Ingredients

Makes 4 servings

  • 2 pre-frozen pie crusts, defrosted
  • olive oil
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 1 Tbs. curry
  • 1/2 tsp. curry or masala seasoning
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup leftover turkey, shredded
  • 1/2 cup leftover gravy (or chicken broth)
  • 1/3 cup leftover cranberry sauce (optional)

Thaw Out Crusts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Defrost pie crusts on the counter and set aside.

Prepare Pies

In a skillet, add shallot with a drizzle of olive oil and sauté until soft. Add spices and mix well. Add shredded turkey and mix thoroughly. Place pie crust on flour dusted surface and slightly roll out. Using a 4-6 inch ring mold, cut out circular pieces and set aside, brushing them with melted butter.

Bake
