Bluegill heads and beef heart are some of the favorites with my family. Fry turtle like chicken in a pan till golden brown, then add half inch water after draining grease. Cover pan at 325 n oven for 3hrs, then uncover for 30minutes. Great eating with mashed taters and make homemade gravy out of turtle fry pan
