A Turkey Solution, But Struggle With Technology

Christmas is over and now you are faced with tons of left-overs. Just a suspicion because my refrigerator is packed.

Need a good idea on how to use up that left-over turkey?

This recipe was located in my great friend Marsha's cookbook, Recipes & Recollections.
If you are interested in purchasing a cookbook, this is where you go.
Believe me I know that the cookbook created by The Better Baker makes a very nice gift; the cookbook entered my family Christmas.

You know me, I had to add my two cents to this recipe.

I used pasta combo vegetables, threw in a little thyme, and used Jiffy buttermilk biscuit mix.

This recipe turned out great!!

Here is a quick peek of the inside of The Better Baker's cookbook. Very good organization, clear printing, and simple foods for the everyday (busy) cook. The Better Baker focuses on simple, flavor, and organization. Most of her recipe ingredients can be found in your very own pantry.

My mom and her husband deliver packages of smoked turkey every year to family members. Other than the original sandwich, I wanted to find a way to really use this smoked turkey.

Easy Turkey Pot Pie was the solution.

Ha, I am quick at finding a solution using food, but when it comes to technology and solutions to make things easier for myself, I am blind.

I had myself all worked into a frazzle today dreading the 18 mile drive I was going to have to make to pay my internet bill.

Due to the sluggish economy, my local internet company had to down-size and they relocated 18 miles away. So instead of 9 miles, the drive is now 18.

I was going on-and-on today (pacing the house) about having to make that drive, the cost of gas, and just having to go out (baby, it's cold outside).

As my frazzle is heating up to its utmost limit, my significant other looks and me and calmly says, "Why don't you just make the payment online?"

OMG!! Why didn't I think of that?

I know why; because the solution doesn't have anything to do with food, DUH!!

The cheddar flavor in the vegetables went perfect with the smoked turkey.

Instead of using the cream of chicken soup you could probably use the cheddar cheese soup that is available. Mental note: good idea

The biscuit mix was poured on top and the pot pie was slipped into the oven.

A delicious 30 minute meal.

Doesn't that look amazing?

Perfectly browned, flaky crust, and the creaminess is fantastic.

Easy Turkey Pot Pie

1 (10 3/4 oz.) can cream of chicken soup
2 TBS milk
1 (16 oz.) package Freshlike pasta combos, cheddar flavor (thawed)
1 c. fully cooked smoked turkey
ground thyme to taste
1/2 c. milk
1 egg
1 c. Jiffy buttermilk biscuit mix

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Combine soup, milk, vegetables, turkey, and thyme; pour into 9 inch pie plate (I used a 9 inch cake pan with deeper sides) coated with cooking spray. In small bowl, combine milk, egg, and baking mix. Pour over vegetable mixture and bake for 30 minutes.
The Better Baker (Marsha) says she likes to pepper the crust before baking.
Yield: 4 servings (could possibly get 6 if served with a salad).

Good Luck~Happy Eating~Enjoy

  1. Yum!!! I have all the ingredients to make this so I think this is on the agenda for tomorrow!


  2. Where do you find that pasta/veggie combo? Never seen it before but it looks yummy... Thanks

  3. Joelle,

    It should be in with the frozen veggies in the grocery store. I find it at my local grocery store (the Chief). I bet it could be found at Meijer or Wal Mart too. They may carry different brands.

  4. What a grand idea to use those pasta cheesey veggies! Thanks for sharing my recipe - your pictures were great!! And get this....I made turkey vegetable soup earlier this week. As we enjoyed another bowlful for dinner tonight, I told hubby I was going to use the rest of the soup for turkey pot pie. (BIG GRINS) He already said MMMM! I have some pie crust dough in the freezer that I will use for the crust. I can hardly wait! Thanks again for making me smile!!! YOU're so good at that! =)

  5. Oh hey - I forgot to say you added the perfect scripture verse to this post too - you are sooo clever!

  6. Angie that is just so beautiful and delicious!


I look forward to and appreciate any comments.
