Turkey Bisque Soup is the perfect solution to leftover turkey. It’s easy, delicious and creamy.
Turkey day almost here!! I am excited because I get to spend it with all my kids and grandbabies! Holidays with all of my children have become more and more rare so I plan on enjoying this one as much as I can!
Our menu will contain all of our family favorites. You can find our traditional Thanksgiving menu here.
We are planning on a turkey and a smoked turkey. I’m hoping there will be some leftovers so I can make this Turkey Bisque Soup again!
Don’t worry though if you don’t have any leftovers. This soup is just as delicious made with chicken as with turkey. It has a nice, light cream sauce thanks to a little bit of half and half. If you are dairy free, just leave out the 1/2 and 1/2.
The soup has plenty of nice flavor thanks to the carrots, green peppers, onion and parsley.
My husband mentioned that it would be yummy with some noodles added in too, I agree and will try it next time. This recipe was shared with me by a friend. It is a knock off recipe from a local Portland restaurant that is no longer around.
