This Smokies and Veggies Pot Pie is a tasty, comforting dish full of flavorful smokies and tender vegetables, all nested under a tender-crisp biscuit topping.
Disclosure: I have partnered with Grimm’s Fine Foods to host a giveaway and to donate Grimm’s Food products to Siloam Mission, Winnipeg. All opinions expressed are my own.
The hearty smokies shine in this simple pot pie recipe, together with the vegetables, you have an easy weeknight meal to fill your busy nights. Pot pies. I love the cozy and homey feel of a warm pot pie out of the oven. It never fails to impart that feeling of comfort with every bite.
In this recipe, I used biscuits in place of a traditional pie crust topping. And I love that the proportion of the tasty, meaty smokies and the biscuits are perfectly balanced. The biscuits serve as a perfect base for the creamy filling underneath.
I was so excited as I crafted this recipe because I am honored to collaborate in a good cause, that is, to enliven the spirit of giving and generosity around the community.
Grimm’s Fine Foods aims to always give back through active presence and participation in community events across Canada. And this is a perfect opportunity for me to explain to our kids, that while they often see an abundant spread of food on our table especially during the holidays, some people have very little on their plates.
For this blog, for my work and writing to be a part of a great cause is humbling and it gives my craft a deeper meaning. To get the spirit of generosity going, Grimm’s Fine Foods is giving away an awesome product package to a lucky reader, and also a donation of their specialty meats to a humble charity here in our city: Siloam Mission.
Siloam Mission is a non-profit organization that provides free meals, clothing, shelters, counseling and many other services to the homeless here in our city. You guys, I am always excited to write a blog post but writing this one is different-level exciting!
Smokies and Veggies Pot Pie: The Process
Heat olive oil in a wide skillet. Cook the smokies until lightly browned. Set aside.
In the same pan, saute onions and garlic until they are soft. Add the potatoes, carrots and celery. Add a bit more oil if needed. Cook the vegetables until the carrot and potatoes are fork-tender.
Add the butter and stir the ingredients well. Once the butter is bubbly, add the flour. Stir it in until no white streaks remain.
Again, the butter will start to become bubbly. Gradually add in the chicken broth and milk. Cook while stirring constantly, until the liquid thickens.
Add the cooked smokies back to the pan. Add the peas. Stir all the ingredients well, making sure that the smokies are coated with the sauce.
Evenly divide the filling between two 9-inch pie plates.
Top with the rounds of biscuits. Bake the pot pies at 400 F for about 20-25 minutes, or until the biscuits are golden and the sauce is bubbly.
And finally, enjoy a hearty meal filled with Grimm’s Fine Foods Original Bavarian Smokies, warm and fresh out of the oven. I tell you, this dish is so tasty and filling even with the smokies alone!
