A Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker Solution For Thanksgiving Leftovers

Nov 10, 2016


Ahh, the day after Thanksgiving – my favorite. My family loves to go all out on Thanksgiving and I’m so excited to be heading home to Kentucky this year to celebrate. It’s not often that my brother, sister in law and Trevor’s call schedule allow a full holiday off so this will be the first time the entire family will be home! Normally, my parents make their way up to Chicago and everyone is in and out of work, so I am really looking forward to this year.

The day of, we will spend all morning in the kitchen. My mom usually whips up a few Indian dishes and I help with the classics. We usually all come together for a late lunch followed by lots of couch time and movies. We are currently trying to all agree on a new TV series to binge watch, so if you have any suggestions send them my way!

It’s amazing just how tired all that turkey and stuffing can make you. We always plan on staying up late watching movies but are usually in bed by 8, anyone else? 

The next day is always a fun one. We relax, play board games and often catch up with childhood and family friends. I’m not sure if your family is like mine, but if so you always have a ton of Thanksgiving leftovers. I always find it so challenging to find new and fun ways to make use of them besides a traditional turkey sandwich. I’m also always trying to find healthy ways to utilize those leftovers since I often feel overstuffed and heavy after. 

This turkey corn chowder recipe is not only an easy Crock-Pot® slow cooker meal, it helps utilize so many leftovers and provide something healthy and filling to have over the next few days. I used turkey in mine but you can always substitute in ham or chicken if your family prefers one over the other.

This recipe is nice because the last thing anyone wants to do the day after Thanksgiving is cook! Everything can be dumped into your Crock-Pot® slow cooker and left on for just two hours. You can always pair it with leftover dinner rolls or any extra veggies you have on hand for added fiber. 

What do you guys love to cook after Thanksgiving? Hope this helps with your holiday planning and adds some ease to those day after plans!
