This was hit and miss with my family. Everyone loved that I used my homemade crust, so that was a win. It needed more herbs to flavor it more.
Gross. Threw it out. Dry. Awful Taste.
What can be substitued for the mushrooms? Any suggestions?
Not enough filling for 2 pies...I used all in one pie. Diced my potatoes very small, do not like shredded potatoes. Also used criminni mushrooms in pie.
5 STARS! My husband and I loved this recipe. I made a few changes. I used half pork & half beef. I also added some extra veggies (and even so my husbands only critic was it didn't have enough veggies in the pie). I also added some poultry seasoning & Oregano. Next time I'm going to add some garlic & maybe some red pepper flakes for a tiny kick.
I think you would bake from frozen just like a fruit pie, otherwise the crust may get soggy. Put it on the lowest rack in the oven and bake at 425 for 20 minutes, then reduce heat to 375 and move pie to middle of oven. Cook remaining time indicated, but keep an eye on it as the crust may brown quickly.
Have not tried this yet but sounds good. My question is do you completely thaw the frozen pie before baking, partially thaw or just bake while it is still frozen? Recipe does not indicate what to do.
I added some tomato jc. to the filling and subbed 2 cups frozen mixed veggies for celery & carrots. It's awesome having one waiting in the freezer for busy days! We've served it with the gravy from the recipe, but it's also great with ketchup or greek salad dressing on top :)
