Enjoy the holiday feast all over again with this quick and hearty Thanksgiving leftovers soup. It’s comfort food to the max!
- 1 cup leftover gravy
- 1 cup leftover mashed potatoes
- 1 cup leftover prepared stuffing
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
- 1 cup leftover vegetables (carrots, peas, etc)
- 2 cups leftover cooked turkey, shredded into bite sized pieces
- Salt and pepper
- Put the gravy, mashed potatoes, stuffing, chicken broth and poultry seasoning in a medium pot and stir until combined.
- Heat the soup over medium high heat until it is simmering, smooshing the mashed potatoes and stuffing with the back of a wooden spoon to break them up. Don’t worry if you have a few stuffing or potato lumps here and there – they are like little dumplings!
- Stir in the veggies and turkey and continue to simmer until heated through.
- Taste and season with salt and pepper as needed. Ladle into bowls, serve it up and re-live your Thanksgiving supper!
Turkey: You can use either dark or light meat for this turkey soup. Just remember to shred it up into bite-sized piece that will fit on a soup spoon – you can use two forks or our Bear Paws Shredder Claws that we love!
Poultry Seasoning: This is a mixture of sage, thyme and other poultry-friendly spices. If you don’t have any on hand, a pinch of dried sage and thyme and/or oregano will do just fine.
Mashed Potatoes: This is the ingredient that really holds this soup together and gives it the creamy, dreamy consistency. If yours all got eaten up on the day, you can take a shortcut and buy a container of the already made kind, which you can find in the refrigerated section of your supermarket near the cookie dough and biscuits in a tube.
