THE FILLING – This is a super way to use up leftover turkey. Just chop it into bite-sized pieces, add the veggies and soup. Easy peasy filling!
- Is the Turkey all gone? Replace it with shredded chicken or use ground turkey or chicken. Can’t find Pillsbury dough at the grocery store? Replace it with a pie crust or puff pastry, both will work wonderfully with this recipe.
- Use any leftover veggies in place of the frozen vegetables. Broccoli, corn, mushrooms, peas, and potatoes are all easy replacements.
- Cream of mushroom or cream of celery soup can both be used in place of the cream of chicken soup.
- Fresh herbs will make a flavorful addition or substitution to the poultry seasoning. Remember 1 teaspoon dried herbs is equivalent to about 1 tablespoon fresh herbs, so measure accordingly.
