Thanksgiving is, without a doubt, the best holiday to stuff your face with delicious food, but eating turkey cooked the same way every time can get a tad boring, which is why you need to try wrapping your turkey in bacon this year.

Turkey and bacon is a classic combination, so it's no surprise that the people at Delish created this mouth-watering recipe.

You’ll start this process like you would if you were cooking the turkey in the oven the normal way, including stuffing the cavity with onions, thyme and anything else you want to add.

The bacon comes into play once the turkey is nice and seasoned.

You could just lay the strips of bacon over the turkey, but for a more festive look, Delish recommends weaving the strips of bacon to make a more pleasing design.

All you have to do is put that big old bird in the oven for about three hours (of course -- this depends on the size), and you’ll want to check it a few times to make sure the bacon isn’t burning, and you are all set.
