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.

I LOVE this recipe! We always have 'leftover hash' - casserole using the leftover turkey, stuffing, potatoes and grave. It's just SO heavy! I love the idea of thinning it out / lightening it up by adding broth and then vegetables...Thank you for the recipe!!!
I haven't tried it yet, but based on my families love for the 'leftover has' I am guessing this willbe a 5STAR recipe at our house!
About 30 minutes before serving I stir in a can of 'whole-berry' cranberry sauce when I make a soup like this. (But i imagine that does a number on the calorie count!)

I made this last year and it was yummy. I don't have leftovers this year but I shared the recipe with my daughter who plans to make it tomorrow with her leftovers! Great stuff...might not be pretty...but oh so tasty!
This recipe is delicious and easy to make.
Absolutely delicious! What a great way to use the leftovers after you’re tired of the leftovers, lol. Thank you for the recipe!!
I love your site for a number of reasons...encouragement, recipes and just plain because it's so GOOD.
I love soup and it is filling, however, the broth makes me bloat like nobodies business and kills my positive felling the minute I step on the scale and see my weight is up 3 pounds or more and my feet swell at night.
Please do you have any soup recipes that don't require broth? Even the low and no sodium versions are not my friend. I also notice many of the slow cooker recipes also use broth. Help, please.
Thank you for your site...you have helped many to succeed.
Hi Sheri, you could always substitute water for broth in any recipe and then just add/adjust seasonings to suit your tastes. Hope this helps. ~Martha
This soup sounds amazing! Any suggestions for those of us using a 6 or 6.5 slow cooker? Would doubling the amounts work and would the cook time be increased? Can this sould be frozen? Thank you!
Hi Lyn, I think the recipe would be fine in a larger slow cooker. It just might be done sooner. Ideally your slow cooker should be at least 1/2 full. Hope this helps. ~Martha
