What’s better than a Christmas turkey dinner? This soup!

Fluffy clouds of potato gnocchi, tender bites of turkey, a touch of bacon and jalapeño swimming in a sea of rich broth.

It is super simple make and takes only 35 minutes.

1 onion, diced small
3 cloves of garlic, finely diced
4 cups of chicken broth
1 1/2 cups of diced turkey
3 slices of bacon, finely diced
1 jalapeño, diced finely
2 cups of gnocchi, sliced in half
1/2 cup of half and half
A pinch of cayenne

In a large pot melt a little bit of butter or oil and sauté the onions, garlic and bacon. After 5 mins add the stock/broth and jalapeño. Simmer 30 mins. Add half and half and reduce heat to low. Add cooked gnocchi (cook gnocchi in a pot of salted water for approx 1-2 mins and drain) to soup. Taste to check for seasonings.
