Use Turkey Leftovers for a Fast Pot Pie

Use Turkey Leftovers for a Fast Pot Pie

If you have turkey leftovers after your Thanksgiving feast, you may be wondering about some additional easy leftover recipes. Me too! I really don’t like just plain reheated turkey. Y’all know those turkey leftovers do not taste the same the next day! But, I don’t want to waste all those turkey leftovers. 

This year, I decided to make a turkey leftovers easy pot pie. This recipe was pretty fast to throw together, used up a lot of the leftovers I had, and was ready in about 30 minutes. It was warm, filling, and delicious. You likely already have the ingredients on hand, too! I had turkey and potatoes left from our meal. I always have frozen mixed veggies in my freezer. I also always have cream of chicken and cream of mushroom soup.

  • 1 package prepared refrigerated pie crusts
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (yes the box for pie crust will say 425, but ignore this).

  7. Fold in potatoes and frozen mixed vegetables.
  8. Lay one pie crust into about a 9" pie pan, pressing into the bottom. Trim to the edge of pie plate.
  9. Layer in the mixed filling.
  10. Roll the second pie crust across the top of the pie plate and punch extra crust on edges to create a scalloped edge.
  11. Cut six slits in the top of the crust for steam to vent.
  12. Bake in oven for 20 minutes.
  13. Pull the pie out and put edge guards or aluminum foil around the edges and place back in oven for 10 more minutes or until crust is golden brown.
  14. Allow to cool for 10 minutes after you take out of the oven, cut and serve.

I hope you all had an absolutely wonderful Thanksgiving. This turkey pot pie is so delicious and easy to make and it gives you another way to enjoy those leftovers without getting sick and tired of turkey too soon. Gobble gobble!
