This is a great comfort food for vegetarians. You can make your own pie crust if you have the time. I got the general recipe from, but tweaked it quite a bit to suit our tastes. Feel free to use any kinds of vegetables or seasonings you prefer.

  3. Add the onions,garlic and vegetables, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender, about 8 minutes.
  4. Stir in the potatoes and enough milk to almost cover the potatoes.

We added a little more salt and used grands flakey biscuits as the crust and this was a delicious family friendly meal!

I baked a regular pillsbury crust for this (which did leave me some extra filling which I cooked in little ramekins). I did not use the butter but instead used a little spray of olive oil. My corn and broccoli were frozen but everything else was fresh. This produced a comforting pot pie on a very cold night. We found it a tad bland but some salt and pepper on top enhanced that. I loved the addition of the eggs in this. Thanks!
