Easy Thanksgiving Soup Recipe

It’s cold outside in Texas, and we’re swapping Thanksgiving turkey sandwiches for our new go-to Thanksgiving leftover soup.  

For our Thanksgiving leftover soup we got creative by putting our favorite items in a turkey sandwich with ramen. 

To make it even more special we made homemade stuffing soup dumplings.

This recipe would be perfect for both our smoked turkey recipe and our mayo roasted turkey.  Our turkey recipes create a super juicy bird, so the broth sucks up the turkey flavor and combines well with the springy ramen noodles.  

We still haven’t made it to Japan yet, but ramen noodle soup is both of our all-time-favorite soups.  

Whenever we have leftovers of any kind, we love that we can add any proteins or toppings to a simple chicken, beef, or pork Maruchan ramen.

It will be ready in around 10 minutes, how easy is that?

There’s nothing better than a good ramen noodle slurp with quality toppings. 

What to make with leftover turkey?

Thanksgiving leftovers are almost as much of a tradition as the family dinner itself.  

Once we’re tired of the classic leftover sandwiches we turn up our creative side.  

This ramen has been an instant classic, and we’ve already made it multiple times.  

Outside of that our favorite leftover recipe to make is our leftover turkey mini pot pies.  

These mini pot pies cook up in a few minutes, and are so easy to make we even made them live on TV.
