Fried Turkey Soup
I'm calling it fried turkey because that's what we had this year. But in previous years it's just been a regular cooked in the oven/roaster turkey. So the recipe is still the same. I managed to remember to snap a few pics of each step this time. Getting better.....
For starters you will need the following ingredients:
Leftover turkey meat shredded
Turkey legs, wings, and backbone
1 onion, chopped
4 large carrots, coined
2 cartons of turkey stock, substitute with water if you don't have
1 bag noodles of your choosing (I used egg noodles. If you use the egg noodles like me and you love lots of noodles in your soup, I suggest you get 2 bags.)
1 large stock pot or crockpot
1. Place your turkey stock or water in a large crockpot or stockpot along with the turkey legs, wings, and backbone. Bring to a boil and season to taste if necessary.
2. Once you are satisfied with the taste of your base, then add in the carrots, onions, and the shredded turkey meat and allow to simmer for about 2 hours. If you have a crockpot it will be around for hours.
4. Based on the cooking times of the noodles you get, add them right when you are about to serve the soup to prevent overcooking.

I always make more than my family needs so I end up sharing every year. This year I took what we didn't need to church and they LOVED IT!
