Study Butte Motel Turkey (from proprieters, early 2000’s)

Small turkey


Tony Cachere’s

Onion Soup Mix

Cup Water

Lay turkey breast down in an oven tray, add the above, cover with foil, cook 7 hours or so at 225F.  Comes out pull-apart tender.

We first tasted this entree at the Study Butte Motel, a kind of oasis in the desert, north of Study Butte, Texas, towards Alpine, in Big Bend country.  The Study Butte Motel was nothing fancy, but it was clean and there was something kindof mystical about it.  It was the jumping off place for a number of adventures by us, and by others.  A melting pot of visitors there for many reasons.  And there are not many places to stay around there!
