Classic comfort food that you are going to want to try! This Turkey Pot Pie is so simple to make and the perfect recipe to use leftover turkey with.
Pot pie is such a classic and this Turkey Pot Pie is just like the classic chicken recipe.
It works perfectly to use any leftover turkey up. We always have a large turkey for Thanksgiving, specifically for leftovers, so this is one of the best recipes for turkey leftovers.
For this recipe, you can use a store-bought crust or make your own. If you plan on making your own check out my recipe for homemade pie crust.
How to make Turkey Pot Pie:
Turkey Pot Pie is exactly like Chicken pot pie just with a different meat used. Make your own pie crust using my recipe or buy one at the store. Dice up and cube your already cooked turkey, and mix all your ingredients in a pot. Once cooked put it in your pie and bake.
- Pie Crust
Pot Pie Filling:
- Unsalted Butter
- Onions (diced)
- All-Purpose Flour
- Salt and Pepper
- Chicken Broth
- Turkey - cooked and diced. Leftovers work great!
- Frozen Mixed Vegetables - I used carrots, peas, corn, and green beans)
- Dried Thyme
Step One: Get started by preheating your oven to 425 degrees. Then prepare the pie crust and set aside.
- Tip: Save time with a store bought crust or try this simple homemade crust recipe.
Step Two: Next prepare your filling. In a saucepan over medium heat melt butter then add your diced onions and sauté for 2-3 minutes.
Step Three: Then add in flour, salt, and pepper. Slowly pour in broth and milk stirring constantly until bubbly and your sauce has thickened.
Step Four: Add cooked turkey and the mixed vegetables then stir until well combined.
Step Five: Next season with thyme and mix. This is a great time to taste the filling and season more to taste.
Step Six: Now line a pie pan with ½ of rolled out crust. Fill crust with pot pie filling.
Step Seven: Roll out the 2nd half of your crust and place it on top. Make several slits in the top of the crust.
Step Eight: The last step is to bake for 35-35 minutes until the crust is golden brown.
- Tip: To ensure your crust edges do not burn 15 minutes before your pot pie is finished place foil around the outside.
Can you freeze a Pot Pie?
I do not recommend freezing a pot pie. The dough becomes very soggy when thawing, and it does not do well once thawed. I recommend only refrigerating for about five days.
