Mini Turkey Pot Pies

After a Christmas dinner, there's always the inevitable leftovers.  Whether the leftovers are dreaded or a delight, is really up to us.  Nick loves pies in all shapes and forms.  From fruit pies, crumble pies, pumpkin, to meat pies, all pies are viewed and eaten equally and finished quickly.   So when we found out William Sonoma was selling the Breville Mini Pie Maker during the Christmas season, we quickly picked one up before they sold out.  It was handy for making leftovers a delight. The pie maker can make 4 pies but we chose to make 3 pies as that's exactly 1 sheet of Pillbury pie crust.  They do make perfect pies in 10 minutes.  We're looking forward to using this with beef stews, cooked fruits, chunky sauces.  This machine will probably be used very regularly to put leftovers to go use.  If you want to see the other uses of the Breville Mini Pie Maker...take a look at our recipe for Beef Stew Mini Pies here.

Mini Turkey Pot Pies
Makes 3 Mini Pies (machine has the ability to make 4 pies)
approx prep time: 10min
approx cook time: 10min

- 1/2 pack of Pillsbury Pie crust (at room temperature)
- 2 cups of cooked turkey leftovers (we used Turkey, peas, carrots, stuffing, butternut squash)
- 3 tablespoons of Campbell's cream of chicken soup

1) Preheat the Breville Mini Pie Maker (Red light means it's heating, Green light means it's ready)
2) Chop leftovers into little pieces, mix with 2-3 tablespoons of Cream of Chicken soup.
3) Roll out the Pillsbury pie crust, stamp 2 bottom crusts and 2 top crusts. 
4) Recombine the remaining pie crust, roll it out thinly, and stamp the last bottom and pie crust (you should have 3 tops and 3 bottoms)
5) Place bottom crust into the machine, use the black push wedge from the pie maker to set it into the pan, fill each pie up to the top and a bit more, making a mound on the top
6) Top pies with the top crust.
7) Lock machine, bake for 10 minutes.
8) Serve immediately.
