Total time: 
Serves: 4-6
  • 32 oz. of chicken broth
  • 4 or more cups of leftover Thanksgiving turkey
  • 2 cups of leftover mashed potatoes (I used my recipe here.)
  • 1-2 cups of green beans
  • 1 cup of corn
  • ½ an onion, diced
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh oregano, leaves only
  • 3 fresh bay leaves
  • 4 large leaves of fresh sage, do not chop
  • 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • 1 Tbsp. of dried oregano
  • 1 Tbsp. of dried basil
  • 1 Tbsp. of garlic salt
  • 1 Tbsp. of pepper
  • Additional salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: Leftover stuffing
  • Topping: Breadcrumbs, fresh pepper and additional fresh herbs
  1. Add chicken broth and diced onions to a large pot of Dutch oven and heat on low.
  2. Add leftover turkey, mashed potatoes, green beans, corn and all fresh herbs and heat on low for one hour. If you’re adding stuffing feel free to add it at this point. However, if you add stuffing make sure to add extra chicken broth too as the bread in it will soak up a lot of the broth. If you decide to forgo the stuffing do not worry. The mashed potatoes will make this broth perfect and creamy
  3. Add dried herbs and continue to let it simmer for an hour. Add additional salt and pepper to taste now too.
  4. Remove from heat and serve. Top with bread crumbs, fresh herbs and freshly ground pepper if desired
