I am all about comfort food. I grew up at the time when frozen meals were just hitting the freezer section at the local grocery store. Yes, I'm old...Anywho, during the winter months, nothing warms my heart and takes me back to my youth like a freshly baked pot pie from the freezer. I'm all about a good flaky crust and that is why I love Marie Callender's Pot Pies the best! They are packed full of veggies and and the gravy is so yummy! Yep, they are ten times...no a hundred times better than the pot pies I grew up on.
I decided to grab a family size Marie Callender's pot pie the other day when I was shopping at Walmart. The pot pies can be found in the freezer section right by the other Marie Callender's meals. I figured that was easier to get a family size than trying to decide what flavors Mr. B & his mother might want. They got what I wanted LOL! I also grabbed some apples so that I could make my skillet brown sugar & cinnamon apples to go along as a side dish.
Baking the pot pie is as simple as preheating your oven, making sure to poke some holes in the top crust and placing on a baking sheet in the oven for 1 hour and 35 minutes.
While the pot pie is baking I made up the skillet brown sugar & cinnamon apples.
I peeled, cored and cut up 6 good sized apples. I then melted the butter in a heavy skillet, added the apples and then the cinnamon, brown sugar and some freshly grated nutmeg.
Then just cook until the apples are tender.
By this time, the pot pie is done and it's time for dinner!
Just look at that gravy just oozing out! Oh to the yum!
Tender vegetables, all white-meat chicken and gravy, all packed under a perfectly flaky and golden crust that's made from scratch!
Convenient, fast and the truest sense of homemade, enough to fool anyone! Now that's my idea of comfort food! What's yours?
