Family Size Turkey Dinner Pie                     Single Serve Turkey Dinner Pie 

Turkey Dinner Pie FAQ

What is it? The turkey dinner pie is a very large, family-sized version of our best-selling menu item at Pie Cloud. It is a giant savory pie that features a pie crust made out of our rosemary-and-sage stuffing; it’s filled with fresh roast turkey, gravy and vegetables; and, it’s crowned with dollops of mashed potatoes. It comes with a side of our famous cranberry relish, in separate container. Please note that over the years other Calgary bakeries have copied the name of this product due to its success, but other offerings are typically only a simple turkey pot pie that does not feature a stuffing crust and mashed potato topping and would not taste like traditional Thanksgiving dinner.

 

Is it economical? Yes.  One 10” turkey dinner pie comfortably feeds 6 adults, or 4 very hungry adults. Price is $49.95 per pie (less than what many a decent-sized turkey alone can cost!) It is very easy to cut and serve, akin to regular pie, as the mashed potato quenelles on top of the pie create 6 natural portions.

 

Won’t my family and friends think a turkey dinner pie is less satisfying than a traditional dinner? No. While it is unconventional to have everything in one pan, you really don’t need to cook all day to dine on all the flavors that a delicious, traditional turkey dinner entails. Many of our guests from previous Thanksgivings who purchased this item have gone out of their way to contact us post-holiday and tell us how the turkey dinner pie was better than — or easily equivalent to — the food they would have typically prepared at tremendous time and expense. For many families this item is now a tradition they look forward to all year.

 

Do I need to heat it? The turkey dinner pie you receive from us is freshly made for you shortly before pick-up and is fully cooked, and then cooled. With a quick re-heating  it can be eaten shortly after pick-up, or, refrigerated and then re-heated later (this takes about 45 minutes in a 350 degree oven or until hot in the middle.) If you're headed to a dinner right away, we may also be able to heat the pie for you (depending upon oven availability) so that it may be consumed as soon as you arrive at your destination. It’s equally tasty, whether you eat it as soon as you get it or whether you re-heat it and serve it hours or a day or two later. It may also be wrapped and frozen, then thawed and heated at a later date.  We suggest thawing our frozen, fully cooked pies for a day in the refrigerator, prior to heating for most even warming of product.

 

Can I really skip all the fuss of Thanksgiving cooking? Yes. It’s not cheating to have us do the work for you; and, you don’t need to feel guilty. Many of our guests who purchased the turkey dinner pie last Thanksgiving ordered it again for Christmas. 

 

What other savory items or side dishes do you suggest for a holiday meal? You’re likely the best person to predict how much food you need or know exactly how your family and friends like to eat. The Turkey Dinner Pie is an entire meal unto itself (it includes your stuffing, turkey, gravy, vegetables and mashed potatoes all in one pan, with a side of separately packaged cranberry relish.) But, many people are interested in additional accompanying dishes.  Some of our customers have holiday guests who like to eat an extra-large amount of a particular component of a turkey dinner, and thus choose to purchase additional sides of those items. You may purchase extra gravy, mashed potatoes or cranberry relish, if desired.  If you’d like to add more items to your Thanksgiving meal for extra variety and color, please consult our list of Side Dishes for further ideas. Please note that a 12 oz side dish is suitable for a couple of hungry people. You may need two or more of a specific side for family service of items like extra mashed potatoes, roasted vegetables, etc.

 

What if one of my dinner guests eats gluten-free or vegetarian? Special dietary restrictions can be readily accommodated. Although we do not modify our family-sized Turkey Dinner Pie, you can purchase an additional, single-serving pot pie that easily complies with most specialized eating plans. Gluten-free diners tend to enjoy a Chicken Pot Pie that is made with a shredded potato crust, while vegetarian and vegan guests most frequently dine upon our Roasted Root Vegetable Pie that features flaky pastry and creamy sauce, making it hearty (like a chicken pot pie), but completely meat and dairy-free.  We can also do a single-sized version of our Turkey Dinner Pie in gluten-free format; it sits upon a shredded potato bottom crust instead of our signature stuffing crust. Our Boston Chowder Pie also features a gluten-free potato crust and is highly popular.  This year we are also offering a Sage and Thyme Roast Vegetable Pastry Parcel, suitable for vegetarian guests.
