Turkey Pot Pie is a great recipe to help use some of that leftover Thanksgiving turkey. A very moist pot pie with lots of veggies and taste. My boys love when I make this and I love that it is a one dish meal. Perfect to serve with leftover Easy Pumpkin Pie. A great shortcut method is to use a store bought pie crust!
Turkey Pot Pie is a delicious comfort food that is perfect to make after Thanksgiving.
