Leftover Thanksgiving turkey and corn chowder

It's that time of year again.

Thanksgiving has come and gone. You've already had reheated turkey twice, and you just cannot even think of having it a third and last time… Look no further, this is an awesome new way to use your Thanksgiving leftovers.

Here's how I made this delicious chowder out of my leftovers :)

INGREDIENTS (2-3 people):

- leftover turkey meat, shredded or diced
- 1/2 to 1 cup leftover gravy, but feel free to use more or less according to what you have left!
- 4 to 8 cups chicken, vegetable or turkey broth, depending on how thick you want the chowder to be (I used chicken bouillon, since that is what I had on hand)
- 1 large carrot, 1 medium onion and a few branches of celery, diced finely in a mirepoix
- kernels from 2 ears of fresh corn
- 1/4 cup AP flour
- 2 tbsp butter
- a sprig of thyme

- in a deep skillet, stockpot or dutch oven, melt the butter and saute the carrot, onion and celery over medium heat until soft

- make a roux by adding the flour and cook it over low heat for a couple of minutes

- add the gravy and broth and stir over medium-low heat until thickened, then add the corn kernels and the shredded/sliced turkey meat and stir until well combined

- bring to a simmer over low heat for a few minutes, or until warmed through

- serve hot alongside a nice thick slice of grilled sourdough or buttered cornbread
- enjoy!
