Leftover Soup...

Sometimes when I have a variety of small amounts of leftovers in the refrigerator, I use them to make "Leftover Soup."  It can be surprisingly good, and today was one of those days.  Here is what I pulled out of the fridge - a quart of bone broth, some oyster mushrooms that I found a week ago, leftover fried beef liver and onions, a little bit of corn, half an onion, and some mashed potatoes!  :)

First, I sauteed the onions and mushrooms in a little olive oil:
 Next I blended the potatoes with a little warm water and added that along with everything else in that first picture:
Then it was time to make a small batch of egg noodles - just one egg's worth:

1 egg
1/2 teaspoon salt
unbleached all purpose flour

Mix until a good firmish dough forms, knead until smooth and roll it out as thin as you can:

Then, using flour so it won't stick, roll it up and cup into rounds and plop them into the simmering soup:

I added 1.5 teaspoons salt
a few "cranks" of black pepper
1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning

Oh, my!  It's really good!

As usual, this is more about method than an exact recipe.  If you have some foods about to get too old, make some Leftover Soup out of them.  You might be surprised how good it can be!


  1. I have made soup like this in the past and of course it always depends upon what you started with, but it is usually very good. Thanks for a good reminder of using it all!

    1. I'm glad to know that you do this too!

  2. I love soup, especially soup with homemade noodles.
