Notes

BULK PREPARATION & FREEZING: You can easily prepare this recipe in bulk – I usually make 4 at a time. I cook 1 for dinner and freeze the others without cooking them. There’s no need to defrost the Pot Pie before placing it in the oven at 425 for 45 min – 1 hour. I generally test the center with my thermometer to make sure the center is thoroughly thawed and reaches at least 100 degrees.
