A batch of this soup brings the nostalgic flavors and heartwarming feel of the holidays at any time of year. When I have time to slow-cook it, my whole house smells cozy. —Radine Kellogg, Fairview, Illinois

    Very tasty. I was looking for something to use leftover turkey that didn’t have a lot of carbs and calories. I was not disappointed. Since I only had ground sage on hand, I used less than the recipe called for.

    I really enjoyed this recipe and will make it again.It is quick, easy, cost effective, nutritious, and versatile. I can imagine adding roasted or jarred red bell pepper and/or green chilies with southwest seasonings, or adding some rice. I sauteed 1/2 a purple onion with herbes de provance in the saucepan before adding the remaining ingredients to add a savory component, used chicken stock, and added 1t of low fat sour cream to each serving for richness and body. I doubled the recipe, assembled the soup and put it in the oven on a delayed start mode. When I returned from picking up our baby grand daughters from daycare, we had a hot delicious meal for my husband and me and my daughter's family. The eight-month-old loved the turkey and sweet potato smashed with a little broth. That's a home run in my household!

    Just too sweet. I like sweet potatoes and corn but the combination was terrible. Neither of us liked it and we did not even finish it.

    Having grown my own sweet potatoes this year (yes, just south of Buffalo NY)I have been searching for recipes to use them in. I followed the recipe exactly and loved it!! Will be adding this to my collection.

    I made this recipe and thickened it a little bit more by adding less liquid and placed a crust on top and baked it like a pot pie. It was a big hit!!!!

    I added a little butter since I didn't have 2% milk (used skim instead). I also used fresh rosemary instead of the sage. It was very yummy!
