything you need for a Fried Turkey Thanksgiving! Frying a turkey in hot oil definitely calls for caution, but fortunately Masterbuilt developed the Butterball Indoor Electric Turkey Fryer to achieve a perfect fried turkey with peace of mind. I had the pleasure of sampling this turkey last May at BlogHer Food in Atlanta, and I still can’t stop thinking about it. It was so rich, incredibly moist, and packed with flavor. So delicious! I knew immediately that I wanted to share this giveaway with you guys!

Check out this Cajun Fried Turkey recipe from John McLemore’s “Dadgum That’s Good” cookbook to see how easy it is to quickly fry up a turkey for Thanksgiving. The winner will receive everything he or she needs to recreate this recipe!

UPDATE: I made this Cajun Fried Turkey for Thanksgiving and it was fantastic! The fryer and recipe were so easy to use and follow. And it cooks so quickly! I love knowing that I could easily whip up another one in less than an hour. This juicy, spicy turkey was definitely the star of our Thanksgiving table this year.

I really really love the whole meal! Each part makes the whole thing so delicious! But if I had to choose one thing, it would be pumpkin pie with caramel whipped cream!

Marlene November 18, 2011 at 9:00 am

I lovvvve the TURKEY!

Morgan M November 18, 2011 at 10:01 am

Kim November 18, 2011 at 2:14 am

I’m obsessed with sweet potatoes on Thanksgiving.

Jenny November 18, 2011 at 2:48 am

My favorite is the TURKEY for sure! With casseroles of all kinds being the runner up.

Amy November 18, 2011 at 2:53 am

I love pumpkin pie!! And any kind of casserole! <3

Kim Carnow November 18, 2011 at 2:55 am

The Turkey and the mashed potatoes, gravy, and fresh cranberry sauce. And I can’t forget the dessert… Fresh baked pumpkin pie with whipped cream!

Terri Ballard November 18, 2011 at 2:57 am

My down south Sweet Potato Pies

Kristin M. November 18, 2011 at 3:05 am

My favorite dish for Thanksgiving is a tie between my mothers sour cream and cheese chunked mash potatoes and my Uncles baked potato soup. Yum!

jeff norman November 18, 2011 at 3:06 am

the garlic chedder (lumpy) mashed potatoes has got to be the best

Charlotte Mercer November 18, 2011 at 3:07 am

My fave turkey dish would have to be Turkey Divan. It’s one of the recipes I love to make with leftover Thanksgiving turkey and my family loves it, too. Of course, I always make sure there’s still enough left over for sandwiches! :D

Scott ☺ November 18, 2011 at 3:10 am

Hands down, cornbread dressing and giblet gravy!

Charlotte Mercer November 18, 2011 at 3:11 am

Oops! I thought it said, ‘Turkey Dish’! LOL!!! Now my eyes are going, too! :D

My favorite Thanksgiving dish would have to be the Waldorf Apple Salad my mom makes. It’s a Thanksgiving tradition in our family and it’s now down to just her and I that eats it. We don’t care, though. That’s just more for us!! ;o)

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Sher November 18, 2011 at 3:16 am

Praline Sweet Potato casserole and my mother’s homemade dressing. Yum. Thanks for the opportunity to win this neat prize!

Sommer@ASpicyPerspective November 18, 2011 at 3:20 am

Oooooo, I want that! I adore sweet potatoes, roasted.

Jill C November 18, 2011 at 3:20 am

The fryer looks so fun! I’ve never cooked one like that, but it sounds like it would be delicious! My favorite holiday dish? Sweet Potatoes, with marshmallows toasted on top of course. Makes my mouth water just thinking out it right now!

Anne Cravens November 18, 2011 at 3:26 am

It’s got to be cornbread and sausage stuffing! I just saw a sweet potato gratin though that I’m dying to try this Thanksgiving!

Goat Girl November 18, 2011 at 3:28 am

Do I have to pick one! LOL then it’s cornbread stuffing. Thanks for the contest. Happy Thanksgiving!

Jean Punt November 18, 2011 at 3:30 am

My very favorite Thanksgiving dish has to be the day after….when we make a
‘hash’ out of the leftovers….especially the dressing and gravy..added to the moist
pieces of dark and white turkey..heated perfectly and served with cranberry sauce.
And, of course, that wonderful pumpkin pie topped with real whipped cream.

kathleen.summers November 18, 2011 at 3:31 am

Wow, that is a crazy awesome giveaway! My fave dish at Thanksgiving? The turkey! I’ve always wanted to do a fried turkey. Sounds divine!

