    I saw one the other day I wanna try with some white meat.
    1) Cover chunks/cubes in ranch
    2) Add in a good amount of can jalapenos and the juice from them. More juice the better.
    3) Let it sit a few hours.
    4) Pull out each cube. Roll in breading, Panko etc etc
    5) Fry
    6) Grab a cold beer
    7) Eat a piece of turkey followed with a swig of beer.
    8) Repeat until beer or turkey is done.

    We tried to cube and fry my bird from last weekend.

    It was tougher than a boiled owl...

    Did the same thing the weekend before with my wife's was delicious. Mine was an old bird I guess.


    Think I'm gonna start shooting jakes.....I got over 400" of beard on the wall I figure its time to start shooting the tender ones..lol


    I also like to cook a turkey breast in the crockpot with a can of french onion soup and a can of cream of mushroom. Cook it on low until the internal temperature is safe. Then cut it off. If you overcook it (even in crockpot) they get very tough in my opinion.

    Its hard to beat fried turkey nuggets, I like to marinade it in Cajun injector "Cajun Butter", nuggets wrapped in bacon grilled with some BBQ sauce ( I wrap it in foil), now the legs and thighs are my favorite. Put them in a crock pot and the tendons pull right on out. Endless possibilities with this (turkey gumbo, turkey pot pit, turkey chili, turkey salad etc....)

    I brined 3 birds worth of drumsticks and thighs in a brown sugar/salt brine overnight, then apple wood smoked at a pretty low temp (160-180? Can't remember for sure) for a couple hours, and finished them in a slow cooker with chicken stock until tender enough to shred with a fork. From there they went into a very hot cast iron pan with a little butter until crisp on one side, then onto a corn tortilla. The tacos had chopped spinach and cilantro, a little diced red onion, crumbled queso fresco, and homemade salsa.

    I saved the smoky chicken stock for turkey (white meat) noodle soup with homemade egg noodles that was also pretty amazing.

    A couple good dishes I've made with leftover Thanksgiving turkey are turkey tetrazinni with asparagus and turkey carbonara. I got a bird last week so I'm thinking about using half of it for each and seeing if they're any good with wild birds.
