This hearty soup starts with our homemade turkey stock and is then combined with diced vegetables, fresh herbs and turkey breast. Everything is thrown into the crock pot, making this tasty soup a great option for leftovers the next day.

A whole turkey is one of my favorite things to cook during the holidays. I love to roast a whole turkey in the oven or cook a delicious turkey on the Traeger.
