Stuffing Crust Turkey Potpie

Here's a wonderful, stick-to-the-ribs dish that slices well since the filling is thicker than that of traditional potpies. Prebaking the crust makes it crunchy.—Tamara Furda, Naperville, Illinois

  • Makes
    6 servings


  • 2 cups cooked cornbread stuffing
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons chicken broth
  • 2 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup turkey gravy
  • 2 cups cubed cooked turkey
  • 1 cup frozen broccoli florets, thawed

  • In a small bowl, combine potatoes and cream; spread over turkey mixture. Drizzle with butter. If desired, sprinkle with onions. Bake until heated through and lightly browned, 20-25 minutes.

    Good. Not hard, just takes time. Great way to use up leftovers.

    I have been making this for about five years, and it is definitely my husband's favorite meal. He looks forward to this more than he looks forward to Thanksgiving dinner! I switch out the broccoli for peas, corn and carrots. It's even great days later, reheated (again!) from the fridge. Such a fabulous recipe!

    I made this last year after Thanksgiving. A very versatile recipe and a great way to use up the leftovers!

    This is the perfect recipe for Thanksgiving leftovers! We loved it. I used the vegetables that I had left from dinner (corn and green beans) and it was so yummy. I've already shared this recipe with friends and relatives.

    I made this last night for my husband. We had all the ingredients leftover from thanksgiving. My sister even makes a broccoli salad with fresh broccoli, red onion, sunflower seeds and dried cranberries so I threw one cup of the salad in the mix instead of just one cup of frozen broccoli. I also added some dried sage to the cheese mixture and had to swap out swiss and use provolone. It turned out pretty darn good. The cranberries added a nice twist and really made it feel like an all in one thanksgiving dinner casserole.

    We loved this! MY husband wants it so he can take the leftovers to work again, because they made a big deal over it. I also substituted vegetables with what I had on hand. We make a sausage dressing and I used that and it was delicious.

    I made this with leftover green bean casserole instead of broccoli and used cheddar cheese since that was what I had on hand. An excellent way to use up those Thanksgiving dinner leftovers!

    Excellent!!! Everyone raved about it. The flavors blend so well in this dish. I used fresh broccoli (I cooked them) but next time I would add a little more than a cup. You could add carrots, green beans etc, if broccoli is not your favorite. This is definitely a keeper.

    How long can you store this in the refrigerator before baking it?

    badgerdoglover, 1/4 cup is about 1 oz. of cream cheese.
