Salt & Pepper
Beat one egg with milk to make an egg wash.
Dip turtle pieces in the egg wash, and then into flour that has been seasoned with salt and pepper.
Brown the pieces in a skillet with cooking oil over medium heat for about 8 minutes.
Slice thick pieces of onion, and lay the slices in the bottom of a baking dish. The onion does not add an overpowering flavor to the turtle, it just aids in keeping the turtle moist.
Add water so that it covers half way up on the onion slices.
Lay the pieces of browned turtle on top of the onion.
Cover and bake at 350 for 1 1/2-2 hours.
Check for tenderness with a fork. The turtle is NOT done until it is fork tender, and falling off of the bone like ribs.
More time might be necessary, depending on the size of the turtle.
For a crispier product, take the cover off for the last 30 minutes of baking.
