Use up leftover turkey with this turkey pot pie recipe

Print this recipe
Turkey pot pie is a fantastic way to use up leftover turkey. If you use store-bought puff pastry, it means that this recipe comes together in less than an hour. Of course, that doesn't mean that it's lacking in flavor.
For this dish, you'll make a lightly seasoned flour-thickened sauce that will serve as the base of the pie. Add to that some frozen veggies and previously-cooked turkey and – believe it or not – dinner will be on the table. If you don't have leftover turkey, you can easily use leftover chicken or cook ground turkey to add to the pie.