Danielle November 18, 2011 at 3:34 am

Kimchi stuffing!!!!!! It really is good guys!

Alix November 18, 2011 at 3:47 am

Stuffing – always the stuffing!!!

Alison November 18, 2011 at 3:49 am

Mashed potatoes and gravy!

Andrea Watters November 18, 2011 at 3:54 am

My favorite Thanksgiving dish is a pineapple casserole. The combination of pineapple, sharp cheddar and crushed Ritz crackers sounds strange but it is delicious!!! Even the little ones love it.. I’ve found the grownups are more willing to try it if they don’t know what’s in it beforehand 

Brian November 18, 2011 at 4:01 am

Stuffing is always a treat at Thanksgiving. I remember toasting bread for Mom when I was young and then cubing it so she could make the stuffing!

carmel atanasu-teeters November 18, 2011 at 4:05 am

Do I have to pick just one? Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday….. not only for the meaning of the day but also for the wonderful dishes of the day. My faves are all the vegie casseroles that I get to sample at my workplace get together, our church covered dish celebration and all the blogs that I am subscribed to!!! I am trying a new zucchini bake this weekend.

Deb November 18, 2011 at 4:12 am

The cornbread dressing is my favorite. I’ve heard great things about these cookers.

Jessica November 18, 2011 at 4:24 am

I am way fancy…canned cranberry sauce!

Janet Thwaits November 18, 2011 at 4:27 am

My favorite Thanksgiving dish is a homemade mincemeat pic. I make my own
mincemeat and it is good!

Pam November 18, 2011 at 4:41 am

Can’t give just one…has to be dressing and cranberry relish! YUMMO!

Londra Fleming November 18, 2011 at 4:42 am

Turkey of course!

katrina joseph November 18, 2011 at 4:45 am

hands down………stuffing!!!

Leslie Kiley November 18, 2011 at 4:47 am

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday by far! Everyone comes home and it is a quiet fun time with the family! My favorite dish has to be the Butterball that we have every year! We always try to find one with a big breast cause only one of our family members like the dark meat! I really love everything we have and wish we had it more often. I have always wanted to try a fried Turkey so maybe if I win I will get to!!!

J Snyder November 18, 2011 at 4:57 am

My Mom’s fruit salad and Graham cracker pie would be my favorites.

Brandy November 18, 2011 at 4:58 am

Min is a big scoop of turkey & mashed potatoes dunked in gravy…….o yummy I can’s wait for Thanksgiving!!
Thanks for the giveaway!

Amy November 18, 2011 at 4:58 am

Stuffing. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Tammie November 18, 2011 at 5:02 am

This is SUCH a hard question! My favorite dish would be candied yams!

pam November 18, 2011 at 5:05 am

dressing, yummy

Megan November 18, 2011 at 5:11 am

Sweet Potato Casserole. I make it every year and I love it! My runner up would be left over turkey, mayo and cranberry sauce sandwhiches!

Cathy barrows November 18, 2011 at 5:11 am

Southern cornbread dressing all the way with gravy made from the juices of the turkey. That will be half of my plate…yummy!

Maureen November 18, 2011 at 5:11 am

So many hard choices! Probably the stuffing, try two different ones each year.

Jane Crawford November 18, 2011 at 5:14 am

Late that night, turkey sandwich on real fresh bread with Kraft’s mayonnaise and my Momma’s cranberry sauce recipe.

Reagan Tunstall November 18, 2011 at 5:16 am

The turkey is always my favorite but my favorite side is sweet potatoes with marshmallows!
What a great giveaway! fingers crossed!

Jodie M. November 18, 2011 at 5:16 am

Mine is sweet potato souffle with praline topping…yummy!

Maria M. November 18, 2011 at 5:19 am

The Turkey with Gravy.

Leslie November 18, 2011 at 5:25 am


Yvonne November 18, 2011 at 5:26 am

Sweet Potato Casserole!

Lisa B November 18, 2011 at 5:29 am

My Grandmother would always make a meat stuffing with onions, cloves, and cinnamon. Just say meat stuffing to anyone in my family and they just can’t help but smile.

Rene November 18, 2011 at 5:30 am

Besides the Turkey……..My daughter’s apple pie! She makes it with a recipe that was handed down several generations on her husband’s side. THE Best Pie Crust EVER!!

