Turkey Frame Soup


There's more than one way to get leftovers out of our Thanksgiving bird. Even if it's been picked clean, our Thanksgiving turkey keeps giving as Turkey Frame Soup.

Serves: 6

Cooking Time: 2 hr

  • 1 leftover turkey frame
  • 10 cups cold water
  • 3 carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 celery stalks, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 large onion, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons chicken base or 1 to 2 bouillon cubes
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper



  1.  In a soup pot, combine all ingredients; bring to a boil over high heat.
  2. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 1-1/2 to 2 hours.


You can add some leftover chunked turkey or cooked egg noodles to make this an even heartier soup.
