Leftover Pot Pie

The perfect way to use up all the leftovers from Holiday Feasts. You can substitute any meat for the turkey. I have used beef as well, and it makes a wonderfully tasty dish that doesn't remind you that this is the 4th time you have eaten Christmas dinner. Turkey stock can be used in place of turkey gravy.

Leftover Pot Pie Ingredients

The following are the ingredients needed to make delicious Leftover Pot Pie for 6 servings:

The following are the steps to cook Leftover Pot Pie easily:

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. 2 If you are using stock, bring the stock to a boil. Add cornstarch to cold water, and blend until smooth; whisk into stock to thicken.
  3. 3 Line a 9 inch pie plate with pastry. Mix turkey and vegetables together, and place in pie crust. Pour gravy or thickened stock over turkey and vegetables. Cover with remaining pie crust. Cut slits in the top to release steam.
  4. 4 Place pot pie on a cookie sheet to prevent stock from over flowing into your oven. Cook in center of oven until crust is golden brown, approximately 1 hour. Slice, and serve hot.

    Made this the day after Thanksgiving. Great use of the extra pie crusts I had. Next time, I would have 1 1/2 cups of gravy instead of 2 cups, a little "saucy" for my taste, but overall, gr ...

    I've made this several times - varying types of veggies each time. The package of frozen stew vegetables made up the best. Thanks Elizabet!

    Excellent! Very good use for leftovers. It came out a little soupy, but I guess that's because I used frozen veggies. We just soaked it up with bread, and the sauce did thicken a lot while c ...
