There are many comfort foods I can think of right off the top of my head but nothing compares to a great leftover prime rib pot pie. The flaky crust, gravy, vegetables and meat that goes into that pie is outstanding.
The best part about a homemade pot pie is you can make it the way you like it. You can put any vegetables you like in it.
One thing are planning what vegetables to put in it if there are no leftovers. My family won't eat certain vegetables. What's great about a pot pie is you can hide them!
I love to hide peas in mine and have no problem with them. They've never figured it out when I put them in there. The pie is so delicious they never care! The family would prefer corn over peas or even green beans substituted.
I am sure many of you go through the same thing. Look at the recipe as a guide line.
I personally feel onion makes the pie too overpowering with onion flavors. If there is any leftover pot pie, that's all you taste is onion. Doesn't matter what I like, if you love onions put them in.
Quite a few vegetable go great in a pot pie. I love mushrooms and broccoli. That would be another pot pie I would make just for me. I have had that many times with leftover chicken or turkey it's so good!
Whenever I have a refrigerator full of leftovers I usually use them up in a pot pie. Most of the time the ingredients are leftovers from Holiday.
This one happened to be A New Years dinner. I had so much meat leftover, this was quite a treat. If you have leftover roast beef or even a pot roast, this is the recipe to make with leftovers. You won't be sorry!
If you have ever been a big fan of pot pie, you will never buy them again. Homemade is over the top comfort food. Nothing compares. It's honestly so easy to make. Even if you don't want to make everything from scratch go ahead and buy the pie crust.
You could also use canned or bottled gravy. I won't tell! The main thing is this is all natural no preservatives, you know exactly what's in it, and you can make it tailored to your taste!
When I first made a pot pie, I was so excited to see how fantastic it came out, that bubbly sauce, the browned pastry crust and what was inside was exactly what I like the best more meat less vegetables.
That's the beauty in making your own. If you don't want a ton of peas or carrots you can leave them out!
I love any kind of pot pie so if you're not looking for a Prime Rib or Beef pot pie, substitute chicken, turkey or whatever you prefer. You then just need to use the coordinating gravy and whatever vegetables you like.
I always use potatoes in mine but your can leave them out if you don't like potatoes and add more of what you love the most.
If you do happen to buy store bought pie crust, make sure you baste the top with melted butter so you can that delicious buttery golden brown crispy crust. It also will seal it nicely.
Almost every pot pie I ever make has three things, pea, carrots and potatoes with the meat.
I like to stay away from the overpowering flavors. During the winter months pot pies are a staple in my house.
Is this too big for two? Try making individual ones in cupcake tins! You can make a bunch of them and freeze them. Of course they freeze well, that's where we find pot pie in the supermarket, in the freezer section right? !
Hopefully I gave you lots of suggestions you can take advantage of by making one of this pot pies, whether it's semi homemade or from scratch you will love it!
Seriously drool worthy, I can eat this everyday in the cooler weather, it's the ultimate comfort food for sure! Awesome to have your meal cooked all in one dish!
