This turkey pot pie is a comforting no-fuss dinner recipe using leftover Thanksgiving turkey and other simple ingredients.
We always look forward to leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. Ben enjoys a simple cold turkey sandwich with mayo, lettuce and a sprinkling of salt and pepper. I like to chop up some of that turkey and bake it in an easy refrigerated pie crust with veggies and turkey gravy for a comforting turkey pot pie. It's an easy dinner recipe that I know my family will devour.
📋 Grocery List
The best part of this recipe, besides it's creamy delicious comfort indwelling flavor, is that you can change it up to whatever ingredients you might have on hand. If you have other Thanksgiving leftovers like carrots, green beans, potatoes and stuffing, you can use all of those in this pot pie. Even though the recipe is written to assume you do not have these other leftovers, feel free to change it up!
Gather these ingredients:
- Refrigerated pie crust (box of 2 crusts)
- Turkey leftovers (2 cups chopped)
- Frozen mixed veggies like peas, corn, carrots (2 cups)
- Turkey gravy (2 cups)
- Diced frozen potatoes (1 ½ cups)
- Egg + water (for egg wash)
Again, feel free to mix up the ingredients to what you might already have on hand or to other vegetables you like better. Don't like peas? Leave them out! Want green beans? Toss them in! Have leftover potatoes? Chop them up and use them instead of frozen ones. The sky is the limit here. We've even added in leftover stuffing.
