What to Do With Your Turkey Bones and Leftover Meat

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hey, what are you doing on the computer on Thanksgiving day anyway.....?

it's okay. I won't tell.

Are you wondering what to do with your leftover turkey meat and the bones? Look no more--I've got you covered!

Here are three completely different but absolutely wonderful soups. I can't decide which one I'm going to do this year, but I'm leaning towards the stew because it's good cold-weather food and it's supposed to rain the next few days.

enjoy your family! and don't pick fights with the crazy uncles...

{PS: click on the words under the pictures--- for some reason Blogger isn't letting me add a URL to the photos today. grrr.}

My bones are in the crock pot now! :)

Here's my instructions for nutrient rich crock pot bone broth; the part specific to turkey bones is toward the end of the article. It used to be so intimidating for me, but I love putting my bones directly from the table to the crock pot.

The turkey noodle soup link doesn't seem to be working.

Shirley Braden told us it was your birthday.
So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! By the way, I LOVED the video that the two of you did together, I thought it was so FUNNY! Any chance you could let Food Network know and we could have a comedic gluten free pair of kooks...I mean COOKS on TV? :-)

Catt, I have no idea what is going on with the blogger software today. I've tried to get the pictures to link (an embarrassing number of times!) and I just can't figure it out today. If you click on the words below, those links are cooperating.

gah! sometimes computers freak me out.

Such great ideas, i like the idea of making turkey stew with so much left over turkey from yesterday. Thanks for putting these up.

I use my bones to make broth. One turkey carcass will make two batches in my 5.5 qt crock. Add onion, bay leaf, peppercorns, celery, carrots. I do not put in any salt, as we are very low sodium, but if you are not you could salt it a bit. I typically end up with about 9 quarts of broth. Best thing ever for soups!

Heather said...

These recipes look amazing! Thanks for all your great recipes and I love the "verdict" style that you use. So creative!

Leo said...

OMG! My new fave blog! I bought my fist slow cooker last night and woke up to chili this morning! Yum! Can't wait to browse your recipes. ;) peace

I'm a huge soup fiend, and these look like delicious ideas for leftover turkey!

Lisa Stone said...

I totally needed these on Thanksgiving Day. Why WASN'T I on my computer? Oh yes, I was crying over a pie crust...
