Leftover Turkey Pot Pie

The main question we get this time of the year is “What do we do with the Thanksgiving leftovers?”

Thanksgiving is one of the most highly anticipated meals of the year.  But now that all the people are gone and the leftovers are taking up room in the fridge, we need to use that food before it goes bad.  We can transform those leftovers into many things, sandwiches and soups are the most popular, but this recipe will use not only the turkey but many of the leftover vegetables too!  This turkey pot pie recipe may just become your family’s early December tradition.

  • 2 Cup turkey, shredded
  • 2 Tbsp parsley, chopped
  • ½ Cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 1 prepared pie crust
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
