Quick and Easy Left Overs Pot Pie
Who doesn't love quick meals that involve left overs? As Canadian thanksgiving was a week ago, you may still have some left over ham or turkey (or both!) like I do and wondering what types of different meals you can make without just eating your turkey as a sandwich or just in a regular meal with side potatoes and vegetables.
Why not make your leftovers into something fun like a pot pie? This pie can be made with any sort of left over meats, whether it is turkey, ham, chicken, beef, pork, you name it! You can basically combine any sort of meat in this pie! The best part is - this meal can be cooked in under 30 minutes!
- Leftover meat, turkey, ham, chicken, etc., chopped
- Pie crust
- 1 potato, diced
- Frozen Vegetables
- Cream of Mushroom soup
- Black pepper
- Cheese, shredded, optional
- Pre-heat your oven to 385 degrees celsius. Bring a pot of water to a boil
- Place diced potatoes in the pot for 5 minutes. Drain pot.
- Place potatoes, chopped meat, and frozen vegetables into the pie crust
- Pour cream of mushroom soup into a separate bowl and mix half a can of water into the soup.
- Pour soup mixture on top of ingredients in the pie crust and ensure all is covered.
- Grind pepper on top of ingredients
- If you have cheese, and love cheese, sprinkle some cheese on top of your pie.
- Place into the oven for 20 minutes and serve!
While you have the pot pie in the oven, why not throw in a side like homemade yam fries (yum!) or homemade french fries to cook alongside the pie so that you can have an extra side to your main? All this takes is:
- Either 2 good sized yams or 2 good sized potatoes
- Olive oil
Chop up your yam or potatoes (or both!) into french fry-like sizes. Place into an oven tray. Pour olive oil over the fries and sprinkle some salt. Toss the fries in the oil and salt and place into the oven alongside the potpie and it will make the perfect side to this dish! Of course, I also like to add an additional veggie side to complete the meal so why not boil up some vegetable like broccoli or cauliflower and you've got yourself a full well-balanced meal that can all be done within 30 minutes! Who doesn't love a quick tasty meal on a weekday after work?
