About this recipe: A delicious way to make use of Christmas leftovers.
Great recipe. Family loved it. For the dumplings, I "cheated" and cut refrigerated biscuits dough in small pices and just dropped them in the broth. Turned out great!!! - 01 Jan 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I have made this several times and I think it is delicious --the dumplings are great. I've tried it with and without the rutabaga and now believe it does not matter whether it is there. Fresh parsley is a must. The salt for the broth needs to be reduced -- start by reducing it to half of what the recipe calls for and add according to your taste. I frequently add fresh or canned corn, garlic. I also like to add small noodles about 10 minutes before it is done, and frozen peas a minute or two before serving. This soup is comfort food, no doubt about it. If you are worried it might be to bland for you, I'd 1 1/2 x the onion for extra flavor...I have made this several times, sometimes using chicken instead of turkey. It is very good. - 19 Nov 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Yum. My darling husband, (some like to refer to him as "Mr. Clean" because he's so tidy) was being helpful by cleaning up and threw out the turkey carcus. I did however cut the recipe in 1/2 & used the leg & wings that were left and it turned out fine. I ran out of time so I didn't get to add the dumplings but I did add the parsley along with some Barilla Pipette pasta (somewhat like a macaroni noodle, a "new shape"). Very tasty, Thanks Christine! - 18 Nov 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
