"Oh My Gosh ...my 1st time ever making a turkey soup .followed directions and it came out so good .only problem I encountered was a way to separate the fat .lost a good clean pillow case but it was worth it . best tasteing turkey soup I ever had ( sorry mom )"
"We used up leftover turkey breast carcass from the Italian turkey breast slow cooker dinner. It turned out really great. I did used heart request cream of chicken and used long grain brown rice to try and make it it a little more heart healthy. It is very full of flavor and hearty. This is my husbands new favorite after turkey leftover meal."
"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."
