Wild Turkey Pot Pie

Pot Pie is perhaps one of the most traditional recipes that probably already exists in most of our cook books. But it probably doesn’t call for wild turkey. Just like chicken, but organic from the field, taken by you. This is a great way to use wild turkey without frying it and without worrying about the toughness of wild turkey breasts ruining the meal because it’s incorporated in a thick, seasoned gravy with vegetables, all held together with a pie crust. A classic recipe with a story that is hard to displease.
