HOLIDAY CHEESY SQUASH CASSEROLE
8 cups sliced yellow crookneck squash, cooked and drained
6 slices Bear Creek Smoked Peppered Bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 egg beaten
1 and 1/2 tablespoon flour
2 teaspoons chicken flavor instant bouillon
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine egg, cottage cheese, flour and bouillon in a large bowl. Add squash and mix well. Place into a greased 12 x 7-inch baking dish. Top with shredded Swiss cheese and bacon. Bake 20 to 25 minutes. Let stand five minutes before serving. Refrigerate leftovers.
EDDIE DEEN TURKEY PREPARATION INSTRUCTIONS
If the turkey arrives frozen, allow it to thaw in your refrigerator. If the turkey is still frozen the morning and your family desires to eat it, then allow it to thaw on the counter in the Oven Bag. Eddie Deen suggests in order to maintain the moisture within the Hickory Smoked Turkey, it is best to eat it either chilled or at room temperature. He suggests refrigerating it if you intend to eat it within three days of arrival, otherwise keep it frozen until ready to thaw.
We realize some customers desire to eat their smoked turkeys hot. For that purpose we package them in an Oven Bake Bag. The instructions are below:
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Leave the turkey in Oven Baking Bag and slice 2 small holes in the top of the bag
Heat the Turkey for 6 minutes per pound
DO NOT ADD FLOUR TO THE BAG
