Turkey Stuffing Dumpling Soup

Servings 4


  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced fresh carrots
  • 1 1/2 cups cut fresh green beans
  • 2 cups cooked turkey cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 cups cooked stuffing


  1. In a Dutch oven or large deep pan, saute mushrooms and onions in oil over medium heat until tender. Add garlic and cook one minute longer. Add broth, carrots, green beans, and seasoning. Bring to boil, then reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in large bowl whisk eggs and flour together until smooth. Crumble cooked stuffing into dough and mix well. If dough is dry, add water by 1 teaspoon at a time to moisten until mixture holds shape. Drop stuffing mixture by heaping tablespoons onto simmering soup. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until toothpick inserted into dumpling comes out clean (try not to lift cover while dumplings are cooking). Remove from heat and serve.

  1. Now, why the heck didn’t I ever think to do this? There’s always left over stuffing…or dressing as my Mom calls it. I am going to try it Jennifer. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I have this soup on the stove right now, the dumplings are just finishing. But instead of using fresh veggies, I am using almost all Thanksgiving leftovers (the stuffing, glazed carrots, green bean casserole, ham & turkey)! What an easy way to use up most of these leftovers that would otherwise probably go bad. The broth tastes amazing and the soup smells soooo good! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

    1. Hi Sarah! That’s a great idea to use all of your Thanksgiving leftovers in this soup! That way nothing goes to waste!

  3. I got a bad cold and had to cancel Christmas dinner, but had already made my delicious stuffing. Stuffing mix with apple, mushroom, onion, celery, fennel, sausage…it’s so yummy. Unfortunately, here I am, alone, with a pan full of stuffing, and there’s jst no way I can eat it all. I’m going to try the dumpling idea, mixing in a bit if egg to hold them together, along with my rich stock and a few fresh veggies. Sounds good to me.
    Merry Christmas
