20 Cozy Pot Pies for Weeknights at Home
Plenty of people love pot pies. But most of us don’t love all the work that comes with making them.
That’s why we should all have an easy pot pie recipe on hand.
And this one is about as easy as it gets. You’ll need just six ingredients and about 10 minutes of prep time.
Even if you’ve never made a pot pie before, you can with this recipe. Best of all, it tastes just as good as any from-scratch pot pie you’ve had.
It has the same flaky, buttery crust, tender veggies, and rich sauce. It just requires half the prep work!
This one isn’t quite as easy as the one above. Still, it’s not a complicated recipe to follow.
It uses a few more ingredients and takes about five more minutes of prep. And who doesn’t have an extra five minutes, right?
This one is the better option if you like herby pot pies with lattice tops.
If there’s one thing I have plenty of, it’s easy recipes for pot pies!
This one uses a refrigerated pie crust, saving you the trouble of making your own.
It’s not as flaky as the homemade recipe but is still buttery and delicious. It’s also an excellent choice if you like your pot pies a little cheesy.
Speaking of cheesy: this insanely cheesy, delightfully herby pot pie is another yummy option your family will love.
It forgoes the traditional peas and onions in favor of broccoli and cheese.
There are still juicy chunks of chicken, sweet carrots, and a creamy sauce. However, the broccoli and cheese filling takes this pot pie to a whole new level.
It’s an almost surefire way to get your kiddos to eat more broccoli, too!
Let’s move away from chicken and check out a turkey pot pie, shall we?
Feel free to use fresh turkey for this – I know plenty of people who prefer it over chicken.
That said, this recipe is excellent for using up holiday leftovers.
You’ll simplify the crust-making process with Bisquick. And forget chopping vegetables, too; a frozen bag of mixed veggies will do just fine.
Making this one takes 45 minutes from start to finish, and it’s worth every second you spend on it.
Don’t get me wrong; I love the traditional round pot pie. It’s the kind my mom used to make, and it’s superb.
But have you ever tried a biscuit-topped pot pie? Talk about comfort food!
These types of pies will warm your belly and your heart. Just picture it: homemade biscuits, tons of cheese, warm chicken, and plenty of veggies.
Seriously, what could be better than that?! You won’t need any sides with a main course like this.
7. Beef Pot Pie
Beef pot pies are hard to beat if you want something incredibly rich and filling.
This particular recipe takes a couple of hours to make. However, the hands-on time isn’t all that much.
And it’s more than worth it in the end.
This pie has a beautiful golden-brown crust and is oozing with a flavorful sauce. Of course, the thick, succulent chunks of beef chuck don’t hurt, either.
It’s the kind of meal farmers like to come home to after a hard day. Fortunately, you don’t have to be a farmer to appreciate it.
Steak and mushroom pot pie is another seriously hearty dinner your whole family will go nuts for.
It, too, takes a few hours to make, and it, too, is absolutely worth it.
It’s a herby, earthy pie with a buttery puff pastry crust that perfectly complements the robust, rich sauce.
I’m not sure what I love more – the mushrooms or the steak. Both are pretty yummy.
If you’re still drooling over that biscuit pot pie but need something vegan, don’t stress – I got you, Boo!
This veggie and protein-packed pie is 100% vegan-friendly and features a hearty base of chickpeas and Russet potatoes.
The vegan cheddar biscuits on top are mouth-wateringly good, too.
In fact, you might want to save this recipe just for those. They taste as good alone as they do on this pie.
These one-hour vegan pot pies are a little lighter than the ones above. They don’t have chickpeas and potatoes, but they do have all the other veggies.
You’ll still top them with vegan biscuits, too. Only these are all single-serve pot pies.
That means everyone gets their own.
Now, you’ll just have to keep the fast eaters from stealing everyone else’s dinner!
Is there anything better than a delightful mix of spring veggies?

Your kiddos are sure to love it, too.
I love puff pastry. And I adore creamy bechamel sauce and tender veggies.
Put them all together, and I’m all over that.
This vegetarian pot pie uses just a handful of ingredients and takes only an hour to make. It’s a simple, tasty, vegetarian dream come true.

Breathe new life into an old classic with this curried pot pie recipe.
Like most pot pie recipes, it features chicken, sauce, veggies, and a rich crust. But, unlike most pot pies, it’s also swimming in curry.

Try it the next time you want something a little different.

It’s also enough to serve six people, so it’s ideal for a family feast.
This recipe delivers in spades if you want good, old-fashioned soul food.
I’ll be honest; crustless pot pies aren’t my favorites. After all, I’ve already expressed my love for the warm, flaky, buttery crusts.
Still, sometimes, you don’t need/want all those carbs. In that case, give this recipe a try.
With the Panko-covered bowtie noodles, it’s still not considered a low-carb or keto-friendly dish. However, it does cut down on carbs.
And if you use the breadcrumbs and skip the noodles, it’s even lower!
This cozy one-pan meal is a hard one to pass up.
It features a stout beer sauce, well-seasoned chunks of ground beef, and tons of veggies.
The crust is flaky, light, and a lovely golden brown. Plus, this pie is brimming with sweet and hearty parsnips.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t think we cook with parsnips nearly enough. So, if you’ve got some in the pantry, give this recipe a spin.
