These Turkey pot pies are my go to recipe whenever I have leftover turkey. They are absolutely delicious and a bit different then the average pot pie recipe you will find, but so much better.

The main difference with my recipe and all the others is that I like to use my leftover “Turkey Gravy” instead of heavy cream in my pies. It does the same thing, keeps the pies moist yet adds that extra level of flavor.

Also I like to use a frozen vegetable mix, that contains green beans, peas and carrots to fill the pies. The more veggies the healthier right? Plus all three go so well together and make these pies AMAZING!

So if you too are wondering what to do with all that leftover turkey, then look no further because this recipe is not only simple to make it’s absolutely delicious!

Don’t want to make individual pies? No problem, simple place the pie filling inside a large pie baking dish and make a large one with the same recipe. Totally up to you 🙂

Now you can pre purchase the “puff pastry” which is that crust you see on the top of these pies” or you can make it from scratch yourself. Which I really encourage you to do, trust me it’s worth it and tastes so much better than the store bought kind.

This crust is also foolproof as well, I have tried many pastry puff recipes in the past and this one is the winner folks.

These pot pies can be ready in under 45 minutes. As long as you pre-make the puff pastry one hour in advance you can have this on the table in under one hour. If you would prefer to make one big large pie, you can do that with this recipe as well.

So instead of placing the ingredients into four smaller dishes place it into one large and cover with one crust. I hope you enjoy!

 

Notes: If you don’t have any leftover turkey gravy, feel free to use canned or cream in replace of.

Turkey Pot Pies

Yield: 4
These Turkey pot pies are my go to recipe whenever I have leftover turkey. They are absolutely delicious and a bit different then the average pot pie recipe you will find.

Ingredients

PUFF PASTRY

  • 2 1/2 cups Flour
  • 10 tbsp Butter
  • 8 tbsp Cold water
  • 1 tbsp Fresh Lemon Juice
  • Pinch of salt

FILLING

  • 1 pd Leftover Turkey
  • Frozen mixed vegetables, green beans, peas and carrots.
  • Onion
  • 1/2 cup Chicken Stock
  • 1/2 cup Turkey Gravy
  • 3 tbsp Flour
  • 3 tbsp Butter
  • Garlic
  • 1 tsp Fresh Rosemary
  • 1 tsp Dried thyme
  • 1 tsp Dry Oregano
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

EGG WASH

  • 1 large Egg

Instructions

  1. Start by making the puff pastry, to do this you will want to simply place 2 1/2 cups of flour into a large mixing bowl. Then you will want to take a grater and grate roughly 10 tbsp of frozen butter into the flour bowl, then in a small cup place 12 tbsp of "ice cold water" and stir in 1 tbsp of lemon juice to combine. 
  2. Slowly add in the water and stir the flour mixture with a spatula till all the water is in the bowl. Then with your hands, mix everything together. Your wanting a soft dough.
  3. Form the dough into a ball, then place on a lightly floured surface. Flatten the dough some and cover with saran wrap before placing in the fridge to chill, anywhere from 1 to 3 hours.
  4. Then make the pie filling, add the chopped leftover turkey, chopped onion and 1 more tbsp of butter into a large frying pan. Saute till the onion has become tender.
  5. Add in the minced garlic and saute another minute till fragrant.
  6. Add in the chicken stock and turkey gravy and simmer for 5 minutes. 
  7. Then add in 2 more tbsp of butter and sprinkle 3 tbsp of flour over top and mix into the turkey mixture till combined. Add in all the frozen vegetables along with all the seasonings and simmer another 10 minutes.
  8. Once the filling is ready, pour it into individually oil greased pie plates. Then remove the "chilled puff pastry" from the fridge and place it onto a floured surface. 
  9. Roll out with a flour dusted rolling pin till thin and flat. Place the pie plate overtop and cut one inch around each plate. This will be your pie top, you want enough that hangs over so make sure to not cut it right near the plate.
  10. Once the puff pastry has been cut, fill all the pies with the filling and top with the puff pastry.
  11. Season the pies with salt and pepper and then brush with an egg wash.
  12. Bake at 400 f or at 375 on a convection bake for 25 minutes or until browned. Enjoy!
