Reviews for Make-Ahead Turkey Potpie
"My kids and husband couldn't get enough. Between the three of them, they ate 2 whole pies! I barely got to taste it!! I will definitely make it again! :)"
"Made this according to the direction. Did not have 2% milk only skim. For topping I used a container of ten jr. Size biscuits. Prepared the dish in a le Creuset brassier and just put the biscuits on top. Baked at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Turned out great. I do agree it needs more liquid I just added more chicken stock till the consistency looked right."
"Amazing as a pie, and as topping for hot biscuits out of the oven!"
