- 1 duck leg, cooked and shredded
- 1 cup diced carrots
- 1 cup peas
- 1 cup diced celery
- 2 tablespoons duck fat
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 cup chicken or vegetable broth
- 1 cup milk
- Salt and pepper to taste
1. Preheat your oven to 400°F
2. In a large skillet, heat the duck fat over medium heat. Add the diced carrots, peas, and celery, and sauté until they start to soften, about 5 minutes.
3. Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables and stir well to coat. Cook for an additional 2 minutes to cook off the raw flour taste.
4. Slowly add the chicken or vegetable broth, stirring constantly to avoid lumps. Once the broth is fully incorporated, add the milk and continue stirring until the mixture thickens, about 5 minutes.
5. Stir in the shredded duck leg and season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat.
6. Roll out the duck fat pastry dough and line the bottom of a pie dish with it. Pour the duck and vegetable mixture into the dish.
7. Cover the pie with the remaining pastry dough, crimping the edges to seal. Cut a few slits in the top to allow steam to escape.
8. Place the potpie in the preheated oven and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
9. Remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving. Garnish with fresh herbs if desired.

The combination of tender shredded duck, crisp vegetables, and rich, flaky pastry is simply irresistible. So, gather your loved ones and prepare to indulge in this ultimate comfort food
