Greetings! Let’s use up that leftover turkey from Thanksgiving! I still have the carcass in the freezer and plan on making some good turkey soup after the new year, but now lets use up all that good meat and a wing and a leg and make some turkey stew in the crockpot!
I had made some good stock with the neck the gizzard and some veggies while I roasted the turkey and let that pot sit in the fridge so I could skim the solid fat off of it. I strained that right into the crock and put all the meat in there and put the wing and a whole leg in tact in there to lend good flavor to the stew. I threw in a few stalks of celery and few carrots and an onion that I rough chopped. Added in some Jane’s crazy mixed up salt and put on the lid set the crock pot to high and let that stew for a few hours, then I turned the crock pot down to low until I was ready to add in some homemade noodles.
I made my own noodles, which thickened up the stew nicely. You can add a can of cream of mushroom or cream of chicken soup and a bag of regular egg noodles if you like and just cook until they are tender. About 30 minutes.
You could leave out the noodles and thicken the stew with some creamed soup, some flour and water or some corn starch and water slurry. Serve over some noodles, rice, potatoes, corn bread or biscuits and you’ll have a hearty delicious meal that took little time, effort, money or ingredients to put together and it cooks itself!
This dish is perfect for using up turkey leftovers and it is also perfect for those busy nights around this time of year when you are trotting off to chorus concerts, band concerts, Christmas pageant and living nativity’s etc. This way you have a nice meal before you are off or after you return from all those fun holiday events.
I hope you will give this a try and I hope you love it!
