Joey Pot Pie

Disclaimer: No Joeys were harmed in the making of this pie. I call it Joey Pot Pie because Joey gave me the recipe for the puff pastry crust.

The filling is just a can of mixed veg, well drained, and a can of cream of chicken soup. I put the bottom crust into the little dishes and baked it until it was just barely turning brown. Then I put in the filling and put the top crust on, cutting slits in the top and brushing it with milk, and baked it again. 350F. About 20 minutes for the bottom and another 30 or so for the top.

I must have done something wrong because, when I cut it open, them birds did not begin to sing.

Not bad, though, for ol’ canned ingredients. The crust was BELICIOUS, though. Thank you, Joey!

There was some crust dough left over, so I divided it in two, rolled it out, slapped in some fresh blueberries and a sprinkle of sugar, folded it over, brushed it with milk and sprinkled it with sugar, and stuck it in the toaster oven with the pot pies.

These were done much sooner than the pot pies. Also delicious.

Blueberry hand pie

I put them in bowls so the bottoms wouldn’t get soggy, and in case we wanted to pour almond milk over them, but we just picked them up and ate them.

Oh, so good!

I’m posting at Fatal Foodies today about what I did with the leftover pot pie filling.

Don’t forget to tune in tomorrow and all month for daily stories. Yes, it’s STORY A DAY MAY!

    Well done! Delicious, resourceful, and not at all threatening to Joeys. I freakin love pot pies. They’re one of my very favorite things to eat 😛 And turnovers — never done blueberries, cause I’m the only who eats baked blueberries. (They’re odd, they know.)

    I’ve been a vegan for more than 5 years now. Would love to know if there’s some good source of vegan recipe which could be made using the Instant Pot. I currently own the Instant Pot Max. There are so many recipes around that I get confused with which one to make. I’d be glad if you could show some nice recipes, because I checked your blog post and we share a similar taste.

      Search this blog for Instant Pot and Vegan and you’ll probably find some. As for which one to make, just make whatever sounds good to you. If you actually have all the ingredients, so much the better. 😀
