Crock Pot Turkey and Potato Chowder – Thanksgiving Leftovers

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

Tomorrow is the biggest and best holiday of the year, well, at least the biggest eating holiday of the year.  A few weeks ago Malik and I were shopping at Walmart and it was packed with people getting their Thanksgiving fixins’.

Their carts were filled with all the ingredients to make the perfect Thanksgiving meal to share with their family and friends.

Many people will overcook and then have leftovers for days so it’s important to find creative ways in which to make those leftovers appetizing.  Now I am not saying that a Turkey and Cheese sandwich with mayo and a slice of tomato isn’t appetizing, but there are other options.
As a small family of four, we always have Thanksgiving leftovers so in looking for creative recipes I found this one for a Crock Pot Turkey and Potato Chowder, but of course added a little twist based on my veggie preferences.
