Can You Reheat Turkey Pot Pie

So, first of all, can you reheat turkey pot pie? Yes! Of course, you can!

The biggest concern is ensuring your pie crust stays crispy. It will tend to get mushy and soft in many appliances, so you’ll have to be mindful no matter which appliance you use.

Next, you want to be sure you get your fillings fully heated through. The worst part of reheating food is having the outside hot and the inside cold.

Finally, you want to be sure you take the right approach with whatever appliance you use.

Because the truth is you can reheat pretty much any food that has been refrigerated or frozen as long as you nail this part down. And different foods call for different appliances and different methods.

For example, foods that have been breaded or fried are often best reheated in the air fryer or in the oven. Foods that have been baked or grilled are often best reheated back in the oven or back on the grill.

For turkey pot pie, you’re probably going to be best off reheating your dish in the oven.

But let’s work out way through each appliance just to be sure.
