  • Leftover Turkey Pot Pie

    Leftover Turkey Pot Pie

    Not sure what to do with extra turkey? Pot pie is the solution. The flavors here are traditional: celery, onion, and carrots with a little parsley thrown in. Feel free to take it in a new direction with, say, a tablespoon of curry powder. Baking the pies in ramekins decreases the cooking time (plus they look way cuter). Get the recipe »
