What is a pot pie?

A pot pie is a traditional savory dish that consists of a baked pastry crust filled with a flavorful mixture of meat, and vegetables. The crust is often made from a buttery pastry dough that becomes golden and flaky during baking, creating a delicious contrast to the hearty filling. 

While pot pies can be made with various fillings, such as chicken, turkey, or seafood, the ground beef pot pie variation offers a satisfying and meaty flavor that appeals to many palates. It’s a comforting and versatile dish that is perfect for a cozy family dinner or a gathering with friends.
