Dad's Leftover Turkey Pot Pie
Left over turkey meat joins forces with peas, carrots, and green beans in a savory pot pie. The recipe makes 2 pies to feed a good-sized family or to have a pie for later.
I have made this pie every Thanksgiving for the last 5 years, and it never disappoints!! Everybody loves it and it's gone in the wink of an eye! All I do different is add some garlic and a little more dark meat. Fabulous!
I made this recipe the first time almost exactly as written. It was amazing. My husband ate almost half the darn pie himself. It is now his most favorite thing I ever made, and I have three of this pie in the oven as we speak. Only difference this time; chicken. So dang delicious.
I am a terrible cook! Nothing I cook turns out GOOD! Nothing!! However, this was the best!!!! I am so proud of myself. The best pot pie I have ever had!! I ate it for Breakfast, lunch, snack and dinner. I simmered my veggies a little longer, added canned cubed potatoes (that I drained), and added a little more chicken stock & milk at the end (only because it looked a little thick). I used Pillsbury frozen deep dish pie crust, and topped it with the Pillsbury roll-type pie crust for the top. (You can find this in the canned biscuit section. Two rolls came in the box). After putting the roll-type pie crust on top, I pinched the edges to make a design. This was beautiful. I am a firm believer to always use "name-brand" stuff, so I used Byrd's Eye Frozen Peas and Byrd's Eye Frozen green beans. Yumm! Yumm! Also, I did not put my pies in a pie dish, because the Pillsbury Frozen Deep Dish Pie Crust were already in a metal pie pan. I placed both pies on top of a baking sheet. Note: While I was preparing
This was outstanding. I have tried to make pot pies before, but never with much luck. However, this one had the perfect consistency and tastes amazing. I used frozen mixed veggies instead of just peas and carrots, and added a can of corn and about 3/4 cup carrots. I only had one Pillsbury pie crust box on hand, so I formed those into the bottom of a 9x13 casserole dish and baked it for 10 minutes while preparing the filling. Then I used a Pillsbury Seamless Dough Sheet for the top. I don't think I'll ever go back to the regular pie crust top again! Thanks so much for this recipe! Definitely a keeper I will make again and again.
Great recipe! i used frozen mixed vegs and simmer them in the broth that way they preserve the flavor the rest was like the recipe. my family loved it so much that i had to make it with chicken it was also great..
Really loved this. I halved the recipe to make one pie. I used a 10 ounce bag of organic frozen green beans, peas, carrots and corn. No other changes. It was delicious!
