Thanksgiving Leftovers! Turkey, Bacon & Black Eyed Pea Soup (Photos)

When you have that beautiful carcass with beautiful chunks of meat all over, pieces of the bacon that was wrapped around it stuck here and there and the delicious bits stuck to the bottom of the pan, soup is necessary!

I soaked a handful of dried black eyed peas overnight so they'd be ready to roll today.

You can make soup with almost everything. I had half of a small cabbage, a handful of Brussels sprouts, red onion, celery, carrots, peas, and a 1/2 cup of barley.

Put everything into to the pot, add water, don't completely cover because the veggies will make some liquid.

I let it simmer for 1.5 hours, covered. I went through with tongs and picked out the bones. Serve hot with crusty bread. If there's any left, it freezes beautifully for a meal on a chilly day!!


Go, eat!!
