Leftover Turkey Recipes: Next Day Turkey Soup

Still have your Thanksgiving turkey carcass? Don’t let it go to waste. Use it to make Next Day Turkey Soup. Let the carcass simmer in broth for a couple of hours and it’ll help you make an unbelievable, rich-flavored stock for this light and hearty soup.
It’s a perfect, lighter dinner choice after a couple of days of eating all of those heavy leftover side dishes.
There is something really satisfying about having a large pot of soup simmering away on the stove. With a couple of rolls for dunking, it makes for a nice, comforting dinner. And with any luck you’ll have enough for a few days worth of lunches too.

    This looks really healthy for the day after a big blow out! I like how you’ve tucked the sage leaves in the napkin ring.

    A beautiful “light” soup!! Although a rustic leftover soup, this could easily be served at a very elegant dinner!!!

    Looks yummy! My guys are so into the leftover turkey, we rarely have enough to do anything like this. I keep trying to get larger birds, and they just dig in even more. I’ll have to just oogle your comforting bowl of soup ; )

    Our hosts let us take the carcass home and we immediately made stock for turkey and dumpling soup. Soup’s perfect for the sudden cold/rainy spell we’re having in San Diego, huh?
