  2. Increase heat setting to High. Remove turkey and bones from slow cooker; discard skin and bones. Keep turkey warm. Stir vegetables and sauce.
  3. Combine baking mix, cheese and parsley in bowl; mix well. Add half & half. Stir just until moistened. Drop 8 rounded tablespoons of dumpling dough onto vegetables and sauce. Cover; cook 20-25 minutes or until dumplings are no longer doughy.

Recipe Tips

- 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; store in refrigerator until ready to use.

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

Yes, chicken can be substituted for the turkey in this recipe. Using a biscuit mix is another option for making the biscuits.
