  • Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons oil in the skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms; cook, stirring often, until browned and tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, sage and thyme; cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Return the onion mixture to the pan. Whisk broth and cornstarch in a measuring cup or bowl until smooth; add to the pan. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally. Stir in turkey, peas, sour cream, pepper and salt. Remove from heat.

  • Transfer the mixture to the prepared pie pan. Invert crust and place on top of the turkey mixture; slice a couple of slits in the center of the crust. Bake until golden and bubbly, about 45 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
