Keto Turkey Pot Pie or Keto Turkey Casserole

We have a LOT of food leftover – I’m sure many of you are in the same boat. We decided to do a traditional Thanksgiving with some modern updates, and today we’re making the most of leftovers with my keto turkey casserole or keto turkey pot pie, pumpkin bars and garlic roasted broccoli.

This low carb keto turkey casserole is a variation of my keto chicken pot pie recipe – with a few modifications to account for Thanksgiving leftovers! This has been a family tradition the day after Thanksgiving for decades. I’ll make the keto turkey casserole around noon and then we graze on that and any other leftovers throughout the day! I usually have an open house for friends on the day after Thanksgiving, but we’re playing by the rules for a socially distanced holiday, so we’ll just be eating all the leftovers and treats on our own!

I like to use extra finely milled almond flour – it removes the gritty texture and is most like traditional flour.

I hope you all had a beautiful, safe and happy Thanksgiving – I’d love to hear what was on your menus. And if you make this keto Thanksgiving leftovers recipe, please let me know how it turned out in the comments below!
