The Gobble Feast table at WoodPellets.com

There’s nothing better than a fridge full of leftovers after Thanksgiving! We throw a Gobble Feast bash here at the office every year to celebrate the season, and I am thankful that wood pellets aren’t the only thing we’re experts at… we have some truly talented chefs on our team! So I asked around to see what the folks here do with their turkey leftovers, and here are some of our finest recipes.

We’d love to see your favorite recipes here, and happy Thanksgiving from the team at WoodPellets.com!

Corey’s Homemade Turkey Soup

Making turkey soup can seem intimidating at first, but all that effort is well worth it by far!

This recipe is to taste and pretty forgiving, so don’t worry about exact measurements as you can cater to what you prefer. It makes a lot, so you can store the soup in your freezer and enjoy it throughout the winter season, by warming up with it and sitting next to your cozy pellet stove.

Corey's Homemade Turkey Soup

First things first, which is to make your homemade stock: Chop 2-3 large onions.  Remove all the meat from the remains of the turkey and set aside to refrigerate.  Place the carcass in a large stock pot and add water.  Add the onions as well as salt/garlic salt and pepper to taste.  Bring the water to a boil.  After that, reduce the temperature to a simmer.  Allow to simmer for several hours . . . the longer the better!

Once cooled, remove the carcass from the pot.  You will then need to strain the remains with a colander or cheese cloth.

Afterwards, you will need to chill your stock.  You can do so by leaving it outside, in a garage, or in the refrigerator overnight.  After chilled, you will need to remove the fat that has surfaced to the top.

Making your soup: At this time, you can then heat your stock back up.  Add the meat that you have set aside.  Then cut up your favorite vegetables.  The staple favorites are usually carrots & celery.  Feel free to get creative and use as much as you desire.  Once the vegetables start to soften, add several cups of orzo for your starch.  The orzo really thickens the soup, and is what my mother always used when she taught me how to create this wonderful homemade recipe.

Serve with salt a pepper to taste, but chances are you already made your turkey soup to perfection!

Audrey’s Turkey Chili

Every year, my mom makes a huge pot of chili with leftover turkey. She usually makes it up as she goes, so it’s a little different every time and this recipe is my closest guess. This chili is filled with healthy superfoods, and it is just stick-to-your ribs delicious at this time of year!

Audrey's Turkey Chili

Ingredients:

  • 2 C mixed, chopped veggies – onion, green pepper, and celery
  • 1 T minced garlic (or more to taste)
  • 2 T chili powder, 1 T cumin, 1 T oregano, salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 28-oz can stewed tomatoes
  • 2 16-oz cans light red kidney beans, rinsed & drained
  • 4 C shredded leftover turkey (white & dark meats)

Saute the veggies & garlic in olive oil over medium-high heat until they are soft. Add spices & tomatoes, and simmer until the tomatoes start to break up. Add the beans and turkey and heat through. Serve with shredded cheese, sour cream, tortilla chips, or chopped fresh chives – whatever you like!
