Turkey Nuggets

This cousin of the chicken nugget, while not a traditional part of Thanksgiving dinner, makes for an excellent main dish that kids of all ages will enjoy. Serve plain or with a variety of dipping sauces that the children like best. They are best eaten right after cooking, but can be made ahead of time and reheated as directed below. They are also a great way to use up all that leftover turkey in a very kid-friendly way!

Oil for frying
1 egg
1 1/2 cups ice water
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1 1/2 pounds cooked turkey, cut into small chunks

In a deep fryer or large skillet, heat the oil to about 350 degrees over medium high heat. In a medium bowl beat the egg well. Whisk in the water, flour, baking powder, salt, and poultry seasoning and mix until smooth. Dip the turkey chunks into the batter, and place in the hot oil. Fry for 4-5 minutes, flipping if necessary, until golden brown. Drain well on paper towels. Nuggets can be made in advance and reheated in a 400 degree oven for 10 minutes, or until hot and crispy.

Makes 5 servings.
