Comfort Food

Did anyone make turkey soup with the leftover turkey from Thanksgiving?

It's so easy and tastes so good.... I'm not one for recipes, but here's what I put in my pot:

...a turkey carcass,  1/2 of an onion, 3 stalks of celery, a cup of carrots, garlic powder, salt, pepper, basil and parsley. Then simmered for 2-3 hours.

The most tedious part is taking the meat off the bones.

While I did that, I cooked up 1/2 a package of egg noodles in a separate pot.

(egg noodles have protein in them)

Serve it up with some freshly made Artisan bread and you have a delicious meal!

Comfort food: it doesn't get any better than that!



  1. That is an awesome looking soup Pam! We only made a turkey breast so very little leftovers to make soup.

  2. That sure looks good Pam!!I love turkey soup. My mom usually always makes turkey soup with the leftovers but this year we were all to pooped!!

  3. We sure did make turkey soup.. I made enough to freeze several pint bags so it would be here quick and yummy. My recipe is about the same as yours..
    great photos and they made me want to heat up a bowl..


  4. Oh this sounds sooooooooo good. I would love some. I forgot and just threw the carcus out, I did enjoy all the leftover meat we had though. Thanks for reminding me to make some soup. Hugs, Marty

  5. Dean made turkey & andouille gumbo with our leftovers. It was delish!!

  6. I love homemade soup, so much better than canned. I made my family a pot pie out of our leftovers. I'm vegetarian but it did smell pretty tempting.

  7. I do love soup but I do not cook the turkey my SIL does. Your food photos look so good you should do this often. I feel so responsible when I post a scares me.

  8. We make the exact same soup every year with the turkey frame! Love it! It is comfort food to me!
