Two weeks before a flock of turkeys goes to market, Bart has to take fat samples from a few of the birds. The samples are sent to the plant, where they are tested for food safety. The breast meat from those birds ends up in our freezer.
I love turkey breast in the crock pot, cooked on low for several hours. But, a couple of weeks ago, I found a meat grinder at Target on clearance – originally $100 but marked down to $30! I snatched it up and put it to work!
Bart and I spent about an hour grinding and browning about 16 lbs of lean turkey breast. We divided it into pint sized freezer bags and now it’s ready for supper at any time!
Got a favorite ground turkey recipe? I’d love to have you share it!
