Take a fat turkey, clean and singe it. Take three or
four pounds of truffles, chopping up a handful with some fat bacon and
put into a saucepan, together with the whole truffles, salt, pepper,
spices and a bay-leaf. Let these ingredients cook over a slow fire for
three-quarters of a hour, take off, stir and let cool. When quite cold
place in body of turkey, sew up the opening and let the turkey imbibe
the flavor of the truffles by remaining in a day or two, if the season
permits. Cover the bird with slices of bacon and roast.
