Still have some turkey leftover from Thanksgiving? Well we had an extra turkey to cook yesterday but we both decided weren’t in favor of having the traditional Thanksgiving dinner for the fourth night in a row.
This Turkey Pot Pie Soup takes care of that problem and topping it off with a homemade biscuit is like icing on the cake.
Turkey Pot Pie Soup with Homemade Biscuits
2 tablespoon butter
1 yellow onion, diced
3 stalks celery, diced
3 garlic cloves, chopped
2 large russet potatoes, peeled, diced
4 fresh sage leaves, chopped
1 tablespoon pepper
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup half and half
3 carrots, peeled, diced
2 cups shredded turkey meat
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
Our favorite biscuit recipe to use is by Alton Brown via Food Network
Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in onions, celery, garlic and flour until mixed. Stir in potatoes, sage leaves and pepper. Add 1 1/2 cups of water, chicken broth and half and half. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cover for ten minutes. Add carrots, cook for five minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add turkey meat. Top off with parsley and a pinch of salt to taste.
Add a biscuit or two to cover your bowl of soup and enjoy!
