This was good, but the crust didn't really turn out as expected. It was quite thick and hard. Next time I'll use my own crust recipe.
I used ground Turkey with this recipe and my family loved it. The first time I made it there was a lil too much gravy for my family. Otherwise great healthy meal and easy.
Another note I didn't mention- I cheat and use a premade crust. I find it much easier at this point when I don't have much time and it also isn't as "bulky" of a crust.
This is a great recipe- easy and so delicious. My 3yr. old eats every bite. And a tip- I double the veggies it calls for and sometimes I switch the beef/broth for chicken and chicken stock. So, so good for winterblues!
The crust was good but a bit thicker than expected. Needed twice as much gravy or sauce so we'll increase that on the next go-round. Overall good comfort food.
