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
