    Turkey Bone Gumbo Recipe

    Smart cooks never throw away a chicken carcass, or god forbid, a Thanksgiving Turkey carcass! I always look forward to post Thanksgiving Turkey Bone Gumbo, which is a wonderful way to utilize the meat, carcass, and in my case, dressing. In place of the rice I like to serve this with leftover dressing, which is just incredible with this Thanksgiving flavor packed Gumbo!

    Turkey Bone Gumbo Recipe

    1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil
    3/4 Cup All Purpose Flour
    4 Tbsp Creole Seasoning
    1 Cup Onions, diced
    1/2 Cup Red Bell Pepper, diced
    1/2 Cup Celery, Diced
    1 1/2 Cups Andouille Sausage, cubed
    3 Tbsp Garlic, chopped
    6 Cups Turkey Stock
    3 Fresh Bay Leaves
    Leftover Thankgiving Turkey Meat
    2 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
    Hot Sauce to taste
    Kosher Salt to taste, if necessary
    2 Tablespoons Italian Parsley, chopped
    1/4 Cup Thinly Sliced Green Onions
    Leftover Thanksgiving dressing, or Oyster Dressing
    Fresh French Bread

    Mix your onion, celery, and bell pepper together: The Holy Trinity.
    Heat the oil in a cast iron dutch oven over medium heat. Whisk in the flour to make a milk chocolate colored Roux (making a Roux). Add the Andouille, 1 Tbsp of Seasoning, and 3/4 of the Holy Trinity, cook, stirring often, for about ten minutes or until the vegetables soften. Add the cold stock, remaining seasoning, and Garlic. Bring to a Boil. Bring this down to a simmer and let it go for at least 2 hours, stirring occasionally. About 10-15 minutes before you’re ready to serve, add the leftover Turkey to the pot. Add the Worcestershire, Hot Sauce, and 1/2 of the Green Onions. Serve with hot leftover dressing, crusty French Bread, and a good cold beer (I like Dixie or Abita Amber).

    Garnish with green onions, and the parsley.

    For the Turkey Stock:

    Break apart the Turkey carcass and cover by 2 inches with cold water in a large stock pot. Slowly bring it up to almost a boil. Skim off any scum and fat that rises to the surface. Reduce the heat and maintain the heat at a bare simmer, continut to skim.

    Add:

    4 Cups of roughly chopped onion
    2 Cups roughly chopped carrot
    2 Cups roughly chopped celery
    1 Tbsp Black Peppercorns
    2 Bay leaves

    Simmer for 4-6 hours. In the last hour add, a small bunch of fresh Thyme, 1 bunch of parsley stems. Strain through a fine mesh strainer, discard the solids.

    Stock freezes wonderfully.

    Thank you, Tacmotusn. I love Cajun anything. The recipes sound great.
    I worked offshore with some of the nicest Cajuns. I was a cook on a ship and you can imagine how much fun it was with a boatload of Cajuns.

    @pearlselby, I keep mine simple. Boil the heck out of the carcass to make a broth. Season to taste. I also throw in a whole bunch of garlic and ginger. Strain the bones and bring the broth to a boil. Add shredded turkey meat. Add rice. Cook it like a risotto. Bring the mixture with rice to a boil and simmer. Stir often and add broth as needed to get the consistency you want.

    That's it. I topped with while pepper and shoyu and green onions. All optional. If you have Chinese curlers, throw some in too.

    Let me know how it goes. We like it. I sometimes make it at camp. And as it cools off later in the year, it is a big warm hit.

    Not turkey, but you can do the same with chicken carcass...

    Three stages of chicken... hulihuli, deboned, and carcass

    [​IMG]

    We are some of the meat and the carcass is simmering for jook, for tonight's dinner.

    Normally, if I was just eating the chicken, I'd be slurping on all the burnt goodness. But I am saving it to impart the smoky flavor to the jook.
