From Mme. Benoit: La Fricasee Fatuguee: "In days that followed
Christmas, every bit of the turkey was used - the bones for soup, the
skin, diced and crisped in the oven til browned, then served, instead of
butter, on toasted homemade bread.
So, when it came time to make hash from all the little bits and pieces, the children felt that the poor turkey must be tired (fatiguee), hence the name."
