We have a flock of turkeys that’s almost full grown, which means it’s time to test for food safety. Two weeks before a flock goes to market, we “sacrifice” several birds and send chunks of fat to be tested for pesticide, herbicide and antibiotic residues. Food safety is one of our highest priorities, so this is a standard practice that happens with every single flock we send to market.
Since we just have to send in small samples, the rest of the meat ends up in our freezer. Right now, I’m fully stocked with fresh, lean turkey breast, so I thought I’d make a list of some great turkey breast recipes I’ve gathered from around the blogosphere.
Slow Cooker Turkey Breast from Sisters Stuff:
Slow Cooker + turkey breast = yummy! But don’t cheat and try to rush it on high heat…cook it SLOW (you know, like the title says.)
Crockpot Turkey Breast:
Another slow cooked turkey breast…this one has a few more ingredients, but one of them is wine. Mmmm. :)
From Cooking Light magazine, this turkey jambalaya looks delicious! (Would be a great use for Thanksgiving leftovers, too!)
Smoked turkey breast:
We got my dad a smoker last year for Christmas! I’ll have to have him try this recipe.
I love faux Mexican food!! And this would be such an easy weeknight meal!
