Favorite Thanksgiving Leftovers

Thanksgiving is official done and maybe there are leftovers.  What I do with any leftover turkey is make some good comforting soup.



3 cups chicken broth

1 tablespoon Creole Seasoning                IMG_3084IMG_3083

1 onion diced

2 gloves garlic minced

½ teaspoon black pepper

2 large stalks celery diced

1 (14.5oz) can diced tomatoes

Left over Turkey (about 1 pound)

1 or 2 bouillon cubes

1 or 2 cups water


In medium stockpot put in the 3 cups of chicken broth, the one or two cups of water and bouillon cubes and let simmer.   (if you made turkey broth use that instead)

While stock is simmering, dice garlic, celery and onion, and then add them to the stock. Let simmer for about 15 min.


Now add in the remaining ingredients, creole seasoning, pepper, diced tomatoes, and turkey.


Let this simmer for about 20 more minutes and then taste for salt and pepper.   The soup is done and ready to serve.




Another dish we do is some turkey salad.

2 stalks of celery

2 green onions

1 cup of left over turkey

2 1/2 tbsp may (of you choice)
