The thing about roasting a turkey is that you have a significant amount of turkey meat on your hands. This calls for an arsenal of go-to turkey recipes and a little bit of patience from your kids with the single meat option for the week. Fortunately, there are a plethora of options for turkey. I decided to start with the tastiest first. Pot pie! I have not had pot pie since I was around nine years old. Around that time, they were declared unhealthy by my mother and no longer offered on the dinner menu. I admit, they aren’t the healthiest meal, but how often do you get to eat your dinner wrapped in pie crust? Sometimes you just need to live a little.
*Note: I made individual-sized versions of this recipe to cut down on the cook time. If you want to make the full version in a pie pan, just double everything minus the pie crust.
