In the Wild with Greg Wagner


KLUVER’S WILD TURKEY NOODLE SOUP: GOTTA TRY IT! by Greg Wagner

Want to try a completely different but very tasty recipe with that wild gobbler you harvested this spring here in Nebraska? Well, have I got a recipe for you to try! WOW!  This delicious recipe for wild turkey noodle soup was given to me by my good friend and longtime turkey hunter Charles (Chuck) Kluver of Omaha, NE and I want to share it with you! Seriously, you gotta try it! Chuck says feel free to make your own adjustments to the recipe as I did.

KLUVER’S WILD TURKEY NOODLE SOUP   

Serves 8. Cooking time 45 minutes

8 oz. egg noodles (Kluski egg noodles preferred)

6 C canned chicken broth

4 T butter

1  3/4 C Cooked and diced wild turkey

1 C cooked peas (optional)

4 T red/green diced peppers

3 T diced celery

1/2 tsp minced garlic

Salt/pepper to taste

Bring 2 qt of water to rapid boil. Add noodles and boil for 7-8 minutes, stirring frequently. Check for the desired tenderness. Drain and set aside keeping 2 C of the water. In large stock pot, melt butter. Add all ingredients except noodles and liquids. Cover and saute over medium heat for 10 minutes. Add noodle water, chicken broth and cooked noodles. Simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve with warm hearth rolls or slices of homemade bread. Enjoy!
