Turkey Pot Pie

6 Dec

And the leftovers keep on truckin’ in our household…  Pot pies give new meaning to leftover meat, gravy, and vegetables as Thanksgiving remnants are encased in delicious pastry.  Thane Hubby had most of it because this *housecarl was too busy with turkey ramen (not pictured).

You’d think we’d be done with our turkey leftovers, but no.  We still have enough to make another dish, which will be the subject of another post.  ‘Til then, I hope you’ve found new and inventive ways to make your turkey come to life, so make like Victor Frankenstein and make turkey monsters.

Turkey Pot Pie

Turkey, cooked and cut into cubes
Carrots, cut into small cubes
Onions, cut into small pieces

Salt and pepper, to taste

Pastry dough/ two pie crusts

Preheat oven to 425 deg Fahrenheit.  Combine turkey and vegetables in a saucepan over low heat.  Season to taste.  Remove from heat and allow to cool.  Prepare pastry dough on pie pan, then add turkey mixture on the first crust.  Pour gravy over the mixture then top with second pie crust.  Make sure to cut a slit on the top crust.  Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until crust is golden and the gravy is bubbly.  Smile and serve.

    Good stuff! The filling would have also worked very well in pasties. Now why do I read this blog when I’m hungry and no where near food…

  2. Pumpkin Spinach Pie | Chronic Cravings - 14, March 2014

    […] There isn’t any other way to celebrate Pi Day than to have your pie and eat it too.  As my contribution to Pi Day, here’s a recipe for a vegetarian pie that would make Andy Foxtrot (Mom of Peter, Paige, and Jason Foxtrot) swoon.  I hereby present Pumpkin Spinach Pie using my favorite dough: phyllo.  I know it isn’t everyone’s favorite dough (*ahem*, I’m speaking to you, The Hubby) and I know the sheets come in rectangular shapes therefore creating a non-circular pie.  Before the math geeks bring out torches and pitchforks to persecute me, here’s a recipe for a circular pie.
