This is my favorite pot pie to use up those holiday leftovers. I tend to make more stuffing and gravy then I need for the meal so that I can use up the leftover turkey in this way. I love the crispy stuffing crust on the top. The gravy keeps the potpie from being dry.
- 2 cups diced leftover cooked turkey
- 2 cups leftover turkey gravy
- 2 (16 ounce) bags frozen mixed vegetables (canned or already cooked works well too)
- 2 cups leftover prepared stuffing (more if desired)
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon ground sage
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon salt
- pie crust (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees (176 celsius).
- Cook vegetable mix according to package instructions; drain well.
- Mix together turkey, vegetables, garlic powder, sage, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
- If using a bottom pie crust, line a 9 x 13 rectangular cake pan with crust; prick all over and pre-bake until light brown.
- Spoon vegetable and turkey mixture into the 9 x 13 rectangular cake pan.
- Pour gravy over the vegetable/turkey mixture.
- Top with stuffing, spreading evenly over all.
- Bake for 30 minutes or until hot and the stuffing crust is brown and crispy.
This was really well liked. I was asked to make it again, but didn't have enough gravy for a second one. I did omit the sage and garlic powder since the stuffing was already well seasoned. The turkey was very moist and overall everything had a very good flavor.
This was really good substituting the frozen mixed vegetables with leftover green bean casserole. I didn't use as much gravy as the recipe calls for because of the creamy green bean casserole sauce.
I changed it up a bit, so I didn't give it 5 stars, although it was a hit with my house! I used mashed potatoes as the base of a 3 quart casserole dish, for the filling, I used 3 cups turkey, 1 can sweet peas, one can kernel corn, 2 lumps of mashed sweet potatoes and a little over 2 cups of gravy. I drizzled the extra gravy I had over the stuffing. Awesome!
