DIRECTIONS

  • Place turkey in a large stock pot, or crock pot, add water, stock, celery seeds, onion flakes, sage, and thyme.
  • Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer for 6 - 8 hours, or set crock pot on high for 6 hours.
  • Remove the turkey from the liquid then separate turkey meat in small bite size chunks from all bones, cartilage, excess skin, gristle from the turkey and discard. Be very careful when doing this as there are a lot of small bones.
  • Place turkey meat back into liquid, add turkey gravy and mix.
  • Add egg noodles and cook for recommended time on package.
  • Add 2 cups of stuffing and stir.
  • Toss remaining stuffing on as garnish to a full bowl.
