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
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.
