Recipe for November 27th: Turkey Mug Pot Pie
Here’s a fun way to use up some Thanksgiving leftovers – everyone in the family can make their own leftover pot pie in a mug! We used the recipe for an easy biscuit topping from BiggerBolderBaking.com to top off our mug pie! So, after some GPL kitchen testing, here is our adapted version:
adapted from the recipe at BiggerBolderBaking.com (for the topping, specifically). Feel free to mix it up with your own ingredients!
Biscuit Topping Ingredients
4 TBSP flour
½ tsp baking powder
⅛ tsp salt
½ TBSP butter, chopped into bits
3½ TBSP milk (any kind)
Pie Filling Ingredient Ideas (use what you have!)
Leftover veggies like corn or green beans (even if they are in casserole form!)
*You can use a mixture of 1 TBSP milk, 3 TBSP stock or broth, and 1½ tsp corn starch if you don’t have gravy
1 mug (15oz or bigger)
1 small bowl for mixing topping
A fork for mixing ingredients
1. Add the veggies, turkey, and gravy to your mug and mix it up! Make sure you leave room for the biscuit topping – about a third of your mug
2. Mix the dry ingredients for the topping in a small bowl and then use your fork to smash the butter pieces into it until it looks a little like breadcrumbs.
3. Add the milk to your bowl and mix until it is all incorporated into a batter.
4. Pour or scoop batter into top of mug. It will sink, but trust us – it fluffs up and rises when cooked!
5. Place your mug on a plate – it may overflow the mug a bit (ours did)
6. Microwave for about 2 minutes or until the biscuit topping is firm with no wet spots.**
7. Once fully cooked, give your food a few minutes to cool after you take it out of microwave – it comes out HOT!
** We tested this recipe in a 1000W microwave, and it took 2 minutes to cook completely. Yours might be different.
