Jack's Turkey Leftover Recipe No. 3: Turkey Stew

This is one of my personal favorites for Leftover Turkey. Fast and easy to make, you can freeze the what's left.

In a large pot (5 quart or bigger with lid)
Add the left over Turkey Gravy and pan drippings (strain first) – you will need about 2 quarts.
Add one can of chicken stock.
Add 1 1/2 can of water.
Add in one whole onion, I prefer a yellow onion chopped.
Add 2 cloves of finely chopped garlic (optional).
Add about 1 Tablespoon of L&P Sauce.
Add about 1 Teaspoon of table salt.
Add about 1 Teaspoon of fresh ground black pepper.
Add in some fresh copped garden Parsley, about 2 tablespoons.
Add in 1 or 2 Bay Leaves.
Cover with lid.
Bring to a boil.
Add two stalks of fresh celery, cut length in half and then into diagonal small 1 inch pieces.
Add about a cup of Baby Carrots.
Add in Two Fresh Mushrooms (sliced), I prefer the brown button mushrooms but the button whites will do.
Cook for about 20 minutes on medium heat, stir as needed.
Next – add a bag of frozen peas.
Cook for another five minutes.
Next – Add two cans of small white Whole Potatoes (cut in half or buy them pre-sliced in can).
Add the remaining Turkey Meat (de-bone first), best to use the Dark Meat if possible, use about one pound.
Cook on low heat for about five to ten minutes.
Stir gently.
Taste, add additional salt and pepper as needed.
Remove Bay Leaves.
Serve in soup bowls.

Some Serving Ideas:
Place on top of Bread with a side order of Mash Potatoes –or- just eat plain from a bowl.

If you need it to be more on the liquid side add an additional can of Chicken Stock plus one full can of water (do not add salt)
You can Freeze what portion of the ‘Turkey Stew’ you don’t eat. It will keep for several months. I put my frozen foods in Tupperware in the 2-quart tubs.
