I buy whole turkeys when they are cheap. I cook the turkey the first time like a Thanksgiving dinner. What is left I use for:
I always make turkey stock out of the carcass after I have removed the best meat. I just throw in the skin, bones or anything that I don't want to eat with onion, celery and carrot. Use whatever spices you like, add water and simmer for 2 or more hours. Use in place of chicken broth. It can be stored in the freezer for months. (07/02/2008)
I always make a batch of turkey enchiladas, or tortilla soup with turkey. Now I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving :) (07/31/2008)
