Helpful Tips and FAQs

Making the Low Carb Pie Crust

In this recipe, we use our Low Carb Rollable Pie crust. It can be made a day ahead and refrigerated until you are ready to use it. If making it ahead of time, take it out of the fridge for about 20 minutes before rolling it to allow it to warm up. Roll the crust out about an inch bigger than your baking dish, to allow for crimping the edge.

What is a roux?

In making this recipe, we start by making a roux. A roux is a mixture of flour and fat, usually coated on a vegetable, such as onions and is the thickening agent for our filling. Making sure that the onions and garlic are well coated with the flour will result in a smoother filling sauce without lumps.

Using a different-sized baking dish.

You can use whatever size of baking dish you like. You can divide the recipe into serving-sized dishes such as ramekins, which is an excellent method of portion control. Keep in mind that the baking time may change based on the size of your dishes. Shorter times for smaller dishes and longer for deeper dishes.

If you choose to use a standard 9-inch pie plate for this recipe, I recommend that you place a foil-lined baking sheet under it to catch any liquid that bubbles over during baking. (just in case)

Storage and freezing instructions.

Store leftover cooked diabetic turkey pot pie in the refrigerator for up to 4 days in an airtight container.

To freeze, the leftover turkey pie, place it in an airtight container and make sure that there is approximately 1 inch of airspace above the pie. Freeze for up to 1 month.

If freezing in the cast iron skillet after baking. Cover with aluminum foil tightly after completely cooling. To reheat after thawed, place the pan in the oven for about 20 minutes at 300 degrees F (150 degrees C), covered with aluminum foil, to prevent the crust from over-browning.

Substitutions.

Using different flour.

I use King Arthur Keto Wheat Flour in this recipe as it behaves and thickens like regular all-purpose flour. King Arthur Keto Wheat Flour replaces all-purpose flour on a 1-to-1 ratio. If substituting with another flour, keep in mind that the nutritional values will likely be changed. I get good results with Carbalose Flour as a substitution, as it also behaves like regular all-purpose flour. I find that using almond flour alters the texture and taste and I am not a fan.

Changing the vegetables

Use low-carb vegetables when substituting mixed vegetables or beans. Vegetables such as corn and carrots will increase the calories and carb content of this recipe. We do use mixed vegetables in this recipe, but it is not a large amount and it is spread out over 6 servings, so the carb impact is reduced.

Cooking without a top crust.

You can easily make this recipe without a top crust, it doesn’t look as nice but still tastes great. Make as directed without the crust and when baking, cover it with aluminum foil for half of the baking time. Remove the foil and finish baking, remove it from the oven when it is bubbling.

Using a different crust

If you prefer to use your favourite crust recipe for this pie, be advised that the nutritional values will be altered. Baking time may also vary depending on the type of crust you are using. One of the characteristics I like about this diabetic turkey pot pie is the flaky crust, but that is just my own personal preference. Feel free to make alterations of your choosing.

Can I use different meat?

You can easily substitute the turkey with chicken. Pheasant, goose, duck and partridge can also be used. Be mindful of the change in flavour as well as the fat content. Duck tends to be fattier meat than turkey and has a stronger flavour. Any meat that is in the poultry family can be used without changing the ingredient amounts.
