Then, add mozzarella and cheddar cheese over top. Bake at 500 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Drizzle gravy over top before serving.

Mini-Turkey Pot Pies Sign

Press rounds of prepared pie crust into muffin tins and bake at 425 degrees for 8 or 10 minutes. Then, fill will leftover turkey, gravy, potatoes, or any other leftover thanksgiving side. Warm the pies in the oven for a few minutes, then serve.
