15 delicious savory pies that you can make for a hearty dinner. The ultimate comfort food on a cold winter night.
Savory pies… yes you heard that right. Who says pies have to be for dessert? If you needed an excuse to have pie for dinner here it is. There is just something so comforting about a savory pie for dinner. Especially in the winter. Often times if I have extra pie crust or some leftover meat I will think of some savory pies to make.
One of my favorite pies to make after Thanksgiving is this turkey pot pie. Need a quick vegetable side dish to go with your pie? Check out these air fryer green beans that can be made in just minutes.
Wondering What To Do With Your Leftover Pie Crust?
The beauty of pie crust is it can be as simple or as sophisticated as you want it to be. Store-bought pie crust (almost) always works just as well. It’s an easy way to simplify a step. Have left over meat or veggies from dinner? In a frying pan cook up a roux with butter and flour whisking in some broth. Toss in your leftovers and let it thicken. Drop into a pie crust and bake. Savory pies can be as easy as that!
Just like a sweet pie, you would have for dessert, most things could be considered fair game for the filling. Savory pies can be the ultimate comfort food on a chilly winter night.
