Turkey Frame Soup

Posted: Updated:

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.

Serves: 6

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:
  1. 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.
  2. 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!
