Although it's fun to have Thanksgiving dinner 4 nights in a row, sometimes you want to mix it up with the leftovers. Enter stage left, my newest favorite: Black Friday Pie
I made this on Sunday night after we had leftovers from the previous nights' Thanksgiving with Friends. It was a huge hit with JEGs.
1 1/2 cups frozen peas and carrots (or leftovers from the day before work too)
5 tablespoons butter
5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 3/4 cups turkey or chicken broth
2/3 cup milk
2 1/2 to 3 cups diced cooked turkey or chicken
2 cans of Pillbury cresent rolls (NOT the cheapy Giant brand. I learned that the hard way).
Drain peas and carrots; set aside. Heat butter in 2-quart saucepan over low heat until melted. Stir in flour, onion, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture is bubbly; remove from heat then stir in broth and milk. Place back on heat; heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute. Stir in turkey and vegetables.
Accept praises for baking the most delish dinner ever. Act confused when people think it is a pot pie. It is obviously much better then that.
Always & Forever,
