Hot and creamy - homemade turkey pot pie is the ultimate comfort food! Make this hearty and healthy version from your holiday leftovers.

1/4 cup butter or turkey or chicken fat
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 1/4 cups chicken or turkey stock
1/2 cup milk
2 cups diced, cooked turkey
1 package frozen peas and carrots or other vegetable - fresh or frozen

Heat the butter over low heat until melted. Blend in flour, onion, salt, and pepper. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is smooth and bubbly; remove from heat.
Stir in broth and milk; heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir one minute. Stir in turkey and vegetables.
Pour mixture into a pastry-lined pie pan or casserole dish. Top with crust.
