Vegetable Beef Potpie

This old-fashioned main dish is tried-and-true comfort food. The golden crust and savory filling make such a pretty presentation. I'm a retired grandmother with 300 cookbooks and computer files filled with recipes.

    My kids loved this recipe, especially the top crust. While cooking this, they kept asking me when it was going to be done because it smelled so good. They were glad they waited, because they didn't know I was putting the crust on top, which made it even better. Thank you so much for this recipe. I will be making this often for my kids.
