My Dh just loves any kind of pot pie, so thought I'd try this little different version. It was really good, easy, and filling. I served this with beer bread and a crisp garden salad. I took this from our state daily paper over the holidays. If you like mushrooms, I think you will like this easy recipe. Thanks for trying this.

This was good and very cheesy! I made the crust as instructed but it seemed a little dry so i added some water to soften it up a bit. The crust came out, but it was still a bit crumbly. I will assume this was my own error and I will try again another time. I did all of the other ingredients as suggested and it came out wonderfully. I love mushrooms and cheese. I served this with some hamburger steaks and it made a wonderful compliment to them. Thanks for the easy recipe, I will be using again. :)
