In my house the day after Thanksgiving is officially called “Leftovers Pot Pie Day”.  Every year I just take whatever is left from our Thanksgiving dinner and bake it into a yummy personal pot pie. The ingredients aren’t always the same, but somehow they always turn out great and my kids look forward to digging into one.

Here is what I am using this year :

  • leftover turkey
  • leftover string bean casserole
  • leftover potato gratin
  • leftover brussels sprouts
  • 4 cups milk
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 2 packages of pie crust
  • 1 egg
  • salt & pepper

Here is what you need to do :

Chop up your leftovers into bite size pieces.


Next, melt the 4 tablespoons of butter and then stir in flour. Cook for a few minutes and then add in milk. Season with salt & pepper and make sure to give a good stir once in a while. Cook until thickened. Stir in chopped up leftovers and cook on low for a few minutes.



Line your baking dish with half of a pie crust and fill up with filling. Cover with other half of crust making sure to crimp the edges. Cut three slits in the center and give the top a brushing of egg wash. Sprinkle with salt & pepper. Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown and bubbly.


I have made pot pies with a store-bought rotisserie chicken and a bag of frozen mixed veggies and they still turn out great. So have fun and get creative and most of all….

Enjoy :)
