Turkey & Dumplings Recipe

  • 4 cups leftover turkey, cubed (white and dark meat)
  • 1 1/2 cup carrot chips
  • 1 cup celery, chopped (about 2 stalks)
  • 1 tbsp thyme
  • 1/2 tbsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. tumeric
  • 1 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 12 cups chicken broth
    For the Dumplings:

  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup chicken stock
    For the Gravy:

  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • 1 tbsp cold water
  • 4 cut hard boiled eggs

Combine turkey, carrots, celery, thyme, pepper, onion, and chicken broth in a large stock pot. Bring to a boil on high heat. Reduce heat to medium, cover and simmer for 30 minutes.

While the soup is simmering prepare the dumplings by combining flour, baking soda, salt, and chicken stock. Roll the dough out onto a floured surface about 1/4 inch thick. With a knife cut the dough into square, bite sized pieces.

After the soup has simmered for 30 minutes, drop dumplings in the soup one by one. Stir to prevent sticking and cook for an additional 5-10 minutes or until dumplings are at desired tenderness.
