    Brandess's Note:

    I call this recipe 'Illegal Pot Pie' because it is such a cheat recipe that it should be illegal. It came about the other night when I was hungry for ‘something’ and looked in the cabinet and saw a can of Campbell’s Chunky Turkey Pot Pie Soup. I then remembered that I had a pie crust in the refrigerator! I am a fan of double crusted pot pies, but you can certainly use the top crust only. You can also use any soup you would like as long as it a thick, chunky soup with some substance. OAMC friendly!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 18 ounces campbell's chunky turkey pot pie soup
    • 1 pillsbury ready made double crust pie crust
    • salt and pepper, to taste


    1. 1
      Carefully roll out the thawed pie crusts. For the bottom dough, cut them 1/2" larger than the ramekin, making sure you've cut enough to go across the bottom and up the sides yet still have that 1/2" overlay.
    2. 2
      Cut a circle of dough for the top using the top of the ramekin to cut the dough. Using a knife cut a small X in the center of the dough.
    3. 3
      Pour the soup in a bowl - salt and pepper to taste.
    4. 4
      Split the soup between the ramekins - filling to 1/4" of an inch from the rim.
    5. 5
      Place the round dough on top of the ramekin.
    6. 6
      Dip your fingertip in water and trace around the dough circle.
    7. 7
      Bring the excess dough up from the sides of the bottom crust and seal it down over the water ring on the dough circle. Using a fork or your fingers, crimp the dough to completely seal.
    8. 8
      Bake pies at 375 degrees for 20 minutes or until the crust is a puffed golden brown.

      Fantastic idea! I used Campbell's Beef and Vegetable soup, but I think I will try other soups as well. I used the "Pie Crust" here on Zaar. Thank you!

      What a great idea! I am also a fan of 2 crust pot pies. I made this as a single pie so the filling wasn't quite enough, next time I will make 2 smaller pies. A;so I prefer more gravy in my pie, so I will experiment with other soups! Thanks Brandess, for such a clever recipe.
