I don’t know about you, but I love a good potpie… chicken, turkey, beef, pork, or just plain veggies, I love them all. This recipe does not overcomplicate the dish; it has one main veggie (mushrooms) and one main protein (turkey). However, you could use beef, chicken, pork… whatever. It’s comfort food in a bowl. So, you ready, let’s get into the kitchen.
