These individual turkey pot pies are perfect for using up holiday leftovers!
Hey, guys, it's Deb stopping by from Bowl Me Over again to share another easy delicious recipe! Since we are just days away from Thanksgiving, I thought my timing would be perfect to share this recipe for Turkey Pot Pie from leftovers! We're all getting tired of turkey sandwiches by now, right?
I know we are!
I've made turkey soup with roasted vegetables and chicken pot pie soup, but I was looking for something new. Ang has a delicious recipe here on Juggling Act Mama that shares her Mom's recipe for Chicken Pot Pie, and her own Homemade Beef Pot Pie so I knew you'd love this recipe too! (Also, have you tried her Thanksgiving Sandwich? It's amazing!)
If you've been by my site, you know I keep things simple, and this recipe is no different! Simple everyday ingredients with some substitutes you can use along the way - love that!
- cooked turkey or chicken
- chicken or turkey stock
- salt, pepper, red pepper flakes
- pie crust
See I bet you have everything you need, right?
How do you make a crust for turkey pot pie?
I have a great homemade piecrust recipe on the blog (you can find the link here) but honestly, I usually purchase a good quality premade pie crust. They are delicious and it's a great shortcut!
What vegetables go in a pot pie?
I keep it simple with the basics - onions, carrots, and celery, but you can really use any combination of vegetables!
- frozen peas and carrots
- green beans (leftover green bean casserole is terrific!)
- cabbage or brussels sprouts
As a side dish, make some Oven Roasted Acorn Squash while the pot pies bake - it's so good!
How do you make a pot pie from scratch?
- Preheat the oven.
- Dice the turkey and vegetables.
- Heat the stock.
- Add the butter and olive oil. Next add the vegetables and seasoning. Sauté for 5 minutes.
- Sprinkle with flour. Cook the flour for about 3 minutes or so until it is golden brown, then whisk in the stock.
- Add in the cooked turkey and stir to combine.
- Divide the mixture between two oven-safe bowls.
- Top with a pie crust, cutting slits in the crust. Place on a sheet pan lined with foil.
- Bake until the crust is golden brown.
- cook on a baking sheet lined with foil - makes clean up a breeze!
- fill oven-safe bowls almost to the top
- cut slits in the pie crust to allow the steam to escape
- brushing the pie crust with a beaten egg will make it brown beautifully and glisten!
- Mom's Chicken Pot Pie - this is my mom's tried-and-true recipe that she's been making for more than 40 years!
- Homemade Beef Pot Pie - so savory and flavorful and great for leftover pot roast.
- Ham Pot Pie - this recipe is also really great for using up holiday leftovers.
- Mini Chicken Pot Pie - I love making these for my kiddos!
Can you freeze turkey pot pie?
Absolutely! Make the filling and assemble the pot pie. Wrap it well and tuck it in the freezer, it will last up to six months!
