Low Carb Turkey Pot Pie Recipe with Almond Flour

How to make low carb turkey pot pie

Take your leftover turkey and chop it up. While I used a casserole dish, the quantities would work well if you wanted to go the traditional route and bake it in a pie tin. Place your turkey in the baking vessel of your choice and move on to the veggies.

Dice up your onion, celery, and garlic, then cook them in a skillet until the onion begins to brown. Toss those in the casserole dish as well. Then using the same skillet, whisk turkey bone broth and xantham gum together over medium heat until it forms a gravy. Pour this mixture over the turkey and veggies, then stir it all. Be sure to season with salt and pepper to taste at this point before you layer on the batter for the biscuit topping.

If you didn’t DIY turkey bone broth from the carcass, you could use chicken stock as a replacement instead. But next time you make a turkey dinner, remember to save the bones so you can make my kick-ass turkey bone broth recipe! It’s gooooood.

If you prefer to forgo the biscuit topping, you can bake the mixture as is. This omission will save you some carbs and calories, and honestly, it will still be delicious. If you have a nut allergy or just cutting back on calories, this is a great option. Low Carb Keto Turkey Pot Pie Recipe - Gluten Free

How to make a low carb biscuit crust

The low carb biscuit crust is the perfect topping for this low carb pot pie. When my guy tasted this, he immediately placed the crust as being “just like cornbread.” It doesn’t have the signature cornbread flavor, but the texture is light, crumbly and buttery just the same. Got my wheels spinning to develop a keto cornbread recipe, but that’s for another day.

It’s also incredibly simple, so don’t worry if you aren’t super comfortable with low carb baking just yet.

With an electric mixer, combine almond flour with room temperature butter. If the butter isn’t warm enough, it will be tough to mix, even with an electronic gadget. If needed, pop it into the microwave for a few seconds to soften it up… but don’t melt it!

Next blend in the baking powder (PSA for all the non-bakers out there: it is not the same thing as baking soda!) and salt. Crack an egg in and mix it all until the batter is uniform. Spread the batter over the top of the turkey mixture in the casserole dish and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes.

Enjoy your low carb turkey pot pie recipe!

    • I’ve been using ghee as a butter substitute for most of my dairy-free recipes, but it doesn’t seem to be a good substitution for baking. I’ve seen a lot of people use margarine in dairy-free and vegan baking, but it’s not an ingredient I’ve ever used as I try to avoid certain oils and soy. Earth Balance seems to be the most popular brand and they have a soy free version; although I’ve never tried it personally, they get really good reviews if the ingredients work with your diet. https://earthbalancenatural.com/product/soy-free-sticks/

      Hope that helps!

  • can we get an idea of a serving. I’ve looked at a few if your recipes and they look good. I love having the nutritional info but no good if I don’t know how many servings or a size of serving.

    • For all of the recipes on the site, the nutritional information is totaled for all ingredients and divided by the number of servings. For example, since this recipe is 6 servings, one serving would be 1/6th of the entire recipe. Cut it into 6 equal pieces and one piece is your serving. Hope that helps!

    I totally changed the filling (which rocked) but just wanted to let you know the topping is absolutely spectacular. I’ve been doing LCHF/keto for 6 months and while I have enjoyed many ‘good’ baked goods, there were none I would serve to non-keto friends. This, I would serve to my besties!!! I am thinking this as a topping for goulash and to make a berry cobbler come summer. Fabulous!

  • This may be my new favorite recipe site. My husband is diabetic, and I’m constantly looking for ways to reduce carbs without feeling deprived of our favorites. Your recipes are perfect! I’ve only been here for a few minutes, and I’ve already found several recipes we’re going to try. First up… Fathead Pizza Rolls. And then we’re definitely trying this one – Low Carb Turkey Pot Pie. Thanks for your work!

  • I used a low carb baking mix instead of the almond flour. The crust was gritty and we couldn’t finish it. When I think of pot pie, I prefer more gravy with the ingredients. This recipe didn’t have that. I understand we are doing keto here but it just didn’t do the trick for me. Thanks for sharing your recipes. I’ll try another!
