  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 2 carrots, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 ounce Canadian bacon, chopped
  • 3 cups fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 3 cups chopped cooked turkey (about 1 pound)
  • 2 1/2 cups mashed cooked peeled baking potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Sage sprigs (optional)

Preparation

1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion, celery, carrots, and bacon; cook 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add broth, turkey, potatoes, and chopped sage, stirring with a whisk until blended; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Stir in pepper. Garnish with sage sprigs, if desired.

While Canadian bacon has a fraction of the calories and slightly more protein than regular bacon, it is higher in sodium. You can substitute pancetta.
