Use up your Thanksgiving leftovers to make this satisfying and delicious turkey, mushroom, and potato soup.
Sometimes the best recipes happen completely by accident. That’s how this delicious soup happened.
It was late yesterday afternoon 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 word, what a delicious soup it turned out to be! All that leftover celery, onions, potatoes, and mushrooms combined with the turkey and stock to make 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
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.
