Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1 meaty turkey carcass
1/2 cup bacon drippings
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 large onions, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
4 stalks celery, chopped
2 qt. hot turkey or chicken broth
1 Tbsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper

dash of hot sauce
2 bay leaves
1 Tbsp. parsley flakes
1 tsp. dried basil leaves
2 to 3 cup chopped turkey
1 lb. smoked sausage, cut into bite size pieces

Place carcass in large soup kettle; cover with water. Bring

to a boil; cook over low heat 1 1/2 hours. Drain turkey;

reserve broth.

Remove meat from carcass; chop and set aside. Heat drippings

rich brown roux is formed, about 25 minutes. Add vegetables
