  • 1 deep-dish 9-inch pie shell
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 1 cup diced, cooked turkey
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pimento

Preheat an empty cookie sheet in a 375-degree oven. Add pie shell to the hot cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes. (This will make it crisp.) Cook celery in butter until tender; stir in turkey and pimento. Beat together eggs, milk, mayonnaise, mustard, and salt. Stir in turkey mixture. Pour into pie shell. Sprinkle with cheese and paprika. Bake at 375 degrees for 25 to 35 minutes, until knife inserted near center comes out clean.
