Family Fave Bacon Up Bacon Grease Turkey Injection

Main Course
Thanksgiving, Turkey, Turkey fry, Turkey Injection
Whether it’s the night before (ideal!) or even just 20 minutes before frying, you can add moisture and flavor to your turkey fry with an injection recipe. And adding Bacon Up will take it to the next level, of course!
This “FAMILY FAVE” injection features Italian dressing and Tony Chachere's® Original Creole Seasoning.


  • Sauce pan
  • Meat injection syringe


  • 2 Sticks Butter 1 cup
  • ¾ cup Bacon Up Bacon Grease
  • ¾ cup Italian salad dressing
  • Tabasco to taste we use 1-2 teaspoons
  • 1-2 tbsp Tony Chachere’s® Original Creole Seasoning


  • In a sauce pan, heat butter and Bacon Up until melted. Stir in the other ingredients. Turn off heat and allow to cool until injection fluid can be safely handled.
  • Using a meat injection syringe, insert about 2 tablespoons at a time directly into evenly distributed spots around the breast and white meat sections of the turkey. Be sure the turkey is completely thawed first and also be sure to get the needle all the way into the meat, not just under the skin. (Don’t worry too much about the legs and dark meat – they generally have enough fat and flavor to stand on their own.)
