Turkey and Mushroom Potpie (with video)

Andy Anderson !


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.

    Recipe: French Sauce Supreme
  • 3Gather your ingredients.
  • 4Heat up a dry sauté pan over medium heat.
  • 5When hot add about a tablespoon of grapeseed oil.
  • 6Chef’s Tip: Heating up the pan before adding the oil, makes the pan essentially non-stick.
  • 7Add the turkey, or whatever protein you are using.
  • 8Cook until the pink is removed, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  • 9Chef’s Note: Do not over cook.
  • 10Remove the turkey from the pan and set aside.
  • 11Add the shallot and garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  • 12Chef’s Note: The pan will still have some of the oil left over from cooking the turkey. However, you might need a bit more as the cooking progresses.
  • 13Add the mushrooms to the shallot/garlic mix.
  • 14Cook until softened, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  • 15Deglaze the pan with sherry, or chicken stock, about a tablespoon or two.
  • 16Return the chicken to the pan.
  • 17Add the French sauce supreme.
  • 18Stir to combine.
  • 19Season with salt and pepper, and allow it to simmer for a few minutes.
  • 20Place a rack in the middle position, and preheat the oven to 390f (200c).
  • 21Add the filling to two ramekins, or one larger ovenproof dish.
  • 22Add the puff-pastry top.
  • 23Cut some steam vents into the pastry.
  • 24Lightly brush with the egg wash.
  • 25Bake for 20 minutes or until the pastry is puffed up and golden.
  • 26Serve while still warm. Enjoy.
  • 27Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
