Best Wild Turkey Recipes


I have more than just wild turkey recipes, check out more links at the end of the page.

Before I give you my favorite recipes, I want to briefly explain to you the basics on prepping a wild turkey.

After you or your significant other bags the turkey, it needs to be washed well after drawing and skinning the bird. Do you want to roast it, deep fry or grill it?




HOW TO EASILY PLUCK A WILD TURKEY

For those of you that wish to try some of my wild turkey recipes and if you want to pluck your turkey I have some simple steps for doing so.

To loosen the feathers - heat a large pan of water until it is very hot and dunk the turkey in the water many times (I do it 15 times or so). If they are still hard to pull, repeat this process again. Pluck the bird just down to the legs and wings - because you will be removing them in the next step.

A lot of hunters just keep skinless, boneless breast meat too.

Using a game shears; you now can remove the head, wings and feet. Grab the entrails and pull them out. Place the turkey in a kitchen sink filled with very cold water to cool down the meat.

Wild Turkey Marinade Recipes


TURKEY MARINADE RECIPES

Sometimes I like to use Italian Dressing to marinate turkey, chicken, and steak, so here is a homemade dry mix you can make ahead and add oil and vinegar when ready to use. Great way to save money.

1-1/2 tsp 1 tsp homemade garlic powder
1 TBS onion powder
2 TBS oregano
1 TBS dried parsley
1 tsp dried basil
1 TBS white sugar
1 TBS kosher salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp dried celery leaves or flakes

Mix ingredients together and store in a tightly closed container in a cool and dry place.

To make dressing:
1/4 cup vinegar
1/2 cup canola oil
2 TBS water
2 TBS Italian Dressing Mix (above)

Shake well and chill the night before you use it.




Turkey Marinade

2 cups Homemade Italian Dressing (see above recipe)
1/2 cup cayenne pepper
1/2 cup freshly ground black pepper
2 TBS garlic powder
1 TBS onion powder

Whisk the above ingredients together. Place this marinade under the turkey skin, in the cavity and all over the entire bird. Inject the marinade into the turkey breast and legs.

Place the turkey in a NON SCENTED garbage bag and marinate the turkey in the refrigerator overnight. When you are ready to make one of my wild turkey recipes, remove from the bag and you are ready to go.

I make this wild turkey recipe in the winter; usually during the holidays, and I'll tell you why. I use leftover dressing for dumplings in this soup. It's delicious and so comforting.

I serve it with warm buttered homemade bread, and a crisp garden salad with my homemade salad dressing.


HOMEMADE WILD TURKEY SOUP RECIPE

wild turkey breast or leg quarters
3 celery ribs, sliced
3 carrots, peeled and thinly sliced
3/4 tsp garlic powder
3/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 cup fresh onion, grated (use cheese grater)


1 TBS dried parsley
1 TBS Better Than Bouillon Turkey or Chicken Base

5 to 6 cups leftover stuffing

Combine chicken, celery, carrots, garlic powder, onion powder, grated onion, parsley, Better Than Bouillon turkey base, salt and pepper in a dutch oven; fill almost to the top with water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer for 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until turkey is done and can easily be removed from the bone.

Remove turkey breast or leg quarters only and let stand until cool enough to handle. Pick the meat off the bone and place back into the stock pot.

Mix the stuffing with 4 egg whites and roll into small balls. Fry them in a skillet with 2 tablespoons of butter - until browned on all sides.

Drop the dumplings into the soup to heat through a few minutes before serving. Best served with crusty bread and butter.

You may add noodles if you wish.

BEST French Vanilla Cake Recipe

French Vanilla Cake

"I have made this cake 3 times in the past 4 weeks and have been asked to make it again for St. Paddy's day and Easter! I should have it down to a science by then. It is simply delicious and I have received rave reviews! Thanks so much for posting what I consider to be the perfect vanilla cake recipe."  by Michelle


Creamy Homemade Ice Cream Recipes

Ice Cream Recipes

"Being an ice-cream addict I searched the web and tried many recipes. Not wanting those with condensed milk I was able to cut the selection right down. And THEN I found your Homemade Vanilla Ice-Cream. Not having an ice-cream maker I had to use the instructions from other recipes and then added a pinch of salt (apparently that helps with the freezing!?) and 1 heaping Tbs of Custard Powder. I also added another egg yolk. And this is absolutely perfect. I never want to go back to bought ice-cream .... in fact I find it very disappointing. So thanks for your recipe - it is an absolute hit!" by Celia on Home Page
