  • Sir Clinksalot's Turkey Soup Recipe

    Alot of people wonder what to do with all of that left over turkey stuff that doesn't get eaten. Well, the thing to do is Turkey soup. And I have to admit, I have a pretty good process of getting the most out of my turkey.

    Thanksgiving

    Trim all of the accessible meat from your Turkey. Place the remaining bones, EVERYTHING in a big pot and put in the fridge. (no need to do MORE work on Thanksgiving).

    Thanksgiving +1

    Get up in the morning, fill your pot up with water and boil. Once everything is boiling, turn down heat let simmer for a good 3 to 4 hours. Stirring occasionally.

    Once all the meat is falling off the bone, turn off heat. Let it sit for a few hours and cool.

    Why? The next part, well, you gotta get your hands in the stuff, and it's easier when it's cooled down. (trust me, I know from experience).

    Once it's cool, drain your broth into another big pan (this is the good stuff, you don't want to lose it).

    Once drained, sift through the bones, saving the meat and discarding the rest. Place the meat with the broth and put it back in the fridge.

    Thanksgiving +2

    Get up in the morning. There will be a layer of fat on top (which is why you put it in the fridge another night). Skim the top and discard. (you don't want that part).

    Put pot back on the stove, bring to a boil.

    Add all of the things you want to add. I suggest the celery/onion stuffing mix you can buy in the store (but not the actual stuffing, just the veggies). It's got lots of herbs and spices in there. Also you can add carrots, etc. But DO NOT add Rice or noodles to the soup.

    You can also add any additional meat you want to add from your other leftovers.

    Let simmer for 3 or 4 hours, seasoning to taste.

    Then you can boil your rice or noodles seperately, but again, don't add to the soup. Again, this is from personal experience. It's better to keep them seperate as they can burn with all of the simmering, and they don't keep as well as the rest of the soup.

    Put your noodles and rice in a bowl, cover with your turkey soup and enjoy for dinner with a nice roll or bread.

    You will have enough soup to last you at least a week.

    Enjoy.

        Dang it! You're a couple days late posting this!

        I made incredible turkey soup a month ago; tried again two weeks ago but made the mistake of putting noodles in WAY too soon -- noodle mush is gross! My husband tried to make some yesterday but threw in the whole carcass and now we have this greasy mess. I'm going to try and skim off the fat and add more water.

            We have made the mistake of putting the noodles in and yes, it is mush. Not the best.

              Had the soup the other night, was quite yummy. Lots of leftovers. Will probably be for dinner tonight.

                    I appreciate the recipe as well. I was actually going to look one up in a few minutes.

                    Unfortunately, I don't have the carcass still, just a mountain of meat. I wonder how well it would work by using a few cans of chicken stock. Any idea on how many I would want to use?

                      Turkey soup sounds splendid! Might be wrong, but I don't recall any commercial companies that market it in the stores. Thanks for your recipe which I will definitely put to use following my Christmas dinner. I don't have a bird right now. Also, thanks for advising us not to cook the rice and/or noodles into the soup - and to prepare them separately.

                          It would depend on how much meat you want to use. Just a good mixture of meat/broth like any other soup would be fine. Unless you want Turkey stew.

                          If your making ALOT, I'd say 8-10 cans. If you only want to make enough for 1 meal, 2-4 cans should be fine.
