See the Turkey in the middle???
How about the Turkey and Hearts...
This is a recipe mostly taken/inspired from the TV show, The Chew, way back over a year ago. Carla Hall made this and I have been tweaking the recipe for a year now.
It is very similar to a deconstructed pot pie.
And the Lemon seasoning adds something special!
The cut out pastries are very simply, I grabbed a couple of cookie cutters, a sheet of Puff Pastry and (at 350 degrees) in 16 minutes, I had the makings of an actual deconstructed Pot Pie!
I did select the Turkey as this is a terrific idea for a Thanksgiving Turkey leftover dish. As well as a rotisserie chicken recipe. One of my now famous "52 Ways to Use a Rotisserie Chicken" recipes. Sure the recipe calls for chicken, but no reason you can't just sub some turkey leftovers.
