Fall has definitely taken hold over these past few weeks. The days are shorter and it’s dark not only when I get up but also when I come home. I’m craving comfort food but often that means dishes that require long, slow cook times and when you get home from work on a long day, that’s the last thing anyone feels like doing, right? For this month’s Kraft Canada #whatscooking assignment, I challenged myself to find a comfort food recipe that I could make in under an hour and was delighted to find this pot pie. I’ve changed it up a little and, of course, minified them to make individual serves and was very happy with the results. For some reason, anything with pastry seems so fancy on a weeknight (I cheated and used store-bought this time) and the individual serves make them seem more special too.
I like a pot pie with a substantial filling (i.e. not too soupy or watery) and this fits the bill perfectly.
Verdict? This is a wonderful weeknight dinner that is totally worth the time it takes to prepare (20ish minutes). While it’s baking in the oven you can be cleaning the kitchen, helping your kids with their homework, catching up on their day, or simply enjoying a glass of wine and relaxing. Tip: These re-heat pretty well the next day too!
