Leftover Turkey Pot Pie

Use leftover roasted turkey to make a delicious pot pie
Servings 6


  • 1 Homemade Pie Crust See notes below
  • 2.5 cup Leftover Roasted Turkey
  • 1/4 cup Onion
  • 2 Large Carrots
  • 1/2 cup Frozen Peas or Green Beans
  • 1/4 cup Einkorn or All-purpose Flour
  • 2 tbsp (Real) Unsalted Butter
  • 1 cup Chicken Broth
  • 1 cup Half & Half
  • 1 tsp Pink Himalayan Salt
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • Fresh Thyme or Turkey Seasoning


  • Make crust or use a store bought one. I only put the crust on top but you can certainly have one on the bottom, add filling and then top it with another crust.
  • To make the filling: Add flour and butter to a pan. Once butter is melted, use a whisk to mix the two together. Do this kind of quickly. You are creating a roux. This mixture will allow your sauce to be thick and creamy.
  • Next, add chicken broth and half & half to pan.
  • Cut up all of your veggies (except the peas)and add those to the pan.
  • Add cut up leftover turkey (or chicken/beef)
  • Mix all of this together on the stove on medium heat. Allow carrots to cook until they are soften. Add seasonings (if needed) and the peas. Stir together.
  • Pour the filling into a pie pan or a 10 inch iron skillet.
  • Place rolled out crust on top of the filling. You can make it pretty or rustic (like I do lol). Place pie pan on a cookie sheet to avoid spills in your oven.
  • Bake at 350 for 25 minutes or until crust is golden. Let cool for 5-10 minutes. Serve with a salad or a hot slice of homemade bread. Enjoy!


To make a HOMEMADE PIE CRUST, you just need a few simple ingredients.
1 1/2 cups of Einkorn Flour (Einkorn flour is so much easier to digest and makes a really yummy crust.
1 tsp of Pink Himalayan Salt
1/ cup of cold water
1 stick of super cold butter
Stir flour, salt and water together. Add butter (chopped into tiny cubes) and while using a pastry blender, fold in the butter to the flour mixture. Form into a ball, saran wrap it and store in the fridge for at least an hour. Crusts can stay in the freezer for up to two weeks. When ready, sprinkle flour on a flat surface. Take a rolling pin and roll the crust into the shape of your pie pan.
