Crock Pot Turkey and Potato Chowder – Thanksgiving Leftovers

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.
turkey chowder ingredients
  • 4-5 cups of Red Potatoes
  • 3 tsp Minced Garlic
  • 1 cup Onions, chopped
  • 1 bag frozen Mixed Veggies (corn, peas and carrots)
  • 1/2 bag frozen mixed Sweet Peppers
  • 3 Sprigs of fresh Thyme – remove from stems
  • 3-4 cups of cooked Turkey
  • 4 cups of Chicken Broth
  • 4 tbsp of Corn Starch
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
corn starch and chicken broth

    You sure come up with yummy looking recipes!!! Looks like I need to learn how to cook for one now. Unfortunately my husband lost his battle with cancer on Veteran’s Day. It is still hard to believe he is gone. I am so glad that tomorrow I get to go to my best friend’s house for Thanksgiving! I keep very busy so I don’t get too depressed! Happy Thanksgiving sweetie!
