Filling for the turkey pot pie
It is highly possible that you will not need to go shopping to get ingredients for this recipe. Especially, if you have frozen puff pastry and leftover turkey. All you have to add are some veggies and greens. I used fresh carrot, which I chopped, as well as a can of vegetable mix. Half of this mix were corn, 29 % green beans and 10 % of paprika. Frozen peas are also great to use for the filling. Just add salt and pepper to your taste.
You can regulate the quantities, according of what you have in your pantry. Moreover I love using mushrooms in my savory dishes, so this turkey pot pie was no exception. I also added 1 chili to make it more like spicy pie.

How to make turkey pot pie
All the vegetables and leftover turkey chunks are cooked in a pan with milk and flour, to make the mixture thick and let the mushrooms cook through. You can also add chopped onion instead of chives. This is delicious mixture, which can be served for dinner, but will be much better, when transferred in the pie crust.
I used defrosted butter yeast puff pastry. I layered half of pastry sheets in 20 cm / 8 inch round baking pan (or use a pie plate). Then I put veg & turkey mixture (leaving few tablespoons to eat from the pan, it was irresistible) in the baking pan. Topped with left puff pastry, be sure to pinch the sides of the dough. Also I stabbed the bottom and the top of the pastry with a fork and left few slits with a knife on top to let the steam get away. Also I used egg wash to make it more appealing and brown on top!
Then you need about 20-30 minutes to wait for the delicious turkey pot pie to be ready. Regulate cooking time, so your pie will be golden brown. I recommend leaving it for 20 minutes after baking to cool. So it will be easier to cut the pie and you will not burn yourself.
What can be more tempting than warm turkey pie with creamy spicy filling and soft crust! This is a great meal that will satisfy your hunger. It is a perfect snack or lunch. I recommend serving it warm. Moreover, it is easy to cut and serve this turkey pot pie!
