Leftover Turkey Potpie

As most of you, I am planning my weekly meals around the abundance of leftover turkey. Tomorrow, I am going to make turkey potpie using the recipe below! Yummy!!

2-3 c. mixed vegetables
5 c. turkey
1/3 c. butter
1/3 c. flour
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. crushed thyme
1/4 tsp. rosemary
1 c. milk
2 c. broth

Pie crust - I usually use the pre-made crusts but will try to make my own tomorrow, time willing.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Mix ingredients together in a large pot on the stove. Stir until broth and milk are thick and bubbly.

Cover bottom of round baking dish with 1/2 of the crust, set the remaining half aside. Pour vegetable/turkey mixture in dish carefully, then cover with the remaining crust. Bake in oven for 15 minutes or until crust is nice and brown.
Can also be made and then frozen, but baking time will need to be increased.

What are your plans for your leftover turkey??
