This is the part we like, almost better than the turkey itself! Homemade Turkey Soup! This is our recipe, and you can tweak it to suit your taste. We use old fashioned noodles in this or my Corn Dumplings posted on this site. Enjoy!



The recipe is my own. The photo is from a free site to show you what it looks like.

How to Make BONNIE'S TURKEY SOUP

Step-by-Step

  1. MAKE THE SOUP STOCK FIRST:
    Add garlic, parsley, poultry seasoning, salt, pepper, red pepper, and bay leaves to the kettle with the turkey carcass. Slowly bring to a boil; skim foam. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 2 hours. Leave broth in the kettle. Discard bay leaves. Remove carcass; set aside until cool enough to handle. Remove turkey from bones; discard bones. Cut turkey into bite-size pieces; set aside.
  2. MAKE THE SOUP: Saute onion, carrot, celery in a large skillet until vegetables are tender, add the garlic. Add a splash of wine to the pan and transfer the veggies to the soup kettle into the stock. Bring the soup to a boil. Add the noodles and cook until almost tender, then add the reserved turkey and frozen peas. Simmer until noodles and peas are tender and serve.
  3. COOK'S TIP:
    Grandma's noodles are our preference if they can be found. We get ours at Smith's or Walmart. Wide egg noodles are the second noodle choice. Corn dumplings may also be used instead of noodles. Enjoy!
