Step 1

Combine turkey necks with four cups of water and bring to a boil. Cook for about 30 minutes or until done. Allow to cool, remove the meat, and save the broth.

In a frying pan, sauté the onions and celery in 1 tablespoon of butter until tender, but not brown.

Finely crumble the cornbread and the biscuits in a large bowl. Add the cooked turkey neck meat, sautéed onions and celery, poultry seasoning, salt, and pepper to the mixture, and stir until combined. Moisten crumb mixture with reserved broth from the turkey necks until desired consistency.

Evenly spread into the bottom of a greased 9x13 baking dish. Bake at 350°F until top turns a golden brown and edges are crispy, this should take about 30 to 40 minutes. Serve warm with turkey gravy.
