After Thanksgiving I had alot of turkey left over, so I thought I would make mini pot pies, with the Christmas rush approaching, wouldn't it be great to just pull them out of the freezer for a quick meal, with cranberry sauce on the side. Thought I would post as some don't think of doing this.

How to Make Turkey Pot Pies (mini's)

Step-by-Step

  1. Make up your pie crust, or defrost your frozen crust.
    Roll out to fit your individual pie plates, or one large pie crust, your choice.
    Roll out the crust to fit the size of your pie plate.
  2. Gather whatever veggies you decide to use. I used a bag of frozen veggies and long grain rice mixture.
    Make your gravy, I make my own, or use a bottled gravy or gravy mix. Pour your veggies into the the gravy in saucepan on stove and heat all til defrosted, also at this time put in your pre cooked potatoes or rice or broken up noodles.
  3. When all heated up in the gravy pour into the pie plate, or plates, almost to the top, roll out the dough to the size of your pie plate, seal edges, cut steam hole on top and brush the top(s) with one beaten egg mixed with a tablespoon of milk.
  4. When the pies are all made , I put them in small individual freezer bags and put them in the freezer to have anytime for a quick meal.
    To heat up: Put in preheated oven 325-350 degrees, to brown and start to bubble, everything is precooked so your just reheating it all. Should take about 20-25 minutes, watch closely as each oven is different.
