You Will Need
Large Non-Stick Pan
Medium Oven-Safe Casserole Dish
Before You Cook
Prepare the Puff Pastry
Keep puff pastry chilled until use for best results. Stack puff pastry squares and, using a rolling pin, can, or bottle, roll into a square roughly 8" x 8". Using a small knife, cut out a jack-o'-lantern shape from puff pastry. Feel free to skip making the jack-o'-lantern and move on to the next step.
Bake the Puff Pastry
Place jack-o'-lantern puff pastry on prepared baking sheet and bake on top rack until golden brown, 12-16 minutes. While jack-o'-lantern cooks, start preparing ingredients.
Prepare the Ingredients
Quarter mushrooms. Peel, trim, and cut carrots into ⅓" dice. Trim ends off celery and cut into ¼" dice. Peel and mince shallot. Stem and mince parsley. Combine 2 cups water, chicken demi-glace, and cornstarch in a medium mixing bowl.
Cook the Mushrooms
Heat a large non-stick pan over high heat. Add 1 Tbsp. olive oil, mushrooms, and ¼ tsp. salt to hot pan and cook until mushrooms have browned and released much of their moisture, 5-7 minutes.
Cook The Filling
Add carrots, celery, shallot, and turkey to pan and cook until vegetables begin to soften and no pink remains in turkey, 6-8 minutes. Stir cornstarch mixture and add to pan. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook until thickened, 4-6 minutes. Stir in parsley and season to taste with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Plate the Dish
Pour turkey-vegetable mixture into a medium casserole dish and place puff pastry on top.