Jean November 18, 2011 at 5:32 am

So many delicious dishes to pick from for a Thanksgiving favorite. I think mine would have to be sour cherry pie. After the filling and heavenly turkey with all the fixings, the tartness of the pie is a perfect ending.
Did I mention I also love the Turkey, stuffing, mashies, squash, green beans, creamed onions, orange/cranberry relish, homemade butterhorn rolls…………
I really love it all………

charlotte November 18, 2011 at 5:32 am

My favorite dish on Turkey Day would be squash casserole! Great giveaway!

Wendy November 18, 2011 at 5:33 am

My favorite has got to be stuffing but turkey comes in second. Would love to try deep fried turkey!

Barb November 18, 2011 at 5:33 am

My Mom’s Pumpkin Pie with vanilla ice cream- yum!
I’d LOVE to win this! Thanks for the chance!

GretchenP November 18, 2011 at 5:37 am

my mom makes squash with tons of butter & brown sugar! i indulge once per year! :) thanks for the giveaway!

Susan November 18, 2011 at 5:38 am

I really love the turkey. It’s always been the best part to me.

Jessica November 18, 2011 at 5:39 am

Fave dish is by far my family’s cabin turkey. It’s basically fried turkey fingers. Sooo yummy! And this would help my husband and I continue the tradition!

Mary November 18, 2011 at 5:46 am

I love the stuffing best especially with gravy! Yum Yum Gobble Gobble

Amanda November 18, 2011 at 5:47 am

Stuffing :)

Sandy F November 18, 2011 at 5:48 am

I love all of it, but a favorite would be Blueberry Salad because my mom always made it and it reminds me of her.

Candice November 18, 2011 at 5:50 am

my favorite thanksgiving dish is either homemade mashed potatoes or homemade creamed spinach! They are always the first to go in my home on thanksgiving

Jenny November 18, 2011 at 5:50 am

Dressing and gravy!

nicole p November 18, 2011 at 5:52 am

Sweet potato casserole with pecan topping

Peggy November 18, 2011 at 5:52 am

I can remember making stuffing with my grandma. We bought bread, cubed it up,set it on top of her fridge to dry for a day, then made it in the am in the in a white graniteware roaster(I now have this). So Stuffing would have to be my favorite because it brings tears to my eyes just writing this. She gave me my love for cooking and hopefully someday I can pass it on to my grandkids.
PS: my HUBBY would love to fry a turkey and this would be the best!
LOVE your blog

amanda @ fake ginger November 18, 2011 at 5:53 am

The dressing! I look forward to it all year!

Liz (Little Bitty Bakes) November 18, 2011 at 5:54 am

Hmm, I really like to mix my stuffing and corn into my mashed potatoes… I think that’s my favorite “dish mix” :)

Melissa P. @Mel4Him November 18, 2011 at 5:57 am

My favorite Thanksgiving Dish is butternut squash. A table without squash is not a Thanksgiving table. : )

kathy November 18, 2011 at 5:57 am

My favorite THANKSGIVING meal is the “meal” between those who are present. Giving thanks for those who are so special to us and sharing that time around the table completes the THanksgiving meal for me. Of course alittle squash casserole gets the conversation started. ha

DebiJ November 18, 2011 at 5:57 am

This is our first year to travel out of state and not host Thanksgiving so I will miss making sweet potato casserole.

Wini November 18, 2011 at 5:58 am

The Turkey breast is my favorite dish – so juicy and full of flavor! But it has a very, very close runner-up with my mom’s giblet stuffing! It is so good too!
Thank you for the chance to win!
Hugs, Wini

Dale @ Tradeurbeads November 18, 2011 at 5:58 am

My favorite dish(s) is pumpkin pie the next day for breakfast and Turkey sandwiches for lunch! Then the rush of cooking is over and I can just enjoy my day off with my family.

Tracy November 18, 2011 at 6:00 am

Mashed Potatoes – YUM!!

Robin Strickland November 18, 2011 at 6:07 am

What’s my favorite Thanksgiving dish? My mom makes homemade stuffing every year (she’s been doing it for 40+ years) and it is so yummy! The combination of the flavor of Sage & cornbread are awesome!

Emma November 18, 2011 at 6:07 am

Love some pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving!! :-) But, I love to graze on all the goodies all day long!

Marilyn November 18, 2011 at 6:09 am

Oh! I love the fryer. We have one of the “old-fashioned”ones that uses the gas burner and a giant pot; need to use a thermometer; messy and dangerous. We do it because it is delicious so it is my favorite part of Thanksgiving. Perhaps need to save up for one of these!

