A special thanks to Good Cook for the bakeware I received to create a delicious recipe for turkey pot pie.
I love pot pies.
I think they’re one of the best comfort foods on the planet, so you can imagine how excited I was to have the time carved out to make two turkey pot pies using leftover turkey meat.
Turkey Pot Pie
The first pot pie that came out of the oven was history in no time at all, so I decided to make a second turkey pot pie yesterday afternoon before David came down with a fever and had to be taken to the emergency room and subsequently admitted to the hospital a day earlier than expected. That’s for another post, though.
The good thing is that David is feeling better and my husband is going to be bringing me some of the leftover pot pie to eat as we continue our latest hospital stay. A little comfort away from home…
Achieving the Perfect Pot Pie Crust using a Good Cook Pie Pan
There are two things that you need to create the perfect crust for a pot pie. First, you need an awesome double pie crust recipe. I used the recipe that I posted here. Next, you need a fantastic 9-inch round pie pan. I used the one I received from Good Cook, and I was very impressed with how well it performed.
It’s important that both the top and bottom crust of a pot pie be just right — flaky, soft, and delicious. The Good Cook pie pan definitely got the job done, and I’ll be using it again and again, whenever I make a turkey or chicken pot pie.
Here’s the recipe for this Turkey Pot Pie:
I can’t think of a better way to use leftover Thanksgiving turkey than to create a simple pot pie that doesn’t take long to make and tastes great.
