Easy as pie: The Pot Pie Sampler
What’s the ultimate comfort food? Mashed potatoes… meatloaf… lasagna…? All good guesses, but in my humble opinion, pot pie has them all beat. Think about it: A great pot pie has that warm, melt-in-your-mouth filling of tender braised meat or seafood and slow-cooked vegetables, all nestled in a buttery, flaky crust. Just what you need to soothe your spirits after a challenging day, or to get you back in action after a busy weekend of shopping and socializing.
I’ve always been partial to the classic chicken pot pie, which Allen Brothers makes with lean, tender chicken simmered in a hearty gravy with a mix of chunky potatoes, onions, carrots, and peas. But lately I’ve also fallen for the other Allen Brothers varieties too: the beef tenderloin pot pie, which has fork-tender beef plus all my favorite pot pie veggies and meaty Portobello mushrooms braised in a wine sauce, all sitting under a crisp puff pastry crust; and the pork pot pie, which is packed with juicy pork and a seven-bean mix and spiced with a touch of chipotle pepper, then capped with a sweet corn-muffin topping; and last but not least, the seafood chowder pot pie, jammed with shrimp, lobster, king crab, potatoes, corn, and green peppers in a thick chowder crowned with a flaky pastry topping.
Four deliciously different pot pies to choose from all winter long. What could be better than that? Only one thing: the new Allen Brothers Pot Pie Sampler, which includes one of each type, so you don’t even have to choose. And if you decide on a clear favorite once you’ve tried all four, then make sure to stock up on plenty of that for the cold season ahead.
Oh, one more thing: Know anyone who could use some comfort food right about now? The Pot Pie Sampler makes a unique, thoughtful, perfect holiday gift…
