This past Sunday, I used the Crock Pot to cook yet another of the 4, sale priced, hotel style turkey breasts that I bought this past Summer, in the middle of a heat wave. They waited for cooler weather in my garage freezer. Cheap eats, to be sure. Pictured is a plate of planned overs that were served yesterday, Monday.
As usual, right after supper, I stripped the carcass and returned it to the awaiting Crock Pot, then covered it with water. I again repeated the stripping process.
I am always amazed that I can cull yet so much more off of the cooked bones. I call this "scrap meat." This will be used in a soup later this week.
A large bowl of turkey stock was produced in the process.
Since I was in the kithen, also used the food processor to grind up the dried out regular bread heels into crumbs,
as well as the gluten free bread heels for DD's use.
