Make Something Monday ... Pillsbury Ground Beef Pot Pie

Make Something Monday
I had to break into my reserve of already wrote up recipes, this weekend has been nuts and with Easter I was a little less on time! Hope you enjoy this one!

Looking for a yummy easy meal for the family, this is it! Another one I made a while back when my favorite little book came, that has become a favorite of the house. Plus check it out I can sneak in carrots and no one knows!! So no veggie eaters here, and sadly that includes me sometimes too!


1box Pillsbury® refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
1lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
1teaspoon garlic salt
1/2teaspoon pepper
3tablespoons cornstarch
3cups frozen southern-style diced hash brown potatoes (from 32-oz bag), thawed
3medium carrots, sliced (1 1/2 cups)
1jar (12 oz) beef gravy
1.Heat oven to 450°F. Make pie crusts as directed on box for Two-Crust Pie, using 9-inch glass pie plate. In 12-inch skillet, cook beef, onion, garlic salt and pepper over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain.
2.Stir cornstarch into beef mixture until mixed. Stir in potatoes, carrots and gravy. Cook 5 to 6 minutes over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until hot. Spoon into crust-lined pie plate. Top with second crust; seal edge and flute. Cut slits in several places in top crust; cover edge of crust with foil.
3.Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

  2. That IS simple and sounds delicious!

    I like veggies, but I'm not always too good about making sure we have enough, so sneaking them in the main course is definitely a bonus!

  4. Another yummy recipe for me to try while hubby is gone!

  5. You like your pot pies, don't you? I think I need to visit for a bit to get my fill of casserole-y type meals! The carrots with the beef are perfect.

  6. oh that is yummy for sure my poser friend..
    I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend..

  7. That looks really good, cause you know me... NO PEAS!! I know you don't like them either, so I love when you make a pot pie with no peas... and this one has beef, so Bill will really like it. Well done all around! :-)
