Leftover Smoked Turkey Chowder

My husband and I discovered this recipe after having way too many Thanksgiving leftovers and getting sick of eating the same thing for days on end. By giving it a different format and introducing stock, it had all the flavors of the smoked turkey dinner but was visually unique so we could trick ourselves into thinking it was something new. I loved the way the mashed potatoes added a silky texture and how it came together as a chowder. Besides, you can’t freeze mashed potatoes; they just get grainy! Please enjoy.

Cook It Up:
An Upwork

A Foreword from the
Kitchen of Hayden Brown,
Upwork CEO

I deeply treasure that time around the table with my kids and loved ones. In our household, our kitchen table is a gathering place to share a meal, enjoy each other’s company, reflect on the day and laugh together.

With ‘Cook It Up,’ our Upwork Family Belonging Community has assembled a wonderful collection of recipes that celebrate the rich diversity of cultures we represent at Upwork. I truly enjoyed the personal memories that connect these dishes to the team members who shared them. This is a fun, approachable and sometimes touching look behind the “work curtain” that’s helped me — and I hope will help you — get to know our team even better.

I invite you to take a moment to browse the stories and recipes when you are looking for inspiration, a new way to connect with your colleagues, or just want to try something new. Most of all, I invite you to participate in the celebration of food, family, and life found here in Cook It Up.
