On a cold winter night, I love to have this creamy, filling comfort food while sitting around the fire laughing and talking with Scott and the kids. This casual food represents coziness and tranquility.

3 lbs. wild turkey
3 tablespoons olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
5 cups Chicken Stock
2 tablespoons salt
1 1/2 sticks butter, plus extra for seasoning ramekin dishes
2 cups Vidalia onions (2 onions), chopped
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup heavy cream
2 cups medium carrots (4 carrots), diced, blanched for 2 minutes
1 10 oz. package frozen peas (2 cups)
1/2 cup fresh parsley, minced

- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Slice turkey breast into 1-inch thick slices. Pound turkey to 1/4 inch thickness. Salt and pepper turkey on both sides. In a super hot cast iron skillet pour olive oil and place pounded turkey and brown about 2 minutes per side. Set aside.
- In a large saucepan, melt butter and saute onions over medium high heat for 10 minutes or until translucent. Add flour and cook on low-heat for 2 minutes stirring constantly. Add chicken stock slowly to the sauce continuing to stir. Simmer over low-heat for about 1 minute or until thick. Add salt, pepper, and heavy cream. Add carrots, peas, and parsley. Mix well.
- Cut cooked turkey into bite-sized pieces and mix into pot pie mixture.
- Butter 8 to 10 ramekin dishes. Pour pot pie filling into dishes. Top with homemade or Pillsbury Ready-Made Crust by cutting rounds in the rolled out crust a little larger than the ramekin and placing them on top of the mixture. Place ramekins in oven for 25 minutes or until crust is brown.
