so I halved the recipe for a single pie. I also used broccoli instead of peas, carrots, and green beans, because of preference. I skipped the celery salt because I didn't have it, and substituted heavy cream for the milk to make the mixture thicker. It was done in 35 minutes, and everyone else thought it was great. I felt it was bland, but that could have been because I was mentally comparing it to the cheesy Marie Calender's pot pies. Next time I'd add carrots as well as more onions and mushrooms, and I'd try it with chicken instead of turkey.
UPDATE: I made it again to use up a rotisserie chicken, with a bunch of mods. Used 2c frozen carrot/broccoli/cauliflower mix for the veggies, skipped the celery, did 1/2 c. onions, added 5 sliced mushrooms, and kept the heavy whipping cream instead of milk (though I would try milk in the future). I realized after I made the mixture that I only had 1 pie crust, so I used that on the bottom and a can of Grands biscuits stretched out for the top. If you use biscuits on the top, you don't need a bottom crust - too much bread! I preferred the crust, though. mushrooms were good add, I'll keep using those, and I like this mix of veggies.
