Big Bird & the 40th anniversary of Sesame Street

How about something different....Gullah fried chicken! Big Bird would love this as long as he was not on the menu!
1 chicken, washed, cut up
2 tbsp. salt and sugar mixture
1/2 cup Gullah Luv seasoning
Milk (enough!)
6 eggs (beaten)
2 cups self rising flour or chicken breader
1 cup peanut oil

Make egg was by beating eggs in bowl. Season chicken well with Gullah Luv seasoning.
Cover and let it sit for 10-15 min.
Heat oil to 350 degrees
Dip each piece in egg wash.
Coat with breader or flour.
**Make sure there is enough oil to cover each piece.
Drop thighs, then legs, then breasts and last the wings in 1 minute intervals.
Set timer for 15 minutes.
Check thigh and breast for doneness by inserting skewer.
When done, drain or drip on paper towel.

This is so good and so easy, even I can make this!

Bacon-Wrapped Turkey with Pear Cider Gravy

Now this looks delicious. And something that my family would love to try.
Why not add some bacon, crumbled, to the gravy once you have it pured into its serving dishes.
The bacon adds a flavor that will certainly compliment this great recipe.

The Basics: How to Make Turkey Gravy

One thing that I always add, on the top, are crumbled bacon. I cook the bacon in the frying pan and then set it aside. Once the gravy is done and ready to be served, I take the bacon and crumble it on the top of the gravy.
If you choose to do this, make sure that your gravy has been pured into its serving dish before you crumble the bacon.
It adds a flavor that our family enjoys.
