Creamy Turkey Soup...left over special

sue bronner


I started making this soup as a left-over special utilizing my left-over turkey from Thanksgiving dinner, for what my family and friends call our "Cold Turkey Party" (held on the Saturday after Thanksgiving). Our friends and family gather after the holiday to share our favorite foods, recipes, and stories that make the meal and the Holiday so special. Everyone leaves with great memories, and best more left-overs!
