Easy Pot Pie

I mentioned in my last posting that I was planning on making pot pie with my Thanksgiving turkey leftovers. I did. It was oh so good. And now my freezer is stocked with plenty of pot pie dinners to thaw and heat up in the next month. I had a few people ask me for the recipe so I thought I would post it here. With photos. If you get a chance to make it let me know how it turns out. Oh, you can always make the pot pie with any left over meat and gravy. So don't wait for the holiday dinner.
Step one. Gather all your leftovers. I wanted a more veggies in mine so I added a can of corn and peas. I also made some boiled potatoes because I didn't have any leftover from Thanksgiving dinner. (My Mom would put the leftover mashed potatoes in the bottom of the pan. It is a little messy when serving but just as yummy. She would also include the leftover sweet potatoes cubed.)
Step two. Layer potatoes in the bottom of your casserole dish. Add the chopped turkey on top.
This is a great way to use the dark meat as well as the white meat.
Step three. Add your fresh or leftover vegetables.
Step four. Heat up your gravy to pour on top. Make sure your gravy is nice and hot.
Step five. Make your biscuit dough for the top.
I use the easy biscuit mix from a box of Bisquick. Follow the recipe for biscuits or dumplings. (Bisquick mix and milk) Roll out the dough to the size of your casserole dish and about half an inch thick.

Step six. Carefully place the biscuit dough on top. Set your oven at 375 degrees and bake for 20 to 30 minutes. (If your dough is thick you may need to cook a little longer)

Your pot pie is done when the top is golden brown.

Cut, serve and enjoy. I like to keep my top to the side. And I added some leftover stuffing and cranberry sauce to my dinner. Very filling and very good. The perfect dinner for a chilly winter's night.

Love and stitches


and licks from Rory too.

PS. A photo filled update with stitchy pics and, of course Rory is coming up next.
