The Perfect Stock for Turkey Soup

Trying to Make Turkey Soup Recipes Taste as Good as MomMom’s

I know that the turkey soup recipes need flavorful stock. I didn’t bake a whole turkey, I decided to make it easy on myself and bake two turkey breasts. (Of course you can cook a whole turkey and add the giblets to the stock for even more flavor). The turkey breasts were simply, but amply, seasoned with salt and pepper. Once they were cooked I sliced them. We ate some of the meat for dinner, some of the meat I froze and some of the meat was saved to add to the soup. I always allow a bit of meat to remain on the bones while they cook to add flavor. I added carrots, a large yellow onion and celery to the stock, as well as a bay leaf, parsley pepper a bit of celery salt. I also add some of the chicken skin for added flavor. I did not let my stock come to a boil. MomMom’s turkey soup recipes say to not let the stock boil as it may turn it bitter. I let the stock simmer gently about 3 hours.

Delicious Williamsburg Inn Turkey Soup Recipe

Williamsburg Inn

Many years ago my husband and I visited the lovely Williamsburg Inn Resort & Hotel. We had a marvelous 4 night stay. We both enjoy visiting colonial Williamsburg, it’s such a trip back in time and we like the slower pace.

We especially enjoyed the accommodations and service we had at the inn and especially the dining. The Regency dining room is lovely and the food was spectacular.

This was in particular one of my favorite appetizers, the Williamsburg Inn Turkey Soup. For me it’s a no-brainer.  Once you add half and half to anything and it’s better, and this delicious soup is a perfect example.

Thai Turkey Noodle Soup

We love eating turkey all year round.  I don’t go all out and cook a whole turkey other than on Thanksgiving. The rest of the year I cook a turkey breast.

Turkey breasts average six pounds, and that’s solid meat. There are lots of ways to cook a turkey breast, it can be oven roasted, grilled, deep fried, cooked in a crock pot or on a rotisserie.

Turkey Soup Recipes – My Favorites

Turkey Soup Recipes are Treasured Heirlooms

My favorite turkey soup recipes came from my MomMom. She was my mother’s mother and was a wonderful cook. I have fond memories of her in the kitchen. She always wore an apron to protect her dress, and this was a time when women always wore dresses.

Some of my favorite things my MomMom cooked were her soups. We used to say they were thick enough to walk across, especially her turkey noodle soup.
