Turkey a la King

Bread is the perfect anchor to any dish, especially when it’s topped with creamy turkey and veggies. It’s kinda like an open faced turkey pot pie, but better!

This is no exception with its crunchiness and creaminess. It’s a quick way of having all the flavors of a turkey pot pie but without all the time and hassle of making the pastry.

And even better, I finally used up all that leftover turkey that’s been sitting in the freezer since Christmas! Winning!
