What to do with leftover turkey bones from Christmas?

I hope by now you've finished the Christmas leftovers. I kept the turkey bones from our Christmas lunch to make a stock with some onions, carrots, black peppercorns and bay leaves.

Today, I used the stock to make turkey congee (rice porridge) for lunch. Quick and easy, garnish with some fried wantan skin, spring onions (shallots) and julienne ginger. Yummilicious!


  1. Hee... I used the meat and made fried noodles. We boiled "Harm choi" tong with the bones. It was sooo delicious!

    All gone within 2 days. "twas such a big bird too..almost spoilt my turnspit!

    Happy New Year, Charmaine!!!

  2. Looks delicious! We didn't do turkey this year but my MIL has saved the ham bone to make pea and ham soup later in the year :)

    Hope the New Year is treating you well.
