Turkey Pie


Updated April 3, 2017


This is a delicious turkey pie made with a unique cornbread topping. This is a great way to use up those turkey leftovers, or cook a small turkey so you can make this!

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 60 minutes


Cornbread Topping Ingredients:

Filling
Instructions:

Toss the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt together. Beat the egg and add the milk and melted butter. Mix the dry and wet ingredients together, and stir in the herbs. Butter an 8 or 9-inch pie plate(it should be the circumference of the casserole you will use for the turkey base) and spread the corn bread batter evenly into the pan. Bake in a preheated 400F oven for 20 minutes.

In the meantime, cut the leeks into 1/2-inch pieces and cook in water to cover until just tender. Prepare the sauce: Melt the butter in a heavy saucepan, add the flour, and cook slowly for about 2 minutes over low heat, stirring. Off heat, whisk in the broth and milk, return to the heat, and cook, stirring constantly, until thick and smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste and nutmeg. Fold in the turkey meat, the leeks with a little of their cooking juices, and the cream. Heat through.

Place the turkey filling in an ovenproof casserole about 8 inches in diameter. When the cornbread is done, carefully remove it from the pan and place on top of the turkey filling. Return the casserole to the oven and bake 5-10 minutes until bubbling.
