South Dakota Sauerkraut Stuffed Turkey…It’s A Real Thing!
South Dakota Sauerkraut Stuffed Turkey recipe for Thanksgiving...really! It's amazing! And the turkey doesn't end up tasting like cooked pickled cabbage.
This is a recipe I adapted from a recipe my wife's Grandma Liz used for years. And trust me when I tell you this will be the moistest turkey you will ever serve your family!
Here's how to make it happen. Mix the following in a bowl to be stuffed in the Turkey:
- 1 can of Sauerkraut with juice
- 1 can chunk Pineapple with juice
- 1 Sliced up Onion
- 1 Cup Diced Celery
- 1 Stick of real Butter
- Add Salt, Pepper, & Thyme to taste
Put a couple of tablespoons of flour in an Oven Bag. Inflate the bag by blowing in a couple of breaths of air, then close off the opening and shake the flour around the bag. This keeps the bag from sticking to the turkey.
Then place the bag in a roaster. Place the turkey upside down in the bag. Fill the turkey with all the ingredients.
Some of them may spill out into the bag, but that's just fine, leave it in there.
Seal the bag and bake your turkey until it's golden brown and the internal temp is at least +165 degrees.
Oh, and yes after the bird is cooked you can serve the tasty Kraut Stuffing if you like. Or not. Whatever ya think.
