After killing my first turkey with a bow the other day

I decided to Fry up the breast meat (recipe in Wild Game Category) but I did not want to waste my turkey legs so I threw them into the crock pot

along with the breast bone for flavor and you would be surprised how much meat is still attached to the breast even if you think you did a good job taking off the breast meat….

throw that in. with a small can of cream of chicken soup and half a can of water. salt and pepper. put lid on and let cook till meat falls off the bone.. then take out all bones. (you could boil it off the bone too but I wasn’t making it that day it was for the next day’s dinner anyway so this was easy and once it was done and bones were out I put it into a covered bowl and into the fridge until the next day for my Wild Turkey Leg Dumplings)

next day:

I got out my big stock pot and put 1 31b can and 1 14 oz. can of chicken broth into pot with 1 stick of butter or margarine,and 1 can of evaporated milk

Then bring to boil

in a mixing bowl I took some self rising flour (don’t measure it sorry) and added a bit of water  and stirred just until sticky with wooden spoon and added a tad of veg oil… stir and set to side while waiting for your chicken broth to come to boil…

once comes to boil you will take an ice cream scoop or spoon and drop your batter in one at a time quickly into the boiling pot….

then TURN DOWN HEAT to simmer and put lid on tightly and time for 7-9 minutes WITHOUT PEAKING.. no lifting of lid no way no how until timer has gone off!!!!!

get you a cup and put a few tbsp of corn starch into the cup add  just enough water to mix in the cup and pour over your dumplings when timer is up….. stir gently

turn off heat

take the bowl of wild turkey from fridge and heat in microwave till bubbly and add to your dumplings…

taste to see if you need more seasonings .. mine was perfect but you  may need pepper =)

enjoy with green beans and stuffing
