These petite pies with their hash brown crusts are so pretty that I like to serve them for special luncheons. Chock-full of meat and vegetables in a creamy sauce, they're a meal-in-one...and a great way to use up left-over chicken or turkey. —Helen Lamison Carnegie, Pennsylvania

"Delicious except too salty. Next time, I will omit the added salt."

"Family hit the second time I made these. I actually partially cook my hashbrowns in the microwave before shaping them in the ramekins. I also like to sprinkle shredded cheddar or colby cheese before baking. Just adds another depth of flavor."
