Leftover Turkey and Veggie loaded pies – Baby Finger Foods
It’s the day after Christmas and you have all this beautiful bird with no pie to bake it into, right? Well, don’t fret because…tada! Say hello to a delicious leftover turkey recipe that will make you want to cook an enormous holiday meal for 20 people every week (or not). Your whole family will absolutely love these baby led weaning dinner pies, and they happily suit adults or adorable tot-friendly sized finger food.
This is one of my favorite baby led weaning dinners! It freezes beautifully to give you pies for miles, and you can pack as many vegetables as possible into a one-dish serving. Peas and corn are my go-to option—rich in fiber, protein, and heaps of vitamins and minerals that are beneficial to everything from baby’s brain to eyesight—but you can use any of the veggies you have leftover from turkey day! This is such a versatile recipe.
The pastry crust is super flaky and tasty, as well, and very easy to make! Holiday meals are such a treat. Having an option to pack leftover turkey into a tasty, easy recipe that you can freeze for an after Christmas makes the hard work even more satisfying!
This recipe is part of my Christmas series for Dunnes Stores and I am making a huge effort this year to make Christmas as inexpensive as possible! Using up the leftovers is a brilliant way to reduce waste, save money and stock up for those busy days too. It is important to keep costs down at this time of the year and you won’t spend a packet on this recipe at all, plus all of the ingredients are readily available in your local Dunnes Stores.
