Oh-so-healthy turkey breast meat smothered in a savory barbecue sauce. Ideal to stuff buns or baked potatoes!

Recipe Yields: 24 servings (approximately 1 cup per serving)
Recommended Packaging: aluminum tins with foil board lids, plastic wrap

Ingredients and Instructions

2 7-8 pound turkey breasts
garlic, minced or pressed
4 cups cider vinegar
1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup Tabasco sauce
2 cups ketchup
1 tablespoon garlic, pressed or minced

Remove skin from turkey breasts. Place turkeys in roaster. Stir together remaining ingredients and pour over turkey. Cover and roast at 325° until tender (approximately 2 to 2 1/2 hours). Remove turkey, cool, and debone by pulling turkey into shreds. Strain cooking liquid and set aside. Return shredded turkey to roaster.

4 cups reserved liquid from above
3 large onions, chopped
7 cups ketchup
3/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup Tabasco sauce
1/2 cup mild Molasses
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey Dijon mustard

Add remaining ingredients to roaster and stir to combine with shredded turkey. Simmer uncovered approximately 1 1/2 more hours, stirring occasionally and breaking apart any remaining chunks of meat. Divide into aluminum tins. Cool. Cover with a sheet of plastic wrap, pressing down to cling to meat. Apply foil lid. Freeze.

Reheating Instructions

Defrost in refrigerator. Remove foil lid and plastic wrap. Transfer to saucepan or microwaveable dish and heat thoroughly. Serve as a sandwich or baked potato filling.
