turkey potpie soup

Recipe by
Lake Mills, WI

I always make stock with the turkey carcass after Thanksgiving. This year I decided to make a different kind of soup. I was dreaming of a creamy and satisfying potato type. This recipe didn't disappoint! Even though it looks like a lot of ingredients; the soup goes together quickly and uses things you have in the house from the holiday. (and the last of the herb garden too!) Sorry about the picture! It was my left overs for lunch. I hope you take the time to make this soup!
