Cook time


The smoked turkey was great, a bit salty, but I don’t use much sodium so I may be extra sensitive to the taste. I made the wild rice soup. The cook time is way short of how long I had to simmer mine. An hour and a half.

A favorite of everyone who tries it


We have been making this for years, and every year we get a Nueske’s smoked turkey breast expressly for this recipe. We find we don’t need the half-and-half. It is delicious and rich anyway. Make sure you cook the wild rice ahead of time, and then you won’t have problems with the cooking time. This freezes beautifully and is just wonderful on chilly Fall and Winter days.
