WW Recipe of the Day - Slow Cooker Thanksgiving Leftovers Turkey Soup
Looking for an easy way to use up all those Thanksgiving leftovers? Why not turn them into a Thanksgiving slow cooker leftovers soup? That's what I did about a week or so ago.
As you know I’m a big soup person. Soups are one of my secrets for staying slim. I love making soups because in addition to tasting good and being low in calories, they are an easy way to increase my vegetable intake.
How to Make Slow Cooker Thanksgiving Leftovers Turkey Soup?
I took what remained of the slow cooker turkey breast, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy sitting in the fridge and tossed them into my slow cooker. Then I added a package of mixed vegetables and stirred in some chicken broth.
It worked! After several hours on LOW, I was rewarded with a bowl of this steamy, tasty, satisfying slow cooker Thanksgiving leftovers soup.
It may not be the prettiest soup ever, but we all thought it was pretty darned good.
If you are like me and hate wasting leftovers, why not experiment with turning them into your own slow cooker leftovers soup? I would love to hear how it turns out for you.
