How do you stretch your birds

選t痴 the season for turkeys to go on sale after the holiday so I値l grab a few for the freezer. Then we have them throughout the year for decent price still.

There is the obvious roast dinner but that aside we often cook up a bird or a roast and use that meat for the week it makes dinner prep easier.

So if you guys have leftover turkey in your fridge what do you like to do with it, for any meal.

Leftover turkey ends up in sandwiches, turkey shepherd's pie and soup.

We only have a big turkey dinner for Thanksgiving. I have some boneless turkey breasts and thighs in the freezer from another bird I used for stock. I'll make a mini turkey dinner with those parts over the rest of the winter. I sometimes smoke a turkey breast for a meal or two in the summer.

I let my turkeys stretch themselves. After being in the freezer they just stretch themselves from being in the freezer.

Soup is always a must do for me. Sometimes this leads to freezing cooked meat for later because my soups last for days

I always smoke the turkey and one of our favorite soups is smoked turkey and wild rice.

Turkey wild rice soup for me. Even better with wild mushrooms. It freezes well.
