New England Salmon Pie Recipe

New England Salmon Pie Recipe

My mom always made salmon pie on Christmas Eve. Now I bake this dish for the holidays and other get-togethers during the year. It takes little time to prepare, and with a salad on the side, it makes a satisfying meal. -Jeanne Uttley, Salem, New Hampshire
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 40 min. YIELD:6-8 servings

"When I make a salmon pie I use the red salmon. I do not add the onions and etc. I just mash my potatoes and add butter and some milk. I also add parsley and pepper. Serve it warm with butter and ketchup."

"This recipe is terrible. I had leftover salmon and wanted to use it. The mixture of salmon, onions, potatoes and milk was just sort of blah with an oniony salmon undertaste. I usually like Taste of Homes recipes and maybe someone's family likes this, but mine was unanimous and I ended up throwing most of it in the garbage."

"Just like I make except I save the drained can liquor and brush it on the crust instead of an egg wash,,,I also make an egg sauce and add frozen peas and a little of the liquor to that...Too good to waste. Good pie!"
