Before I introduce this week’s contest, let’s first announce the winner of last week’s “How Would You Cook This Turkey?” recipe-off. Many of you sent in some great-sounding recipes, so I’m glad I have enough turkey meat that I can try more than one of your suggestions.
Fruguy101 immediately got my attention with his Cajun turkey sandwich. There’s absolutely nothing I like more than a satisfying sandwich. Quite simply, sandwiches favorite food.
But, in the end, I’m awarding top honors to Koldkut honors for his turkey cordon bleu recipe. For one thing, I’ve never cooked cordon bleu (chicken, turkey, or any variety), and it sounds like fun. Also, how can you go wrong with any dish that calls for ham?
Congrats, Koldkut! E-mail your mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll send the Hunter’s Specialties Shooter’s Stick your way. Hopefully it’ll arrive before turkey season is over.
Now, onto this week’s contest. That steaming appetizer in photo above was one of the many delicious things I ate at turkey camp last month. Next to the taste, what I loved most about this dish was its hilarious name, which I’ll share (along with the recipe) next week. Until then, I thought we could have some fun with this. If you were the camp chef, what would you call this dish?
I’m looking for humor and originality here. The reader who submits the winning name will received a brand-new Pro Finesse rod from Bass Pro Shops. (The rod is 6 feet 8 inches with a medium-light action, and designed for 1/16- to 3/8-ounce lures.) You have until 9 a.m. (EST) on Friday, May 14, to enter. I’ll announce the winner that day.
Good luck! –Colin
