turkey pot pie

  • Question:-Does anyone have a good turkey pot pie recipe?
    I need a good turkey pot pie recipe that can feed a lot of people. One that might fill a 9 by 13 pan or larger.

    Answer:-TURKEY POT PIE

    2 c. turkey, cooked
    1 can carrots, (with liquid)
    1 can peas, (with liquid)
    1 can corn (with liquid)
    1 can green beans
    1 lg. onion (diced)
    2 tbsp. Mrs. Dash's garlic and herb spices

    Add all ingredients in large pot with 1 1/2 cups water. Cook on low for 1 hour. Make crust out of Bisquick, butter, and water. Roll out then place in casserole dish bottom. Pour turkey and vegetables in; cover with top crust. Bake in 350 degree oven for 35 minutes, or until brown. Serve with salad. Makes 2 to 3 pot pies

  • Question:-Whats a good side dish to serve with turkey pot pie?
    I made mini turkey pot pies for dinner tonight and I dont know what to serve with them. I think it would pair nicely with a fresh salad but my husband and I are big salad eaters and well, I would just like to serve something different. My pot pie is super creamy and had peas carrots onions and corn. So I dont want anything heavy on the side and probably not those vegetables. Thanks!

    Answer:-Green beans.
  • Question:-What goes good with Turkey Pot Pie?
    I am making a Turkey Pot pie and was wondering what would look good and taste good to compliment the meal. (on the same plate) The pot pie consists of carrot, potato, turkey, turkey gravy and peas if that helps.

    Thanks alot!

    Answer:-It's kind of a complete meal with the crust, vegetables, meat and gravy. If I were fixing it for myself I would make myself a small romaine salad with tomatoes and scallions. Some people might think that too many vegetables. If I were serving others a side dish of fruit salad - melon chunks and grapes, is what I would serve. Or a light soup.
  • Question:-what is the best way to make a turkey pot pie crust with Jiffy baking mix?
    I normally wold use grands biscuts or something on top, but wanted to try making an actual biscut type crust on top. I have had homemade pot pie before and the whole casserole is topped with a like 1 1/2 inch crust. How exactly would I do this using Jiffy mix?

    Answer:-Just lay a layer of biscuit dough atop the pot pie filling and bake. Mix up the jiffy mix like the recipe says for biscuits, roll it out, then move it on top of the casserole dish. Or, if you like, you can cut out biscuits and lay them on top-- either way.
  • Question:-Can I put leftover stuffing in a turkey pot pie?
    I'm making a pot pie with yesterday's leftovers. It's my only questionable ingredient. I've never heard of it before, but why couldn't I? Is it going to taste awful? Does it matter if it's on the top or bottom?

    Answer:-Oh wow. I don't even like turkey unless it's sliced deli meat, but that sounds so good right now. I'm starving. Tell the hubby to hurry home and cut up the chicken for me. I really don't want to cut up raw chicken, the thought is grossing me out.

    What I'd do is put the stuffing on top instead of a crust.
  • Question:-After you have made a turkey pot pie, can you freeze it?
    I would like to make 2 pot pies and freeze one for the future. Thank you for your response.

    Freeze pies or tarts with unbaked pastry. Store unbaked pie tops or tart shells separated with paper or foil.

    Freezer or cling wrap. extra foil or polythene will hold shapes.

    Storage (mths)... 4-6

    Uncooked pastry will cook from the freezer.

    Good luck!...._;-)
  • Question:-Can you taste the difference between chicken pot pie and turkey pot pie?
    I can't :-(

    I am talking about those frozen pot pies form the grocery stores..

    Answer:-I know exactly what Skwerl is talking about. The crust is so delicious, especially if you buy the mini ones and save the crust from the bottom for last.

    However, I digress. In answer to your question, yes I can. I usually buy the Great Value ones from WalMart and I like the turkey ones better than the chicken.

  • Question:-How to make turkey pot pie?
    I have 5 lbs of turkey left over after thanksgiving. What to do with the left over?

    Answer:-Turkey Empanadas Grande

    "Pie pastry filled with a mixture of ground turkey, tomato, bell pepper, herbs and spices. A turkey twist on a Latin favorite, empanadas."

    1 pound ground turkey
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1 cup chopped onion
    1/2 cup chopped green bell peppers
    2 cups chopped fresh tomato
    1 tablespoon dried parsley
    1 teaspoon dried cilantro
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
    1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
    1 (15 ounce) package refrigerated pie crusts
    1 egg white, beaten

    In a large skillet over medium-high heat, saute turkey, garlic, onion, and green pepper until turkey is no longer pink in center. Stir in tomatoes, parsley, cilantro, cumin, oregano, red pepper flakes, and black pepper. Stirring occasionally, cook over medium heat about 15 minutes or until most the liquid is reduced.
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
    Spray cookie sheet with non-stick oil. Unfold one pie crust in center of cookie sheet. Carefully spread one half of meat mixture to within 1-inch of one-half pie crust. Brush 1 inch of pie crust with egg white. Encase meat by folding other half of pie crust over meat mixture. Using a fork, press edges of crust together and pierce top of crust to make holes to allow steam to escape.
    Repeat steps 4 and 5 with remaining ingredients and pie crust. Bake at 400 degrees F. 20 to 25 minutes. To serve, cut each empanada into 4 wedges.
  • Question:-If a recipe calls for cooked turkey (for turkey pot pie), how am I supposed to cook it?
    It says "3 cups chopped cooked turkey (about 1lb)".

    Am I just being stupid or what? Can I just buy a pound of turkey?
    Okay people. I KNOW about the left-over thing. But I want to eat this and I don't have leftover turkey! Is that not obvious?

    Answer:-boil it
    roast it
    microwave it

    or, buy a chunk of roasted turkey from the deli
  • Question:-Does anyone have a good chicken or turkey pot pie recipe?
    Preferably one with potatoes, carrots, peas and onions? I find all kinds of pot pie recipes but none usually have the potatoes. I know it's easy to add but I'm not sure of how to prepare the potatoes before putting them into the recipe. Also if it could be one that is just as good as home made but uses store bought ingredients. Thank you!!

    Answer:-Brown 1-2 pounds of chicken (or hamburger) and shred it. You can saute in some garlic, onion, etc. Don't salt anything because the added ingredients are plenty salty.

    Add a can of chicken stock, a dry chicken gravy packet, a one pound bag of frozen mixed vegetables, and a can of cream of potato soup.

    Stir it all up and taste, adjust seasonings as you see fit. Cook it down a little bit so it is still juicy but not running with liquid, otherwise your crusts will be soggy.

    Crusts in their pie pans, arrange it all on a cookie sheet to keep your oven clean. Dock your bottom crusts, poke holes in the bottom with a fork...I use a deep dish crust, or you can make the little tart crusts or whatever. Pour your filling into the crusts, they can pile up pretty high. Cover with identical crust, slits for steam...egg wash on the crust if you like, and bake at 400 or so, to brown the crust.

    You can make your own crusts and build these pies in a 9x13 if you like. Bigger pie...more ingredients...double the amounts.
