Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • This recipe can be adapted to the stove top for a shorter cook time (saute veggies before adding them to the broth).
  • Although I prefer the onion and celery minced, the carrots and turkey meat should be cut into larger bite-sized pieces.
  • Editor's Note:
  • The nutrition data for this recipe includes the full amount of the carcass and vegetables in the broth. The actual amount of these ingredients consumed will vary.
  • Easy Cleanup
  • Try using a liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup

I thought this was a little bland. I added chopped fresh parsley and chicken seasoning for a quick fix. Overall easy to make.

I really liked this. I made it stovetop so I sauteed the veggies in butter before adding. Also added a little more seasoning. Will try again for sure!

I thought that this recipe was pretty versatile. I followed the recipe pretty closely but improvised on some ingredients (like the Basil and pasta noodles) and it came out very good. Very hear...

It is a great idea. Trying this now. Will see how it turns out.

Added frozen vegetables and more seasoning than the recipe calls for. Additionally, I made this using the remaining meat from the Christmas turkey carcass. It was great.
