I guess you can call this comfort food. It's very easy to make and taste great! Try it with hot sauce on the side.
- 10 -15 turkey neck
- salt and pepper
- 1 large onion, sliced
- 1 large green bell pepper, chopped
- 2 cups rice
- 4 cups stock
- In a large pot cover turkey necks with water. Add salt and pepper to taste,. Add onion and simmer about an hour and a half.
- Remove turkey and reserve 4 cups of the stock. If you do not have enough stock, add water or chicken stock.
- Put rice in a large casserole dish cover with the stock and add the green pepper; give a stir and then lay turkey necks on top.
- Bake at 375 degrees for one hour.
This is one of my mom's signature dishes!!! She does use Lipton's dry Onion Soup mix for the stock, however. Mom cooks them in a skillet; I prefer a slow cooker. They go great with cabbage or greens. If you think you have excellent table manners, you won't after this meal - you'll be sucking the meat out of the neckbone just like the rest of us.
I agree with the two above, turkey necks, rice and gravy is the bomb, good with any vegetable on the side, corn, peas, cabbage, whatever you like.
I also eat this in my family. My grandma makes this all the time, and since i have moved out i have been making it to usually for Sunday supper. I do all the things that your mother does i thought i was the only one that adds Lipton soup and peppers. I also eat this with rice and cabbage. Sometimes i will cook mac and cheese and dressing made with the stock. Very good comfort food.
