Leftover Turkey Pot Pie

Dec 12, 2019 | Dinner

Most people have leftover turkey after Thanksgiving, Christmas, or whenever they cook a turkey. It usually doesn’t get consumed in one sit down. One way to use up those leftovers is by making them into pot pies. It’s really the perfect option because turkey meat tends to be dry. The prepared filling is so creamy and rich that it envelopes the turkey, producing succulent texture and flavor.

I use turkey stock to further enhance the turkey flavor, but chicken stock would work fine too. If you prefer a lighter version, you can replace the half-and-half with lowfat milk. As far as the mixed vegetables, feel free to use a frozen medley of your choice. 

Reheating is a breeze. Simply pop them into the oven at 300 degrees for 10 min. Enjoy!
