Freeze Your Wild Turkey Pot Pie

Make one, freeze one! Wild turkey pot pie freezes well. I like to double this recipe to make two 9-inch pies and freeze the second pie for later. It makes a wonderful, quick and easy weeknight meal.

To freeze, cover the unbaked pie tightly in foil and then again in freezer-quality plastic wrap. Store in freezer for up to 3 months.

When you’re ready to bake it, brush the top of the frozen pie with egg and place in a 375-degree oven. Bake for 45 minutes to an hour. If the edges turn brown before the rest of the pie has cooked through, cover the edges with strips of foil.

Wild Turkey Pot Pie Pockets

Want to take your wild turkey pot pie to go? Use this recipe to make four individual pie pockets.

Unwrap both pie crusts and cut each into quarters. Take one piece of pie crust and put about ½ cup of the turkey mixture into the center of it. Brush egg around the edge of the pie crust and then top with another piece of crust. Crimp edges with a fork to seal pocket. Brush pocket with egg and cut a few small slits in the top. Repeat with the remaining pie crust pieces and turkey mixture. Place pockets on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake 20-30 minutes or until golden brown.
