I've made this recipe twice. My boyfriend loves this pot pie! I've made the recipe with asiago cheese and also with just cheddar. Both tasted great. I added extra vegetables like carrots, mushrooms, and corn. Last time I cut up turkey cutlets, but I have also bough a thick slice of turkey breast from the deli counter to shred up.
Maybe we've just become spoiled by all the more flavorful and spicier CL recipes, but this one is not really worth the time and effort. Just not enough return for all the work. Following previous reviews I added shredded carrot for color, plus mushrooms and even a tsp. of poultry seasoning. I'm not usually a big fan of canned gravy but it's lower in fat and calories than the flour/chicken broth thickening in this recipe so I used that instead for extra flavor, which worked well. Also used fresh parmesam in the garlic mashed potatoes and topped it all with more parm, shredded cheddar and paprika for more color. Not horrible or inedible; it's great comfort food, but too much like gluey turkey soup... Won't do this again soon.
