Pot Pies: Home Cooking Dish of the Month (January 2013)

L.Nightshade | Jan 1, 2013 05:44 AM

Welcome to the first Dish of the Month thread for 2013!

In January we will be cooking Pot Pies. We didn't have a voting thread this month, because the nominations were overwhelmingly in favor of pot pies. If you'd like to view the nomination thread, you can see it here:

If you'd like to view December's thread on Gratins, you can view it here:

I've loosely defined pot pies as a savory baked pie which contains some type of meat and vegetables, in a sauce or gravy, topped with a starchy crust. (Vegetarian versions are, of course, also welcome.) Some pot pies have crust only on top, some are baked with a top and bottom crust. Crusts can be short pastry, biscuit, potato, phyllo, etc.

As usual, you are invited to use published recipes, old favorites, or a recipe you've invented. Please describe your recipe, and your outcome. Photos are always encouraged. Please remember to paraphrase any recipes that are not your own; verbatim copying of recipes to the boards is a violation of the copyright of the original author. Posts with copied recipes will be removed.

I leave you to your January cooking with a quote from Craig Claiborne:
“There is nothing better on a cold wintry day than a properly made pot pie.”
