Pot Pie: The Turkey and Gluten Free Edition

I [might] be obsessed with yummy gluten free recipes!  After Thanksgiving I had a ton of turkey leftovers.  This meant a lot of turkey sandwiches.  In order to cut back on the bread, I decided to make a gluten free turkey pot pie for dinner one evening instead.   I used all the white meat turkey and cut it up in chunks.  The best part about this dish is that you can use what you probably already have in your pantry.  It’s a great solution to leftovers!

I found a great gluten free pastry dough made by Pillsbury!  This stuff is the best ever!  The package says to continue to knead it until it’s not crumbly.  This does take some time but then it is very moldable and perfect!

Here’s the ingredients I used for my Turkey Pot Pie but you can definitely substitute with your favorites.

  • turkey pot pie turkey1/2 container of Pillsbury Gluten Free Pie and Pasty Dough
  • 1 can Progresso Creamy Mushroom Soup (perhaps leftovers from green bean casserole?)
  • 1 12oz bag frozen mixed veggies
  • 2 cups chopped turkey
  • 1/4 cup greek yogurt
  • 2 cloves garlic, mined
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • Thyme, Cilantro, salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.   In a saucepan, heat all ingredients to a boil except the turkey and yogurt.

Remove from heat and stir in turkey and yogurt.  I left the turkey out until this last part because it is already cooked.  Spoon into the bottom of a 2-quart casserole.

For the pie crust – knead until softened.  This took a little a lot longer than I thought it would!  Flatten into a round and place between 2 pieces of parchment (or waxed) paper.  Slowly and carefully remove the bottom side of the paper while simultaneously laying over the pie pan.  Keep peeling the paper back until it is off.  Peel off the top.  Press crust edges and make small slits in the dough.

Bake for 20 minutes until hot and bubbly and the top is golden brown.  Serve this yummy dish and look at how much turkey you have gotten rid of!

Next time I make this, I think I will use little single serve ramekins.  I think they are cute and just something different.  🙂

Anyway, I know it’s a little after the Holiday Turkeys but if you find yourself with extra turkey, give this a try!

Bon Appetite!
