Yum, yum, yum! This pie came out great and an excellent way to use up leftover Thanksgiving turkey. Used mostly the dark meat and increased it by a bit considering that I placed it in deep pie dish. Also made it a double crust (top and bottom); blind baked the bottom crust, so that it wouldn’t come out soggy, it worked excellently. Made a homemade pie crust using DieniaB’s Buttermilk Pie crust, which is a top-notch recipe. Such a good pot pie. Thank you, ellie, for sharing. Made it for food tag games: “For your Consideration” and “Billboard Tag”.

I love pot pie, find it so comforting! This version was delicious. I didn't add mushrooms because one of my diners hates them, so I added more mixed veggies and some celery. I also added a little cream to my gravy. Delicious and unfortunately no leftovers.

Very yummy turkey pot pie! I used Mikekey's http://www.recipezazz.com/recipe/cranberry-and-pecan-roasted-brussels-sprouts-10635 for my cooked leftover vegetable and loved the addition. Also liked that there wasnt a bottom crust because I have had trouble with it getting a bit soggy when I made pot pies before. Easy to make, great flavors, and nice to use leftovers and not throw them away. Thank you ellie! Made and reviewed for the Pick Me! recipe tag game.
