What's a Pot Pie?

"Potpie....A crusted pie made with poultry or meat, and, usually chopped vegetables. The term, which first appeared in American print in 1785, probably refers to the deep pie pans or pots used to bake pies in, and it has remained primarily an Americanism. The most popular pot pies have been chicken, Beef, and pork. The first frozen pot pie was made with chicken in 1951 by the C. A. Swanson Company."
---Encyclopedia of American Food and Drink, John F. Mariani [Lebhar-Friedman:New York] 1999 (p. 254)

Lamme. Hi. This is a wonderful recipe, so quick and easy to prepare and healthy as well, We do like the Fluffy Crust idea, but looks a lot different to Flakey Pastry, and most of the veges in one packet that's even better.

Thank you for sharing it with us, It is going into my recipe book. :) :)
