Recipe: To Roast A Turkey

Make a force-meat of grated bread-crumbs, minced suet, sweet marjoram, grated lemon-peel, nutmeg, pepper, salt, and beaten yolk of egg. You may add some grated cold HAM. Light some writing paper, and singe the hairs from the skin of the TURKEY.

Reserve the neck, liver, and gizzard for the gravy. Stuff the craw of the TURKEY with the force-meat, of which there should be enough made to form into balls for frying, laying them round the TURKEY when it is dished. Dredge it with flour, and roast it before a clear brisk fire, basting it with cold lard. Towards the last, set the TURKEY nearer to the fire, dredge it again very lightly with flour, and baste it with butter. It will require, according to its size, from two to three hours roasting.

Make the gravy of the giblets cut in pieces, seasoned, and stewed for two hours in a very little water; thicken it with a spoonful of browned flour, and stir into it the gravy from the dripping-pan, having first skimmed off the fat.

A TURKEY should be accompanied by HAM or TONGUE. Serve up with it mushroom-Sauce. Have stewed cranberries on the table to eat with it. Do not help any one to the legs, or drum-sticks as they are called.

TURKEYs are sometimes stuffed entirely with PIGEONS-meat. Small cakes of this meat should then be fried, and laid round it.

To bone a TURKEY, you must begin with a very sharp knife at the top of the wings, and scrape the flesh loose from the bone without dividing or cutting it to pieces. If done carefully and dexterously, the whole mass of flesh may be separated from the bone, so that you can take hold of the head and draw out the entire skeleton at once. A large quantity of force-meat having been prepared, stuff it hard into the TURKEY, restoring it by doing so to its natural form, filling out the body, breast, wings and legs, so as to resemble their original shape when the bones were in. roast or bake it; pouring a glass of port wine into the gravy. A boned TURKEY is frequently served up cold, covered with lumps of currant jelly; slices of which are laid round the dish.

Any sort of poultry or game may be boned and stuffed in the same manner,
A cold TURKEY that has not been boned is sometimes sent to table larded all over the breast with slips of fat bacon, drawn through the flesh with a larding needle, and arranged in regular form.

Recipe: Turkey Hashed

Cut the remnants of TURKEY from a previous dinner into pieces of equal size. Boil the bones in a quart of water, until the quart is reduced to a pint; then take out the bones, and to the liquor in which they were boiled add TURKEY gravy, if you have any, or white stock, or a small piece of butter with salt and pepper; let the liquor thus prepared boil up once; then put in the pieces of TURKEY, dredge in a little flour, give it one boil-up, and serve in a hot dish.

Recipe: Turkey Warmed Over

Pieces of cold TURKEY or CHICKEN may be warmed up with a little butter in a frying pan; place it on a warm platter, surround it with pieces of small thick slices of bread or BISCUIT halved, first dipping them in hot salted water; then place the platter in a warm oven with the door open. Have already made the following gravy to pour over all:—

Into the frying pan put a large spoonful of butter, one or two cupfuls of milk, and any gravy that may be left over. Bring it to a boil; then add sufficient flour, wet in a little cold milk or water, to make it the consistency of cream. Season with salt, pepper and add a little of the dark meat chopped very fine. Let the Sauce cook a few moments, then pour over the BISCUIT and fowl. This will be found a really nice dish.

Recipe: Tomatoes with Cheese Stuffing

The addition of cheese to the stuffing used in stuffed tomatoes means added flavor, as well as nutritive value in the form of protein, the food substance in which the tomatoes themselves are lacking. The bread crumbs used for the stuffing supply a large amount of carbohydrate, so that the completed dish, besides being a very attractive one, contains all the food principles in fairly large quantities. Stuffed tomatoes may be served as the main dish in a light meal or as a vegetable dish in a heavy meal.

(Sufficient to Serve Six)

  •  6 tomatoes
  •  1 c. bread crumbs
  •  1 c. grated cheese
  •  1/2 tsp. salt
  •  1/8 tsp. pepper
  •  2 Tb. butter
  •  1/4 c. hot water

Select medium-sized tomatoes and hollow out the centers. Mix the crumbs, cheese, salt, pepper, butter, and hot water with the pulp from the centers of the tomatoes. Fill the tomatoes with this stuffing, place in a pan, and bake in a moderate oven until the tomato can be Pierced easily with a fork. Serve hot.

Recipe: Turkey Scallop

Pick the meat from the bones of cold TURKEY and chop it fine. Put a layer of bread crumbs on the bottom of a buttered dish, moisten them with a little milk, then put in a layer of TURKEY with some of the filling, and cut small pieces of butter over the top; sprinkle with pepper and salt; then another layer of bread crumbs, and so on until the dish is nearly full; add a little hot water to the gravy left from the TURKEY and pour over it; then take two eggs, two tablespoonfuls of milk, one of melted butter, a little salt and cracker crumbs as much as will make it thick enough to spread on with a knife; put bits of butter over it, and cover with a plate. Bake three-quarters of an hour. Ten minutes before serving, remove the plate and let it brown.

Recipe: Boiled Turkey

Prepare as you would for baking or roasting; fill with an Oyster stuffing, made as the above. Tie the legs and wings close to the body, place in salted boiling water with the breast downward; skim it often and boil about two hours, but not till the skin breaks. Serve with Oyster or celery Sauce. Boil a nicely pickled piece of salt PORK, and serve at table a thin slice to each plate. Some prefer bacon or HAM instead of PORK.
Some roll the TURKEY in a cloth dipped in flour. If the liquor is to be used afterwards for SOUP, the cloth imparts an unpleasant flavor. The liquor can be saved and made into a nice SOUP for the next day’s dinner, by adding the same seasoning as for CHICKEN SOUP.
