Perfect Pie

When I was growing up, I remember being so excited when my mom would bake frozen Swanson pot pies. The creamy vegetable and meat filling was the perfect hearty meal, but the flaky and sweet pie crust almost made it double as a dessert. My taste buds have definitely grown up since then, and I prefer a more sophisticated pot pie (my favorite is one at a little French restaurant inside the Denver airport; it’s made with a variety of fall vegetables and Pernod, yum!). But even though I love the traditional flaky crust usually associated with the hearty pies, I recently stumbled across this impressive recipe made with a homemade potato bowl, and I can’t wait to give it a try!


  1. You had me at Swanson Pot Pies! I loved them also, and this recipe is so easy to personalize and make your own! I already do a quick and easy chicken pot pie for Hubby, but using the potoatoes is a nice touch, I plan on making this, since Fall is upon us. Thanks so much for sharing!

  2. I love pot pies too and Swanson makes the best frozen ones....I have tried them all too!

    This potato piped crust looks very difficult!
    Let us know how it turns out. I will be impressed no matter what!


  3. There's a French restaurant at DIA?? Do you happen to recall which terminal or airline you were flying? I'd love to visit before my flight home for Thanksgiving!! :)
