Momma’s Turkey Stew with Dumplings Recipe

Momma’s Turkey Stew with Dumplings Recipe

I love my slow cooker, especially during the holidays. My mother used to make this turkey stew every year with our Thanksgiving leftovers. The recipe is simple and really celebrates the natural flavors of good, simple ingredients. To this day, it is one of my favorite meals. — Stephanie Rabbitt-Schapp, Cincinnati, Ohio

"Made with leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. Delicious. I did add more spices to knock it up a bit. Would make again, great use for extra chicken or turkey, and love the use of the crockpot."

"With the addition of a few more herbs and increasing the poultry seasoning amount, this recipe is the one I use with both turkey and chicken for the basic stew. I like to make slick/flat dumplings though. Those fluffy dumplings tend to melt too readily."

MY REVIEW

"Simple and easy preparation. Instead of Turkey I used chicken leg quarters since I haven't done a Turkey yet. But, it will be a good recipe for later when I have the Turkey leftovers. As well, I don't have Bisquick on hand so I made easy scratch dumplings with Flour, Salt, Parsley, Butter and Milk."
