Cheesy Potato Pot Pie

"This is a great comfort food for vegetarians. You can make your own pie crust if you have the time. I got the general recipe from, but tweaked it quite a bit to suit our tastes. Feel free to use any kinds of vegetables or seasonings you prefer."

    We added a little more salt and used grands flakey biscuits as the crust and this was a delicious family friendly meal!

    I baked a regular pillsbury crust for this (which did leave me some extra filling which I cooked in little ramekins). I did not use the butter but instead used a little spray of olive oil. My corn and broccoli were frozen but everything else was fresh. This produced a comforting pot pie on a very cold night. We found it a tad bland but some salt and pepper on top enhanced that. I loved the addition of the eggs in this. Thanks!
