Turkey Pot Pie With Sweet Potato Topping

A little early for Thanksgiving in the US and late in Canada, but here is what I made with leftover turkey breast.  Yes, I piped the sweet potato topping on it and it's obvious why I'm not a professional cake decorator.  But it was fun so I tried it.  

Turkey Pot Pie With Sweet Potato Topping

1 cup chicken broth
1 cup milk
2 tsp cornstarch
1 cup potatoes, diced
1/2 cup carrots, diced
1/4 cup peas
1/2 cup corn
1 tbsp celery flakes
1 cup turkey, diced

salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

2 sweet potatoes, cooked and mashed with butter and dark brown sugar

2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp dark brown sugar

Whisk together cold chicken broth, milk and cornstarch in a large saucepan.  Turn on medium heat and when it starts to thicken, add in vegetables and turkey.  Allow to thicken to your desired consistency and pour into the baked pie crust.  Top with sweet potatoes and bake at 325° for 30 minutes.
