Turkey Soup

What did you do with the carcass after you ate the turkey?  Well, why not make soup?  Here is a recipe which originated from my good friend Barbie!  I'm sure she wouldn't mind me sharing?

Step 1:
1 Turkey carcass
Water to cover
1 onion, diced in chucks

Boil carcass and onions for an hour or so until all the meat falls off the bone.  Remove from heat and strain making sure to get all the bones out while at the same time keeping as much turkey and broth as you can salvage.

Step 2:

1 large onion, diced
1 cup carrots, diced
1 cup celery, diced
2 tablespoons olive oil
Leftover white wine (Optional)
All leftover Gravy from Thanksgiving dinner
All leftover stuffing from Thanksgiving dinner
Add any leftover turkey, diced into bite size pieces
Salt and Pepper to Taste


1)  Saute onion, carrots and celery in olive oil until lightly golden.
2)  De glaze the pan with leftover wine if you have it.  If not, add the broth from above boiled carcass, leftover turkey, gravy, and stuffing.
3)  Bring to a boil then lower the temperature to an occasional bubble.
4)  Serve with egg noodles or without!  This will be it for the turkey...Yippee!!!!
