I don’t know about you, but I think leftovers make some of the very best meals. Not only does leftover turkey taste amazing smothered in cream sauce all nestled up against veggies and potatoes, but it ensures that you’ve made the best of your bird with little waste.
Groceries are expensive and we all work hard to feed our families well, which is another reason I’m a fan of leftovers. They’re great for repurposing into inexpensive meals. Turkey Pot Pie with Puff Pastry is a great way to use up extra vegetables in your fridge, along with the leftover turkey. Feel free to substitute the puff pastry for pie crust dough too. They’re both great options, I just happen to choose puff pastry for this post.
I’ve made this Turkey Pot Pie with Puff Pastry as a one-pan family-style meal. It bakes up golden with bubbling hot goodness beneath. It smells amazing and is homey and comforting. As a child, I ate frozen pot pies, usually when my dad was away to give my mom a break from cooking. While they’re no comparison to homemade, they emanated what I love about a pot pie and I secretly enjoyed them. I didn’t know any better and I had nothing to compare the frozen version to, so for me, it was comfort food heaven in a little foil dish. Nowadays I opt to make homemade and I hope your family enjoys it as much as I do, but whatever your homey, comfort food is, enjoy it!
