It's Thanksgiving Day and before long a lot of you probably have leftover turkey staring you in the face, so I've updated this post from 2013 with my picks for the Top 10 Recipes for Slow Cooker Turkey Soup (plus Honorable Mentions). These are all turkey soup ideas that are a bit more interesting than the usual carrots, celery, and noodles turkey soup variations that often show up after Thanksgiving.

But first, did you realize that turkey and chicken are pretty much interchangeable in soup recipes?  So if you have leftover turkey, you can use a recipe that calls for leftover chicken, and if you don't have leftover turkey you can use leftover chicken instead.  You can also substitute diced, cooked turkey in pretty much any recipe that calls for cooked ground turkey, but add the cooked turkey towards the end of the cooking time so it doesn't all shred apart. 

And Happy Thanksgiving weekend everyone; hope you enjoy the Slow Cooker Turkey Soup ideas! I'm going to be taking a few days off here while I enjoy Thanksgiving with my family, but I'll be back next week with some slow cooker ideas for Christmas.

  3. Kayln-I have a question. This is my first visit to the crock pot site and I am slightly confused. Are these supposed to be "diet friendly" recipes or only if they say so in the labels at the bottom? Looking at some of these I don't think they're obviously diet even though they all sure do look good!

    1. Susan, you can sort recipes by diet type by clicking Recipes by Photo and picking the type of diet you want. And the tagline "Healthier Recipes from Food Blogs" refers to the idea that these recipes don't contain processed foods, therefore they are "healthier" than many crockpot recipes out there. But definitely not every recipe is suitable for all diets.
