Growing up I used to love to buy those individual pot pies in the freezer section. Then I grew up a little more and would buy the large deep dish ones from Costco. Oh! I remember them being so good!!! And now? Well, I have graduated into adulthood & cooking, and bake up my own pot pies. I can’t even believe that I use to eat those frozen ones! I love this recipe because you can really put whatever you want in it. This is a veggie pot pie but you can add some already cooked chicken to it if you want.
Delicious Rating: The sauce is the deal breaker. It is creamy, smooth, flavorful, and thick. No matter what vegetables you add in here it will taste delicious. The crust is so flaky and crisp against the soft but firm vegetables. I made my own crusts using my time tested pie crust recipe, the same I use for sweet pies, just minus the sugar. But you can buy some already made pie crust to make this recipe that much more easy for you. This is the perfect recipe for a chilly night or when you just want some comfort food!

I cut the carrots in slices or big chunks. I love a nice cooked carrot in pot pies!
I did make my own pie crusts for this recipe but you can totally use store bought ones if you are short on time.
The egg yolk wash gives the crust a more even browning that looks great once baked.
See what I mean?!
