Tasty Tuesday Turkey...

My Christmas story with Changeling Press is titled Alien's Stole the Frozen Turkey...
This recipe is so good aliens would definitely want to steal this!

2 cups frozen peas and carrots

2 cups frozen green beans

1 cup frozen corn

2/3 cup butter

2/3 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 3/4 cups chicken broth

1 1/3 cups milk

4 cups cubed cooked turkey meat - light and dark meat mixed

4 (9 inch) unbaked pie crusts (the ones that unroll from the package work best)

2 throw away pie tins or 8x8 pans

Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

1.      Place the peas and carrots, corn and green beans, into a saucepan; cover with water, bring to a boil, and simmer over medium-low heat about 5 minutes. Drain the vegetables in a colander set in the sink, and set aside.

2.      Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in 2/3 cup of flour, salt, black pepper; slowly whisk in the chicken broth and milk until the mixture comes to a simmer and thickens. Remove from heat; stir the cooked vegetables and turkey meat into the filling until well combined.

3.      Fit 2 pie crusts into the bottom of the throw away pans. Spoon half the filling into each pie crust, then top each pie with another crust. Pinch and roll the top and bottom crusts together at the edge of each pie to seal, and cut several small slits into the top of the pies with a sharp knife to release steam.

4.      Bake one in the preheated oven until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly, 30 to 35 minutes. If the crust is browning too quickly, cover the pies with aluminum foil after about 15 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes before serving.

5.      When the other pie is cool cover it with aluminum foil and put it in the freezer.  This will keep up to a month.  Take it out of the freezer and back it frozen for 1hr at 400 degrees.  The nice part is clean up is a breeze and you have something yummy on a night you feel lazy.
