I make this soup after every holiday, we serve a turkey at. When my husband and I were dating, our first Thanksgiving at my brother's home, as we were clearing up the dishes and getting ready to head home, someone handed Ron a bag full of turkey bones and trimmings....he brought them to the car, wondering WHY were we taking home the garbage???? I smiled sweetly and said that's lunch tomorrow. Poor man! You should have seen his face, apparently the former wife only served soup out of a can. lol

How to Make Turkeybone Soup


  1. In a large sauce pan, combine first 6 ingredients.
  2. Simmer covered, 1 1/2 hours (you can also do this step in a crockpot over night or all day on low) if I do it in the crockpot I quarter an onion and add a couple of chunky pieces of celery and 4-5 peppercorns
  3. Remove bones, cut off meat and return meat to broth.Discard the bones, and onion & celery (if done in the crockpot)
  4. In a skillet with 1-2 T of EVOO add the sliced onion, carrots and celery, saute 3-5 min until tender crisp (this step can be skipped, but it REALLY improves the flavor of the veggies)
  5. Add the veggies and noodles to the broth, simmer covered 30 minutes; until the noodles and veggies are tender. Add dried parsley last 10 minutes.
  6. If using fresh parsley use as a garnish and serve.
