If I dont make this soup the day after thanksgiving I think my family would cry!! Iv been making my day after soup since I could remember. I think my family looks forward to this soup more than thanksgiving dinner.
I use all my leftovers, havent tried with cranberry sauce though, My aunt does! I find adding the dressing gives alot of flavor.
In lg pot Place 2 quarts water, turkey neck, turkey bones, and whole carrots celery onion and garlic. Bring to rapid boil and boil down for 1hr. Strain and return to pot.
To remaining broth add box turkey or chicken stock 4-5 cups water and 2 pkg turkey gravy mix well and return to boil.
Next add all your leftover turkey, side dishes, dressings, mashed potato, and veggies. Let cook and simmer for half hour. If more liquid is needed add more stock. And if your family likes pasta or rice add to last 10min of cooking. Add s&p if needed.
