Some notes:

Too lazy to make pate brisee? Use store-bought puff pastry.

If you are just a little lazy, make the pastry one day in advance.

This recipe was good for 8 individual pot pies, so we baked 3 and stored the others in the freezer.

And very important, our daughter Isabella loved it, so it was good for the whole family :)
