Not really a turkey soup recipe but a great turkey leftover recipe Turkey Tetrazzini
1 1/2 cups chopped onions
7 tablespoons butter, divided
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 pound white mushrooms ends trimmed, sliced
1 1/2 teaspoons Seasoned Salt or Cajunshake
1/2 teaspoon freshly chopped thyme leaves
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup dry white wine or sherry
2 cups chicken stock (homemade is best but canned is good too)
1 3/4 cups HEAVY CREAM 16 ounces wide egg noodles
1 1/2 pound cubed or bite-size turkey
1 tablespoon freshly chopped parsley
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan
1 sleeve ritz crackers crushed
Saute the onions in 6 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over high heat until soft, about 4 minutes.
Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes, stirring. Add the mushrooms, seasoned salt or cajunshake , and thyme and cook
Stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms are soft and have released their liquid, about 6 minutes.
Sprinkle with the flour and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the wine and chicken stock and cook, stirring, until smooth and thick, about 2 minutes.
Add the heavy cream and bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat to medium and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon and very flavorful, 15 to 20 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the egg noodles until al dente, about 10 minutes.
Drain in a colander and set aside.
Butter a 9 by 13-inch casserole dish with the remaining tablespoon of butter and set aside.
When the sauce has thickened, add the noodles, turkey, parsley, salt, black pepper, and Parmesan to the skillet and stir until thoroughly combined.
Transfer to the prepared casserole and top with the cracker crumbs.
Bake uncovered until bubbly and golden brown, about 30 minutes. Serve immediately.
This is on my menu for the upcoming SNOW we are about to get, and also on my Christmas Eve menu, it is a dish I look forward to each and every year when there is left over smoked turkey.
