Roast Turkey with Pasta Tatters
Croatian Traditional Recipe - "Purica s mlincima"!
One of the known facts about Croatia: we have almost 2 million people with Croatian origin abroad . Croats mostly emigrated from Croatia after World War I and World War II looking for work and better place to live. Many Croats emigrated to US, Canada, Australia and European countries like Germany, Austria, Swiss and Italy.
One of the things they took with themselves is Croatian tradition. Traditional Croatian recipes, music, language and many other ways to remind themselves of their origin. If you got to meet even a single Croat, you would know this: they are proud of who they are and where they come from.
So, my guess is: American and Canadian Croats are making Purica s mlincima for Thanksgiving! What do you think?
How to Cook Roast Turkey with Pasta Tatters
Serves 6 to 8
1 turkey, about 12 pounds,
salt and pepper to taste,
3/4 cup oil or butter,
1 pound mlinci (pasta tatters - next recipe)
Preheat oven to 325. Grease a roasting pan liberally with oil or butter.
Salt the cleaned turkey and place a whole apple inside the body cavity.
Coat the whole turkey with oil or butter and place into the liberally greased roasting pan and add a bit of water to the bottom of the roaster.
Place in oven and roast for 3 1/2 to 4 hours, basting periodically with the oil or butter.
When the turkey is almost done, add the scalded mlinci (tatters) and roast for another 20 to 30 minutes in order for the mlinci to soak up the drippings in the pan.
You'll need a good roasting pan for your turkey!
