In a small bowl, whisk together eggs, flour and 1/2 tsp. salt and black pepper to taste until smooth. Add leftover stuffing, and mix until well combined. Cover and reserve. Heat oil in a stockpot. Add diced onion and minced garlic. Cook until translucent, about 6 minutes. Add carrots, celery, thyme and broth. Cook until vegetables are soft, about 10 minutes. Wet hands and roll level tablespoons full of the dumpling mixture into balls. Drop into simmering soup; cook until dumplings float, about 3-4 minutes. Gently stir in turkey and corn; season with salt and pepper. Simmer until heated through.
