This was good but plain. I followed the recipe except that I only used one cup of mixed veggies and hash browns. I followed the other ingredients as written. I cooked mine for 1 hour at 350.. I liked it but the rest of the family said that it was bland.
I had a lot of turkey left over from Kittencal's Perfect Roasted Whole Turkey (Great for Beginners), and was looking for a way to use some of it. I came across this recipe and decided to try it. The recipe didn't state whether or not to use shredded hash browns, so frozen cubed hash browns were used. Also, the recipe didn't state if regular or deep-dish pie shells were to be used, so I purchased deep-dish. And after reading the amount of ingredients, I'm glad I did. And speaking of the ingredients, from Step 1 to Step 6 the recipe was made just as it was written. When it came time to pour in the filling, a lot it poured over the edge of the pie dish. I had to remove about 1 cup of the mixture to be able to top it with the remaining crust. Then the recipe was completed as written. I let the pie " rest " for " about 10 to 15 minutes before cutting into it. I thought the taste was a bit on the " bland & dry " side,but my SO said it was very good. And him saying that is the reason I'm giving this recipe 4****'s. Thank you for taking time to post this recipe and, " Keep Smiling :) "
loved it!! i've always used canned soups in my pot pies because i was nervous to make the sauce myself...never again!! this was so easy & tasted sooooo good! i was using left over turkey, stuffing & mashed potatoes so i didnt use the onion or hash browns but i did saute a jalepeno in the butter which gave the sauce the kick i like. i will definately make this again!!
