Smothered Turkey Wings
The third recipe in my budget kuts series is smothered turkey wings. I’m accustomed to eating turkey legs, turkey breast, turkey necks and turkey wings year around so when Thanksgiving comes around eating turkey holds no luster.
This is for delicious turkey wings that will hit the spot when it’s served over rice with sweet peas. Maybe this year instead of cooking a whole turkey you’ll make some wings.
Smothered Turkey Wings Cooking Tips:
If you’re not scared this recipe work well with turkey necks just get your butcher to cut the halves or thirds depending on size.
