Classic turkey soup
You cooked a giant bird, and now there are tons of leftovers. Not a problem—a few hot bowls of soup are the way to go. Kitchen Tip: If you aren’t serving the soup right away, cook noodles separately in a pot of boiling water. Drain, then store noodles in a separate container, adding to soup just before serving. This prevents mushy, over-cooked noodles and starchy, stodgy broth. Get our classic turkey soup recipe.
