What others are saying about this recipe

  1. Betty says:

    I’m gonna try this, but pot pies have a crust on top and bottom
    I wish you’d fix this , and add that part that’s what makes a real pot pie

  2. Shirley Blackett says:

    I love this idea with no bottom crust. They can be soggy. But my problem is I want to serve individual pot pies so need to figure out how many. Any suggestions?

  3. Theda Hallman says:

    The recipe looks so good I am going to try it

  4. Stacey says:

    I have been making this recipe for years, its a favorite of my family. I like that there is not too much crust, the filling is amazing. I add dried cranberries and will add 1-2 fresh apples as well.
