Updated on December 3, 2010

Make a Scrumptious Turkey Pot Pie With Your Thanksgiving Leftovers

The Filling

The Upscale Version:

1 stick butter

1/2 cup all purpose flour

3 cups turkey or chicken broth

1 medium onion.chopped

1 1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms

3 cups chopped, cooked turkey

salt and pepper, to taste

1 pastry crust, homemade or store purchased

The Down Home Version:

1 stick butter

1/2 cup all purpose flour

3 cups turkey or chicken broth

24 oz. frozen peas and carrots

3 cups chopped, cooked turkey

salt and pepper, to taste

1 pastry crust, homemade or store purchased


To Cook ...

Melt butter in deep cast iron frying pan or pot. For the upscale version, chop onions and saute with sliced mushrooms until the onions are translucent, then stir in flour and cook, stirring, two minutes. Add broth. For the downhome version, saute peas and carrots briefly in the butter until broken up and warmed through. Then stir in flour and cook, stirring, two minutes. Add broth.

Note:add the last cup of broth and add it slowly. You might not want to use it all. By doing so, you can customize how thick you wish the pot pie's "sauce" to be.

Add turkey. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Turn into casserole dish and cover with pastry. Make several vents for steam to escape.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 - 35 minutes, or until pastry is cooked and golden.

Enjoy! This is the queen of comfort food!

      Too cool! I can make this recipe in my sleep, I think ... when I was little I always wondered how people could cook without a recipe but now that I am old, voila, I can do it too!
