This is old-fashioned, from scratch, comfort food. This has been a family favorite for years. I like to take this to other families when they are in need of a meal. It's always a winner. I like making it with leftover turkey, too! I often add some cooked diced potatoes.

Wonderful. I always add my own touches so this is what I did. A trick I learned years ago...if you are making a "wet" pie like a custard (pumpkin, etc.), brush the bottom crust with some egg white to seal it. Put it in the pan and brush it. Let it set a bit and then put your ingredients in. I added some fresh thyme and rosemary, sauteed mushrooms and pre-cooked litte potato cubes along with the veggies called for (pre-cooked). I also added some white wine and dry mustard. Brushed the top with an egg wash. Fantastic. A keeper!

I was skeptical about the reason between so many 5-star ratings - the recipe seems way to simple! But simple can be good, and this was great. It was easy to make, had easy ingredients, and was rich and tasty. I added a little poultry seasoning to mine, and made a biscuit topping since I only had one pie crust. I can't wait to try this again and experiment with different vegetables and seasonings.
