Wild Table with Savage Arms: Wild Turkey Salad Croissants

Can we resist a joke about how your kids will "gobble" them up? (Apparently not!)

posted on March 18, 2024

It turns out that no, we couldn't resist the joke, but if your kids can resist these croissants than they're made of stronger stuff than we. NRA families know that wild game is bursting with health benefits, but some even some adult palates find wild game challenging. That's because domestically raised animals are bred to be fat and torpid and fed a bland, consistent diet. Wild game animals get more exercise, so they're a bit tougher, and their diet is more varied. But that doesn't mean that wild turkey isn't wonderful on your table--it just requires a bit more care. This recipe calls for a night-long marinade before preparation; you should feel free to use whichever you prefer (although the video host uses Dale's). Don't miss this great episode of Wild Table with Savage Arms to learn how to turn your wild turkey harvest into a wild success on the table!
