Used leftover Chicken and Ham from Christmas- was easy and delicious! I did saute my fresh mushrooms and the chopped ham a little, just to get some extra caramelization, but everything else was exactly as directed. A lovely pie!

This is a fantastic recipe...and a sneaky way to get some greens into my husband! The in-laws came into town the next day and we fought over the last piece! Very, very, good, thanks for posting this recipe.

Delicious and savory pie. I omitted the mushrooms. I also found that the pie has to sit about 20 minutes at least to 'firm-up' and be more slice-able. Growing, hungry son had two portions and I'm going to sneak a small 2nd piece myself now from the fridge. I wonder if it could be made 1-crust style, like quiche?
