This recipe brings back memories of dinner at Grandma's, when she disguised vegetables in warm, pot-pie. Try the Traeger twist by infusing robust smoke for a memorable, grown-up meal.


Butter2 Tbsp.
Onion, diced1 small to medium
Celery, diced1 stalk
Homemade Chicken or Turkey Gravy2 cups
Cream or Milk1/2 cup
Frozen Peas and Carrots, thawed1 1/2 cups
Dry Sherry (optional)2 tsp.
Pork & Poultry Shake1/2 tsp.
Dried Thyme Leaves1/4 tsp.
Cooked Skinless Chicken or Turkey Meat, diced into cubes3- 4 cups
Salt and Black Pepper, freshly groundto taste
Flour, for dusting the countertopas needed
Frozen Puff Pastry1 sheet
Egg, beaten with 1 Tbsp. Water1
Recommended Hardwood Pellets:Hickory


Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and celery and cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until the onion is translucent.

Stir in the gravy and cream and heat gently. Add the peas and carrots, sherry (if using), poultry seasoning, thyme leaves, and chicken or turkey meat and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. (Note: You might not need to add salt depending on how the gravy and meat were seasoned.)

Coat 4 individual serving casserole dishes or bowls with cooking spray. Divide the gravy and chicken mixture among them.

Unroll the puff pastry sheet on a lightly floured countertop. Let thaw slightly. Cut it into four equal pieces, each large enough to fit over the casserole dishes. Make several small slits in the center to let the steam escape. (You can trim the puff pastry lids to fit with a sharp knife if desired.)

Position on top of the pot pie filling, crimping any overhang. Brush lightly with the egg wash. Transfer the pot pies to a rimmed baking sheet lined with foil.

When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 400F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

Bake the pot pies for 30 minutes, or until the puff pastry is nicely browned and the filling is bubbling. Serve immediately.
