  2. Increase heat setting to High.  Remove turkey and bones from slow cooker and discard skin. Keep turkey warm.  Stir vegetables and sauce.  In a small bowl, combine baking mix, cheese and parsley. Mix well.  Add half & half. Stir just until moistened.

  3. Drop 8 rounded tablespoons of dumpling dough onto vegetables and sauce.  Cover and cook for 20 to 25 minutes or until dumplings are no longer doughy.  Meanwhile, remove turkey from bones and keep warm.  Serve turkey with sauce and dumplings. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.

Alan's Kitchen Tip:

  • Make your morning prep even easier by slicing and chopping the onions, celery and carrots the night before. Place in covered container or resealable plastic food bags and store in refrigerator until ready to use.

  • Use caution when cooking meat on the bone in the slow cooker. Often the meat becomes so tender the bone falls away. Make sure small bones are removed from the turkey mixture.
