This creamy turkey soup recipe is a delicious way to use up leftover turkey after a holiday feast. This homemade turkey soup is so simple to throw together, you and your family are going to love it. Want to add a little extra pizazz to the meal? Serve it in a bread bowl.
In a large stockpot heat the butter over medium heat.
Add the onions, celery, and carrots. Saute until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.
Add garlic, potatoes, rosemary, and thyme. Stir until fragrant (about 1 minute).
Sprinkle the flour (or arrowroot powder if gluten free) over the vegetables and stir.
Add the chicken broth (or leftover turkey stock), leftover turkey breasts, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer on low for 20-25 minutes.
Add cream, heat through, taste and adjust seasonings.
For the bread bowls
Slice the top off of the sourdough buns and scoop out the inside. Don't take out too much as you want some support for the soup. I recommend taking out half the bread, then pushing the rest down to form a barrier.
