There's more than one way to get leftovers out of a whole turkey, and our recipe for homemade Turkey Frame Soup will take advantage of every part of our turkey. Think of it as an eco-friendly recipe you'll love.
Cooking Time: 1 hr 40 min
What You'll Need:
1 leftover turkey frame
12 cups chicken broth
Leftover pan drippings, if available
2 to 3 carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
2 to 3 celery stalks, cut into 1-inch chunks
2 onions, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 to 3 cups leftover chunked turkey
What To Do:
In a soup pot, combine all ingredients except the turkey. Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce heat to low, then simmer 1-1/2 to 2 hours.
Stir in the turkey, let simmer 10 minutes, then serve.
You can add some cooked egg noodles to make this an even heartier soup.
And if you should be lucky enough to have leftover turkey breast, we really recommend you try our Cranberry Turkey Melts over the holiday weekend!
