This is a tasty Cajun dish that's worth trying if you spot an opossum.


  • an opposum
  • a cup of chopped chestnuts
  • a cup of chopped apple
  • a cup of bread crumbs
  • a sweet potato
  • a half cup of lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup of brown sugar (how come ya taste so good?)
  • 1/4 cup of melted butter
  • a cup of boiling water

Boil the skinned and cleaned opossum for about 8 minutes, or until the texture is as you like it. Drain, and rub with salt and pepper. Stuff the opossum with the chestnuts, apple, and breadcrumbs. Slice the sweet potato on top and pour the other ingredients over the top. Bake for about 2 hours, covered, at 375 °F.
