Recipe For Fast And Easy Turkey Soup In Slow Cooker
What To Make With Left Over Turkey
When it comes to those special occasions where all the family get together for that big dinner and after dinner it is time to put the leftovers away. What do you do with your turkey? Do you put it in the fridge hoping everyone will help themselves to it so you would not have to throw it out?
Well,...let's see.... if you made gravy from the turkey juice, you can make hot turkey sandwiches. Just put the turkey on the bread and pour the gravy on top. That is one way. Or just have turkey sandwiches. Another way is to make sweet and sour turkey balls. It is the same as chicken balls but subbing with the turkey.
But the recipe that I am giving right now is........ Turkey Soup Done In The Slow Cooker
TURKEY SOUP DONE IN THE SLOW COOKER
-bones from the cooked turkey with some meat attached
-some white meat as much as you want.
-enough water to cover the bones.
-1 small bag of baby carrots.
-1 medium yellow or white onion cut in quarter wedges.
-3-4 heaping tablespoons chicken soup base powder.
- 1-2 tablespoons dry parsley.
- black pepper to taste.
- cooked noodles (any kind that you prefer).
Using A Large Oval Slow Cooker
Put all the turkey bones in the slow cooker and cover the bones with cold water. Set the slow cooker on high with lid on and bring to a boil. Cook on high for about 3 hours. Then pour that juice into a sieve over another pot. You don't want the turkey bones in that juice. Once sieved put juice back into the slow cooker. Separate the meat from the bones and add this in the slow cooker along with the rest of the white meat.
Then add the rest of the ingredients except the noodles.Turn slow cooker down to low. Once vegetables are cooked it is ready to eat.
Put noodles in the soup bowl first then add the soup. Add some crackers or buttered bread or buns on the side and enjoy!
You can add a little bit of salt to this as it is cooking, but I found when using the chicken soup base it is salty already, so keep tasting the soup while it is cooking then you will know if you have to add more soup base or salt. and if it is too salty then add more water.
