How To Make Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey Pot Pie

There’s nothing more comforting to me than a steamy, savory pot pie — except, maybe, for a bountiful Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings. But what if you could take those two delicious things and combine them into one perfect, seasonal dish?

Enter: Joy the Baker’s stuffing-topped turkey pot pie. This recipe, as Joy says on her blog, is “essentially an entire Thanksgiving feast in a single pot pie.” 

Joy’s turkey pot pie involves a whole lot of traditional Thanksgiving ingredients, all combined in one pie pan. You’ll get a base of an all-butter pie crust; a filling of onions, garlic, carrots, frozen peas, green beans, and turkey mixed with gravy; and a crumble topping made with StoveTop Stuffing and dried cranberries. While the recipe can be made as a smaller and more streamlined Thanksgiving dinner, it’s also an ingenious way to use up all those leftovers the next day. 

We’re all very grateful that Thanksgiving will be closer to a traditional celebration this year, but a delicious way to do things smaller — or a fantastic way to repurpose leftovers — is always something we want to have in our back pocket.
