Howard's Leftover Turkey Soup

  • 3 to 4 cups shredded/shaved turkey
  • 3 large carrots (chopped)
  • 3 celery stalks (chopped)
  • 1 medium onion (chopped and sautéed in butter)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Rice or noodles (optional)

Cut off all of the good meal meat off the bird. Put the big bones in a large pot with 6 cups of water and simmer for 2.5 hrs, adding water if needed.

While simmering, cut 3 large carrots and 3 celery stocks, cut up a med. onion. Sauté the onion in butter to a golden brown. Remove what meat is on the bones. Shave or shred-up about 1/8 -1/4 lbs. of turkey. Add salt and pepper to taste. First drain out all broth from pot and clean out the small bones. Put broth into pot and add turkey meat bring to simmer 10 -20 min.

Add onions, carrots and celery, and cook until done.

You may add rice or noodles. Rice will thicken up the soup so you may want to keep some broth aside to thin it out.
