About This Recipe

Halloween is in the air! All of a sudden the leaves have turned and the temperature has plummeted. Every year fall sneaks up on me. This pot pie recipe for Mummy Pot Pie is a fun twist on the classic recipe just for this holiday. It uses strips of puff pastry to make it look like a mummy. Slices of olive form the eyes.

Of course you have to destroy the mummy to serve this pot pie. So let everyone admire it before you dig in.

This recipe is fun and delicious. I like to use frozen meatballs in my pot pies, just because it’s easier and much safer from a food safety perspective. You can of course, make your own meatballs if you prefer.

Your kids will love this recipe! In fact, get them to help make the recipe. They can cut the puff pastry into strips, and even arrange them on the casserole to make the “mummy.” Just  make sure they wash their hands after they work with these ingredients, as they should every time they are in the kitchen.

Tips for the best Mummy Pot Pie:

  • The filling must be hot when the pastry is added, because cold filling would soak into the pastry before it has time to set in the oven.
  • And let the little pies cool before you eat them. The pastry not only seals in the flavor, it seals in the heat!
  • The meatballs must be fully cooked before they go into the casserole, so if you make your own instead of buying them, cook them first.

Why this recipe works:

  • Puff pastry is the best choice for this recipe, although you can use your favorite pie crust recipe. The puff pastry is crisp and flaky and really complements the homey and delicious and comforting filling.
  • You can use any of your favorite veggies in this easy recipe.

Steps

1
Done

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Prepare 6 6-cup baking ramekins by spraying them with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.

2
Done

Thaw the puff pastry according to package instructions. You can usually let it sit on the counter while you make the rest of the recipe.

3
Done

Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Cook the onions and garlic for 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the mushrooms and baby carrots and cook for another 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until the vegetables are just tender.

4
Done

Add the soup and the beef broth to the pan. Stir well to combine and bring to a simmer. Then add the meatballs. Simmer for 8 to 10 minutes or until the meatballs are hot.

5
Done

Spoon the meatball mixture into the ramekins.

6
Done

Now unroll the puff pastry and cut into 1/2" wide strips. Cut each strip so it's as long as the ramekins are wide, with a little extra.

7
Done

Place the strips across the ramekins, sealing them to the edges.

8
Done

Bake the pot pies for 20 to 30 minutes or until the pastry is browned.

9
Done

Top with the slices olives and serve. Be careful - the filling is really hot. Have your kids cut into the pastry and let the pot pies cool a bit before they take a bite.
