Marie Callender's pot pies

I can't believe I've lived this long without ever trying Marie Callender's frozen individual pot pies!

After working 6 long days this week, I didn't want to cook tonight and wanted something different. A friend has been after me for years to try Marie Callender's pot pies ... he loves them. I've never been a pot pie fan, though.

Well, I picked up a beef pie for QBro and a chicken pie for me (as it happened, they were on sale ... 2 for $5). Nuked them in the microwave in their own packaging. DEEELICIOUS! And filling! We didn't need anything else - this was a complete meal. And no dishes to wash!

Marie C. ....she's definitely a keeper!

Never tried them but since Buck's been gone I don't have any real desire to cook. I'll check the grocery store the next time I go shopping. Sounds like something I could use in the wintertime. Thanks for the heads-up.

They are great, and with a great side salad a complete meal for us as well. However, with costs, we don't have them very often just when they come on sale and/or we have a coupon.

I don't pick them up unless they are on sale either, but they are definitely good, Laurie. Heck, I like that pot pie from KFC, too.

Actually, I agree with Pacanis, the KFC pot pie is darn good too, LOL!

I don't like the crust. Actually, the only pot pie I like is the one I make, and I'm way overdue at doing that.

Yep, dee - I'm going to try both things next time - the Alfredo and the oven!

I'm so tickled over my "new discovery"!

They are GREAT! There's a mushroom one too with Parmesan - it's really good! Quite satisfying when you are drop dead tired and hungry!
