The Best Turkey Soup Recipes To Make From Thanksgiving Leftovers

After we've all stuffed ourselves full of turkey and stuffing, cleared the dishes from the table and settled down in front of a football game, there should always be one guy left in the kitchen. The turkey carcass.

For as long as I can remember, my mother put our leftover turkey carcass in a stockpot full of water, smartly cooking every last ounce of meat from the bones and turning it into soup. She reserved the bulk of the leftover meat for turkey sandwiches, but the last bits that were clinging to the bone gave our turkey soup all the flavor it could ever need.

Whether you want to make a simple chicken noodle-style soup, a thick stew or a broth with Asian influences, we've got you covered. Check out this collection of our favorite turkey soup recipes, and let us know which is your favorite.
