Cooking turkey stuffed with oysters:

Step 1: Prepare the minced meat.

For the right and tasty stuffing we need a wonderful bacon. Bacon is a salted and fried meat product that is completely ready for use. But not in our case. Bacon is cut from the side of a young pig, in no case should it be cut from the lower extremities, bones of the pelvis, sternum or vertebra. Bacon can be prepared in three ways: in a pan, in the microwave, or in the oven. Each of these cases has its pros and cons. I choose in the pan, as it is faster. To do this, we must rinse and dry the bacon carefully, so that excess moisture is gone. After that, thinly cut into long strips and put in a pan, heat it and set the fire below average. The fat that will stand out from the bacon and will be instead of butter. The main thing is to ensure that it does not burn, then you should reduce the fire, or it would not be too much, then the fat can be drained from the pan. The bacon will be ready when it is covered with a golden crust and a little fried. After that, you can remove excess fat with a napkin. We put the bacon aside and in its place we send roasted finely chopped onions and celery root, which we previously peeled and washed. You do not need to add oil, as the fat from the bacon remains in the pan. Fry everything for 3-5 minutes. Then we add oysters, peeled and washed in cold water, table salt and ground pepper to taste. All cool, add crackers and grind in a blender until smooth.

Step 2: Stuff the turkey.

We buy fresh turkey, rinse thoroughly in running cold water and dry it on a kitchen towel. After that, we stuff its entrails with the minced meat obtained earlier. Sew the hole where the minced meat was put or just put the half of the lemon there. On top of it, rub it well with salt, pepper and any spices or spices to your taste. And we bind the legs together with culinary thread or simple natural fibers.

Step 3: Fry the turkey.

The oven must be preheated to a temperature of 200 degrees. Grease a baking sheet with butter and put the turkey there. As a side dish, you can immediately put around it peeled and chopped potatoes in 4 parts. Put in the oven and bake. At certain intervals, the potatoes can be watered with fat on top, which will stand out. I recommend baking for about one and a half to two hours. The turkey should be covered with a golden crust.

Step 4: Serve the turkey stuffed with oysters.

Serve the turkey to the table whole and already cut there. Before serving, it should be slightly salted with coarse salt and pepper, the smell will be just great. Good appetite!
