Wild Turkey


Be sure to read up on Information on the First Thanksgiving. This was a celebration of the first harvest had by Pilgrims in the US, and was a festival with the 50 or so Pilgrims plus just under 100 native Americans. The food therefore was a mix of what the English settlers knew about and/or brought with them, plus what the native Americans brought in to the feast.

The Native Americans were great hunters, and wild turkey was definitely a favorite of the native Americans and of the English. This simple recipe approximates the type of meal they would have had.

1 bone-in wild turkey breast
8 oz honey Dijon salad dressing

The salad dressing gathers together many of the spices the settlers would have used. The turkey breast should be under 2 pounds. Place turkey in a large resealable plastic bag; add salad dressing. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate overnight, turning occasionally.

Drain and discard marinade. Grill turkey, covered, over indirect medium heat for 45-55 minutes or until juices run clear and a meat thermometer reads 170 degrees.
