Leftover Turkey Noodle Soup Recipe

Leftover Turkey Noodle Soup


My favorite way to use up leftover turkey is to make a delicious pot of turkey soup. This is also a great way to clean out your refrigerator!

To make the best tasting soup, make your own stock, it’s easy! Bones make a rich, flavorful stock; use the leftover turkey carcass along with any leftover turkey meat along with an onion, a few stalks of celery, some garlic, herbs, and anything else you find in your refrigerator and let it simmer on low covered with water for a few hours. Then toss out the bones and vegetables, reserve the turkey and start your soup. There are no exact measurements, use whatever is in your refrigerator, or of course you can use canned stock or broth instead.


And yes, you can do this with chicken too!
