Turkey pot pie on a plate

This recipe is a lighter twist on the traditional turkey potpie with a fun twist. It’s loaded with vegetables and lean turkey breast. To make the sauce creamy, I skip the milk and mix broth with cornstarch instead. And if you’d rather make a chicken pot pie, you can use leftover chicken as well. You can easily cut this recipe in half or in quarters depending on how much turkey leftovers you have.

How do you make turkey pot pie from scratch?

Make the filling by frying the vegetables and then adding them to the bread. To make the filling, sauté the fresh vegetables and herbs. Add the frozen vegetables, turkey, and broth and cook for 10 minutes. Mix the remaining broth with cornstarch and add the turkey mixture, stirring until thick. Place the turkey filling in a 9 x 13 inch baking dish and cover with the filling. Bake for 30-45 minutes, until the crust is golden and the filling is hot and bubbly.

What Goes Well With Turkey Pot Pie?

When your bread is fresh, preheat the oven and bake the cubes of bread on 2 baking trays at 250 ° F for about 30 minutes, stirring halfway until the bread is completely set.

In a large, deep non-stick frying pan over medium heat, add the butter. After melting, add onions, celery, parsley, sage, Bell’s turkey seasoning, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper and sauté on medium heat for about 5-10 minutes until tender.

Remove from heat and let cool for a few minutes, then transfer to a large bowl and add the toasted bread. Mix egg and broth in a bowl and whisk, add to the filling and mix.

For the filling:

Preheat oven to 425F.

Wipe the pan and add oil over medium heat. Add the shallots, parsley, thyme, and sage and cook almost soft for about 2 to 3 minutes.

Add the celery and cook until the vegetables are tender, about 3 to 5 minutes.

Add the frozen mixed vegetables, turkey, 2 cups turkey stock, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and black pepper and bring to a boil. Stir and simmer over medium heat for 10 minutes until the flavors merge.

In the meantime, combine 1 1/4 cup turkey stock with the cornstarch and mix well to dissolve.

Add to turkey and cook over medium heat for about 4 to 6 minutes, stirring, until thickened. Remove from heat and place in an oven-safe 9 x 13 inch deep baking dish.

In a medium bowl, whisk the egg and 1 1/2 cups of stock. Place the filling over the turkey filling, add the egg and broth mixture and mix well. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes or until the crust is golden and the filling is hot and bubbly.
