Day-After Turkey Soup

Day After Turkey Soup

What is better after you have had all those turkey sandwiches? Soup of course!
I made a Day-After Turkey Eggs Benedict for breakfast (sorry I did not take pics of it, but it tasted awesome, I will make sure to post it next time). There was plenty of turkey meat left to make this simple but yummy soup this year with the leftover Thanksgiving turkey.
