This recipe has a story for sure! In the late 80's early 90's, I got my Dad into turkey farming. A friend gave me 60 turkeys. They were runts. I raised them for a FFA project. After that, we started growing 10,000 birds at one time. (They were a great security system! We knew someone was approaching this house a mile away!) Well, when we were growing turkeys. They would have accidents. (They would get ran over by the tractor during feeding or die from a heartache beofre your eyes!) Our freezer couldn't hold anymore whole birds. My dad would cut the breast off of the bird. (Turkey with all the trimmings got old.) So, I created this recipe!
