This recipe comes from long before frying a whole bird in gallons of oil in your back yard became trendy or fashionable. Deep fried turkey meant batter fried turkey to many of us.

I first had a version of this “leftover rescue” recipe decades ago at Marshall’s Restaurant on Water Street in Bay Robert’s.

Marshall’s Restaurant is long gone but this recipe idea still survives. It has become a standard post-holiday or anytime leftover turkey meal idea.

Some in my family might even prefer these leftovers to traditional roast turkey.

It also goes great served with leftover Cranberry Sauce, Savoury Stuffing, french fries or Oven Baked Crispy Wedge Fries.

Beer Battered Deep Fried Turkey - one of the most delicious ways ever to serve leftover turkey. Many will actually prefer these leftovers to the original roast turkey dinner!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 1/2 tsp teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 1/4 cups cold beer or soda water, club soda
  • 3 to 4 pounds of thick cut sliced leftover turkey
  • Oil for deep frying

Instructions

  1. Combine dry ingredients. Add the egg and soda water or beer and whisk together just until the liquid is incorporated. Small lumps in the batter are not a problem.
  2. Slice leftover roast turkey into thick slices.
  3. Dip the pieces into plain flour and then into the batter and carefully drop them into canola oil filled deep fryer that has been preheated to 375 degrees F.
  4. Fry for a few minutes, just until golden brown on both sides.
  5. Drain on a wire rack placed over a cookie sheet. Serve immediately.
  6. If you have to fry the turkey in more than one batch at a time, hold the fried pieces in a 200 degree F oven on the draining rack to provide air circulation all the way around the fried turkey pieces to prevent it from getting soggy.

I grew up eating deep fried turkey from Marshalls. Only last week we were talking about how good it was and wished it was still there. I will definitely be trying your recipe. Thanks

Is there a substitute for the rice flour that you recommend if rice flour is unavailable?

I've never tried anything but rice flour, sorry. It does have to be a hard flour like that.
