This is a great idea, but the recipe is a little vague in explaining the execution, and I used only in the most loose way as a jumping off point. Per reading peoples reviews I decided to do three mini potpies and froze them before baking. I sauteed fresh carrots, celery, onions, mushrooms and garlic in olive oil with a little salt, pepper, oregano, basil and rosemary. I also added some canned peas after the veggies had began to soften. I diced my leftover turkey and then added to pan with a little bit of leftover turkey gravy. I added the bottom pie shells to the 5" pot pie tins then ladled in gravy at the bottom, then the veggie/meat mix next till almost full, then topped off with more gravy and then added the top layer of pie crust. The proportions of 2 cups veggies, two cups turkey and two cups gravy was the perfect amount for the three small pies. If you already have pre-made gravy you can totally ignore the part of the recipe about water and cornstarch. I used every last bit of my Thanksgiving leftovers and am thrilled not to have any waste. This will be the start of something I do every year.
