Pot pie- Oh my! Does anyone else crave more comfort and convenience in their cooking once the cooler months set in? There is something extra special about arriving home to a delicious and hearty pot pie after a long day of work or knowing you can throw one together in just a few steps. These pies have to be one of the ultimate comfort foods. Pair with some roasted root vegetables or a simple salad and dinner is served! Prep is quick and easy, and they make for some amazing leftovers!

What you will need:

  • 1.5 lbs lean ground beef
  • 1 small cooking onion; chopped finely
  • 1 garlic clove; minced
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 can condensed potato soup
  • ½ cup old cheddar cheese; shredded
  • ½ tsp. dried thyme
  • 2 pre-rolled puff pastry sheets
  • ¼ tsp. milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste

 

Directions:

Prep Time: 25 minutes  ◊  Cook Time: 30 minutes

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a medium sized frying pan, on medium heat add a touch of olive oil, onions and garlic, then saute until they turn a deep shade of brown.
  3. In a large frying pan, on medium heat, cook ground beef until only slightly pink. Drain.
  4. Reduce heat, add sauteed onion and garlic mixture, peas, condensed soup, cheese, thyme, salt and pepper to beef. Mix together with a spatula. Simmer until heated through. Approximately 2-3 minutes.
  5. Line your pie plate with one of the puff pastry sheets. Trim off any excess pastry. Spoon prepared filling into waiting pastry lined pie plate; making sure it is evenly distributed.
  6. Lay second puff pastry over pie; tucking any excess pastry under itself. Pinch or press around the edge of the pie to seal. Brush the top of your pie with milk.
  7. Bake for 22-24 minutes until pastry is nicely golden brown.
  8. Let cool for 10-20 minutes before serving.
