Puff Pastry Turkey Pot Pie Without Peas

Creamy, warm, and so comforting, this Puff Pastry Turkey Pot Pie is a fantastic Fall and Winter family dinner. The turkey filling is creamy and flavorful with fresh sage and thyme along with garlic and scallions. The vegetables can be really whatever you like, but my version has carrots, celery, and zucchini. Yes, zucchini replaces the peas in this recipe! Then for the pie crust, flaky puff pastry is baked right on top for a golden brown, buttery, flaky finish.   Buy frozen puff pastry to save time!

Baking Steps

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F degrees
  2. Remove the puff pastry from the fridge (NOTE, DO NOT TAKE IT OUT EARLY AS IT GETS TOO STICKY TO MANAGE WHEN ROOM TEMP). If needed, on a lightly floured surface, gently roll out the puff pastry to a slightly larger size than your casserole dish. Gently lay the puff pastry over the casserole dish so that the pastry stretches over each side of the dish. Press the edges to seal in the pie and fold any excess dough back over the edge so it is not hanging down. Cut 3-4 slits into the top of the puff pastry. Beat the egg in a small bowl and then lightly brush it on the puff pastry.

  3. Bake on a sheet pan that is larger to catch any pie filling that may sneak out for 25 minutes at 400 F degrees, then lower the heat to 350 and bake for another 30-35 minutes or until the topping is golden brown and crispy.
