  1. Place the turkey carcass in a large, deep pot, and add the stuffing, celery, carrots, onion, bay leaves, poultry seasoning, sage, and chicken broth. Pour in additional water if needed to cover. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; reduce heat to medium, and simmer for about 1 hour, skimming off any foam. Remove the carcass and any bones. Pick any meat off and return to the pot, discarding bones and skin.
  2. Season to taste with garlic salt and pepper. Stir in the rice and return to a boil over medium-high heat. Lower heat to medium, and simmer 15 minutes. Stir in the peas, and continue to simmer until rice is tender, about 10 minutes more. Adjust seasonings to taste.

The flavor is OK but the consistency is that of a rice casserole. I thought two cups of rice was a lot. Maybe I did something wrong. (I don't think so.) I followed the recipe except that I did...

my mother made this soup every year for 40+ years, only change instead of chicken broth, water and carcess make an excellent broth, and add the leftover gravy! YUMMY!!!

This soup was great; kids ages 7 & 9 loved it, so did husband. This made about 12 servings, so I'll have some to freeze. I took another reviewer's suggestion and roasted the turkey bones at 400F...

I used mostly water instead of chicken stock but added some of the leftover gravy to thicken it up. Fantastic. My family is still talking about it from last year and are looking forward to me m...

I just made this soup but didn't have any stuffing. I'm sure it would have been better with the stuffing but it was still great with lots of taste! It's a keeper!

The picture looks great, but is clearly noodles not rice. Is this the correct recipe?

Between the poultry seasoning and the stuffing, there was way too much depth of flavor going on here for our tastes. I'll be looking for another recipe next year. Thank you anyway.
