Time for a Turkey Pot Pie

Two days after Turkey day with tasty
leftovers in the refrigerator to use up.
Time to make a comforting turkey pot pie.
This is a recipe I came up with using
the usual leftover ingredients with one
added crispy surprise, potato chips.
Cooking up some fresh carrots, celery,
onions and using up some left over
turkey, gravy and mashed potatoes.
Better than Grandma used to make!

1 store bought pie crust
(which I always have in the refrigerator)
2 cups left over cooked turkey meat
2 cups left over mashed potatoes
1 fresh carrot, peeled and sliced
1 fresh celery stalk, sliced
1 small onion, peeled and chopped
1 cup left over turkey gravy
24 crispy potato chips
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Combine turkey,mashed potatoes and
gravy in a large mixing bowl.
Place carrots, celery and
onion in a glass dish.
Microwave on high for 6 minutes.
Add vegetables to turkey mixture.
Place turkey mixture in a casserole dish.
Arrange 12 potato chips over top of this.
Place left over mashed potatoes on top
and then arrange potato chips on top.
Cover with pie crust and bake for about
45 minutes or until crust is brown and
the turkey pot pie is turkey gobble good.
Cool a bit before serving.
