Turkey Frame Soup

Directions

  1. Break turkey frame or cut in half with kitchen shears. Place in a large Dutch oven or kettle. Add water, onion, and garlic salt. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 1-1/2 hours.
  2. Remove turkey frame. When cool enough to handle, cut meat off bones; coarsely chop. If desired, add more cooked turkey meat (enough to equal about 2 cups total). Set meat aside. Discard bones.
  3. Strain broth through a sieve lined with 2 layers of 100-percent-cotton cheesecloth; discard solids. Return broth to Dutch oven. Stir in undrained tomatoes, bouillon granules, herb, and pepper. Stir in vegetables. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Cover; simmer for 15 minutes.
  4. Stir in noodles. Cover and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes more or until noodles are done and vegetables are crisp-tender. Stir in cooked turkey; heat through. Serve immediately. Makes 6 main-dish servings.

Make-Ahead Tip:

  1. For individual servings, prepare soup and freeze in 1-1/2-cup freezer containers, leaving a half-inch head space. Seal, label, and freeze up to 1 month. To serve, transfer 1 portion of frozen mixture to a small saucepan. Cover and cook over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes or until heated through, stirring occasionally.

I can't believe it! My nine year old's comment after eating this soup was, "this is really good, can you make it again?" He typically does not like stuff all mixed together and always picks out the tomatoes. He declared that the tomatoes were good in this soup. I didn't even make it, my sister-in-law did. I promptly called her in order to find this recipe. Thank you Better Homes and Garden. Maybe I will be able to get him to try other soups after this.

I too have been making it every holiday season & still have the stained, elderly reciop[e page from my first cookbook over 40 years ago. No matter how many other recipes I've found, this is always the one I wind up serving. YUMMMM!!
