This soup is something my mom taught me to make using leftover turkey from Thanksgiving! On a cold winter day, this soup is the best as it is so easy and filling. It'll make any tummy satisfied! The best part about it is it only takes about 10 minutes to prepare! —Sarah D

What You'll Need
  • 3 cups cooked turkey meat, cut into half inch chunks; both white and dark can be used
  • 5 cups water
  • 5 biscuit dough, uncooked (non-buttered biscuit dough works best)
  • 2-3 tablespoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons pepper
  1. Bring water to a boil in a pot and then add turkey. Skim off fat from turkey in the soup, if there is any.
  2. As soup is boiling, tear off biscuit dough as you stir the soup. Cook for about 3-5 minutes at a boil. The biscuit dough should be floating on top of the soup when it is ready.
  3. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Yes! This is one of my husband's favorite meals. The cooked turkey already has lots of seasoning and then the biscuit dough adds really great flavor.

I put the turkey bones in the crockpot and cook overnight. Then I strain, refrigerate overnight and skim off the fat. Then you have a fabulous broth. I had a friend that threw the broth out because it’s like jello & she thought something was wrong. It’s perfect. I also add onion, garlic, celery, bay leaves, carrots with the bones.
