Creamy Turkey Soup

Creamy Turkey Soup – Great Leftover Turkey Recipe

Great soup! I made this Creamy Turkey Soup with Thanksgiving leftovers and loved it so much that I made it again with chicken.


Then I made it again with Christmas turkey leftovers. It’s fabulous!

Sooooo good! Nice and flavorful. It tastes just like a homemade chicken noodle soup but creamy!

I can really see how this would be amazing as well by adding in dumplings instead of noodles for chicken and dumplings.

While eating this soup it was so comforting but was a soup that I could see making/eating when someone is under the weather.

This goes together in a flash and is really flexible for using ingredients on hand. Add or delete as you like. You can even leave out the noodles if you like

Great comfort food! Eating this soup is so comforting. Its that type of soup that would make you feel better when you’re sick.

Just tear apart a crusty loaf of bread and dive head first into this creamy turkey soup to welcome Fall.

(Be sure to use Grandma’s Homemade Egg Noodles for best results!)
