Don’s To Die For Turkey Pot Pie

Trust me, I do not tell a lie. It is totally addictive and you will always keep this recipe handy for you to make up year  after year.

  • 2 medium carrots, chopped fine
  • 1 medium onion, chopped fine
  • 1 ear of corn, kernals removed
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 4 tbsp. butter
  • 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 Knorr chicken cube, dissolved in 1 cup water
  • 1 tin Campbell’s cream of celery soup (secret ingredient)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 bundle bouquet garni: 2 tsp. marjoram, 2 tsp. thyme, 2 peppercorns, 1 bay leaf, 2 tsp. parsley
  • 4 cups chopped cooked turkey
  • Pastry to cover

In a medium pot, melt the butter with the olive oil and saute the vegetables until soft. Add 1/4 flour and cook a further 5-8 minutes.

Add 1 cup milk and stir to combine. Add the dissolved Knorr chicken cube, bouquet garni  and the tin of soup, blended with the second cup of milk. Stir for about 7-8 minutes.

Add 4 cups of turkey (bones and cartilage removed). Stir to combine and let cool.

Spoon into 2- 8 inch pie plates and top with pie pastry or puff pastry. Cook for 30 minutes in a 375 oven.

When completely cooled, wrap with plastic wrap and then tin foil and place in the freezer. HA! It won’t last that along.

*p.s.  I prefer the puff pastry top but that is just me.
