Servings 4 pot pies
- 1 double pie crust recipe
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- 1/2 medium onion
- 2 celery stalks
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 1 tsp dried rosemary
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1 medium carrot
- 1/2 cup green beans
- 1/4 cup green peas
- 1/4 cup corn kernels
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1 can cream of chicken
- 1.5 cups milk
- 1 egg
If making a homemade crust like this one from Inspired Taste (my favourite), first start by following the dough instructions. The pie dough has to sit in the fridge for an hour before it can be rolled out. Pack the dough into four separate disks before refrigerating.
Once the dough has set for an hour, roll each disk out so it's nice and thin, then place inside a ramekin. The dough will fold over itself in a few spots inside the ramekin. Just remove the fold and pinch the sides back together. Remove the extra dough from the upper edge and place the entire ramekin in the refrigerator until the filling is ready.
Repeat for all four ramekins, collect all the extra dough and form into a disk. Refrigerate the extra dough with the ramekins.
Heat a medium saucepan on medium heat and the oil. Dice up the onion and celery and add them to the saucepan once the oil is hot. Cook until the onion is translucent and in the meantime dice up the carrots, green beans, leftover turkey and press the garlic with a garlic press or mince.
Once the onions are cooked, add in the carrots, green beans, garlic, thyme, rosemary, salt, corn and peas. Cook for a couple of minutes, then mix in the flour. Cook while stirring for a minute or two, then mix in the cream of chicken soup until fully combined, then the milk. Bring to a simmer and cook until thick, about five minutes, then stir in the turkey.
Top Crust and Bake
Heat the oven to 350°. Roll out the extra dough and shape your crust topping(s). Whisk an egg and brush the top of each pie, then bake in the preheated oven for 25-35 minutes, until the tops of the Individual Turkey Pot Pies are golden. Serve hot and enjoy!
- The recipe for homemade pie dough is absolutely delicious and super easy to make! I highly recommend you choose this rather than buy it from the grocery store.
- I find placing the dough on top of my fist and sliding the ramekin over top the easiest and quickest way to fit the dough inside.
