How to Make Turkey Pie
The filling of this recipe reminds me of broccoli cheese dip. Unique and different, it’s a hearty addition to this pie
- Place crescent rolls in a 13×9 baking dish. Press onto the bottom and 1/2 way up the sides. Bake at 375˚ for 5-7 minutes or until it just starts to turn golden brown. (Don’t over bake!)
- In a bowl combine all the remaining ingredients, except for the egg. Spoon over the partially baked crust.
- Cut crescents into 1 inch strips and make a lattice design on top of the turkey mixture. Brush with egg and bake at 375˚ F for 17-22 minutes or until top crust is golden brown.
Sides to Go with the Pie
- 24 oz crescent rolls
- 4 Cups leftover turkey chopped
- 1 1/2 Cups cheddar or swiss cheese
- 10 oz frozen broccoli florets thawed and drained
- 1 can cream of chicken soup undiluted
- 1 1/3 Cups milk
- 2 Tablespoons dijon mustard
- 1 Tablespoon minced dry onion
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg lightly beaten
- Preheat oven to 375˚ F.
- Unroll two tubes of the crescent roll dough. Press onto the bottom and up 1/2 of the side of an ungreased 13x9 inch pan. Seal the perforations. Bake at 375˚ F for 5-7 minutes or just starting to turn lightly golden. Remove from oven.
- In a bowl, combine the turkey, broccoli, soup, milk, mustard, onion, and salt. Mix well and spoon over baked bottom crust layer.
- Unroll the remaining crescent roll. Divide into rectangles and seal the perforations. Cut each rectangle into 1 inch strips creating four long strips per rectangle. Using the strips create a lattice pattern over the filling. Brush with egg.
- Bake 17-22 minutes or until the top crust is golden brown and the filling reaches an internal temperature of 165˚ F.
