People tell me this pie is almost better than the original dinner! I fix turkey all year long, and I purposely make too much just so we can have this later on. It's a complete meal in itself. My sister and I took turns cooking when we were in high school...my husband and I have four grown sons...and I used to cook for pheasant hunters we took in. So I've had lots of practice!
