Homemade Turkey Pot Pie

The secret to the mouthwatering flavor of this pot pie is the preparation of the filling ~ the turkey and vegetables are blanketed in a special cream sauce that complements their individual flavors.  Once baked, the light flaky crust is the perfect topping to this pie.

6 cups chicken broth
3 cups potatoes (about 3 medium), peeled and cut into pieces
2 cups carrots (about 4 medium), cut into ½” slices
1 large onion, loosely chopped
3 cups celery (about 3 celery ribs), cut into ½” slices
5 Tbs. butter
5 Tbs. flour
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 Tbs. mustard
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped

3 teaspoons nutmeg
Salt and pepper to taste
2 cups corn, frozen or canned
2 cups peas, frozen or canned
5-6 cups turkey, cooked and cut into bite-size pieces
2 packages refrigerated crescent rolls

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F

1.   In a large stock pot, boil the potatoes, carrots, onions and celery until vegetables are tender (about 15 minutes.) Turn off heat.

2.   While vegetables are cooking, sauté butter in a skillet; add flour and heat to create a roux.

3.   Bring the mixture up to a simmer.  Gently add the roux to the broth in the large stock pot, taking care to mix well.

4.   Stir in the heavy cream.

5.   Add the fresh parsley, thyme and nutmeg; mix to combine seasonings.  Salt and pepper to taste.

6.   Add the corn, peas and turkey.  Gently stir to combine all ingredients.

7.   Simmer on medium until sauce begins to thicken (about 5 minutes).

8.   Pour mixture into large 9” x 13” glass baking dish or two deep glass pie dishes.

9.   Open the crescent rolls, unroll and cover the casseroles.  Leave ¼” between the edges of the dish and the dough.

10. Bake for 35-45 minutes; the crust should be golden brown.
