Back by popular demand for you folks (I’m getting a number of calls and e-mail for it) and just in time for Thanksgiving is that famous recipe for roast wild turkey in sack that I love! It’s basic and hard to beat! Try it this Thanksgiving at your house! HAPPY TURKEY DAY!
Roast Wild Turkey in a Sack
Grease a brown paper bag inside with melted shortening. Brush turkey with melted shortening, salt and pepper. Make a pre-cooked dressing with oysters or mushrooms, and stuff bird. Fit turkey into the greased bag, twist end, and tie with string. Place in pan and bake in moderate oven (325 degrees) for 24 minutes per pound. When done, remove from oven but do not open sack for at least 20 minutes. This allows the wild turkey to absorb the steam for moister meat. Enjoy!
