Turbo Turkey - Cook the Damn Bird Above the Camshaft

So, I suppose we're going both redneck and Thanksgiving turkey twice today (Redneck Slingshot Chick + Extreme Thanksgiving Recipes). Turbo Turkey - Cook the Damn Bird Above the CamshaftSomething about home for the holidays inspires... and this is pretty darn great.

USA Today posts a HowTo from the book Manifold Destiny (by Chris Maynard and Bill Scheller) on how to literally cook your Thanksgiving bird on the engine of your car.

Car lover? Know any car lovers (or rednecks)? Then Manifold Destiny might make it on your Christmas list this year. According to USA Today, the book includes "recipes for such delectables like Impressive Veal Impreza, Prius Pork and Ford F-150 Hot Texas Wieners..."

So, here it is, "To Grandmother's House Road Turkey", just in time for the holidays:

1 Boneless turkey breast, about five pounds, sliced into thin strips against the grain

3 large baking potatoes, peeled and diced

3 carrots, finely diced

Dry white wine

Flour for dredging

Butter for greasing foil

Salt and pepper to taste

Three-quarters cup heavy cream

1. At home, combine the turkey, potatoes and carrots into a bowl with the wine and cover. Marinate two hours in the refrigerator, then drain well (and don't drink the wine). Setting the vegetables aside, dredge the turkey pieces in flour, then heavily butter five large squares of foil.Arrange equal amounts of turkey and vegetables in each square, and season with sale and pepper as desired. Cup the foil around the turkey and vegetables, and pour over each serving as much heavy cream as you can without making a soupy mess, then seal carefully.

2. Cook on the engine about four hours, turning once. We're assuming grandmother doesn't live in the next town.

Is Prius Pork considered an eco-friendly meal?

It must be. Not only are you using a hybrid, but you're ridding the world of a major methane gas producer...
