  1. Place the first nine ingredients in a Dutch oven or soup kettle. Bring to a boil; skim fat. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 2 hours. Remove bay leaves. Remove carcass; allow to cool. Remove turkey from bones and cut into bite-size pieces; set aside. Pour 1 cup of the broth into a bowl; add egg and beat. Stir in enough flour to form a stiff dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead 8-10 times or until smooth. Divide dough in half; roll out each piece to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut into 2-in. x 1/4-in. strips. Add dill and poultry seasoning to remaining broth; bring to a gentle boil. Drop slickers into broth; cover and cook for 30-35 minutes or until tender. Add peas and reserved turkey; heat through.

Thought the broth on this one was a little strong. Too much parsley, I think. I didn't roll out the slickers thin enough so came out a little strange.

The recipe is good. I was not prepared for the texture of the slickers. They are a little gummy and pasty, and sort of make the soup broth thick and pasty also. I am thinking that when I make...

This recipe is very close to how I make turkey soup. I add garlic, sage, thyme. a little oregano. For the "slickers," I used Annie's frozen dumplings which turned out great. Because I don't u...

This soup was wonderful for using up the Thanksgiving turkey carcass! The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because of the slickers. I don't care for them, so I used a bag of egg noodles inst...

This was an excellent soup - got great reviews from hubby and picky 16 & 12 yo daughters! It was my first attempt at making the rolled dumplings, but they were perfect. The recipe did make mor...

Made this with smoked turkey off the Traeger. Loved it. I had never made the slickers before, they were good but definately have to go small with those.

My (very picky) daughter said this was "amazing". "The Chinese noodles are the best, mom!". So good to find something healthy that she'll eat and enjoy.

This was great

Excellent recipe, Christine. We like a more "sagey" flavor, so I doubled the seasonings. I had never heard of slickers before. They were a wonderful addition to the soup. Thanks.
