"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."

"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."
"Thanks for helping me get rid of the rest of my turkey with this delicious recipe!"
"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!"
"For a recipe that uses leftovers I think this definitely deserves 5 stars. Decided to make this after I read the reviews. My leftover turkey was from a turkey breast, not the whole bird so I didn't have 2 cups of leftover gravy. Substituted cream of chicken soup. It was delicious. Sure will make this one again."
"What a fabulous way to use up those left-overs! I used the left-over corn, carrots, stuffing, gravy and turkey from my Easter dinner, and you know what? I even threw in the last of the cranberry sauce! Seeing as this was a "using up the left-overs" kind of dinner, I also tossed in about a cup of brown rice that was left from lunch. It was a terrific dish, that even my 6 year old enjoyed!! Thanks for a great recipe Karen! PS: I skipped the pie crust on the bottom, just sprayed my pan with non-stick spray."
"My family loved this. I had two plates!! It did not taste the same as regular leftovers. Even the child who does not like gravy loved this. I did forget and put the gravy (I used extra gravy also) on last after the stuffing though. I used leftover carrots, corn, sweet potatoes and a can of green beans. The sweet potatoes made it great. I don't think it would have been as good without them. A keeper!"
"I loved this recipe! It was easy to make and I was able to use all my Thanksgiving leftovers. I spread out some leftover mashed potatoes instead of the pie crust. I also would recommend leaving out the salt because it seemed little to salty since most of the ingredients already had some salt."
"Wow, Thanksgiving all over again! I did not have gravy, but made a simple white sauce (flour/butter/milk), and it was fantastic. I opted out of the optional crust, but certainly would try that. I liked the mashed potato base idea tried by another rater too!"
"Very nice turkey pot pie. Great to use with your leftovers. Will be using this recipe a lot. Thanks for posting."
"Good way to get rid of leftovers, I was in a hurry and didn't cook my pie crust long enough alone before putting the rest of the ingrediants in and it never cooked, even thought I left it in the oven for about 45-50 minutes..so a litlte advice, make sure to pre-cook the pie crust like it says to do."
"This was very easy to make and used up all those leftovers. I didn't have any leftover stuffing so I used stovetop. It was still good but I think it would have been better with homemade stuffing. Thanks for posting"
"We loved it. I used thyme instead of sage, and placed a thin layer of leftover mashed potatoes on the bottom. It is an easy, tasty recipe."
"Wow! This was great! An excellent way to use up holiday leftovers with a great taste. I liked that it resulted in a dish that did not taste like I was just trying to cover up leftovers -this has great flavor. For my veggies, I used leftover corn,sweet potatoes, and some diced green chilies."
"This was very tasty. I used peas instead of mixed vegetables and leftover BBQ chicken instead of turkey. Added some small pieces of cooked potatoes on the bottom before adding the chicken and peas. I made it up in the morning, refrigerated it and brought it out and cooked for 45 minutes."
"I've made something similar to this for years. I cover the pie crust with egg on the bottom and bake it only long enough to seal the egg. Then add a layer of mashed potates, followed by meat and gravy with the stuffing on top to get nice and crispy. Sometimes I put some cranberry sauce in the ridges of the crust around the edges for "dessert" at the end.<br/><br/>Curtis Stotlar"
"Great recipe to follow a turkey dinner. Changed it up abit by adjusting some of the ingredient quanities, for example I increased the turkey & reduced the stuffing & vegys abit. I didn't have enough gravy so I mixed in 1/2 can of chicken soup into the turkey mixture to account for the lack of gravy moisture. Tasty & easy recipe, thanks for sharing."
"Yummy! Had frozen left over Thanksgiving turkey and stuffing in separate bags. Just defrosted and Google searched recipes with left over turkey and stuffing. This was wonderful! would definitely make this again year after year. Thank you.. :)
Used twice as much gravy and twice as much stuffing. Came out great!"
"This was great. Made this last week with some of out left overs we had frozen. Great flavor. I did however end up adding about 1/2 cup of additional gravy. Also this was entirely my mistake, but the vegetables we used was not a big hit. The package had quite the variety. I think if there were only a few different veggies it wouldn't have been an issue. Will be keeping this recipe for those times I want to clean out our freezer"
"Great recipe! Decreased the Garlic power by 1/2. This is a keeper!"
