What to do with Thanksgiving leftovers...


This is so easy & incredibly yummy! I always have to come up with different ways to disguise Thanksgiving leftovers, because my husband doesn't like to eat the same thing meal after meal.

Easy Peasy Turkey Pot Pie

You can either make your own crust or take a shortcut & use ready made pie crust shell...like I did.
Cut up leftover turkey into bite sized pieces & put in the crust-lined pan. Add any leftover veggies....that green bean casserole works like a charm!
Pour gravy all over the top & for the upper crust, take a cookie cutter & cut out various shaped pieces to make it wicked pretty.
I used an oak leaf, a maple leaf, and a turkey.
Place them on top & be sure to overlap the edges & pinch together a little.


Cover with foil & Bake at 425 ...then remove foil & bake another 10-15 to brown up the crust.

Note that I did put foil underneath on the bottom rack to catch gravy drip overflow.

It was good & the hubby loved it!

That's beautiful!

I cover my Thanksgiving pies with cut out pieces of crust...but this year, I couldn't find my leaves! I had to use turkeys and stars.
