What is a pot pie? A pot pie is a meat pie of some sort, it can be chicken, beef, seafood or pork – usually made with some type of pastry…or topped with biscuits.

How long is pot pie good for? Leftover pot pie can be refrigerated up to three days. If planning ahead, you can freeze the pot pie filling for many months to use when needed.

Do I need a crust or topping for pot pie? You’ll be missing out on the best part for many but you can omit the crust or biscuit topping if you prefer and serve the filling over mashed potatoes or rice. 

Who invented pot pies? The people of ancient Greek are credited by historians for the concept of a pot pie. They would cook meats in pastry which has elaborated into what we all know as a pot pie today.

I’ve made homemade Southern buttermilk biscuits to top my beef pot pie. If biscuit making is not one of your skills, no worries. You can use frozen biscuits or refrigerated canned biscuits if that fits your style better.

When baking the pot pie adjust the oven temperature and cooking time to suit whatever type of biscuits you’re working with.
