Day After Thanksgiving Turkey Noodle Soup

by Laura

Today and tomorrow, I will have some recipes for you to use up those Thanksgiving leftovers.  One of the best things for me about thanksgiving is the leftovers!  One way that I love to use up my leftovers is in my day after thanksgiving turkey noodle soup.  This recipe is a Real Mom Kitchen original by moi!  This recipe is made using the turkey carcass.  However, you could easily substitute the broth portion of the recipe with canned  broth or bouillon.

I like my soup to have plenty of noddles.  I also like to use Grandma’s Fresh Frozen Homemade Style Wide Egg Noodles.  These noddles are thick and yummy since it’s fresh pasta that has been frozen.  It really adds to the homemade flavor of the soup.  However, I don’t always use them and regular dry pasta works great too.

Here are some other yummy soup recipe to use up your leftover turkey.  On the chicken recipes, just substitute the chicken with turkey.  If the recipe calls for cooking the chicken,  just add the cooked turkey at the end of the cooking process.

I made this today with turkey carcass left over from Christmas. it was SO yummy. I had to make some substitutions and additions, but it worked out well. I added crushed garlic in the broth phase, and just used mixed herbs, chicken salt and pepper, as we had no bay leaves. Also had no boullion cubes, so used the seasoning sachet from 2 minute noodles (like Ramen noodles) instead. Then used the noodles (2 packets) in the soup. For the soup, I used the turkey that came off the carcass, rather than other meat, and it was plenty. I added a little bacon with the onion to supplement. So much goodness – thank you!

I made this soup last night and it was a hit! I had homemade stock that I had made with the turkey carcass and some homemade noodles, leftover cooked carrots from Thanksgiving so I threw it all in. Delicious! Thanks for sharing. So simple and so tasty.
