Subject: RE: BS: Help! A SIMPLE Cornbread recipe please.
Ya'll notice that this recipe is about as far removed from corn bread as you can get. I normally smoke any turkey that comes on the place. This is what I do with the bones and scraps of meat.

               Smoked Turkey Soup Provencal
1 lb smoked turkey
32 oz. Smoked turkey broth
15-oz can white beans
14 oz can diced tomatoes with garlic, basil and oregano
½ tsp herbes de Provence, crushed (Spice Island brand)
2 cloves garlic, crushed
½ C onion, chopped
2 tbs. Olive Oil
4 cups (1 bunch) coarsely chopped fresh spinach or escarole
1 C lentils
Shredded Parmesan cheese

Boil a smoked turkey carcass in 6 C. water. Pick meat from the bones. Sauté the onion and garlic in olive oil until the onion is translucent. Add the turkey meat. Stir in beans, broth, tomatoes, and herbes de Provence. Reduce heat to low, add lentils and simmer uncovered, 5 minutes. Stir in spinach. Continue simmering uncovered 5 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese.This is quick easy recipe that tastes like you spent the day in the kitchenMakes 4-6 servings Cooks Notes :
If you have trouble finding herbes de Provence in your local market, make your own by blending ½ tsp. Dried rosemary, ½ tsp. Oregano, ¼ tsp. Sage, and ¼ tsp marjoram.
