Do you have leftover turkey after a beautiful celebration? Make a Turkey Pot Pie!
When I carve the turkey, I usually remove the most of the meat from the bones, and leave a little bit on, to save them for making a flavorful stock in the future. The leftover meat is reserved & frozen until I want to make a pot pie.
So, yesterday, we were a bit busy & busy…too busy to start cooking…The solution? Pot pie! Out came the reserved turkey meat & pie crust.
