  1. This recipe sounds delicious. I’m looking forward to trying it soon. Thanks!

    In the past, I’ve used leftover turkey for pot pies. I buy packaged pie crusts, a can or two of mixed veggies with potatoes and a can or two of turkey gravy. You can also use homemade but this is the lazy version.

    Chop up turkey, add veggies and at least half a can of gravy. Bake at 350 for about 45 min. Use the rest of the gravy on the top before serving.
