Stuffing Dumpling Soup

I've always loved turkey, dumplings and stuffing, so I combined them and added a punch of Creole flavor. My family loves it, even my little ones. It's got some kick, but a dollop of sour cream can mellow that out. —Relina Shirley, Reno, Nevada

    This recipe was delicious and easy to prepare just the way it is listed. My 13yr. old daughter actually made it the first two times we had it. We will definitely add this to our favorites!

    This was such a great idea for thanksgiving leftovers! I wish I had thought of this YEARS ago. Even my husband, who is pickier than my two year old, liked it. The only changes I made were to omit the mushrooms (because my husband hates mushrooms and there was already cream of mushroom in the stuffing) and I used homemade turkey stock instead of chicken broth. Thanks!

    My niece took one bite and said it tasted like Thanksgiving in a bowl. I wish I had more stuffing left! It was awesome!

    I had the perfect leftovers to make this soup, so I decided to try it. Mine was a roast chicken, so I subbed that for the turkey, skipped the mushrooms and doubled the broth since I like a soupier soup. This had a lot of flavor. I would probably season the dumplings - I used Stove top stuffing and they could have used some salt and pepper. All in all, this was excellent and different. Will definitely try again.
