Thanksgiving Leftovers

Okay, so I've been putting cranberry sauce in everything, but what about the turkey?

To be honest, I've been enjoying turkey sandwiches. And stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes ... little mini-Thanksgiving meals without the formality.

Soup is coming soon, but meanwhile I made some turkey pot pies.

No measurements, but a double batch of pastry dough went into four little cast iron pots. The filling was roughly equal parts of turkey, mixed frozen vegetables, pearl onions, cooked diced potatoes, and gravy. I tossed in the few leftover carrots from dinner. There didn't seem to be enough moisture, so I topped it off with some heavy cream that was left after I'd needed some for other holiday recipes.

The dough went into the pots, the filling went in, then I put on the top crust, crimped, slit some vent holes, and baked at 400 degrees until the crust was brown and the filling was bubbling. And that was it. Simple. Filling. Dinner. Yum.
