Turkey Broccoli and Cheddar Pot Pie is a tasty way to use up holiday leftovers. Can be frozen for later if you're tired of turkey.

This week the bloggers of #SundaySupper are sharing ways to use your holiday leftovers. Our host for this week is Christie at A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures.

I normally don’t do a whole lot with our leftovers. Oh we eat them but it’s usually turkey sandwiches for two or three days after. This year I did actually makeover the leftovers.

I love pot pies and normally do a chicken one but I had quite a bit of turkey so I decided to make a turkey pot pie. However this is not your usual turkey pot pie, this has tender pieces of potatoes and broccoli in a cheddar sauce.

This is pretty easy to make and it is freezer friendly so on the day after your turkey dinner you can whip up one or two and stash them in the freezer for a night you want an easy meal.
