Turkey Pot Pie with Easy Biscuit Topping

Turkey Pot Pie with Easy Biscuit Topping | Good Cheap Eats

We’re creatures of habit around here. When I find a recipe that all my people enjoy, I don’t typically veer from it. But over the last year or so, I’ve been experimenting with different methods and recipes looking for new and different ways to prepare our favorites.

We are pot pie kind of people around here. It’s a meal that’s well-received by my whole family. For the longest time, this Chicken Pot Pie was the regular standard. But, I’m busting out a little around here. I’ve made pot pie with beef, with pork, with a single crust, with a double crust.

This month I made it with a green-onion biscuit top. Super yum! And a little less messy than my typical short crust topping.

This is the perfect meal to repurpose leftovers from a large turkey or chicken dinner. If you’ve already got vegetables, meat, and gravy, all you need to do is whir up the crust in the food processor and slide this baby in the oven. To make it even simpler, I used a bag of frozen stir fry vegetables.

You can vary the fillings depending on what you have on hand. The savory top will go well on a number of fillings. I’m thinking of trying it over sausage, veggies, and tomato sauce as well as over a chile-scented pork filling. Really, the options are endless.

  1. We love our biscuit-topped pot pie too! So much quicker to pull together. This looks great.

  2. this sounds wonderful! do you think I could use whole wheat flour in the topping? I am gonna try.

  3. I’m wondering if this could be frozen successfully? I think I will make this recipe in two smaller pans and freeze one.

    • I’ve been thinking about that. I think the biscuit topping would be really soggy. My suggestion would be to freeze the filling and the dry biscuit mix separately. Then all you’d need to do would be to mix the biscuit top and assemble.

  4. Biscuit topped pot pies are our favorite. I made a Veggie pot pie with a rosemary biscuit topping the other night. It was a hit and we didn’t miss the meat.

  5. This looks great. We lean toward the “low carb” camp and have a favorite almond flour biscuit recipe. I’m wondering if I could adapt that to use on this!

  6. I’ve made this a few times and I really enjoy it! It’s super easy. But there’s one thing…

    The biscuit topping is super thick and can’t be poured. Plus, I have to double the recipe in order to cover a 9X13 pan. Is there something I’m doing wrong? Or should it be super thick?

    My favorite gravy is one part cashews with one part water or broth and seasonings. Cook and add more water until it’s the right consistency. You won’t find a better gravy anywhere and it never lumps.
