So the Christmas meal is over. The presents have all been unwrapped. The libations have been drunk. However you probably still have a few pounds of leftovers in the fridge.
Pot pies are a wonderful way to use up Christmas leftovers. Deliciously easy to make and simple to assemble. They taste terrific too!
Turkey Pot Pie with Biscuit Crust
2-3 cups chopped cooked turkey
2-3 cups leftover veggies chopped (seriously whatever you have throw it in)
2 cups turkey or chicken stock
1 red pepper chopped
1 onion chopped
1 cup frozen peas
3 tbsp corn starch
2 tbsp butter
1 tsp ground sage
1 tsp ground savory
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
2 cups Bisquick
1 cup milk
Heat oven to 400F
I used my 3 1/2 Quart Le Creuset Braiser for this. One pot cooking and baking is ideal for fuss free clean up. You can also pour this into a casserole dish as well.
Saute red pepper and onion in butter until soft. Add in savory, sage, salt and pepper. Add turkey, chopped vegetables, frozen peas and 1 1/2stock. Mix thoroughly and bring to a simmer. Mix cornstarch with remaining 1/2 cup stock (use a small whisk) to create a lump free slurry. Mix slurry into turkey mixture and simmer until thickened. Set aside to cool slightly.
In a medium size bowl mix Bisquick, eggs and milk. Spread Bisquick on top of turkey mixture.
Bake for 25-35 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes prior to serving. My whole family loves this dish and I end up with a fridge free of leftovers. Win Win situation!
