Smoked Turkey Pot Pie

When digging through my freezer recently I came across 2 turkey thigh/leg pieces left over from Thanksgiving. Score! So I whipped up a pot pie with these wonderful smoked turkey pieces, but I only used one so I still have one more in reserve for when the weather turns even nastier than it is now.

Smoked Turkey Pot Pie
2 cups smoked turkey, diced *
1/2 onion, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
2 cups frozen peas/carrots mix
1 cup frozen hash browns or diced potatoes
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
3 cups milk
1 teaspoon thyme
1 bay leaf
2 teaspoons fresh ground black pepper
1 pinch nutmeg

Preheat oved to 350 and spray a 9 by 9 baking dish with non-stick spray. Saute the onion, celery, turkey and bay leaf together with the butter for 5 minutes on medium low. Turn heat to high and sprinkle flour over veggies and turkey. Stir until all of the flour is mixed into the butter and other stuff. Add milk and stir until it starts simmering. Add peas/carrots, potatoes, black pepper, nutmeg and thyme. Pour into baking dish and set aside.

*If you don’t have smoked turkey you can just use regular turkey and add 1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke when you add the milk and of course you can make this with chicken as well, I used turkey because that’s what I had.

Cheese and Chive Biscuits
1 1/4 cup biscuit mix
1/2 – 3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
3 Tablespoons chives, sliced fine

Mix everything together, starting with 1/2 cup milk and adding more if it’s really thick.

Drop on the top of the pot pie and bake for 1 hour or until the biscuits are brown.
