REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I made this recipe with my leftover Thanksgiving turkey. I changed the recipe slightly, but I think it would have been just as tasty had I stuck with the original ingredients. I had a lot of leftover turkey that I needed to get rid of, so I used 4 cups of turkey instead of 2. I also cut up too many potatoes, so it ended up being 3 1/2 cups. I used an additional 1/2 cup of chicken broth to compensate for my extra ingredients. I also added a cup of canned corn at the final step (when I mixed in the milk/cornstarch). This recipe is a going into our regular rotation of meals. It was so good and very easy to make.

I also added carrots and peas, but eliminated celery. Made it up last night, put it in the fridge and set it in the crock pot before we head to church. It'll be nice and warm when we get home for lunch. I used smoked turkey and it adds a nice flavor to the soup as well.

tasted like potato soup, and lacked color. Added 2 chicken bouillion cubes, more milk and chicken broth because it was to thick, and added a can of peas and carrots for color. The granddaughters liked it with biscuits.( creamed turkey with vegetables)
