Servings: 6


  • 1 lb. butternut squash cut in 1/2″ pieces
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 8 oz. package frozen pearl onions
  • 1 8 oz. package frozen peas
  • 2-3 cups turkey cut in small pieces
  • 3 Tbsp. fresh sage finely chopped
  • 4 tblsp. butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cups cheese
  • 2 sheets Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry thawed (use 1 1/2 sheets for 9×13 pan)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. water


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Place the butternut squash on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and lightly salt and pepper. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until tender. Set aside.
  • Place the frozen peas and pearl onions in a microwave safe bowl. Cover with plastic wrap. Microwave for 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, melt 2 Tbsp. butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat add the onions, butternut squash, peas, turkey, and fresh sage. Cook until heated through; turn heat down to low.
  • To make the sauce, mix the flour in 1/2 cup of cold water. Whisk to remove any lumps.
  • In a medium pan, melt 2 Tbsp. butter, add the flour mixture, and chicken stock. Heat to boiling; add the 1/2 cup cream. Mix in the 2 cups (your favorite flavors) cheese. Boil and simmer for 5 minutes until slightly thickened. Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Spray a 9×13 pan with cooking spray. Fill with the turkey mixture. Pour the sauce over the chicken mixture.
  • Unfold the thawed puff pastry onto a lightly floured surface. Roll pastry to seal any cracks.
  • Top the dish with the puff pastry. Make slit marks with a knife on top of the pastry for ventilation. (There may be a small amount left over.)
  • Beat the egg and water together in a small bowl. Brush over the pastry.
  • Place the prepared potpie on a baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes.
  • Cover the pastry loosely with aluminum foil to prevent burning and cook for an additional 25 minutes.
  • Remove the foil and bake another 5-10 minutes, until crust is golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and allow the cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.
