"Easy recipe for a warm winter meal. This recipe makes enough to fill a 10-inch cast iron pan just like my Grandma used to do." — LALAADAMS

This recipe is delicious! Best pot pie I have ever tasted! To make things a little easier I used store bought refridgerated pie crust. Will be making this often for my family!
This was very easy to make. It was my first time making the dish. My famiy and I thought it was YUM- YUMMY!. It was even better the second day. (Not much was left from the night before.) I followed the recipe as listed. The only thing I would do differently is use frozen veggies. I usually don't use can veggies and would like to compare the taste. Also, I let the crust chilled for about 45 minutes.
I made this dish the day after Thanksgiving. Instead of making the pie crust, I used pre-made pie crust (two 9 inch Pillsbury ready made pie crust). I also added a half can of corn, frozen veggies (carrots, broccoli, cauliflower) and added some poultry season to the mix to add flavor. My family loved it! Made some Sweet Yellow Corn Bread Muffins (Pioneer brand) and they complimented the meal nicely.
Oh Yum! used a prepackaged pie crust instead. Sauteed onion, garlic, thyme, oregano, basil, s&p in butter and EVOO, poured in the balance of her ingredients & a can of mushroom and wahlah....perfectly seasoned and delicious!
Made this for dinner tonite and it was a big hit! Instead of making my own crusts, I used frozen Marie Callendar's deep dish pie crusts. One for the bottom and the other for the top crust. The filling was enough to make 2 pies, so I froze the extra to use for another meal. I didn't have any cream of potato soup, but I had cream of celery and used that instead. My husband, who is very picky and doesn't like casserole type dishes went crazy. He said "this is even better than Marie Callendar's" (his favorite for pot pie). We will be making this again!
Made this using leftover turkey chopped up, 1 small package of frozen mixed vegetables, 1 can of cream of chicken,1 can of cream of potato soup, 1/2 onion chopped, and 1 can of water. I sauteed the onion and turkey in 1 tablespoon of olive oil for about 2 minutes just till onions were clear. Then, I added the soups, and mixed in 1/2 can of water from each can (for a total of 1 can). I simmered the turkey mixture for about 10 minutes till it started bubbling. While that simmered, I let the 2 pie crusts from the box come to room temperature, then laid one crust in a pie baking dish. Filled it with the turkey mixture until just below the edge, and covered with the 2nd crust. Crimped the edges together, slit in the middle and baked in oven at 375 degrees for 45 minutes. Better than store bought pot pie! I will definitely make this again!
Great recipe, thanks! My husband and 2 boys loved it (and that's saying something these days).
I made my own crusts with this recipe. They were VERY light and flaky, and wonderfully thick. My only changes to the crust recipe... substituted a couple tbsp butter when I ran out of shortening AND substituted 1 tbsp white vinegar for part of the chilled water (my grandma's trick for flaky crust). I also baked it at 450F for the first 10-15 minutes to brown the crust. Perfect!
The filling was tasty and very easy with frozen veggies and canned soup. Thanks for a yummy farewell to the Christmas bird!
I used ready to fill pie crust and frozen veggies. EXCELLENT recipe! My husband a picky eater loved it, THANK YOU Grandma!
