We love making new recipes out of leftover food, especially Thanksgiving leftovers!  We’ve made Apple and Almond Stuffed Pork Chops with leftover stuffing.

From leftover ham we’ve made Cheesy Potato & Ham Casserole, as well as Ham Fried Rice and Ham & Cheese Croissant Breakfast Casserole.

We’ve used leftover Sweet Potato Casserole to make Sweet Potato Muffins, and of course we’ve made Turkey Noodle Soup from leftover turkey.  To change things up from the regular Italian seasoned turkey noodle soup, we’ve made this one super creamy, with cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese, and cream cheese.

This Creamy Turkey Noodle Soup recipe is filling.  You could pair it with bread on the side, but you definitely don’t need to.  If you want to add bread, try this super easy 4-ingredient Soda Bread, this delicious Honey Oatmeal Bread, or this 4-ingredient Crusty Bread.

I was inspired by this recipe, but changed it up a bit. I attempted to make it as easy as possible, but still keep it made from scratch and full of flavor.
