The Pie Bird Farm Thanksgiving Dinner Pie is what Turkey Dinner dreams are made of...A stuffing crust, a creamy layer of turkey, gravy and veggies topped with whipped mashed potatoes. Comes fully cooked, frozen and ready to bake!
Layer 1 is the stuffing crust:
organic bread, onions, celery, grass fed cultured butter, spices, S&P
Layer 2: Local peas, corn, turkey and gravy
layer 3: all topped with whipped organic mashed potatoes with grass fed cultured butter and S&P
Long story long:
About 10 years ago, Eric and I began hosting Thanksgiving for his family, and then 2 weeks later Friendsgiving for my chosen family of lifelong friends. I started making this pie with a stuffing crust with leftovers and freezing them for quick thanksgiving meals later when that craving for turkey dinner would (often) strike. They were a huge hit, and now we are making all your thanksgiving dinner leftover dreams come true!
These pies are an ode to my mother and her family. Every year at Thanksgiving my mom would make the stuffing and turkey, my aunt would make the potatoes and over the years they started to teach me how to make our favorite meal. I was able to start making it for the family shortly before they both died within a year of each other in 2003/04. ( get a little sentimental about Thanksgiving because I lost both my parents, my aunt mary and my grandmother over the course of one year and this was our favorite day to spend together!).
Please note, this pie is made fresh and frozen immediately. It take approximately forever to reheat, but it's worth the wait. :)
