Left over Turkey Soup with Homemade Noodle Soup

How's everybody's Thanksgiving? We had a nice , quiet thanksgiving in our house. A lot of blessings to be thankful for , it will be nice to have a grateful heart all through out the year though not just on thanksgiving day. After all a grateful heart is joyful heart.

So lets talk about those turkey left overs that occupied your fridge.. here's a very easy recipe. My girls love chicken noodle soup..so this is just perfect for us.



3-4 cups of shredded cooked turkey meat.
8 cups chicken stock  ( I used homemade)
1 t olive oil
1/2 onion diced
2 diced garlic cloves
1  cups of diced carrots
2 stalks of celery diced
1 bay leaf
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 t dried thyme or basil ( can skip , if your stock has it already)




 Heat oil in a large saucepan .Saute onions until soft,.



Add garlic . Add broth , carrots , celery , bay leaf and cooked turkey ( herbs too if using).  I used homemade chicken broth that I batch cooked last week. Still frozen and yes it doesn't look pretty :)

Cook for about 1 hour or so. Add the homemade egg noodles at the last 30 minutes of cooking. Add salt and lots of pepper if you must.

HOMEMADE EGG NOODLES

Mix until it forms a sticky dough ( slight sticky).

This is my best friend when it comes to doughs. It's a pastry mat. I love that it has the ideal measurement guide for pies , pizza and it has a cheat sheet of dough recipes on the side.


Roll out you dough on a floured surface ( i still lightly floured mine). Cut to your desired thickness. Just keep in mind that the dough noodle will expand / get big when cooked. We prefer thick cut noodles,



tada..homemade goodness!

  1. Just had a conversation with the 15 year old about needing and not having egg noodles in the house... I think I'm going to be brave and try letting him make these!
