Comfort Food

on February 25, 2014

In the dead of winter I crave things like rich, hearty soups, stews, and one of my favorites–pot pie. The problem with pot pie is that I haven’t found a good commercial one that is really satisfying. and making one from scratch is a time-consuming process. Recently, though, I saw a suggestion on Pinterest that seemed like a good idea, so I tried it.


The pie was super simple to make and very yummy. Not only that, but I had one left over that was just as good the next day.

For the crust I used Grand’s Biscuits. I flattened them out and lined a ramekin with one. For the mixture, I used some pre-cooked and chopped chicken, a can of cream of chicken soup,  and a bag of mixed veggies. I seasoned mine with some dill because I was in a dill mood that afternoon, but you can use any seasonings you like. Fill the ramekin and cover with another flattened biscuit. I baked mine at 350 degrees until the top was nice and brown and the top biscuit was cooked all the way through.

The recipe made 4 pot pies. I made mine for dinner with my dad one evening so I sent one left over with him and had the other the next day for lunch.

What are your favorite comfort foods?

    Sounds totally delicious. Want to try this. Love comfort food like you, soups (this winter cheesy potato has been my fav), warm casseroles, and simple dishes.

  2. It was yummy, Carole! And the good thing is that it is so flexible. You can pretty much use anything you want in it!
