Was watching the food channel this morning and saw a segment on one of the shows with Emeril Lagasse. He threw out a recipe for "Turkey Bone Gumbo".

I went and checked it out on his site and it looked pretty tasty. I've allways wanted to learn to make File Gumbo, so I think I'm gonna give this a try instead of the normal turkey sammich fare.

In case you are interested...

Turkey gumbo is awesome. Some folks actually ask their neighbors to save their leftover carcasses.

Pro Tip: Roast the liver with the bird. Finely dice it and stir it into the gumbo.

I'm doing the turkey in the Big Easy... Could we just fry the livers?
