Last weeks post was hopefully your coup de grace for a full-fledged DoAhead Thanksgiving. Today’s recipe is intended to help you think ahead with regards to your turkey leftovers!

Our tribe tends to have plenty of Tom Turkey left. We’re blessed to have “Shro” (our amazing BIL) turn it into a second round of delicious fixings in the form of soup!

I asked Uncle Greg if he’d mind sharing his recipe because I’m certain your household will love it too!

Instructions
  1. Following your Turkey Dinner, take all the bones (with the exception of the ribs) and put them in a pot with 2 quarts of water. (Be sure to discard any fat or skin.) Add the bay leaves and then cook for 2 (or up to 3) hours.
  2. After the allotted time, strain the stock. Throw away the bones and than add the chopped vegetables. Bring to a boil and then simmer for an additional 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
Recipe Notes

Soup is one of our family's favorite DoAhead recipes. Winter months find us making a big batch over the weekend and enjoying it all week long.

If you're not in the mood to whip out a big batch of soup after Thanksgiving prep the meat by tearing it into bite size pieces and than freeze. You'll be ready to make soup once the snow flies!

(Also, this particular soup is even better the next day----more time for the flavor to "settle in".)

*Remember, the best soup will come from a well-cooked, flavorful Turkey. Check out the post "Tom Terrific" for Shro's incredible turkey brine recipe!
