Thanksgiving always leaves me with extra dark meat that most of my family doesn’t eat just straight out…. therefore this has become a leftover Thanksgiving Turkey meal that we all enjoy! I can’t remember who gave this recipe to me… I know I got it from someone from when I lived in Texas about 14 years ago. It’s SO good though, the crust is simple and doesn’t make a mess at all! AND a bonus… it only takes 25 minutes to bake
|Leftover Turkey Pot Pie|
|Chop veggies, cover with water, simmer until soft|
|Combine diced turkey, cheese,|
|Cream of chicken, and sour cream|
|Add peas, salt, and pepper|
|Drain veggies, add turkey mixture, stir|
|Spoon into a 10×13 casserole dish|
AND now for the easy crust!
|Combine flour and salt thoroughly|
|Drizzle and mix thoroughly|
|Add water a tablespoon at a time|
|Gather into a ball on a sheet of wax paper|
|Lay another sheet of wax paper on top|
|Roll out into to a rectangle-ish shape|
|Remove top wax paper|
|Turn over crust onto pot pie and trim off excess|
|Cut slits into top|
|Bake 425 degrees for 20-25 minutes|
I always look forward to Thanksgiving dinner but I look forward to the leftovers just as much! Since my husband baked two 20 pound turkeys this year (one in the dutch oven and one in the Big Green Egg!!) I have lots of leftovers to use up… which is just fine!
