I do the same. Only other way that is OK is slow cook them in a crock pot but more trouble than it is worth. I just breast them and grind that. Turkey burgers on the grill with onions and green peppers mixed in is nice.

Been killing these things since 1975. Tried eating them many different way and they weren't worth the trouble to me. My wife tried in vain and then one day while talking to an old mountain lady that lived near us when we lived in Hardy CO, WV told her she has cooked them a 100 different ways and they ain't good. Now any that I kill in the spring or fall goes to friends and neighbors. There may be a better way but the most palatable has been to cut into small chunks, roll in seasoning and flour and fry. The folks I give them to seem to like it and that's ok with me.

I either chop into a mush and then pan fry with a drizzle of teriyaki and serve with Dijon mustard.....OR....cut into small cubes and brown in the skillet and then add to vegetable soup.

I like to cut the breasts up into cutlets about 1/4 inch thick. Then, I dip them in beaten eggs and then coat the cutlets with Italian bread crumbs. Then, I fry them in olive oil.
