An After Thanksgiving Recipe

Hello There, I hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving. Enjoyed your family and friends. I sure did even though our oldest daughter couldn't join us this year (her first year away) and of course we missed my dad but I know he was with us. There is a lot to be grateful for. 
It's been a while since I shared a recipe with you all. With all the turkey left over I thought I would make Turkey pot pies. They came out really good so I thought I would share the recipe in case you has left over turkey too and wanted to they something new.

I had never made this before so I turned to my old trusted cookbook 
This book had every recipe you ever wanted to make. I love the waffle recipe and this booked
helped me cook my first Turkey (some 30 years ago) and I can say that I have alway had my turkeys come out moist.
Chicken or Turkey Pot Pie
6 servings (I only got 3 out of this recipe)
1/4 cup butter or margarine
6 tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
2 cup chicken broth
3 cups bit-size cooked chicken or turkey meat
1/4 teaspoon rosemary
1/4 teaspoon savory
1 tablespoon minced parsley
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon peper
2 cups cooked carrots; thinly sliced
2 cups cooked peas
1 box(2 inside box) Pie Crust (i used Pillsbury Pastry Pie Shell Crust)
1 egg yolk mixed with a tablespoon of water.

preheat oven 450 degrees. Melt butter in large pan over moderate heat, blend in flour, add milk, and broth, and heat, stirring until thickened. add chicken and all seasoning, cover and simmer 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool to room temperature. Mix in carrots and peas and spoon into 5" aluminum pot pie tins. I lined it with the pie crust. I used the plastic cover that come with the tins to make the circle and lined the inside of the tins. I used the extras pie crust to lay over the top and I pierce the top of the pie crust and brushed with the yolk mixture making sure not to cover the piercing. Place in oven for 30-40 mins.

note: I changed it a bit. I didn't have the rosemary or the savory so I added onion and garlic powder  and celery salt to taste. This recipe has you put the meat mixture in a casserole dish instead of the pot pie tins. My family really liked them. you can see I was being a bit artsy with one of the tops, lol I could help myself.

Thanks for taking a peek,
