Turkey Leftovers?


We survived Thanksgiving with only a pound of turkey left over.

Now what to do with the left-overs?
One thing I do every year is make a big pot of soup.
You can do this the day or so after or freeze the carcass and at a later date defrost and use.

I see the stock as a blank “slate” you can add ingredients to or keep it traditional.

Turkey “chicken” soup

Carcass, wing and thigh bones
Enough water to cover the bones
Cut up carrot,onion, salt and pepper
A bouillon cube, this you can find in any grocery store. Mine is from Knorr.
Noodles, those big fat ones would be good.

noodles
Poultry seasoning, I buy mine for the bird and keep some aside.

Cover the carcass with water
Add carrots, poultry seasoning,onion, salt, pepper and bouillon cube.
Let simmer on stove or crock pot 6-8 hours
Remove bones and strain the soup into a clean pan, I use a clean dish towel
Clean the meat of the bones
Return the meat to the soup and add noodles
Flavor with salt and pepper to taste and simmer on low heat until the noodles are cooked

Enjoy!
