Dodge County Extension 1976 homemade all the way old recipe. She says this dish freezes and reheats well. I think you might be able to make a couple of pies out of this recipe even though she says one.

A wonderful meat pie for days when you want hot creamy comfort food. I made this recipe almost to the letter with the difference being that I used olive oil instead of butter to cook the vegetable in. I would suggest using a large casserole pan. Yum... serve with a nice garden salad for nice crunchy contrast.
