Turkey Recipes

Well Turkey season is only 3 months away now. I am looking for some recipes to make those wild birds taste good. It seams like they always taste so dry. I would be willing to try any recipes. Thanks Mike

My favorite recipe which is pretty simple as well is to just baste the bird in a garlic butter spread. I let that soak in for a while, then I usually shove so apple and orange wedges inside the bird, sometimes some onion and just cook it like an normal thanksgiving bird. It adds flavor to it but not so much that you can't taste the natural flavor either.

My favorite turkey recipe is fried turkey breasts. Breast out the bird and cut the breasts into small "tender size pieces". Dip it in a milk and egg wash, then put it in your favorite seasoned flour mixture and fry it. Its almost as good as it gets and I prefer fried turkey breasts to chicken tenders.

As for the legs, i normally boil the crap out of them, a few hours on a stove top or about half an hour in a pressure cooker. Let it cool, pull the meat off the bone, then use them in a gumbo. I have a friend whose mom makes Turkey Salad with the legs after putting them in the pressure cooker, but I don't have that recipe.

I don't normally roast the whole bird b/c I don't like plucking birds.
It's a fact that 70 percent of the people who purchase heavier tackle do so with the categorical I just lost a huge snook! Einstein Hairdo.The other 30 percent have either Tarpon Fever or are sporting a hand cramped into a claw from a deepwater grouper.
