Pot Pie Soup

Homemade creamy pot pie soup is an easy recipe that is tasty with any savory protein filling like chicken, turkey, beef, or a vegetarian option. This is comfort food in a bowl that is a wonderful weeknight meal or hearty lunch. Pot pie soup is also a great way to enjoy leftovers in a fresh and delicious way.  From scratch cooking sure beats any frozen pot pie or any you can get to-go like KFC or Marie Callendar’s.

Pot Pie Recipe Ingredients & Options

The protein and main ingredient options are many for this versatile recipe.  Also, the topping ingredients are optional but fun to add to the pot pie soup. Swap out any of the following to personalize this homemade pot pie soup recipe:

  • Pot Pie Protein Options –  chicken, turkey, beef, ham, venison, lamb, cod, shrimp, salmon, or lobster
  • Pot Pie Vegetarian Options – broccoli, mushrooms, cauliflower, tofu, beans, potatoes, or any combination
  • Pot Pie Broth Options – match your broth to your protein. Homemade is best like making your own bone broth with my recipe for HOMEMADE BONE BROTH but if you have store-bought or bouillon cubes that is ok to for chicken, beef, vegetable, or seafood stock/broth.
  • Pot Pie Topping Options – fresh-baked biscuit, saltine or oyster crackers, pre-baked pie crust cut-outs, or pre-baked puff pastry squares or circles

How to Make Homemade Pot Pie Soup

For this recipe as seen below, I am using chicken broth and leftover Thanksgiving turkey.   As mentioned above and in the recipe card near the end of this post, you can swap out some of the regular ingredients easily.

Begin by sauteing some of the ingredients. Heat 1 TB butter in a large pot on medium heat. Next, add onion, celery, carrots, and garlic, and cook until onions are translucent about 8 minutes. Season with thyme, sage, cayenne, salt, and pepper. Then stir in an additional 3 TB of butter and melt.

Once the butter is melted, add the flour and stir until the flour combines with the butter and vegetables and browns.  This will take about 1 minute so the flour does cook a bit and won’t taste like raw flour.

Next, slowly add the stock and the heavy cream, stir to combine.  Turn up to medium-high heat so it comes to a slow boil. Stir often so it combines and begins to thicken. Once it comes to a boil, turn down to low.

At this point, it is ready to add in the frozen vegetables and leftover turkey meat (or other protein or vegetable choices). Stir to combine.
