We smoke our own turkeys for friends and gifts. so I had to take the last one out of the freezer and since there are only us 2. I had to do something with the leftover and this was great. After 5 hours it seemed really watery so I let it set in the cold garage over night and in the morning it was perfect. I had two bowls for breakfast while I was packaging it. The husband who only likes noodle type soup loved it. Will make it again....Thanks for something new to do with left over somked turkey.

I think using cooked chicken (not smoked turkey) would probably have tasted better ... and less bones to deal with.

Just made it - it's perfect! I left out the potatoes

This was way too salty, I'll use mostly water instead of broth next time unless I have homemade. We added thyme and black pepper. Next time we'll just use 1 leg (1.5 lbs) and strip the flesh off first, it's way easier to when it's cold instead of steaming hot. Nutritious and filling, we'll make again.

This was as good, if not better than my mom's recipe! I followed the directions exactly, except I cut off the meat from the bone and added it.

This was the first time I've had split pea soup! I used a leek instead of the onion. Left out the potato, and used vegetable broth. It was so good, co-workers asked for the recipe.

This was a good base recipe that you could do a lot with. I used a ham bone but I'm sure the turkey would have been good as well.

Loved this easy recipe. My DH prepared this with leftover ham bone instead of the turkey. Cooked on high for 4 hours. Blended 1/2 to make it creamy but still had some texture with the peas and veggies. Used 2 cans low sodium chicken broth = 4 C and then the rest water. We added a teaspoon of chicken bouillon, a couple more shakes of garlic powder and a pinch of oregano with a splash of red wine vinegar prior to serving, just our taste. Really enjoyed it! Try it!
