ROAST OPOSSUM

Postby Jim Hudson » Sun May 01, 2005 2:51 pm

1 'possum, skinned and cleaned
1 teaspoon each: salt, pepper,
1 onion, chopped
1 teaspoon fat
1 'possum liver, chopped
1 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 hard boiled egg, chopped salt and pepper
4 strips bacon

Rub 'possum with salt and pepper. Brown onion in fat, add 'possum liver with and cook until tender. Add breadcrumbs, Worcestershire sauce, egg, seasonings, and water to moisten. Stuff 'possum with this mixture and truss. Place in pan belly down. Put bacon strips across back. Roast uncovered in 350 oven until tender, basting every 15 minutes. It will be done in about 2 1/2 hours. Serves 2 to 4.

About 1/2 hour before the 'possum is done, surround with cooked, halved sweet potatoes; sprinkle potatoes heavily with brown sugar and dot with butter.
