Turkey Pie

Serves 6

My favorite - sage scented turkey with mushrooms, onions and bacon all under a golden crust, and all steamy and warm when you bust it open. Yahoooo.


  • 1 ready to bake refrigerated pie crust
  • 2 cups diced cooked turkey
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 8 slices cooked bacon, diced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon sage
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 450
  2. Saute onions, mushrooms, sage and bacon in 1 tablespoon of the butter until softened
  3. Add turkey to mixture and put into pie plate
  4. In same pan, melt remaining butter while stirring in flour - it will make a gritty paste
  5. Stir in broth slowly to make a thick sauce and add Worcestershire
  6. Pour over turkey mixture
  7. Top with crust and brush top with milk
  8. Bake until top is golden brown - about 20 minutes - and serve
