    Molly53's Note:

    When fast-food restaurants first started, their goal was to serve good, old-fashioned, country-style home-cooking. These days, it's the reverse...home cooks try to reproduce fast-food. A recipe such as this is similar to what Colonel Sanders wanted to mass market as good as home-cooking when he established KFC, but this old timey recipe is nothing like take-out food. Turkey can also be prepared using this method. From the Mississippi Valley chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947. Overnight resting time not included in preparation time. Preparation time approximate.
