He bought it at Cosco. I don't know about where you live, but where I live I would not trust the advice of the people who work in that department. They are not authorities. They are minimum wage workers (or maybe slightly higher) who are working to pay off their first car while in high school. Of course this is not every employee, but my point is that the workers at stores like that are not trained on the food. They are shown how to stock shelves and ring on the register.

Actually instructions were included, but the pie is sold fresh and they didn't address cooking it frozen.

As for Costco, there's much I dislike about it, but I think you've sold their meat department short. I'm not a studied expert on it, but from what I can tell, I think their meat department really is quite professional and well trained in what they do.

I am glad they are professional and know what they are doing by you. I wish the stores by me took a lesson from your Cosco.

Ours is the same way Larry. Both Sams and Costco.
I think I would treat it as any other pot pie. Pull it out and pop it in on a cookie sheet. Give it at least an hour at 350 and then check it.

yes cook pot pie frozen

Awesome pie, I had to freeze it. Cooked it tonight, put it oven , middle rack, 375, with foil on rack (gotta catch bubble over), cover frozen costco pie with foil. Bake 1 hour. Remove foil. Continue baking 1 1/2 hours. Maybe add some minutes depending on your oven. Make salads and invite friends. Feeds 6 small eaters. Hope this helps.
