Homemade turkey pot pie........mmmmmm.......mmmmmmm.......good!

I had some leftover turkey that I needed to use up so I decided to find a recipe for homemade turkey pot pie and make one today.  This recipe is soooooo delicious and all made from scratch so I wanted to share it now BEFORE Thanksgiving and leftover time!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 recipe pastry for a (10 inch) double crust pie
  • 4 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 1 tablespoons dried parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1cube chicken bouillon
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup of turkey drippings/broth/stock
  • 3 potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 1/2 cups cubed cooked turkey
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Roll out bottom pie crust, press into a 10 inch pie pan, and set aside.
  2. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add the onion, celery, carrots, parsley, and salt and pepper. Cook and stir until the vegetables are soft. Stir in the bouillon/broth and water. Bring mixture to a boil. Stir in the potatoes, and cook until tender but still firm.
  3. In a medium saucepan, melt the remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Stir in the turkey and flour. Add the milk, and heat through. Stir the turkey mixture into the vegetable mixture, and cook until thickened. Cool slightly, then pour mixture into the unbaked pie shell. Roll out the top crust, and place on top of filling. Flute edges, and make 4 slits in the top crust to let out steam.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F  and continue baking for 20 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.

I already posted at Dear Noah, but will again say, it looks yummy. For some reason the house feels colder to me today then it did yesterday.

Oh yummy. This is what happens to our turkey after thanksgiving too. We put him either on some nice buttery bread or into a pie crust. Thanks for posting this.
