The next morning, put the pan with the possum still in it (hopefull y)on top of the stove. Add 2 or 3 spoons of bacon fat and sear him on all sides. Then add chopped onion. Put in oven and bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees.
Tip from Mama Leila: "Possum is tender and mild regardless of what other people might think, you just have to watch 'em cause they'll slip away."
