The best part of cooking a turkey at my house is usually on the third day, when we make a pot pie. On Sunday, the bird was cooked and today, Tuesday, we had a delicious pie for supper.
It’s very easy to make. Start with a nice layer of chopped turkey in a casserole dish. Top it with vegetables, whatever you have. If they’re firm, you may want to par cook them first. Today we had carrots, onions, red and yellow peppers and snow peas. White or sweet potatoes or squash, peas, corn or beans, these all make for a delicious pot pie. Warm up left over gravy and pour a few scoops over the turkey and vegetables. Add some extra seasoning (like rosemary or tarragon) and top this off with some biscuit dough. I add an extra tsp or two of sugar to the dough.
Bake in a 400 degree oven with foil covering the casserole for approximately 20 minutes and then another 15 minutes or so without the foil until the biscuits are nicely browned and the gravy is bubbling.
Today the weather was bleak, cloudy and snowy. But inside our house, it smells of delicious pot pie!
