It seems that every year, the week after Thanksgiving and Christmas, I’m struggling to figure out how to use the turkey leftovers, (now in my freezer) determined not to let anything go to waste. The problem is, everyone in my house is tired of eating turkey soup and turkey sandwiches. This year, I’m pretty excited about my new recipe that not only transforms the turkey leftovers to an exciting new dish but is something you can make, freeze and enjoy whenever you want.

This turkey pot pie is a nourishing comfort food that will fill your belly with warmth and your home with a mouthwatering aroma as it bakes.

This recipe is also fantastic with chicken.

Ingredients for the crust:

• 8 tbsp cold unsalted butter cut into ½ inch squares
• ¾ tsp sea salt
• 6 Tbsp ice water
• 1 egg for egg wash (optional)

Ingredients for the filling:
