Creamy Turkey and Wild Rice Soup
While this recipe calls for turkey breast, you can use any parts of the turkey you may have on hand. Reserved wings, thighs, back, or even a couple of turkey necks will work. You can also omit the raw turkey, cook the soup per the instructions, and when you stir in the cream add 2 cups of chopped leftover cooked turkey.
