Turkey Pot Pie

What to do with those turkey leftovers? I made a delicious Turkey Pot Pie. The recipe is adapted from an old Bisquick Cookbook recipe.

Turkey Pot Pie

Double pie crust

Turkey Filling:
1 large onion, chopped
6 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 cups chicken broth (or 2 cans)
1 1/2 cup half & half or evaporated milk
3-4 cups chopped cooked turkey
3 peeled and diced potatoes
1 can peas
1 can corn
1-2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

Egg Wash:
1 egg
1 tablespoon water

Cook and stir onion in butter in dutch oven until tender. Blend in flour, salt and pepper. Cook over low heat until mixture is bubbly. Stir in chicken broth and milk. Then add chopped turkey and diced potatoes. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Simmer over low heat while preparing the double pie crust (or about 20-30 minutes.) After crust is made, add the corn, peas and Worcestershire sauce.

Place the bottom crust in the pie pan. Pour hot turkey filling in crust. Place top crust over and crimp edges with a fork. Cut a slit in top crust for steam.

Beat the egg and water, then brush over top crust. Bake in 400 degree oven until crust is brown and filling is bubbly, about 1 hour.

Just add what veggies you like or have on hand. Another crust option is a biscuit topping instead of the pie crust. In that case, make the biscuits and place on hot filling, then bake in a 425 degree oven until biscuits are done.

This is what we had for dessert...an apple pie! What else. My husband reminded in the grocery store today, that it is apple season. I took the hint.

Actually, this was just a sneaky way to get a picture of my new Staub Pumpkin Cocotte in the post! The pot was used for the turkey filling, so I guess it is fair game.

    I lost track of your blog for awhile; guess you were gone, too. Really enjoy it! Beautiful food, photos...

    @Kay, glad you found me again! I don't post as much here in my new home simply because the lighting sucks! Nothing like my home in Illinois. The first picture in this post was natural light, but the last 2 were not. I can really tell the difference.

    Guess I shouldn't let that stop me from posting though!

    Love your site. I found blog U and was wondering what the code is to get your sidebar titles to overlay. That's the neatest thing I've seen for a while. Please email be back at mullinsamber@hotmail.com and visit my site at www.mullinsamber.blogspot.com. Thanks for all your tips to dress up a blog.

    @mullinsamber, you can look at Double Vision Sidebar Titles

    Annie, I wasn't able to leave a comment on your shrimp post so I'll leave it here.
    YUM! I'm afraid I would be the sloppy winner if I had this in front of me ;)
    Love and appreciate your other blog, Blog U. Thank you.

    @maryann, how strange that the spicy shrimp post can't take comments. I'll have to look into it.

    Glad you like BlogU!

    @maryann, I fixed it. It seems that somehow the 'allow comments' got checked.

    Things that make you wonder how it happens. That is one.
