What’s cooking? Well, the leftovers from yesterday’s dinner of course!
We made two Pot Pies – one to cook and eat that night and one to freeze. Each Pot Pie utilized leftover meat – so, total cost was less than $3.00 each!
Mega Meal – Easy Pot Pie
To make ONE Pot Pie:
1 cup meat of your choice (chicken, turkey or beef)
1 bag thawed & drained frozen mixed veggies
1 can Cream of Chicken soup (or make your own….see below) OR a combination of leftover gravy and Cream of Chicken soup (super yummy!)
Combine all ingredients and pour into a 2 quart casserole dish….next choose and prepare the crust.
For a Bisquick crust:
Combine the following until smooth:
1 cup Bisquick mix
1/2 cup milk
Pour over casserole. Bake at 400 F for about 30 minutes. The crust should be golden brown.
For a traditional crust:
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup butter
2 tablespoons cold water
Combine flour and salt. Cut in butter into flour/salt mixture until it is crumbly. Sprinkle mixture with water and continue until it holds together. Shape dough into a ball. On lightly floured surface, roll to 1/8 inch thickness. Once this is finished, place on top of filled casserole dish. Also bake at 400 F, but, will need a longer baking time depending on your oven.
