When Lisa S. was growing up in North Carolina, she and her cousins pitched in every Thanksgiving to make this generations-old recipe. "We would throw sticks up in the pecan trees in the backyard to knock down the pecans," says Lisa.
This recipe is a great way to show your child how to turn leftovers into a savory hot dish that's high on everyone's list of comfort foods: turkey potpie. THis one is made with plenty of broth to keep the meat and vegetables tender and moist.
Prepare this sausage-and-egg dish on Christmas Eve while the kids are setting out milk and cookies for Santa. Refrigerate it overnight, then pop it into the oven on Christmas morning for a quick and easy holiday breakfast.
Topped with mini biscuits instead of pastry crust and amply filled with a saucy mix of chicken and your family's favorite veggies, this potpie is sure to warm you up on a wintry evening. Just don't count on leftovers.
