Turkey Italian sausage and jalapeno peppers add kick to this chunky soup. "The original recipe called for a lot of butter and three cooking pots. I eliminated the butter and tossed the ingredients together in just one pot," says Guyla Cooper from Enville, Tennessee. "My husband really enjoys this meaty soup, so I make plenty and freeze what's left over in individual servings for his lunches."
For our Thanksgiving dinner, this moist golden-brown stuffed turkey is a treasured tradition. My grandmother used this recipe...and now my children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren enjoy turkey with us in the same savory way!

"While trying to reproduce my favorite soup from an Italian restaurant's menu, I hit upon this tasty combination of turkey sausage, broth and mushrooms," pens Thomas Licking of Green Lake, Wisconsin. Fennel, caraway seeds and herb seasoning give the quick-to-fix soup plenty of flavor without adding salt. Serve it steaming hot alongside a crisp salad and bread for a well-rounded meal.
Grape tomatoes and avocado chunks add pretty color and fresh flavor to this main-dish salad from our home economists. In a pinch, substitute half-and half or milk for the whipping cream, adding a teaspoon at a time until you get the desired consistency.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
