This takes the best of a pot pie and becomes a cobbler. The rustic look of the topping ensures you don't have to worry about shaping a pie pastry. The vegetables can be changed if desired.

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in 1 tablespoon flour to create a paste. Slowly add in water, stirring to incorporate. Stir in 1/2 cup milk and garlic base until mixture begins to bubble. Add turkey, carrots, celery, and onion and heat until warm, about 5 minutes. Mix in oregano, thyme, parsley, salt, and pepper. Remove from the heat and set aside.

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray an 8x6-inch casserole dish with cooking spray.

  • Whisk together 1 cup flour, baking powder, and salt for cobbler topping in a bowl. Cut in 3 tablespoons butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Gradually stir in 1/2 cup milk until dough pulls away from the side of the bowl.

  • Pour turkey filling into the prepared casserole dish. Drop cobbler topping on top and sprinkle with Italian seasoning and garlic granules.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cobbler topping is golden brown, about 25 minutes.

This was such a hit! I followed the recipe other than making it with triple the sauce, (using chicken broth instead of water) and added about 2.5 cups frozen vegetables. It reminded my husband of one of his favourite appetizer at a local restaurant. Will definitely be adding this recipe to our favourites. Read More

I made a few minor adjustments in the seasoning but not enough to matter to the base recipe. Really cozy comfort food and a great way to use turkey leftovers. The light and fluffy cobbler dough got beautifully golden and crunchy on top. Read More

Considering I really didn t have anything but the turkey I improvised with a can of mixed veggies ( no Lima beans) a can of chicken gravy and mixed up something similar to drop biscuits with all the seasonings added to the mixture. Read More

It was easy to make & deliscious. I added leftover chicken broth instead of the water which I think added flavour. Read More

This was fantastic! I used broth instead of water and swapped the oregano and parsley for sage and rosemary (just my preference). I didn t have the garlic base so I just added a clove of garlic. I was a little unsure about only cooking the vegetables for a few minutes in the sauce so I sautéed them first. The biscuit topping really made this amazing! We had gravy and served it on top yum!

I've made this a few times, always with cooked chicken instead of the turkey and substituted rosemary for the thyme. Read More
