After Thanksgiving we had quite a bit of turkey left over, so I thought I'd try my hand at making a turkey pot pie. I've never made one before, have you? I scoured the internet, pulled up a couple of recipes and adapted them for my own recipe. This is what I came up with.
1 stick unsalted butter
3 cups chopped, cooked turkey
1/2 cup all purpose flour
3 cups turkey broth - I just boiled the legs and wings for an hour to make a broth
1 cup half and half
24 oz. frozen peas and carrots
1 small onion, chopped
2 large boiled potatoes, chopped into pieces
salt and pepper, to taste
1 refrigerated pastry crust - top and bottom pieces
Melt butter in a pot. Saute the onions, peas and carrots briefly in the butter and then stir in the flour and cook for two minutes.
Slowly add the broth and half and half
Add turkey and potatoes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Spray a casserole dish with Pam and lay out the bottom crust, pulling it up the sides of the dish. I did not pre-bake the crust.
Pour your turkey mixture into the dish and cover with top pastry. Crimp around the edges and make
several vents for steam to escape.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 - 35 minutes, or until pastry is cooked and golden.
