This turned out amazing. I used leftover turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans, carrots, and added a can of corn. I used chicken broth from the can but also used about 1 1/2 cups of gravy that my g-ma had made from the turkey drippings. Delicious. I def saved this "recipe" for next year!
Excellant method to use up leftover turkey, although I did not have leftover stuffing, no stuffing this time. I simmered the bones for hours, strained, refrigerated it, removed the fat from the resulting jellied stock and added the bits of turkey, the leftover veggies from dinner chopped , asparagus, carrots, rutabega and swiss chard, then added a few more carrots, celery and onion, a little more salt and pepper. mmm mmm YUMMY!!! What we call stick to your lips soup from homemade stock. Thanks for posting, I'll be using this again!!
This was a fabulous way to use left over turkey. The stuffing made the recipe. The whole family loved it.
Yum!!! I used stock I made from the turkey carcass, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes, and lots of turkey!! Awesome - next time I'l add egg noddles or rice! Thanks
POTSIE, POTSIE, POTSIE - OH MY WORD! How in the world did you ever come up with this combination and who would have ever thought it would taste the way it does - ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! I used two of the large cans of Swanson Chicken Broth (49 1/2 Ounces each), one onion chopped fine, 4 stalks of celery diced, 1 heaping spoon of minced garlic, 4 carrots sliced, about 4-5 cups diced turkey and 5 heaping cups of cornbread dressing. My cornbread dressing is very seasoned so I didn't have to add any additional seasonings. The flavor of this soup is absolutely incredible. DH & I were blown away to say the least. DH just said this is his new favorite soup and he'll slice and dice whatever I need to make this again. Thanks for sharing this "sleeper" recipe.
So easy and a great use of leftovers! I definitely recommend making your own turkey stock out of the leftover bones too. I like the idea of adding dressing to the soup - I would have never thought of that!
Who would have thought? You gotta admit, it's sounds kinda gross, but is actually genius!! I threw left over turkey, mashed potatoes, dressing, (with plenty celery and onions) chicken broth, and even left over yams into the crockpot (no seasoning necessary with the seasoning in the dressing)....amazing recipe, and a super great idea!! Thank you so much!!
How clever! Love the keep it simple directions...made as you posted....great! Then notied that bowl of leftover green beans, tossed in a few scoops of mashed potatoes and what the heck, a heap of gravy. Beyond fanyummytastic! Thanks for this concept!!
I've done this before, it sounds crazy but it works! It's wonderful don't be affaid to toss it all in. It's yummy!
Good idea, Pottsie ! Would never have thought to add stuffing to the soup ! Had a LARGE container left, and was nice NOT to have to pitch it all. I added the spices from my "Turkey Soup With Leftover Cleanup", as well as your carrots and peas. This was a lovely "light" way to finish off the turkey. Thanks for posting.
