If you’re reading this post after your Thanksgiving day meal, I hope you’re feeling just as comfortable as you did yesterday and not overly or uncomfortably full. Because that feeling kind of sucks. Actually, it majorly sucks. Feeling overly full is one of my least favorite feelings. That and excessive sweating. I HATE sweating. How am I so damn sweaty all the time?

PaleOMG Thanksgiving Leftovers: Cornbread Turkey Pot Pies

If you did keep yourself in check over the food holiday, hopefully you have lots of leftovers so you don’t have to cook much the next couple days after working so damn hard in the kitchen for one meal. But with holiday food leftovers, I can get sick of the same ole’ plate meal after meal. So I made a spin on leftovers to keep things feeling new and exciting at meal time. So here’s the thing with this meal – make it your own! Do you have leftover green bean casserole? Add that! Do you have leftover whipped sweet potatoes? Add that! Add whatever leftover you have and make it your own special turkey pot pie! I don’t think it can really fail. You may be able to prove me wrong, but all Thanksgiving food always taste delicious together so I think you’re safe!

    Hey Juli! I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. Made your Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Butternut Squash and it was delish! Question on this recipe — do you think I could get away with using Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1 to 1 Baking Flour instead of the flour you suggested?

  3. Melissa Washington says:

    I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! We made your Hasselback Butternut Squash and it was delicious! Everyone wants the recipe. Thank you for taking the time to create such wonderful recipes that will allow me to still enjoy family dinners as I slowly embark on the paleo path! I can’t wait to try this recipe with all of my leftover turkey!!

    I just had Thanksgiving dinner a day late at somebody else’s house cuz’ their daughter had to work on the holiday itself and they wanted her to be able to come. Anyway, watching how much chaos there was in the kitchen both before and after it was all served reminded me of how lucky I am to not have to deal with it. I was sent home with a bag full of containers of leftovers, though. So far, a little extra carbo loading seems to have been good for me – I am relaxing now after I finished destroying my record time for a running route that I like to go on. Most of it was vegetables, anyway, although I did have to sample a bit of all of the pies. Speaking of pies, these look adorable and I shall have to make them. I did get a lot of exercise yesterday, so I guess it would not make much of a difference unless I ate like a pig every day from now until January.

  5. CT says:

    Looks like a great recipe! Will try with some of our leftovers. One question, tho. It says Cornbread Turkey Pot Pies, and CornBread Crust, but I don’t see that any cornbread is listed in the ingredients?

    1. juli says:

      it says ‘for the cornbread crust’ in the ingredients. i don’t use real cornbread because that’s not paleo.

  6. Colleen says:

    Hi Juli! Any ideas what type of flour I can use instead of the almond flour to make this nut free?

    1. juli says:

      not for this particular recipe. i haven’t tried it any other way other than the paleo mix

  7. Christina says:

    I made these for dinner and let me say, this is one of the top 5 things I have ever made for dinner. They are filling and hearty- great comfort food with a taste of sweetness in the crust. Thank so much for this recipe. I will definitely be making it again. I made a special trip to Bed Bath and Beyond for the ramekins and I’m not sorry I did.

    1. juli says:

      awesome!! glad to hear it Christina!! i’m definitely craving this recipe now that it’s so cold out!

  8. Kate says:

    This is my first time for making Pot Pie from scratch!! I used chicken instead of turkey — it’s October — but I gotta tell ya — this is fabulous and so easy to make! Who knew!!?? Thanks, again, Juli! Another idea for using those Thanksgiving leftovers. And there will probably be a lot since we still aren’t socializing!!! What a crap-storm of a year! You’re keepin’ me sane, Girl!

      awesome!! so happy to hear it!!
