Today’s recipe is sponsored by our friends at Jennie-O. What better way to celebrate Thanksgiving? 🙂


T-minus one week and one day until Thanksgiving!!

And you know what that means?

Leftovers.

And you know what that means?

Getting creative in the kitchen, because if I have to eat ONE more turkey sandwich I may die of food boredom (unless it’s like a reeeeeeeally good sandwich I mean).

And you know what that means?

Leftover Turkey Corn Chowder made in the crockpot!

This recipe is a fun twist on a classic and the perfect way to use up some of your Thanksgiving leftovers. Throw in the extra turkey, that random can of corn leftover from your favorite creamy corn casserole, and all the leftover vegetables you’ve been storing in the back of your fridge!

It’s cozy, it’s creamy, and it’s officially one of my new favorite ways to use leftovers!

Soup’s on!

Guess what?

I just made my very first whole turkey! I’ve always been super intimidated, but thanks to Jennie-O and their OVEN READY Cajun Style Whole Turkey, it was super easy.

You literally take the whole turkey out of the freezer and throw it into your oven for about 4 hours.

No defrosting necessary and I think that’s absolutely GENIUS.

Plus, it’s already seasoned, sooooo yeahhhhh, I highly recommend picking up one of these bad boys if

A. You’ve never made your own turkey before

B. You forgot that Thanksgiving was next week and need a last minute turkey

C. You want something easy and delicious, so you can think about one less thing on Thanksgiving, because let’s be real, all those side dishes and desserts you’re making take a LOT of prep.

So, I made my first turkey. Wahoo!

But what to do with the leftovers? I mean, there’s only two of us here.

The solution – Leftover Turkey Corn Chowder!

Trevor LOVES corn and I LOVE my crockpot, so it just seemed like a good idea.

Simply throw all your ingredients into your slow cooker: butter, onion, carrots, celery, sweet potato, corn, corn, and more corn 😉 , chicken broth, and spices.

You’ll let that cook for a bit and in the last 30 minutes to an hour of cook time, you’ll whisk in your leftover turkey, half and half, and cornmeal.

The result is an ultra flavorful, super easy Leftover Turkey Corn Chowder!
