This had good flavor. I used chicken broth and water instead of messing with the turkey carcass, and it was too salty (and I left the added salt out). Next time I will use more water and less chicken broth.
YUMMY!!! My family loved this soup! It is an excellent way to use your turkey leftovers!!!
Excellent way to use up the leftover turkey. It is good with rice or homemade dumplings.
When making home made soup or other dish, I use whole food and not processed (ie tin of soup). Just my opinion.
I will make this today using cream of celery soup. Instead of rice we prefer adding egg noodles at the end, cooked and rinsed first so they don.t get mushy. I will also add a little poultry seasoning for that special flavor. Yummy!
