Leftover Turkey Pot Pie Recipe

Tuesday, December 1, 2015

I just love using all the leftovers from our Turkey dinner for a pot pie. Check it out how easy this is and everyone goes nuts over it. It is so darn easy! You can feed many with this oversized Pot Pie! Whether the Holiday has chicken, beef or turkey, this is the tastiest way to make those leftovers into another fabulous meal that everyone loves.

Comfort food is always defined as the stick to your ribs and fill me up food right? I laugh when I think of a heavy meal in the winter time that really hits the spot, they are always the best meals when it's a chilly day.

Mom would make lots of pots pies since it was a no waster household we grew up in and these were the best memories. I didn't always make them homemade until I figured out how darn easy they were!

Individual or For One Person!



The best thing about a pot pie is you can make an individual casserole style or make it for one person!


The best of both worlds.


If your family loves pie or it's just for you, try using anything leftover with this recipe, you won't be sorry.


This is the most delicious pot pie I ever had!

Best Fast Food!



One of our favorite frozen food we use to buy when I was in college was pot pies.


They were easy to throw in the toaster oven we had and a fast meal.


I always loved a double crusted pot pie and homemade sure beats those frozen ones!

Great use for Leftover Turkey!



What better way than to repurpose leftovers than in a delicious flaky pastry crust?


These delicious leftovers like Thanksgiving gravy, vegetables and of course a ton of turkey we always have left are the best in this pastry crust.

Make all your leftovers the best of the best meals all the time after a big Holiday meal.


Best comfort food around.

The Pie Itself



Although I use most of what's leftover, I usually take a few whole potatoes and stick them in the microwave until they are soft.


Then I cube them up.


We usually have mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving, they won't work in a pot pie and we love potatoes in ours!

Other Additions



I also love mushrooms, carrots, and peas.


My husband loves the mushrooms, broccoli, and corn.


Change it up to however you like it.


This is just a basic recipe and anything goes in it, venison, beef, chicken and even pork!!

Homemade or Store Bought?



Mom always used homemade pie crust, but in a pinch, you can just use store-bought.


Either the frozen two crust pastry dough or refrigerated rolls of dough you find in the supermarket work fine.


I usually make my own pies for Thanksgiving and make that extra batch of dough just to make pot pies after Thanksgiving.


You will find the homemade pie crust recipe here.


Turkey freezes well in packages, so if you have a lot of turkey left, freeze around 2 cups cubed in freezer bags ready to go for your pot pies all winter long!
