Inspiration and Ideas

Turkey Baby Food

Turkey is a great first meat for baby. It's easy to digest and the dark meat is high in much needed iron. Making your own baby food is quite easy, and turkey is no exception! I recommend freezing what you don't use within a day or two, that way you'll have little meals at the ready whenever baby is hungry! Store for up to 1 day in the refrigerator or freeze for later use.

Smoked Turkey Broth

Rating: Unrated
Delicious base for a broth-based soup or a wonderful smoky addition to any recipe calling for chicken, beef, or veal stock. Especially delicious used in mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving!

Roasted Potatoes and Smoked Turkey Legs

Rating: Unrated

Not knowing what to do with smoked turkey legs, I did a little research without much success, so I decided to try this out. My family loved it and couldn't believe it wasn't out of a recipe book. Serve with crusty bread to soak up all the juices and a lettuce and tomato salad. It's also delicious over pasta.
