Turkey Pot Pie is the perfect way to use up your holiday leftover roast turkey. This Turkey Pot Pie recipe is loaded with turkey and vegetables baked in a creamy, rich and savory sauce and topped with a tasty, golden biscuit crust.
This easy to make Turkey Pot Pie is the solution to your leftover turkey dilemma! This easy turkey pot pie recipe is pure comfort food and the perfect meal to enjoy after holiday festivities.
My easy to make Turkey Pot Pie starts with a creamy and savory filling made from scratch (no cream of chicken soup used for this recipe). Don’t worry, the creamy base is so easy and quick to make that you will never reach for the canned soup again!
After making the sauce, all you have to do is add in the rest of the filling ingredients, mix the biscuit topping ingredients, top the pie and bake.
Turkey Pot Pie Ingredients
- For the Creamy Pot Pie Sauce: Butter, onions, celery, flour, chicken broth, chicken bouillon, poultry seasoning, thyme, heavy cream, ground black pepper.
- Turkey: Use leftover roasted turkey, any other leftover turkey breast meat.
- Veggies: You can use any vegetables leftover from your holiday dinner. Leftover potatoes, carrots, sweet potatoes, mushrooms all work well. Cut leftover veggies into bite size pieces before adding them to the potpie filling. If you don’t have any leftovers, simply use frozen veggies. Frozen peas and carrots are a good option but you can use any other veggie mix that you like.
- Biscuit Topping: To make this potpie recipe quicker and easier, I use store bought biscuit mix. You can also make your own homemade biscuit mix from scratch.
How To Make Turkey Pot Pie
- Make the decadent creamy sauce first. Saute onions and celery in butter.
- Stir in the flour and cook for a couple of minutes. You want to get rid of the raw flour taste/smell.
- Slowly stir in some of the stock. Whisking constantly, add the remaining stock.
- Simmer. The mixture will become smooth and creamy.
- Add the seasonings and cream and simmer just for a few additional minutes.
- Add the cubed turkey and vegetables and mix to combine.
- Pour the mixture into a 10-inch baking dish. If using a pie dish make sure is deep enough to hold the filling.
- Mix the biscuit mix with an egg and milk.
- Pour over the Turkey Pot Pie and bake.
This hearty pot pie is a meal on its own! Since this comfort food dish is very filling, we usually serve it with a light side salad. Although, most of the time we skip the salad and go just for this delicious and satisfying turkey casserole.
Yes! You can definitely use chicken instead of turkey. If you don’t have any leftover chicken, this Instant Pot Chicken Breasts would work perfectly for this recipe.
Turkey Potpie Variations
Although this easy turkey pie has a buttery and golden brown biscuit topping made with bisquick, here are some tasty variations that still produce an amazing dish.
- Top the creamy filling with buttermilk biscuits and then bake.
- Use pie crust. Flaky pie crust baked to golden brown is a classic ingredient in chicken pot pie. You can use a double crust, one to hold the delicious filling and one to top the savory pie.
- Mashed potatoes. If you have enough leftover mashed potatoes, spread them over the filling. Brush the mashed potato topping with a little garlic butter and bake! You can also make Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes and use them for this recipe.
- Use flaky puff pastry. Store-bought puff pastry is decadent and all you have to do is place it on top of the potpie and bake it.
Turkey Pot Pie Recipe Tips
- If using leftover vegetables, cut them into small bite size pieces.
- You can shred the leftover turkey or cut it into small cubes.
- Use a 9-inch deep pie dish to bake this tasty meat pie.
