Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • cup flour
  • ½ teaspoon House Seasoning Blend
  • 3 sprigs thyme leaves separated from stem
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • cup half and half
  • 20 oz mixed vegetables thawed
  • 2 cups turkey shredded
  • 2 pie crusts
  • 1 egg beaten

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 400°.
  • Melt butter in skillet on medium high.
  • Add in your onions. Mix and cook for about five minutes to soften the onions. Once they become translucent, add in your flour.
  • Mix in your seasoning, thyme, and salt and pepper. Continue to mix until everything is incorporated with your flour. It should look thick.
  • Alternate pouring in a small amount of your half-and-half, and chicken broth. Continue to do this until your broth and half-and-half is gone.

  • Beat your egg in a small separate bowl. With a brush, brush your egg mixture over the remaining crust to create a seal. Place the other crust on top and pinch together the sides of your pot pie.
  • Using a sharp knife cut lines in the top of your pie crust to vent. Brush more egg on top of the crust on the side as well as the center of the cross.
  • Place your pie in the oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the crust is lightly brown.
