After Christmas, turkeys go on sale. I like picking one up and making a bunch of different meals from it.

Day-After Turkey Soup


  • Parsley
  • Thyme
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Egg noodles
  • Celery
  • Carrots
  • Onions
  • Any leftover vegetables


Step 1

Remove all meat from the turkey carcass. This will be added to the soup later.

Step 2

To create the turkey stock, add the turkey carcass to a stock pot. Fill the stock pot with cold water, covering the carcass by about 2 cm.

Step 3

Bring the stock pot to a boil and skim any foamy stuff from the top.

Step 4

Cook for 2 hours and then strain out any solids. Let the stock cool and optionally refrigerate overnight.

Step 5

Chop vegetables into bite-sized pieces and sauté in a stock pot until the onions are softened.

Step 6

Add parsley, thyme and any other seasoning you’d like.

Step 7

Add the stock and bring to a simmer until the vegetables are cooked.

Step 8

In a separate pot, cook the egg noodles.

Step 9

Combine the stock, egg noodles and leftover turkey.

Step 10

Add salt and pepper to taste.
