Barbecued Pork Potpie Recipe

I cook a roast the day before—or use leftover pork—when I prepare this hearty casserole. A lattice topping made a refrigerated corn bread twists gives it a lovely look. —Joan East of Leawood, Kansas

"I would agree that this is not a simple recipe. I doubled the recipe as it was for a potluck. I stuck the pork roasts in a crock pot the day before to have the cooked meat for this recipe. The only change I made was use PIllsbury's crescent creations dough to create a "pot pie" top. The people I made it for didn't leave a single scoop for us to take home, so I would say it was well received. When doubling, we had about 2.5-3 cups of extra sauce which we saved and froze for our personal use later. It was delicious."

"My family wasn't impressed with this potpie, and the recipe is not simple. I won't be making it again."
