Make this hearty, satisfying Turkey, Mushroom, and Potato Soup to finish up your Thanksgiving leftovers. Top bowls with a generous amount of cheese and serve with crusty bread.
Sometimes the best recipes happen completely by accident. That's how this delicious soup happened.
It was late afternoon a few days after Thanksgiving when I realized that I had absolutely nothing planned for supper. The grandkids were getting hungry and it was either get in the kitchen and cook or go out.
Honestly, I was so tired I would have just skipped dinner rather than put forth the effort of making myself presentable for going out. So into the kitchen I went.
I started pulling out Thanksgiving leftovers that I thought might go together in a soup. And, my goodness, what a delicious soup it turned out to be!
All that leftover celery, onions, potatoes, and mushrooms combined with the turkey and stock made a flavorful and nutritious soup that we all thoroughly enjoyed. Even the kids. Though I did have to fish all the mushrooms out of their bowls. Still.
How to Make Turkey Mushroom and Potato Soup
This is one of the easiest soups you'll ever make. For real.
Start by sauteing some celery, onions, and mushrooms with butter in a soup pot. Then just add the stock, cream of chicken soup, potatoes, turkey, and seasonings.
Let that all simmer together just until the potatoes are cooked through. Top individual servings with grated cheese.
Serve with some crusty bread or crackers. Delicious every time!
