Thursday's Thrifty Tip #2 ~Show Us Those Legs~

Pin It
Welcome to Thursday's Thrifty Tips

First of all, I want to introduce you to Elaine from over at Sunny Simple Life

I have recently been introduced myself to her blog and she gave an idea for making bananas last longer. Be sure to visit her blog and check it out. I don't know about you, but I am always looking for frugal thrifty tips to make my dollars go farther. So say hey to Elaine and let her know you found about about her here...

Delicious Turkey, Gravy and Rice

You can make a wonderful Turkey meal with turkey drumsticks. They are very affordable and easy to cook.

I use an electric skillet to braise them. You put them into the skillet, or you can use a stove top method, turn it on to brown them with some seasonings, and then add water as needed. Braising meat is a way to use cheaper cuts and still get delicious results. Watch for lack of water during the cooking process. It may take several hours to get the meat to literally 'fall off of the bones'.

When this happens, remove the meat from the pot, and carefully remove the meat from the many bones you will find. Shred or chop it up and put it back into the juices. Add a can of cream of chicken soup and let it simmer (you may want more water, depending on how thick it is). Cook some rice, add a salad and you have a meal that will feed around 6 people.

What do you have for us today on Thrifty Thursday?


  1. That sounds good, I'll have to give it a try!

  2. As an added thought. If you, or someone you are cooking for is gluten intollerant, make your 'gravy' with rice flour instead of using commercial soup.
