Leftover turkey is delicious in turkey pot pie, so I thought why not use it to make turkey pot pie soup?
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and didn’t do too much damage to your waistline.
I spent Thanksgiving at my Mom’s house, she wouldn’t have it any other way. She makes Thanksgiving look effortless, but we all brought some dishes along to contribute. I made a cauliflower gratin which turned out great, I’ll be posting that soon.
And what to do with your leftover turkey? A turkey pot pie soup is comforting and a great way to use your leftover turkey. I made my own turkey stock from the turkey bones and some vegetables, but you can use canned, or even chicken broth. I took some extra pie crust I had and cut out shapes with a cookie cutter, then baked them to make little pie crust croutons, completely optional but I loved it.
