Use leftover stuffing, turkey and vegetables to make this day after Thanksgiving soup. Turkey Stuffing Soup is Thanksgiving in a bowl!
Turkey Stuffing Soup
Here is soup number 3 in my roundup of soup recipes. This is the best soup for the day after Thanksgiving ever. If there was ever a reason to make extra stuffing with your turkey this is it. A big scoop of dressing is the center of attention in this soup made from leftover turkey, gravy and a few vegetables.
This is a pretty loose recipe as recipes go. It is intended to be made with a leftover turkey dinner. I cooked a turkey breast and boned it. I cooked the carcass down to get about 4 cups of broth that I saved to make this soup. If you are cooking a whole turkey, bone the turkey and boil the carcass and you will have all of the turkey broth you need to make this delicious soup. It definitely is Thanksgiving in a bowl. If you’re like me you’ll find yourself cooking a turkey just to make this soup!
- 3 cups leftover turkey
- 2 stalks celery
- 1 medium onion
- 2 - 3 carrots
- 2 cups leftover gravy
- 6 cups turkey or chicken broth
- salt and pepper
- 1 cup frozen peas
- leftover dressing
- Chop up the celery, carrots and onion. Add the vegetables with the stock to a pan. Cook over medium heat about 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
- Stir in the gravy and turkey. Add salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 10 minutes. (Note: If the soup needs to be thickened a little, do it before you add the peas. Use 3 tablespoons of flour and ¼ cup water) Add peas.
- Warm up the dressing in the microwave. Put a scoop of dressing in the soup bowl and ladle the soup over it.
