A recipe for Thanksgiving leftovers


I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. Now, what to do with leftover turkey? Patricia Nicholes says to make a turkey pot pie, and she gave me the recipe.

I said, “Yes, I am making this.” I love pot pies and I have all the ingredients to make one. It looks pretty easy. Thank you, Patricia, for this recipe.

As for myself, I am still full of Thanksgiving and I might just eat a salad and save this for later. I need a break from my kitchen. Or maybe I will order a pizza. I do happen to have a free pizza coupon from my friend at Papa Johns. Thank you, Chip. Now I guess I really will have to make you a peanut butter pie.

Have a great week, and please send me your favorite holiday recipes. Send them to [email protected] or call me at 937-393-3456.


Pie ingredients

One roasted turkey breast, diced;

Three cooked diced potatoes, two carrots diced and cooked;

Half small onion chopped, salt and pepper;

1/2 cup cooked peas;

Two cups Turkey gravy made from Turkey drippings;

Two crusts.

Sometimes I do one cup turkey gravy mixed with one can cream of chicken soup. Mix ingredients. Set aside.

Crust ingredients

Two cups flour;

1 tsp. salt;

1 tsp sugar;

One cup shortening or butter;

Roll out crust, pour in turkey mixture.

Cover with top crust. Crimp crust.

Make a few slits in the top. Beat eggs with a little cold water brush on the crust.
