So we came, we ate and we have Thanksgiving left overs so now what? Homemade Thanksgiving pot pies is what!
I use my normal pie crust recipe for this and just cut out the cinnamon. when you roll out the dough and cut for the tin, remember to cut it a little bigger. I lay the tin upside down on the dough and cut around with a butter knife. Lay the round pie dough in the tin and push down with your knuckle and trim the edges with a butter knife. Here is the fun part! Dice up your left over turkey, grab your peas, corn from the feast and even whats left of the mashed potatoes. Dump everything but the potatoes into a pot or bowl. Pour in your left over gravy and then stir it all up. I added some extra rosemary to the mix. Now grab your dough lined tin, plop in some mashed potatoes here and there, about 2 T. should do the trick and then ladle in your turkey veggie & gravy mixture. You want it a little less than the rim, not overflowing.
Once you have all the yumminess inside, next you lay a top layer of rolled out dough. Measure the same way at the bottom was done but you can cut this without the extra edge. Lay it on top of your pot pie and take a fork to press the edges in place..Done!
Store in a freezer bag for up to 1 year. Heating in a 400f for 40 minutes. Don’t forget to poke the top with a fork once or twice before baking. This will keep the top crust from turning into a bubble 😉 Enjoy!