Tracy Robert November 18, 2011 at 6:09 am

I would have to say chicken and noodles on top of mashed potatoes.
Always a Thanksgiving staple for us. Happy Turkey Day to all!

sue November 18, 2011 at 6:09 am

My favorite Thanksgiving dish is a family one called “spergetta”. It’s spaghetti pasta, green peppers, cheddar cheese and a light custard that holds it all together when baked. YUM.

Colleen Dixon November 18, 2011 at 6:10 am

My mom’s lumpy mashed potatoes! I’m getting hungry just thinking about it. :)

Tiffini November 18, 2011 at 6:13 am

My favorite dish for Thanksgiving is a toss up between the stuffing and the sweet potatoes! Yumm!!

Melissa Reuss November 18, 2011 at 6:13 am

My favorite would have to be the stuffing. I don’t make it any other time of the year, so it is extra special on Thanksgiving.

Nicole Barczak November 18, 2011 at 6:16 am

Mmmm… I love the whole meal! HAHA! I think I’d have to say though the turkey and stuffing. Not something we have often (or at all?!) during the year so it is a delish combination!

pris November 18, 2011 at 6:18 am

all time favorite has to be stuffing starring pecans, apples and sausage! happy day.

karen November 18, 2011 at 6:23 am

For me, it’s the whole shebang, my family always expects me to make my traditional turkey, dressing and loaded-with-cranberries on a multi-grain bun sandwich. yum. but all the great food wouldn’t be the same without my family all packed around the table.

Kim Tracy November 18, 2011 at 6:25 am

I would have to say my mom’s homemade stuffing. I wait all year for Thanksgiving to have some!

Crystal November 18, 2011 at 6:28 am

My mom’s pineapple casserole! Yum-yum!

Paulette Stewart November 18, 2011 at 6:29 am

Oooooh, it’s most definitely my mom’s sweet potato casserole! All that buttery, brown-sugar goodness, topped off with walnuts. I could eat it and eat it and eat it til the turkeys come home.


Jenell November 18, 2011 at 6:31 am

I love everything about Thanksgiving. My favorite would have to be stuffing. And a leftover turkey sandwich the next day with stuffing and cranberry sauce on it!

Julie November 18, 2011 at 6:32 am

My mom’s homemade dressing….simply the best!

Karen November 18, 2011 at 6:33 am

The main attraction…turkey! One of my favorite foods!

Karen November 18, 2011 at 6:33 am

My favorite Thanksgiving dish is Aunt Marion’s Sweet Potato Casserole with Jack Daniels Whiskey in it!! Yum!! – Karen

Francesca November 18, 2011 at 6:34 am

I love cranberry sauce!

Valerie November 18, 2011 at 6:35 am

My favorite dish is the turkey dressing.

Maria November 18, 2011 at 6:35 am

I love all the Thanksgiving dishes, but I think my Mom’s dressing is my favorite.

Thank you!

katie lynn November 18, 2011 at 6:35 am

I love EVERYTHING about Thanksgiving dinner, but my favorite would be my grandma’s wedding soup. She only makes it once a year. Yummm!

Kathi November 18, 2011 at 6:37 am

Hasbrown casserrole is my favorite Thanksgiving dish!

janet tobler November 18, 2011 at 6:38 am

instead of my husband making the fried turkey,
i could make the fried turkey with this new device.
not as scary as the other one to use.

thanks for the opportunity.

Michelle C. November 18, 2011 at 6:38 am

So I have this thing for jellied cranberry sauce. Yes, the kind that is shaped exactly like the can it was in when you slosh it onto a serving dish. But, that’s not really a side dish…is it?

I think my absolute favorite thing about Thanksgiving dinner are the sweet potatoes. I make a creamy version (it’s almost custard-like) and I add in pecans and gobs of brown sugar. The topping is sort of like a crumble (brown sugar, flour, butter, more pecans!) and, of course, I have to have marshmallows, too. I swear, it’s more like a dessert. Nom nom nom!

Thanks for the chance to win! :)

Addy November 18, 2011 at 6:39 am

My favorite part of Thanksgiving g is stayi g up super late an cooking. The. Est is the dressing because I use my aunt’s recipe. I also love the ham be ause for years my dad would pick off the ham since he was such a control freak in the kitchen.

Audra November 18, 2011 at 6:39 am

So many things to choose from-but if I could only choose one it would be my sister’s cornbread dressing!

Patti W November 18, 2011 at 6:39 am

My favorite Thanksgiving dish would be my aunt’s stuffing and turkey. We do a potluck and she always does the turkey. There is noone else in our family who makes it just like she does.

Lacey RW November 18, 2011 at 6:39 am

My favorite dish at Thanksgiving is a tie…sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, and dressing! YUM!
