"Turkey Nuggets" by Jason Con

As Magellan (and the rest of the rig) have made their travels across the country, I've asked that the guys add content not only in the form of the description of the hunts, but photos, stories they'd like to share, and recipes.  I have to say that so far the guys are hitting on all cylinders delivering everything they can.  On a personal note (and, it's still early in the season for most of us) this has been one of the most enjoyable duck seasons I've had in a while.

In any case, Jason wanted to pass along a simple turkey recipe that's sure to win over the hearts of anyone from fellow hunters, to wives...and even mother in laws.

I speak from personal experience that this recipe is great.  Jason cooked it for a group of us the night after he and I took our Merriams up in the mountains of New Mexico.

Turkey Nuggets

  1. Take wild turkey breast and cut into 2to3 in thin slices .
  2. Soak the slices in orange juice over night
  3. When ready to cook (next day), heat vegetable oil to approximately 325 degrees
  4. Mix 2 cups of milk and 1 beaten egg
  5. Place turkey slices in milk/egg mixture
  6. Place strips in seasoned flour (anything from Toni's, cayenne, salt/pepper, etc)
  7. FRY
It goes great with rice and tomato gravy.

THANKS Jason for the recipe, Justin
