Individual Turkey Pot Pies

The Breakstone’s Triple Churned Blogger Contest has asked that I create a holiday menu using Breakstone’s triple churned sour cream. Earlier this week I featured my Mini Potato Bites for the appetizer and here is the second component to the menu: Individual Turkey Pot Pies.

Leftover turkey from your latest holiday spread? Instead of noshing on a mundane turkey sandwich, whip up these simple, individual turkey pot pies.  This satisfying entrée starts with a rich and hearty Breakstone’s sour cream sauce, which is the perfect texture and consistency to warm you up on that lazy, chilly afternoon.

By simply cutting up leftover Thanksgiving turkey and adding some flavorful vegetables, you are able to create a hearty and scrumptious pot pie filling that no one will be able to refuse. The finishing touch? Top this savory sauce with flaky puff pastry that is filled with buttery goodness.

By serving these in a single size bowl, your family and guests will get the perfect serving to feel delighted and satisfied with your meal. These turkey pot pies are a surefire way to turn ordinary leftover turkey into something extraordinary.

Individual Turkey Pot Pies

Ingredients:

4 cups turkey or chicken stock;
12 tablespoons butter
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
2 sprigs fresh thyme (leaves only)
16 ounce package of frozen vegetable for soup mix
4 cups turkey; cooked and shredded
1/2 cup Breakstone’s Sour Cream
1 sheet frozen puff pastry dough; thawed according to package directions

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly butter the insides of six oven-safe ramekins.

2. In a small saucepan, heat stock until hot, but not boiling.

3. In a large pot or Dutch oven, melt butter. Add flour and stir constantly over low heat for 2 minutes.

4. Slowly whisk in the heated stock and simmer for 5 minutes or until sauce has thickened.

5. Add in salt, pepper, thyme, frozen vegetables and shredded turkey; heat until vegetables and turkey are heated through; about 10 minutes. Stir in Breakstone’s Sour Cream until fully incorporated.

6. Meanwhile, lightly flour a work surface and unfold your sheets of thawed puff pastry. Roll the dough slightly. Use the top of a ramekin as a template to cut out 6 circles from the puff pastry sheet.

7. Divide turkey mixture evenly between the six oven-safe ramekins.

8. Place a puff pastry circles directly on top of the each ramekin. Place ramekins on sheet pan.

9. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown.

Thank you for a delicious recipe! Great use for turkey leftovers! My only stumbling block was that I didn't have any ramekins. One quick trip to Goodwill and I was ready to cook these! I found 4 matching fall pottery ramekins for $1.49 each. :-) Our Vitamix made shredding the turkey a breeze. Instead of the puff pastry, we used 'Grands' biscuits to top the pies. Wonderful! Since I only found 4 ramekins, I had extra pot pie mix. I put that into a loaf pan and am freezing it to cook later. As a mom to two young boys, I look for recipes that are easy to put together and this was perfect. Now, I'm excited to browse through your other recipes in search of some more gems! Thanks again for sharing your recipe!

My husband wanted pot pie for dinner. My norm of late is to see if you have a recipe - my daughter made a homemade crust for the standard pot pie as I don't have any cute little ramekins. We absolutely loved this recipe! Yummy!
