When leftover turkey happens turn it into this Turkey, Bacon & Corn Chowder for a filling, hearty soup.
Leftover turkey or chicken means new meals to create or old stand by’s will be made. Either way we love leftovers and the potential of some good eats in the days to come.
Today’s soup was both inspired from a similar soup by Curtis Stone (I got his cookbook for Christmas) and the desire to make a turkey soup with bacon. If you do not have any leftover turkey substitute roast chicken leftovers for an equally delicious tasting soup. But don’t forget the bacon!
I didn’t grow up eating chowder. My mom never made it and I had never heard about chowder of any sort until I moved to Vancouver. Chowder was a thing and came in many varieties. Adding cream to a soup was also a new concept for me but one that I latched onto quickly.
The flavour of this soup was spectacular to begin with, but when we finished it off two days later it seemed to taste even better. The addition of chilies adds a hint of heat….add more chilies if you want more spice in your soup. We enjoyed this soup and it has gone into rotation whenever there is leftover turkey in our house.
