|Slice of Turkey Pot Pie|
The Tunes: INXS Live Baby Live
After a successful turkey dinner at Thanksgiving, there was a pile of turkey leftovers so one delicious way to use them up is by making a turkey pot pie. Afterwards, mom asked me if I used dad's recipe, which I did not. I was unaware he had a specific recipe. So perhaps next turkey time, I'll try that one. But for now, I used this recipe from allrecipes.
Now it still had a home feeling since I used the last of the dough that mom made last time she was in town.
I haven't pulled out a CD to listen to while making dinner in a while so I decided to go to the shelf. INXS Live Baby Live is a good live album of their late 80's and early 90's tracks (a bunch from their mega successful album "Kick" which I also have). We picked this album up originally in 1991 while travelling in Australia as it had just been released at that time.
|Turkey and vegetable mix in the pan|
4 Tbls Butter
1 Onion (diced)
2 Stalks Celery (chopped)
2 Carrots (Peeled and chopped)
1 Tsp Oregano
2 Cups Chicken Broth
3 Small Potatoes (Peeled and cubed)
2 Cups Leftover Turkey
3 Tbls Flour
1/2 Cup Milk
|Uncooked pie with filling|
In a separate pan, toss in the remaining butter, turkey, flour and milk and heat. Add the turkey mix to the vegetable mix and prep the pie dough.
I used a 9" pie dish with crust on the bottom and top with slits cut in the top to allow steam to escape. This made a ton of pie which I ate for lunch and dinner for several days.
