Individual Turkey Pot Pies

Evening! I made these yummy pot pies out of our leftover Friendsgiving turkey. I used this recipe. It turned out perfect. (http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/anne-burrell/big-brined-herby-turkey.html)


My secret for perfect pot pies is to use real cream and mushrooms instead of cream of mushroom soup. I also use puff pastry, instead of pie crust. It is just so light and crispy, even better than pie dough.

Hopefully you will have a lot of leftover turkey, so you can make this recipe. If so, let me know how it turns out! I am also attempting some crock pot turkey soup, so I will let you know how that goes! Have a great holiday and time off with your family!

Ingredients

2 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 small container of sliced mushrooms
1 medium onion, chopped
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 cups chicken broth
4 cups cubed cooked turkey
1 package mix of frozen peas, corn, and carrots
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream, divided
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 package (15 ounces) refrigerated puff pastry
1 large egg

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a Dutch oven, saute potatoes, mushrooms, and onion in butter and oil until tender. Stir in flour until blended; gradually add broth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in turkey, frozen veggie mixture, 1/2 cup cream, garlic salt and pepper.

2. Spoon mixture in to 8 mini-ramekins. Roll and cut out pastry to fit top of each pie; place over filling. In a small bowl, whisk egg and remaining cream; brush over pastry.

3. Bake 40-45 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.
