The last of the pork
--Barbecue Pork Pot Pie

Barbecue Pork Pot Pie
Easy Pies With Pillsbury Crusts Copyright 2004

1 Refrigerated pie crust, softened as directed on box
1 Container (18 oz) Lloyd's refrigerated fully cooked shredded pork I used homemade pulled pork
1 1/2 cups frozen southern-style diced hashbrowns
1 1/2 cups frozen corn ,thawed
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (6 oz) I used Cabot's 50% light

1. Heat oven to 425. Make pie crust as directed on box for one-crust baked shell using 9 inch glass pie pan. Bake 5 - 7 minutes or until very lightly browned.

2. Remove partially baked crust from oven. Spoon half of the shredded pork into crust. Top with potatoes, thawed corn and half of the cheese. Spoon remaining shredded pork over top. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Cover edge of crust with strips of foil to prevent excessive browning.

4. Return pie to oven; bake 30 -35 minutes longer or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Cut into wedges.

Okay, I didn't let this rest before cutting it. I was too impatient. So the picture is a little bit sloppy but it cut cleaner after it rested a while.

I made this because I had a pie crust from Thanksgiving left over and I had pulled pork in the freezer. I wasn't terrible excited about it until I took the first bite. I can't vouch for this with the Lloyd's since I think I've tried it and it's not as good as my homemade pulled pork. I'm disappointed that I've used up all of that pulled pork.

I have no idea what I'm making for dinner tomorrow night! Well, it's going to be chicken breasts but I have no idea what I'm going to make with it. I had Chicken Piccata on the menu but I forgot to buy lemons.

Blast From The Past: Chicken Marsala with Mushrooms from October 2007. Maybe I'll make this tomorrow night but without the mushrooms. I had some mushrooms leftover from the kabobs the other night but I tossed them thinking I wouldn't be able to use them before they went bad.

Question of the Day: What are you having for dinner tonight?

Oh, Paula. You WOULD choose today to ask this question! LOL! I have been having really nice meals lately. Last night was your Pork with Glazed Onions, rice, broccoli and tomatoes. Before that it was ham steaks, baked sweet potatoes and veggie (can't remember what). Today I shopped all day. Three stores and then a looong grocery shopping trip. I was pooped, so even though I had catfish ready to cook, I opted for Hamburger Helper. Yikes!

Tonight is grilled pork chops, steamed broccoli, cauliflower and probably rice for the kids.

Probably pork chops. As for what with? Who knows.

NEVER toss mushrooms. Salt and pepper, toss in the microwave for a minute or two until they are cooked and have given off juices. Eat the mushrooms with your fingers (okay, a fork if they are too hot ;) then drink the dark "broth" from the bowl. Ahhhhh.

You can also cook the mushrooms this way then package in a plastic container or ziploc and freeze, and use in place of canned mushrooms in recipes.

Split Pea Soup with Sausage (I'm using one of those boxed split pea mixes).
I keep seeing those Lloyds Pulled Pork containers but never knew what to do with them. I think I'll wait to try this will homemade pulled pork though.
