I made up a batch of breakfast sausage this weekend using two large Picnics. Ended up with the 2 fairly large bones after boning out the meat and was curious if anyone has a use for the bones. There is probably 1/2 lb. or so of meat total, so doesn't seem worth trying to smoke them, cure like a ham hock, etc.. I vacuum sealed them for now and put in the freezer while I think of something to do with them. The obvious use seems to just throw them into a pot of pinto beans next time around, but thought I would check here to see if anyone has any creative uses for them. FYI - I don't have a dog or probably wouldn't be asking this question. Probably not going to get a dog just for that purpose either, lol.
