Turkey Ingredients:

  • 5 pounds turkey breast, de-boned and cut into strips
  • Homemade Italian dressing (enough to cover turkey strips)
  • 1 teaspoon homemade garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon liquid smoke
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Canola oil

Gravy Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

1. Combine the Italian dressing, garlic powder and liquid smoke and mix well. Marinade the turkey strips in the mixture for several hours, or preferably overnight.

2. In a small bowl, beat the eggs first and then add the milk; mixing well. In another bowl add the flour, salt and pepper.

3. Dip the turkey strips into the egg mixture and then dust with the flour and seasonings. Deep fry until golden brown and the juices run clear. Drain.
