My son's favorite food is pot pie and "complains" he does not get enough of it. Couple that reason with my in-law's visiting and needing an impressive dish, I used my leftover turkey from Thanksgiving and made this BIG pot pie. This definitely was a "wow" dish. The crust is downright beautiful, with its many deep layers that resemble puff pastry. It cuts beautifully and best of all you can make it in advance. Don't let the long instructions deter you. I make a lot of pot-pies and it really didn't take too much longer and the amount it makes is worth it.I did do a few shortcuts and it made it simpler and not as daunting.
