Turkey Noodle Soup

On the Menu Today~
Turkey Noodle Soup

This delicious and comforting soup is made with a meaty turkey carcass, 
I prefer to use the word 'frame' instead of 'carcass', (it just sounds a lot nicer...)
that I had saved from our Christmas turkey.

Take as much meat off the turkey frame as possible and
place the turkey frame in a large plastic bag,
seal it up and freeze until you're ready to make this soup.
Also, save and freeze at least 2 to 3 cups of turkey,
so you can add extra turkey to your soup.

Sounds like a great way to stay warm this winter....
with a big, steamy bowl of homemade soup.

Turkey Noodle Soup

  • 1 meaty leftover turkey frame (carcass)
  • 12 cups water
  • 4 stalks celery, with leaves, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • Soup Ingredients:
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 ribs celery, chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen green beans, optional
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen corn, optional
  • 1 or 2 cups elbow macaroni, uncooked
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 or 2 cups additional turkey
Cooking Directions
  1. In a large soup kettle, combine the first nine ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 3 hours.
  2. Remove turkey frame, carcass, and allow to cool. Remove the meat and set aside, add additional turkey, if needed, to make 4 cups turkey for soup; discard bones. Strain broth, discarding vegetables and bay leaf.
  3. Return broth to kettle; add onion, celery, carrots, green beans if using, and corn if using. Add turkey. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes or until vegetables are fork tender. Bring soup back to a boil and add elbow macaroni, reduce heat to medium and cook 5-8 minutes or until macaroni is tender.
