Leftover Roasted Turkey and Mushrooms Pot Pie
Turkey is national favorite on thanksgiving. Moments after-thanksgiving, there comes the dilemma of leftovers and turkey shine there too. After all, turkey is the star of thanksgiving dinner and that is what left in large quantity.

Even though, I freeze a lot of batches of turkey to devour for months after-thanksgiving, but turkey pot pies are most awaited on following Sundays. I bring sauteed mushrooms to the party for some earthy flavors. Smoky roasted turkey with mushrooms and cream gravy goes excellent together, all-in-all great leftover makeover.

Enjoy comforting one-pot winter meal and happy thanksgiving once again.

  1. Ah, okay got it! Read it too fast and missed that. I just made this but used a large muffin for mini pies. They smell amazing! Thanks!

    :) Mini pies sounds fun! I'm glad you trying this recipe. Enjoy! ~Savita
  2. Two things- so, add the cream the stock, right? I didn't see that in the instructions but it is in the ingredients. Second, any idea what the internal temp should reach?

    Hi Starla, I add cream in step 4 when mixing in peas and mushrooms to filling. For temp, since everything is cooked, I only judge the doneness by golden brown crust. I have never measured internal temp for this one. I hope it helps.
