  • ¼ cup butter

  • 3 ribs celery, sliced

  • 3 carrots, thinly sliced

  • 1 large onion, chopped

  • 3 cups chopped cooked turkey

  • 2 cups leftover stuffing

  • 2 large tomatoes, peeled and chopped

  • 3 sprigs fresh parsley, minced

  • 6 cups turkey stock

  • 1 ½ cups egg noodles (Optional)


  1. Melt butter in a stockpot over low heat. Add celery, carrots, and onion; cook and stir until tender, 8 to 10 minutes.

  2. Stir in turkey, stuffing, tomatoes, and parsley. Pour in turkey stock. Bring soup to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, until flavors combine, about 1 hour.

  3. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook egg noodles in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until tender yet firm to the bite, 7 to 9 minutes. Drain.

  4. Scoop hot noodles into deep serving bowls; ladle soup on top.


Substitute one 14.5-ounce can of diced tomatoes for the fresh tomatoes if preferred.

Substitute beef stock for the turkey if desired.

Substitute 1 tablespoon dried parsley for the fresh parsley if desired.
