Yesterday, I made a pot pie. This is just a dish I put together (no recipe) a few years back. Scuba Man loves it! I guess you could say it’s make from scratch. It’s simple and easy. It’s our favourite way to use leftover turkey.
All you need is:
2 pie crusts (a top and bottom crust)
leftover turkey or any other leftover meat you chose – just make sure it’s already cooked
frozen mixed vegetables
turkey or other favourite gravy
To put together:
Put the frozen veggies out to thaw.
Roll the pie crust. I use the premade kind a lot, so I let it come to room temperature.
Cur the turkey into bite size pieces.
Mix the turkey and defrosted veggies in a bowl. The ratio of turkey to veggies is purely a personal choice.
Add the gravy, enough than you can tell there is gravy in there, but not enough to make it runny. I mostly use canned gravy if I don’t have any left from when I baked the turkey.
Stir it all well. Add whatever spices you like. For me that’s usually poultry seasoning, paprika, etc.
Put the bottom pie crust into a square cake pan. Fill with turkey and veggie mixture. Stuff it as much as you like. Place the other crust on top.
Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 1 hour for a fully stuffed pie. Uncover and bake 10 – 15 minutes more to brown the top crust. Serve.
This is simple and easy to make. I make up several at a time and freeze them. Even though most of the ingredients are store bought and not home made, it still tastes so much better than a frozen pot pie.
So there you have it. My first foodie post. And of course, I forgot to take a picture. Everyone who has tasted it has loved it and asked for the recipe. Enjoy!
