Easiest Turkey Pot-Pie

Our first recipe aimed at using up all that leftover Thanksgiving turkey is the Easiest Turkey Pot Pie. This pot-pie is very easy to make and results in a dinner the whole family will love.

note — If you don’t have frozen soup vegetables, regular mixed vegetables are fine as a substitution.


2 cups chopped cooked turkey

1 16-oz pkg frozen soup vegetables

1 12-oz jar turkey gravy

1/4 cup water

2 refrigerated pie crusts


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Combine turkey, vegetables, gravy and water in a mixing bowl. Set aside.

Place one of the pie crusts in a 9-inch pie pan.

Add the turkey mixture.

Place the remaining pie crust on top.

Seal the edges of the pie crusts.

Cut slits in the top pie crust to vent.

Bake in the oven for 1 hour, until crust is golden and filling is bubbly.
