Cheesy Turkey and Mushroom Pie- is a great dish to reuse the turkey or chicken leftovers after the holidays. Easy to make, this recipe is truly comforting.
I don’t know about you, but I love savory pies. They are versatile and great any time of the day. The savory pies are one of my multiple solutions for comfort foods that are easy to make, even during the week, when everyone is busy and running around.
This wonderful cheesy turkey pie with mushrooms is a complete meal by itself and requires very little preparation. It is a great way to use leftover turkey or chicken(if you are not into turkey much) during the holidays.
Here are some ideas to come up with the cooked turkey/ chicken:
* Roast a turkey/chicken and use the meat for the pie.
* Boil 1-2 chicken breasts(1 turkey breast) in water for 25-30 minutes. Remove the meat from the water, let cool, then shred it using two forks.
* Have a big Thanksgiving meal and wrap the leftover turkey meat for later use.(like making this pie)
* Buy a roasted chicken/turkey from the grocery store and call it a day.
Besides the cooked turkey meat, this pie recipe requires mushrooms that are cooked together with onions. Separately, a batter made out of eggs, flour, baking powder and milk is mixed together with shredded cheese.
The mushrooms, onions and cooked turkey are added to this batter and everything is baked for 40 minutes into a beautiful pie that can be served for a brunch, light dinner or even lunch. Make a simple salad and serve it for a complete meal. A glass of white wine would go well with it.
No matter what you use, this is the perfect comfort food for the entire family. Enjoy!
