Preparation Time


1 tablespoon plus additional parsley leaves for crust fresh Italian parsley chopped
1/4 cup green peas frozen
1 teaspoon fresh thyme chopped
1 1/2 cups turkey diced cooked
1 to 1 1/4 cups gravy
1/2 cup cooked vegetables diced leftover (optional)
1 cup (about 2 carrots) carrots thinly sliced peeled
1 cup onion chopped
6 ounces button mushrooms stems trimmed, caps cut in half then thickly sliced crosswise
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 1 teaspoon Egg White
1 9-inch purchased pie crust
Cranberry sauce

1. Melt 1 tablespoon unsalted butter with 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chopped onion and sauté until golden, 7 to 8 minutes. Add sliced mushrooms; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Sauté until browned and tender, about 4 minutes. Add sliced carrots; cover and cook until carrots soften slightly, about 2 minutes. Add leftover vegetables, if desired. Add diced turkey, gravy, and chopped fresh thyme. Bring filling mixture to boil; reduce heat to low and simmer to thicken if necessary. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Mix in peas and chopped parsley. Pour filling into 9-inch-diameter glass pie dish and refrigerate until cool, about 30 minutes.

2. Lightly brush rim (both top and underside) of filled pie dish with egg glaze. Place crust atop filling and fold edge of dough over edge of pie dish. Pinch dough rim to seal crust all around. Press down on top edge of crust with fork tines to seal decoratively. Chill 10 minutes.

3. Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly brush top of pie with glaze. Make three to four 1/4-inch slits in center of pie to allow steam to escape. Press some fresh parsley leaves onto crust. Bake pie until crust is golden and filling is bubbling, 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool 10 minutes. Serve with cranberry sauce and/or leftover mashed potatoes.
