Turkey Chowder: A great way to get rid of Turkey day leftovers

Updated: Dec 17, 2023

This simple recipe is great for next day holiday leftovers...

If you are a chowder lover then this recipe is for you. During the holidays I believe in mixing it up when it comes to holiday leftovers. Turkey meat is usually the protein that is leftover from all the festive fun. Some of you may have a few recipes that help like Turkey pot pie, or a turkey sandwich.

A great way to use Turkey meat it is with a chowder or stew.-GTG

But what about a Turkey chowder? Not only is it delicious for these cold days of the year, but it is also a great way of being equitable with your food.

Kids enjoy a chowder more than soup and stew. You can pair some really great biscuits and crackers with this flavorful and light dish. Don't take my word for it.

See for yourself.
