I request this soup to be made every time my husband and I go visit his parents. Mike, AKA Mickey, makes this soup up especially for me every time! He had given me the recipe years ago, but I had not made it myself until I made it for the first time last week. As with any recipe, I have to change up at least one thing, bad habit. When I made it, the only thing I did differently was to make up my own homemade turkey stock from the leftover turkey breast carcass we had from Thanksgiving. Couldn't see it going to waste! Feel free to change up anything to your own taste or make this soup as is!! Either way, it's delicious!!!
