Traeger Turkey with Cajun cream sauce is a holiday worthy meal, but also comes together in just minutes for an easy weeknight meal!

This would be a great option for a Thanksgiving dinner if you had a small crowd.

Turkey breast tenderloins are so juicy and when cooking them on the pellet grill they get a slight kiss of wood fired flavor.
