Once a Year: Turkey Pot Pie

I don't need a reason to use frozen puff pastry.

When Pepperidge Farm sent me some sheets I knew exactly what I would do with them.

I would make a turkey pot pie the day after Thanksgiving with the leftover vegetables and turkey meat.



It is simple and DELICIOUS! Why do I only make this once a year?

I used the roasted vegetables from the day before and added some frozen pearl onions and frozen peas (they can defrost in the pot).



Add heavy cream and leftover gravy and whisk in some flour & a tablespoon of butter, salt and pepper, and don't forget the leftover turkey diced up.

Simmer for a minute or two then pour into a baking dish.



Roll out defrosted puff pastry sheet into a 12" round and fit over a pie plate or individual serving bowls to cover.



Make some holes in the top to vent & brush with an egg wash.

Bake at 400F for 25 minutes until top is puffed and golden brown.



......and with the rest of the turkey leftovers we had turkey sandwiches on the Ham & Gruyere biscuits with cranberry ginger relish!

Hi, Stacey - LOVE pot pie and roasted veggies. How yummy. When I make these I'm going to try and find a pot that is shallower with a wider top to have more crust - haha. YUM! Thank you. Lisa from Wilmington

Perfect way to use up those leftovers. I'm going to get some puff pastry today and follow your lead.

The roasted brussels sprouts look like an intriguing addition to pot pie. Nicely done.

How funny! I was looking at my Pepperidge Farm pastry sheets, thinking of making the exact recipe! But I got caught up in making soup.
This is exactly how it should be done. Love the photograph of the dripping pie. Everything looks perfect. With a salad, and a glass of nice vino-- yeah, that's the best way to use up turkey. Bravo.

Can't decide which looks better - the crust on the pot pie or those gruyere biscuits - yum!
