Leftover turkey? Here's a soup recipe I always make
Again, it's just not the holidays in my home if, after about 2-3 days of turkey leftovers including all the sides & desserts, I make up a huge pot of this soup. So delicious and also good for you!
Turkey Noodle Soup
1/3 C butter
1 C thinly sliced celery
1/2 C chopped onion
*Optional: add in a couple of carrots, cut into chunks
8 C ready-to-serve chicken broth (ummm, yeah, I cheat and it STILL tastes very good!)
1 pkg. (16 oz.) Reames Frozen Egg noodles (It HAS to be REAMES--they are as good as homemade)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 C cubed cooked turkey
1/4 C chopped fresh parsley
1 tsp. sage, optional
Heat butter in skillet until melted. Add celery and onion; cook about 3-5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Add broth; bring to a boil. Stir in noodles, salt and pepper. Simmer, uncovered, 35 minutes or until noodles are tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in turkey and parsley; heat through.
Makes 8 servings.
