What to do with all that leftover ham from the holidays? If you've never had a ham pot pie you're in for a treat! A flakey pie crust filled with a creamy ham and cheese filling. Takes about 30 minutes to prepare to go in the oven or it freezes well too!
- Double Pie Crust
- 2 Tbs. Butter
- 1/2 cup Chopped Onions
- 1 cup Small Diced Carrots
- 1/8 cup Flour
- 2 cups Chicken Broth
- 2 cups Small Cubed Potatoes
- 2 cups Chopped Up Cooked Ham
- 1 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- Prepare the pie crusts and line a 9 inch pie plate with the bottom crust. Set aside.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Melt the butter in a pot.
- Sauté' the carrots and onion just until the onions are translucent.
- Stir in the flour to make a paste.
- Stir the the chicken broth a little at a time, mixing until smooth after each addition until all the broth is incorporated.
- Add the potatoes and simmer until the potatoes are cooked through.
- Stir in the cheese and ham.
- Stir until the cheese is melted and blended in.
- Pour pot pie filling into the prepared pie crust.
- Top with a top crust and cut a few slits in the top for steam to escape from.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 25 minutes or until the crust in lightly browned.
- Cool for 15 minutes before serving.
- If you wanted to add some frozen peas, you could do so with step 8. I personally like peas, I do not however like having to pick out peas from my kids dinners. So I don't usually add them.
