Dads Leftover Turkey Pot Pie Casserole

Dad was a wiz in the kitchen and loved to experiment! We had this amazing dish one lazy Sunday afternoon when everyone was hungry but no one wanted to cook. It’s been a tradition ever since! I will make this all year long, but it is especially good a few days after Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner when the family is still together.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¾ cup onion, diced
  • 1 ¼ cups carrots, diced
  • ¾ cup celery, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 2 ½ cups chopped turkey white or dark meat are ne
  • 1 ¼ cups frozen peas
  • salt and pepper to taste

Topping

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 large egg
  • cup whole milk

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • In a large pot over medium heat, heat the oil until shimmering. Saute the onion, carrots, and celery until softened.
  • Stir in the flour until no lumps remain. Add in about ¼ cup of broth and stir until thick sauce forms. Add the remaining broth and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and allow to simmer until thickened, about 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the turkey and peas. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Pour into an 8×11-inch baking pan and set aside.
  • Make the topping by whisking together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • In a separate small bowl, beat together the egg and milk. Pour into the flour and stir to combine. It should be a sticky dough.
  • Drop dough of about 2 to 3 tablespoons each on top of the turkey mixture. Bake for 17-19 minutes, until the topping is golden brown.
