Jacob and I were blessed to harvest some nice turkeys this spring season and lots of folks wonder what do hunters do with those turkeys. One of our favorite ways of eating turkeys is to make pot pies with them. The kids love them and they’re easy to make. We’ve used this recipe for a number of different game birds and have had great results.

Turkey Pot Pie

Makes Two Pot Pies

4 unbaked pastry shells
1/2 C butter
8 Tb flour
3 C chicken broth
1 C milk
2 Tb sugar (+/- to taste)
3 C cooked turkey pieces cut up
1/4 tsp salt
Pepper (to taste)
1 pkg frozen mixed vegetables

Cut up turkey into small pieces and cook. Set aside when done.


Combine butter and flour in saucepan over low heat, add chicken broth and milk, stirring until thickened. Stir in cooked turkey, salt, pepper, sugar, and mixed vegetables. Mix well. Pour into two pastry shells.

Cover each pie with a second crust and pinch edges closed. Poke holes into top crust to let heat escape when cooking in oven.

Bake at 425 degrees for 40 minutes or until crust is golden. You can freeze one for later or cook both cuz it’ll get gobbled up quick!
