Excellent use of leftover Thanksgiving turkey meat. Like many people, I have spent countless hours searching for unique and appealing ways to serve leftover turkey for the several days that followed our huge Thanksgiving feast. After trying several different soups and stews, my husband and I combined all the things we liked best about our favorite recipes and came up with this wonderful turkey stew recipe. It's our favorite and the only turkey stew that we even eat anymore.

This stew recipe is perfect for your turkey leftovers. We loved that Vickie roasts the turkey bone. It gives the stew a rich, deep, savory flavor. Adding veggies and rice make it a hearty soup. Serve with crusty bread and you have an easy, delicious dinner. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Turkey Stew

Step-by-Step

  1. Dissolve the bouillon in the hot water to make a broth; set aside.
  2. Preheat broiler. Place turkey bone on broiler pan, and place under preheated broiler for 10 minutes, to enhance the flavoring a bit.
  3. Place the turkey meat, turkey bone, all the vegetables, flour, both kinds of rice (or egg noodles), spices, chicken broth and water in a large kettle or Dutch oven. Season with salt and pepper, and stir well.
  4. Bring the soup to a boil. Then simmer over low heat for 30 to 45 minutes, or until the carrots and celery are tender, stirring frequently.

    NOTE: You can replace both the white rice and wild rice with 1 cup egg noodles (or other pasta) if you wish.
  5. Remove turkey bone and serve immediately.
