Stewed Turkey Wings
Do you have to work on Thanksgiving Day? Will there be hungry faces looking at you after you walk in the door from work asking you where is the turkey? Who has time to cook an entire Thanksgiving meal when you've got to put in 8-12? What to do?? Well....there are ways around this...there is a way to keep turkey on the table Thanksgiving Day and you off your feet in the kitchen. How? Stewed turkey wings! With stewed turkey wings and rice you are almost halfway Thanksgiving there. Stewed turkey wings are also a winner because you can throw everything in a crockpot and come home to a delicious treat. Winning! It may not be the nice turkey served up on a platter, but it tastes good and smells up the house in a Thanksgiving way just the same.

Tony Chachere’s Famous Creole Seasoning Onion powder Garlic powder Garlic salt Lemon pepper 3-4 tablespoons butter 3-4 tablespoons olive oil 1/3 cup chopped onions 1 garlic clove chopped 1 cup chicken stock 1/4 cup warm water 2 tablespoons flour (self-rising or plain will do) 1 cup water 1 boiled egg
Season turkey wings with seasonings of choice.
Sauté onions and garlic in butter and olive oil until translucent.
Add chicken stock.
Add seasoned turkey wings and let pot come to a slight boil.
Turn down pot and let simmer for at least an hour and a half. Turning every once in a while.
After about two hours, or until you see the turkey wing joints loosen up and the meat begins to fall off the bone prepare your 'thickening' - as my mama says (and grandmamma used to say).
Mix warm water and flour.
Remove turkey wings from pot.
Whisk in thickening. Fast now so it won't clump.
Add water and bring back to boil. Then add turkey wings and boiled egg back to pot.
Let simmer for 15 -20 minutes longer. Add more salt, pepper or garlic salt if you feel it's missing a little something.
