Turkey Pot Pie

turkey pot pie

Earlier this week, I posted a Thanksgiving-leftovers-transformation recipe, and now I have another. Last year, after the Thanksgiving meal at my parents’, I tossed the Turkey carcass and some veggies in a pot to make stock. That stock ended up in pot pies I made from our leftovers.

garnished with salt & pepper mmm, pie crust

In my family, we tend to prefer the white meat, but the dark meat is wonderful recooked in another meal. Because of its slightly higher fat content, it’s more difficult to dry it out when reheating. The result is bites of succulent turkey with vegetables, gravy, and pastry. Do leftovers get any better than that?

Lisa,

I’m so sorry to report that my sister, Sara, passed away on 02/18/2013 of brain cancer. She would have been so happy to know that you were following her food blog. This was a huge passion of her’s and I have no doubt that she would have gone on to great things in the food world has she not encountered this terrible form of cancer. Reading your posts has reminded me of how special a person she was. I get a lot of joy going out hear and seeing that people are still looking at her recipes.
