If you’re having some success in the turkey woods this spring, one of the best ways to enjoy a great hunt is with a meal of that succulent gobbler!
Stacy Harris, author of Happy Healthy Family, has a great recipe for wild turkey nibblers. She got the idea when attending the wedding of a longtime friend and decided to try turkey instead of chicken.
Either works, of course, but your wild turkey hunting opportunities might grow a bit after your family enjoys these and asks for more!1 wild turkey breast 1 cup Greek yogurt 3 tablespoons honey 3 cups plain breadcrumbs Kosher salt Pepper Nonstick olive oil spray Red pepper flakes, to garnish
