Chrissy's Savory Pot Pie Recipe with Crescent Roll Top.
Pot pie is a meal in a single dish. No side dishes needed! Pot Pie dates back to the roman empire! Served at royal banquets, and indulged by many over the years!
So I look at this dish as a recipe for kings and queens.
My little spin on this recipe is adding a yummy crescent roll top!
There are endless ways to make this dish, including, making a pot pie filling and placing it between a buttermilk biscuit as a sandwich, or using pie crust on top and bottom, stuffing it into biscuit dough in a muffin pan for little personal pies, or making individual ramekins or small pie plates to give each person their own pie!
Here is one way I make them in my kitchen. How you plate it and serve it is up to you!
2 cups chopped raw meat (your choice; Chicken, Turkey, Beef, Hamburger, or Pork)
1 cup chopped carrots
1 cup chopped celery
2 cups sliced mushrooms
1 cup frozen peas
1 cup or 1 can of corn
2 cups chopped red or gold potatoes
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 regular sized 10.5 oz. can of cream of chicken or mushroom soup
1/2 tablespoon of black pepper
Salt to taste
1 Tablespoon of butter or olive oil
1 pie crust
1 can of crescent rolls
Place your pie crust in your chosen dish or dishes. If making one large or small individual ones, this will produce one large or 4 small pies.
In a large deep skillet add your garlic, onions, butter/ olive oil & meat and brown your meat. Add vegetables, potatoes and sweat down until potatoes are almost all the way cooked. Here are a few pics to see different styles. You can omit any veggies from the recipe your family or friends wouldn't like.
place meat, potatoes, veggies, seasoning, cream soup, garlic, salt and pepper with 1/2 cup of water cook 4-6 hours. Then skip to filling pie section of directions.
Once your potatoes are almost cooked add your cream soup. Cook on medium heat until your cream soup starts bubbling.
Filling Pie Crust:
Next place your pie mixture into your pie crust. Bake at 425 for 12-14 minutes until your pie crust is golden brown around the edges.
While this is in the oven on wax paper place your crescent dough out and press with your hands together gently to make it one piece. Cut to size for your pie or pies. You may add cheese to the top before you add your top crescent crust if you choose to.
place the crescent roll sheet over the top of your pie and fold over the ends or edges. Cut slits in the top to let air escape.
Place pie/s in oven at the temperature and use the directions that are specified on the crescent roll container to finish cooking.
Once your top is golden brown remove from the oven and let rest 10-15 min to set up.
Serve and indulge as the Romans did!
Please Note: Weaving a lattice top crust should be done prior to placing over the pie since it is hot when you add the top. Simply place your lattice top on wax paper or parchment paper and have it already assembled and ready to flip onto the top, otherwise your crescent roll top will fall apart being so delicate and when it gets close to the heat it will fall apart!
