Fun with leftovers! With potlucks, family gatherings and holidays coming up there is always something leftover, let’s reimagine it as pie.
Yield: 6 pies
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1-1/2 cups chicken stock ~ or turkey, beef or veggie stock
1 tsp finely chopped fresh thyme, sage or rosemary ~ or use a ½ tsp dried
1 pressed garlic clove
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1 cup frozen veggies, thawed ~ or leftover veggies
1-1/2 cups diced cooked turkey ~ or cooked beef, chicken or pork
1/2 cup milk
1 pkg refrigerated pie crusts (2 crusts), softened according to package
Add a decorative touch on top using a decorating bag to pipe mashed potatoes. Pretty and tasty!
Reimagining leftovers with the Grandkids is fun: pick out cookie cutters, decorate and experience using leftovers rather than tossing them.
