Quick and Easy Turkey Noodle Soup
First, decide how much turkey is needed. When buying a whole turkey, figure approximately 12 to 16 ounces per person. When buying a turkey breast, either bone-in or boneless, check the serving size listed on the package as it may vary.

Next, pick the turkey. A number of options are available, making it easy to find the right one for everything from a small group of friends to a large family gathering. For the novice cook, or the skilled chef looking for additional convenience, Jennie-O Turkey Store has introduced its line of Oven Ready turkey products. These products go from freezer to oven with no cleaning and no thawing, and include traditional whole turkeys, half turkeys and turkey breasts.

Once the turkey is cooked, it is time to carve it. Rest the turkey for about fifteen minutes prior to carving, so the juices have a chance to settle and it is easier to carve. Always use a sharp knife. For a whole turkey, first remove the legs then use horizontal and vertical cuts to remove the breast. Continue carving to desired serving sizes.

One of the best things about a turkey feast is the leftovers. Leftover turkey is a great ingredient for a number of dishes, including stir-fries, soups and salads. Quick and easy turkey noodle soup is a delicious recipe that the entire family will enjoy.
