Leftover Turkey Recipe Ideas

I wanted to share one more idea for using your leftover Turkey.  Because my Chicken Noodle Soup recipe is so delicious, I used it, I used my Chicken Noodle Soup recipe to make this soup but substituted the chicken and noodles for leftover turkey and wild rice.  It was a tasty and delicious way to use up the last of my turkey.  I also made Turkey Cranberry Grilled Cheese Sandwiches to go with it.  Both of them were incredible!!   I do not say this often, but I love these leftovers.  

Delicious Turkey Wild Rice Soup

If you need an idea to use up the rest of your turkey, try this Turkey Wild Rice Soup.  I used my Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe. To make this soup, I simply substituted the chicken for turkey and the noodles for wild rice.  This flavorful soup is super simple to make using your slow cooker.

  1. Hi Diane! This soup looks so good to me today. When it gets cooler, I crave soups and this one will satisfy my craving. Noodles are for every day, but rice………now that is something special. I think it makes for a nice hardy soup. I’m thinking I should have planned to have more leftover turkey.

    • Christina,

      I have been making a lot of soups lately. Hopefully, I will do a soup RoundUp soon. I will probably be making even more this coming weekend. I just saw the noon news and they are calling for really cold icy weather.

      Thank you so much for stopping by. I look forward to stopping by and checking out //

      Blessings Always,
      Diane Roark

  2. I totally had to pin this one for my husband who loves most soups that contain wild rice. Me I admit is not big into turkey in soup for some reason, but do think my husband would enjoy this one, so totally sharing with him. Thanks as always Diane and enjoy the rest of your weekend now!! 🙂
