Leftover Turkey Pie

I made this like last week when there was all that leftover turkey. It will probably be useful for you at Christmas or if you're American and have thanksgiving some weird time in November.


1/4 cup onion
1/4 cup sliced cerery
4 tbsps butter
1/3 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper (How do you get the grinder to aim right at the little spoon?)
2 cups chicken broth (so like some boulion in some boiled water)
2/3 cup milk (they said half and half, but milk was what I had and it works)
4 cups left over turkey
1 tbsp chopped pimiento (That's some kind of pepper right? Anyway the internet said I could substitute allspice so I substituted all the spices I had. It's a wonder anything I make ends up tasting like anything)
1 tsp worcestershire (I suspect this does nothing)


2 cupd biscuix
2 tbs butter (again, they said shortening but my fridge had butter)
1/3 cup milk (they really mean milk this time)

1. Melt the butter in a skillet over Medium heat.
2. Add the veggies. (not the pimiento) Cook until tender. Stir!
3. Add flour, salt, pepper and stir.
4. cook until it is "smooth and bubbly"
5. add chicken broth. keep stirring!
6. add milk. stirring stirring. Until it is thick.
7. add all the other stuff, including the "pimiento" and the turkey, but not the topping ingredients (obviously).
8. when it boils, cook another 30 seconds
9. Put the filling into a smaller dish than the recipe calls for (11 1/2 x 7 1/2 is a bit big)
10 put that in the oven to stay warm while you make the topping.

11. put bisquix, butter and milk in a big bowl. Stir with fork and make dough.
12. Kneed it on a floured cutting board a bunch of times.
13. Make it flat to cover the dish you used for the filling. Then use it to cover the filling (duh)
14. Cut 4 slits in the top (this makes it look like a pie, and probably does something important too)
15. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. (I think I put it to 350, that sounds right, whatever it says on the bisquix box).
16. Eat it.
