I thought I’d share this recipe in case any of you had some leftover turkey and were looking for ideas on how to use it. This recipe is one that you can freeze for a later date when you are hungry for some of that yummy turkey again!
96 oz. of Turkey or Chicken Broth
1/2 Teaspoon of Salt
1/2 Cup of Diced Onion
1/4 Teaspoon of Pepper
1 lb. of Frozen Noodles (I love the ones by Reames in the freezer aisle)
1/4 Cup of Flour
1 1/2 Cups of Milk
4 Cups of Cooked Turkey
How To Make:
In a large pot, heat broth to boiling. Add salt, onion and pepper. Add frozen noodles and bring to a boil again. Then reduce heat to keep from boiling over but let it still bubble freely. Cook for 10 minutes. In a bowl, stir flour and milk together and then add to the bubbling pot. Cook until the juices are somewhat reduced and slightly thickened. Add turkey. Salt to taste. Cool.
Once cooled, divide into the portion-size that you like and freeze. Don’t forget to label and date your freezer bag!
When you want to make this on a later day, thaw, remove from freezer bag and then reheat in a saucepan on low heat or you can also reheat in a microwave-safe bowl in the microwave.
If you want a little color and veggies, you can consider adding some peas or carrots to it.
I typically make this and serve it over a nice heaping of mashed potatoes. It makes for a great meal just like that.
Thanks to 30 Day Gourmet for this recipe! It’s become one of my favorites that I make with any of our leftover turkey.
