What do you put in yours? I'm talking about the soup made from a leftover roast turkey carcass.
My mom makes turkey congee. Boil turkey left overs down with garlic and ginger, and once all is soft and almost falling apart, remove bones. Then add rice and cook for a long time. Toss in some green onion and cilantro to taste at the end and = great breakfast.
I cook the carcass with onions and celery and some pepper in the crockpot all day. Strain the stock and put in a big pan. Pick out the meat and set aside; discard the veggies and bones.
Then heat the stock on the stove, add onions, carrots (not too many or your soup will taste like carrots), celery, peas, corn, whatever you have on hand. Add salt and pepper to taste, a little thyme is nice too.
When the veggies are partly done, add some cooked or dry egg noodles. If you add them dry they'll be yummy but soak up a lot of broth. I generally add more water when I add the noodles and it all works out but a lot of folks prefer to cook them before adding them in.
When it is almost done, add the meat back in and taste for seasoning. I love the body of turkey soup made this way, and the leftovers are sublime!
I took the remaining extra meat from the carcass after it came out of the broth from yesterday, and I pulled it apart, now I'm making turkey and noodles with the white sauce and homemade noodles.... yummy!
