Thanksgiving

SheWhoMustBeObeyed put on quite a spread.
It was a real conundrum trying to coordinate
cooking the monster turkey and duck and
dressing
. Everything was delicious.



This is the one day of the year that I
wish we had TV. I'd love to sit around fat
and stupid watching football all afternoon.

"We made Duck and Dressing yesterday to go along with our turkey. No ducks left. It was great."

looks yummy!

That's Phil Robertson's Duck and Dressing. I cooked it in a turkey roasting pan. You boil the ducks for about 2.5 hours. When they are done, you take the broth and add it to a mixture of cornbread, hotdog buns, and saltine crackers that have been crumbled to a fine consistency. You add sauteed green onions, celery, and bell pepper along with some evaporated milk, beaten eggs, and sage. Brush the ducks with melted butter and then spice them with Tony Chaceres or something equivalent. You bake the whole thing for another 25-30 minutes. It's a lot of dressing, but it is really good.

You can watch Phil make this (it's a hoot) on the special features of DuckMen 8 video. www.duckcommander.com.

Whoops. Your second comment hadn't appeared before I posted my answer. This can be an odd way to communicate.

I will if I can find a deep fat fryer. SheWhoMustBeObeyed wants a kitchen one for french fries, but I think a turkey size fryer would be better.

I showed two of my boys your pictures and they thought it looked really good. I'm always game to try something new. Last year, I made duck gumbo and an etoufee.

i have a fry daddy and i new that would be too small. i have a turkey size fryer and i new that would be too large. so i went to wal-mart and spent $40 on a medium size fryer that we could also use in the kitchen when we have a bunch of people over for fish frys. so now i have 3 "deep fat fryers." i think the new one is a rival. it took quite some time to get to 375 but when it finally got there it did a great job.
