Gma's Turkey Pie

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Kritty

My grandma used to make this after every holiday with the leftover turkey and broth. It's a great way to use up the turkey when you are tired of sandwiches! This recipe can also be altered to your taste by adding veggies other than listed or more of the veggies you like and less of the ones you don't. It also freezes well, if using out of the freezer be sure to heat to boiling before adding biscuits and baking, otherwise the biscuits will stay soggy on the bottom.

The only big change I made was to thicken up the broth with a little bit of flour so the biscuits would float on top while cooking (I was afraid they would get all soggy) Sage amount is perfect. I used frozen veggies and fresh potatoes and carrots as well as low fat biscuits since that is all I had on hand. Great recipe, similar to what my "Gma" used to make!
