What better way to use up leftover holiday foods than in a pie chuck full of delicious leftovers.

We usually have a prime rib on Christmas Day with beans, corn peas with maybe baked potatoes for side dishes.

I plan the meal that day so I can make this fabulous pot pie that everyone loves in my family and they actually look forward to it!

This one is done with a leftover prime rib with a beef Marsala gravy.

It's over the top amazing! I will give you easy step by step instructions for making this from scratch or semi-homemade.

It's true Comfort food and repurposing leftovers all in one big casserole baked makes the meal like it was made again for the first time!

Comfort Food

There are many comfort foods I can think of right off the top of my head but nothing compares to a great leftover prime rib pot pie.

The flaky crust, gravy, vegetables and meat that goes into that pie is outstanding.

The best part about a homemade pot pie is you can make it the way you like it. You can put any vegetables you like in it.

One thing is planning what vegetables to put in it if there are no leftovers. My family won't eat certain vegetables. What's great about a pot pie is you can hide them!

This Recipe is Adaptable

The Family Hates peas in store-bought pot pies, and I always prefer to make my own they are so simple to do!

I have even tried to hide the peas in there but it's a no vegetable here.

My point is to make your pot pie creations the way your family will love it and use your imagination of leftover from the holiday to do yours.

I have even used sweet potatoes in my turkey pot pie and that was a big hit as well!

Vegetable Pot Pies

Vegetables can be used without meat if you are a vegetarian guy or gal!

That would be another pot pie I would make just for me since I don't like a lot of meat!

I actually love tomatoes, broccoli, carrots and mushrooms with a thickened vegetable soup stock.

Whenever I have a refrigerator full of leftover vegetables, I usually use them up in a pot pie.

After Holiday Meals

If you're a big fan of pot pie, you will never buy them again.

Homemade is over the top comfort food and nothing else store-bought will ever compare again.

Actually, even this semi-homemade version is 100 times better than the supermarket brands.

Even if you don't want to make everything from scratch go ahead and buy the pie crust.

You could also use canned or bottled gravy. I won't tell!

Change It Up!

I love any kind of pot pie so if you're not looking for a Prime Rib or Beef pot pie, substitute chicken, turkey or whatever you prefer.

You then just need to use the coordinating gravy and whatever vegetables you like.

I always use potatoes in mine but you can leave them out if you don't like potatoes and add more of what you love the most.

If you do happen to buy store-bought pie crust, make sure you baste the top with melted butter so you can that delicious buttery golden brown crispy crust. It also will seal it nicely.

Almost every pot pie I ever make has three things, mushrooms, carrots, and potatoes with the meat.

I like to stay away from the overpowering flavors.

Just A Guideline

Is this pot pie too big for just two people?

Try making individual ones in cupcake tins and freeze the ones leftover for later!

You can make a bunch of them and freeze them.

Of course, they freeze well raw or cooked all ready to bake for later meals.

Hopefully, I gave you lots of suggestions you can take advantage of by making one of these pot pies, whether it's semi-homemade or from scratch, you will love it!

Perfect In Cooler Weather

Winter and pot pies are the perfect combinations to even think about making them and using leftovers from the holiday just makes these so much easier to fix for the family.

Seriously drool-worthy, I can eat this every day in the cooler weather, it's the ultimate comfort food for sure!

Awesome to have your meal cooked all in one casserole dish!

Leftovers Can Be Gourmet!

The main thing is this meal repurposed is exactly tailored to your taste!

When I first made a pot pie, I was so excited to see how fantastic it came out, that bubbly sauce, the browned pastry crust and what was inside was exactly what I like the best more meatless vegetables.

We love our gravy with mushrooms and a little Marsala wine mixed into the gravy.

Our leftover prime rib was turned into a gourmet meal pot pie with a few simple ingredients!

  1. Mom's pie crust recipe:
  2. 2 cups flour
  3. 1/2 teaspoon salt mix together with flour
  4. 2/3 cups shortening cut into the flour then add
  5. 4 1/2 tablespoons ice water
  6. Mix till dough forms a ball...Roll out on floured board two 9 inch crust to line  a deep casserole dish or pie plate if using for pies.
  7. Brush bottom of crust with 1 tablespoon butter.

  14. instructions:
  15. Pour beef juices into a small saucepan and add an equal amount of flour to the juices. 
  16. Mix them together well. 
  17. Then turn on a very low heat and stir constantly so the gravy doesn't burn. You need to continue stirring and cooking this mixture until it turns brown and starts to bubble a little.
  18.  The flour needs to be cooked properly, otherwise, your gravy will taste raw.
  19. Remove the flour mixture from the heat and very slowly add the beef stock in small amounts. 
  20. I add everything to a food processor to make a smooth gravy, then put back on the lowest heat setting.
  21.  Don't leave your gravy unattended. 
  22. Continue stirring until it reaches the thickness you desire and then serve immediately or use for pot pie.
  23. Assembly:
  24. Line pie plate with rolled out the dough. 
  25. Place chunks of meat and mixed vegetables on top of the crust. 
  26. Pour gravy on top of meat and vegetable mixture. 
  27. Place another piece of rolled dough to fit over the top. 
  28. Brush with melted butter or heavy cream. granulated garlic, parsley if using. 
  29. Bake at 400 till brown and bubbly around 45 minutes to an hour.
