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 is a fun twist on the classic recipe. It uses strips of puff pastry to make it look like a mummy. Slices of olive form the eyes.

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. Your kids will love this recipe!

Why this recipe works:

  • Puff pastry is the best choice for this recipe, although you can use your favorite pie crust recipe.
  • 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.
  • You can use any of your favorite veggies in this easy recipe.
  • And let the little pies cool before you eat them. The pastry not only seals in the flavor, it seals in the heat!

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.
