These crispy, gooey and tangy bites work well as a gourmet snack or side. They’re sure to impress without stress this holiday season.

Did you know South Dakota’s soybean farmers contribute to your holiday feast by growing crops to feed millions of turkeys across the U.S.? Five million turkeys are raised in South Dakota every year, and they love to eat locally grown soybeans. In fact, poultry is the number one consumer of soybean meal in the country because it’s packed with protein and essential amino acids to keep birds healthy as they grow.

No leftover turkey? No problem! Other types of poultry will make this recipe soar. Watch the video for instructions and scroll for the full recipe. Brush up on your turkey stats, get tips for safe leftover storage and more recipes ideas here.

Hungry for Truth is an initiative about food and farming funded by the South Dakota soybean checkoff. The goal is to connect South Dakotans with the farmers who grow and raise their food.
