Happy Thanksgiving week! I know we are all about to disperse to our various families and friends for the Holiday, but I wanted to share my favorite recipe for thanksgiving leftovers… It’s actually my mom’s (where all the best recipes tend to come from) and its VERY easy and super yummy!
Take your turkey carcass (plus any leftover wings, legs etc) and put into a very large pot. Add water and/or chicken stock, (Don’t overdo the stock at first, in case the other bits and pieces you add are salty enough – you can always add more stock nearer the end according to taste), and bring the pot to boil and let it simmer. Alternatively, you can do all this in your crockpot and just leave over night. When the meat is falling off the bone, remove the carcass, bones and skin, (be careful to remove any smaller bones). Strip the carcass of any remaining meat, returning meat to the pot. Add leftover veggies, stuffing, gravy, potatoes, onion, squash etc. and continue to cook nice and slow. Simmer on until it meets your taste and you have an amazing soup that you can continue to enjoy or freeze into batches for future meals!
