With its golden brown crust and scrumptious filling, these comforting potpies will warm you down to your toes. Because it makes two, you can eat one now and freeze the other for later. They bake and cut beautifully. —Laurie Jensen, Cadillac, Michigan

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 11, 2014

"Have to agree that there wasn't enough sauce. I used Wondra instead of regular flour and added one more cup of broth. It turned out perfect!"

MY REVIEW

"This makes the best pot pies I've ever tasted."

MY REVIEW

"My husband loves pot pie and he said this is his favorite of any he has had. This recipe is easy to make and we all love it."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 25, 2013

"This didn't have enough sauce for me. When I had all of the ingredients in the saucepan, I thought it was a bit dry and during the baking it got drier as the vegetables soaked up the little liquid that was there. Next time I will make for sauce or add gravy. Also, I think adding 1/2 tsp of sage or poultry seasoning or Bell's seasoning would have been good."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 25, 2013

"After all the wonderful reviews, I was a bit disappointed in this recipe. For me, it was dry. I felt it needed more sauce. When you have all the ingredients in the pan, if it doesn't look like it has enough sauce for you, correct it before you put the crust on and bake it. It will only get drier as the potatoes and other vegetables absorb some of the liquid. Or you could serve it with leftover turkey gravy. Either way, if I make this again, I will modify it so it has a little more sauce. Also, I think it could use some sage or poultry seasoning."
