Old-Fashioned Turkey Noodle Soup
Total TimePrep: 3-1/2 hours + chilling Cook: 45 min.
Makes10 servings (3-3/4 quarts)
The recipe was great up until I added the thyme, I put in 1 teaspoon instead of 2. It over powered the taste so much and not in a good way I had to throw it out. Try a quarter teaspoon of thyme and then taste.
This was a great base recipe! Based on other reviews, I did roast the carcass and veggies first. Definitely added some nice flavor. I then threw everything in the crockpot overnight. I felt the soup needed a lot more broth or a lot less noodles. So I used some of the water from the noodles and veggies (and also added onion for more flavor). Really really yummy! Tastes like my mom’s ??
This is delicious love the garlic
What a fun recipe, I used mixed color carrots also a little garlic and very important 1/4 cup vinegar adds a wonderful flavor to chicken soup. I also made homemade egg noodles for the soup very hearty and good...
Delicious! I didn't roast the carcass, but threw the whole thing as well as the broth veggies into my crockpot overnight on low. Broth was rich and deep in the morning and ready to be made into this wonderful soup. Great basic recipe.
Great basic recipe that guided me in making the best turkey noodle soup ever. I didn't roast the turkey, but made the broth using the carcass and leftover turkey from a double turkey breast that I smoked for Christmas. I put the broth, turkey and spices in a crockpot on high until bubbly, then added the veggies (including the onion and garlic) and cooked until tender. Instead of noodles, I made cheese & spinach tortellini (the Bertolli dry ones) and put some in each bowl and ladled the soup on top. Yum! The thyme really makes this recipe delicious!
I agree with everyone else. The roasting filled the house with a delicious aroma! However, remove all skin and fat before adding to the stockpot, and I had to cut the carcass in two to make it fit. I also sauteed the diced carrots and celery in butter with 1 teaspoon sugar for further flavor, and added about 1 teaspoon Kitchen Bouquet just to give it a more appetizing color. This will be my go-to recipe for using up a turkey carcass.
Great recipe. Great way to use the turkey carcass. I added a spoonful of butter to keep the noodles from sticking together & then added a packet of turkey gravy to thicken the broth. Made enough servings to freeze some & give some away. Definitely a keeper recipe.
Fabulous! Roasting definitely pumps the flavor up! I do noodles on the side (with a bit of margarine to flavor after draining, also keeps from sticking together) since I like a lot and husband likes a little and noodles act like sponges. I add green beans or corn too.
I used an organic turkey and did not put in the oven as I found the recipe after I had simmered it on the stove. Best soup I ever made after Thanksgiving!
