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!

    I am obsessed with turkey dressing- never thought of turning it into soup, though I have made croutons with it. Thanks for sharing at the Foodies and Crafties Soiree!

    I love this. Not only is it a great way to use up Thanksgiving leftovers, it’s a wonderful way to enjoy the flavors of Thanksgiving throughout the year without recreating the entire meal.
