  • In a large saucepan, bring the water with salt to a boil, and cook the potatoes until tender, about 20 minutes; stir the turkey and mixed vegetables into the boiling water, and bring the mixture back to a boil over medium heat. Mix cornstarch and 2 cups of milk together in a bowl until thoroughly combined, and stir the milk mixture into the saucepan with the turkey and vegetables. Bring to a simmer, stirring constantly, and cook until the mixture thickens, about 5 minutes. Pour the turkey mixture into a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  • Place the corn bread mix into a bowl, and beat eggs and 1 cup of milk into the mix. Spread the batter over the turkey and gravy mixture.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the corn bread topping is golden brown, about 30 minutes.

Easy to make but definitely needed some seasoning added. Just barely fit in a 9/13 pan. Way more cornbread topping than filling. Might try again with only two boxes of mix. Read More

I cut this recipe down from 12 servings to 4; however I ended up using 1 1/2 cooked chicken breasts and 3/4 of a 28 oz. package of soup vegetables. I really think the veggies would have been very skimpy had I followed the recipe. I tasted the vegetable mixture before putting it in the dish to bake. It had no flavor so I added garlic salt basil oregano parsley and poultry seasoning - just a few shakes of each. That really helped this recipe. The pros of this dish - I liked using the cornstarch and milk as opposed to a cream of soup and I enjoyed the different flavor of the cornbread topping as opposed to a pie crust. It was easy to put together. Read More

Great basic recipe for a pot pie and so easy! I did make my own changes (used biscuit dough and added lots of extra spices) but I love how simple this is and that the recipe doesn't use canned soup. Will make again. Read More

Yummy! I added fresh thyme (dried would work too) & since I had some light cream around & nothing to use it for I swapped out some of the milk in the filling with light cream. Definitely upped the calories & fat but an easy way to up the richness. Read More

Yummy! I took other reviewers suggestions and made a couple quick easy changes. I added 3 boulion cubes to the water and I used bisquick (it was all I had). I also added some onion powder and garlic powder and it was a hit here. Also super easy which is always a plus with a family to feed! Read More

The recipe was very simple and quite tasty. My only issue with it was too much cornbread. The recipe asks for 3 boxes of cornbread or muffin mix. The next time I make it I'll probably use 1 or 2 boxes at the most.. Read More

I added a bit of cayenne to spice it up and unrolled a pre made croissant dough on the the top. Will definitely make again! Read More
