Capicola Potato and Broccoli Pie

Thursday, February 4, 2021
This is one of the easiest all in one breakfast brunch or dinner you will ever make in this tasty Capicola Potato Broccoli Pie.

Often we have leftover vegetables from a previous meal and use the leftovers like this steamed broccoli for a delicious addition to a savory pie like this one.

You can make your pie crust homemade with my recipe, or use a premade crust this is very adaptable.

This pie is a little spicy as the Italian capicola is a hot spicy rimmed ham.

We really love to change it up and add roasted peppers or artichoke hearts along with the same egg filling and cheeses, it's a great combination of flavors.

Just stroll through the different vegetables and meat suggestions and make your own combination of fillings for this pie.

You can serve this as an appetizer before a big meal or this quiche-like pie is just perfect when you want a lighter meal.

Scroll down to the recipe card for this easy recipe and change this up with whatever else you would like to add to your pie.

Perfect for Weeknight Easy Meals in a Hurry!

Using a few store-bought ingredients, you can get this savory pie on the table in no time.

I love changing this up and adding different ingredients to make a different pie every time.

My kids just love this pie and one of our other favorite combinations is loaded with crumbled cooked bacon, tomatoes, and fresh spinach leaves, it's like a BLT.

Get your creative juices going and invent a savory pie that your family will love.
