    barefootcountrygirl's Note:

    I tried this chowder after an ice skating party, and when I went back for more it was long gone. It is rich and creamy and absolutely melts in your mouth. It is expected and devoured at every family gathering I have, there is never any left over, and always people asking for more.

      I improvised a bit with this- adding chopped red bell pepper, corn, a small finely chopped potato, and some other spices (primarily thyme and curry). I also used 2% milk in lieu of half-and-half, which worked just fine and added the couple Tbs of gravy that we had left over from cooking the turkey. Oh- I also used between 1 and 1.5 cups of turkey instead of two (all I had) and it was plenty, especially with the additional veggies I added. The thing I like about chowders and soups in general is that you can fiddle a lot with the recipe with excellent results. Anyhow, this is a great basic recipe and a terrific and a little non-traditional way to use up leftover turkey! Thanks for posting.

      I've had this recipe in my "to try" cookbook for SEVEN years. Finally made it last night with leftover t-day turkey and it was great. Since I suspected we'd like it just from reading the recipe, I made a double batch and am glad I did. Only changes I made were to use chopped yellow onion (didn't have any green) and added a teaspoon of garlic salt because I thought it needed more flavor (but I have a blown sinus gasket that affects my taste buds so keep that in mind:). This is definitely a keeper for us!! Thanks BFCG, wherever you are!

      Excellent chowder. I followed the base recipe and added finely diced potato and a big splash of white wine. I added a bit more white pepper and a dash of thyme. I used half 1% milk and finished with the half & half. I think next time I will add some green or red pepper. Pretty color, great recipe for using up that gallon of turkey broth from T'giving. Thanks for the recipe, will make again.
