View Full Version : Turkey potpie from eating well
10-24-2004, 08:02 AM
I was curious if anyone had made the turkey potpie recipe from eating well. I saw this in the magazine and it looked like a good recipe to use up leftover turkey soon to be here. If so what did you think?

Haven't made it yet, but I have everything except the mushrooms in the house, so after I get to the store this week it will be on the menu(probably for late this week or early next). Will try to remember to post review.

I STILL have not rec'd my Fall EW :mad:
I requested a replacement weeks ago. I hope it comes this week. I am roasting a turkey today, so the pot pie might be a good use for some leftovers.

We had this tonight and thought it was very good. (I had made a similar recipe from one of Ina Garten's cookbooks, and although we liked it, not something I'd make again due to the high fat content.) This one from Eating Well was good, and was easy to make too. I did add a little more salt than the recipe called for.

I made this tonight, and it was one of the best pot pies I had ever had. I made it with a rotisserie chicken, but pretty much stuck to the recipe otherwise. The thyme adds a nice touch to the crust (which wasn't the flaky kind of crust you'd get with a high fat crust but rather more "bready") and the crimini mushrooms are a must. Definitely a repeater in our house!

We had this tonight for dinner, and both DH and I really enjoyed it. As was mentioned, the crust is more bready but it has a very nice flavor and is nice and light. The only changes that I made were to add garlic to the filling and a bit of herbes de provence. Will definetely make this one again. Good comfort food on a dreary fall evening!
