Turkey Pot Pie recipe perfect for Thanksgiving leftovers

Add some vegetables and a bought pie crust to your leftover turkey for this quick and easy Turkey Pot Pie. I find pot pies on the menus of many restaurants.

It has the meat, vegetables and starch all in one and it takes only 25 minutes to make. If you like, open a washed ready-to-eat bag of salad to go with it.

Over the years, I have overcome and cooked my way around all these classic cheats. But canned pumpkin? I won't face the holiday without it.

Then when the snow begins to fly, he supplements their grass diet with extra calories and protein from hay and grain.
