How was your Thanksgiving? We hosted this year and had a great time. We kept it pretty informal and just focused on the food. We used paper plates, which I am a little embarrassed about, but I wasn't sure if we would have enough "real" plates and I didn't want to bother with doing dishes. I try to conserve energy when I can nowadays since energy is on short supply for me lately.
One of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving is the leftover Turkey. There are so many things you can do with it and this is one of my family's favorites: Turkey Pot Pie. I am pretty sure that my bachelor brother makes a turkey by himself every year just so that he can make this pot pie. In keeping with the energy conservation theme, this version is super easy.
Easy Turkey Pot Pie
I never measure anything with this pot pie, so these amounts are approximated. Feel free to adjust them to your liking.
1-2 cups Leftover Cooked Turkey, cut into bite-sized pieces
3-4 cups vegetables- I usually use peas and carrots, you can use fresh or frozen
3-4 potatoes, skinned and cubed (or use frozen hash-browns, the cubed kind not the shredded)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup of milk
salt and pepper to taste
1 roll of crescent rolls, the Pillsbury kind works best as the store brands don't seem to work as well.
Pre-cook all the veggies and potatoes in water on stove until fork tender. Drain. If using frozen veggies/potatoes, just cook until warm and no longer frozen. Mix veggies, potatoes, turkey, cream of chicken soup, milk, and salt and pepper. If sauce is too then, add more milk. Spread in 9x13 pan. Take crescent rolls and roll out into a solid sheet the size of the pan. I like to buy the "recipe creations" kind of crescent rolls because it comes in a solid sheet already and I just have to roll it out a little bit. Spread crescent rolls on top of filling to act as top crust. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30-40 minutes or until top crust is light brown and filling is hot and bubbly. Let cool a few minutes and serve.
There you have it. Super easy and so good. My kids love this, my husband loves this and I love this in my pregnant, everything tastes gross and makes me want to puke state. Try it, you won't regret it.
