  1. Place the turkey, onion, celery, potatoes, carrots, corn, poultry seasoning, onion powder, and garlic powder into a slow cooker, and pour the chicken stock over the turkey and vegetables. Mix well and season to taste with salt and black pepper. Set the cooker on Low, cover, and cook until the vegetables are tender, about 6 hours.
  2. Whisk the flour, baking powder, and 1 teaspoon of salt together in a bowl, and mix in the melted butter. Stir the dumpling dough until it begins to firm up, 1 to 2 minutes. Drop the dough by tablespoon into the simmering soup. Replace lid; simmer about 15 minutes.

My husband and I both enjoyed this soup. I thought that 2T of poultry seasoning was a little too much, I will use less next time (I could taste it a little more than I would have liked). Also - the 2T of melted butter wasn't enough liquid for the dumplings so I had to add water to the mixture - but they were fantastic dumplings! We would definitely make it again, it was very easy and tasty. My husband recommended thickening and putting in a pie crust.

The dumpling mix is way off. You'll def have to add milk or water - probably about 1/4 cup! Also, 1 tsp salt in only 1 c flour!? Darn! I should've thought about that before I made them. They are sooooo salty! Also, 2 Tbspn's poultry seasoning is A LOT! I doubled everything else, but only used 2 heaping TSPN's of it and it seemed to be plenty. Not a bad mix of ingredients, but you'll need to adjust the proportions.

I followed the directions, mostly, I didn't use any of the poultry seasoning as it stated, I used fresh garlic instead of the powder. I also had to use some water for the dumplings as another had stated. I didn't have time to cook it for 6hrs so I cooked it on high for 4hrs and put the dumplings in for the last 30 min, I let the dumplings cook for 15min then took them out and thickened the soup with corn starch and water as my hubby doesn't like thin soups. Once I thickened the soup, I put the dumplings back in the crock pot and con't to let them simmer for 15min. My hubby said it was the best turkey soup he had tried, even better than his grandma's which is a huge deal. Happy cooking!!

Excellent!! I used box biscuit/dumpling mix instead of the dumpling recipe since there were some that altered it. Total hit with everyone!!

I always add more dumplings but either way this is far better than chicken and dumplings and my family loves it. i make it every year at this time using left over turkey that I put in the freezer.

I made this and thought it was yummy!!! The dumpling recipe was a little off but I kept adding melted butter until it was doughy. Thank you for the recipe.

I made this from scratch by boiling a turkey carcass for 4 hours and using the broth in place of canned stock and the poultry seasoning- it is much healthier and tastier that way. I'll use this again with chicken bones as well. I've never had dumpling soup before, and it turns out we quite liked it. From now on I will choose dumplings in my soup over noodles. I did have to simmer them for about 30 minutes to get them fully cooked, though.

I really wasnt impressed with this. Smelled GREAT, but was kind of bland to me.
