Turkey pie

I mentioned before that my daughter hosted Thanksgiving this year. One of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving is the leftovers. I surely wasn't going to go to her house and ask for all of her leftover food, so Friday I cooked a Thanksgiving dinner for us! We had a 21 pounder and I sent some to my mother and saved enough for a couple of sandwiches and my favorite....turkey pie! I still have two 20+ pound turkeys in my freezer for a later date.

Here's my no fail turkey pie (or chicken pie) recipe.

In the crock pot add:

left over turkey cut into bite sized pieces
two to three potatoes cut into bite sized pieces
two carrots cut into pieces
left over stuffing. I use about 1/4 to 1/2 cup
left over gravy (Home made is the best!!! but jar will work)
season to taste

Cook on low for about 4 hours. The turkey will be so tender and yummy.

Pour into a pie shell and cover. I use Pillsbury and just unroll it.

I guarantee you will not be disappointed!

take care,

Turkey and chicke pie is a favorite around our house in the winter. It's a great way for us to use leftovers, and sometimes I cook chicken just to use it in the chicken pie--definitely a comfort food here!

Turkey pie looks delicious! I will have to be sure and try your recipe.

I found you from Diane's site, and I'm glad I did!

Thanks for sharing...

lol I cooked a turkey breast this past Saturday so that Johnny and I could enjoy turkey LEFTOVER sandwiches. That's the only bad part about DIL cooking the Thanksgiving meal.

When I cooked it, I'd always give them leftovers, and she offers. But I cannot take food from an active household when I KNOW that they will eat it. So, I do my own thing.

Well, I certainly wouldn't be disappointed if a dear, sweet friend made one and delivered it to me. ;-)

Dawn, that does look so good. I have left over ham. I think I will make soup.

You are in the drawing for today. Good luck.

There is a correction for the glue for the candy dishes. It is E-6ooo.
This is so easy to do.

That looks might tasty Dawn. When we fill the pie shell and cover, do we bake in the oven per pie crust directions?
