Leftover turkey pot pie

Pot pies are a great way to use up leftover roast meat and leftover turkey is just perfect for mixing with creamy sauce and topping with buttery puff pastry. And while you’re at it, add any of the leftover vegetables too! Brussels Sprouts, green beans, carrots and roasted sweet potato/pumpkin will all work so well in this turkey pot pie.

Shred leftover turkey meat and place in a large bowl. Add vegetables of your choice (leftover roasted/cooked vegetables and mixed frozen vegetables work well) along with shop-bought cheese sauce, sour cream and seasoning. Mix well then transfer to an oven-proof dish and top with thawed puff pastry. Brush with egg wash and place in the oven. Allow to bake until the pastry is golden brown and puffed and the filling is hot throughout.

Leftover turkey pot pieHow long does it take to cook a turkey pot pie?

In a 200ºC/390ºF oven, the turkey pot pie should be fully cooked in 20-30 minutes. Because all the filling ingredients are already cooked, you just want to cook the pastry and make sure the filling is hot throughout. Puff pastry needs around 20 minutes to puff up fully.

Can you freeze cooked turkey pot pie?

To freeze the pot pie, assemble all the way up to baking then wrap tight in a layer of plastic wrap and another of foil. Freeze for up to 3 months. Bake from frozen (simply adjust baking time to allow the pie to fully defrost and become hot throughout).
