How to Cook Turkey Pie with Leftovers

This recipe for turkey pie is one of my favorite ways of using up leftover turkey after Christmas.

It uses pre-cooked (i.e. leftover) turkey, and so is very quick to cook, as you just need to cook the mushrooms and heat the turkey through.

This is the quickest and easiest type of pie to make. It is called an ‘open’ pie because it is not enclosed with a pastry base like a traditional pie. This makes it super quick to cook (no blind-baking required), and also healthier as you are cutting down on the pastry involved.

The easiest thing about the recipe is that the filling is cooked in a pan and only the top crust is cooked in the oven, meaning it can be on the table in less than 20 minutes!

As a variation, you could use any leftover poultry, but at this time of year, we mostly seem to have leftover turkey for some reason…

Serve with a side of fresh steamed vegetables (try microwave steamed broccoli), for a quick and delicious dinner.
