easiest pot pies

Who loves comfort food?  <<raises hand>>  Maybe the real question should be who doesn’t love comfort food?  One complaint of comfort food that I hear often is that it’s not healthy.  Another popular complaint is that it takes too long to make.  Womp, womp.  Well, friends, I’ve got a solution for you today.  These are, by far and away, the easiest pot pies ever to make.  Yes, I said ever.  And they’re delicious.  And they come in the most perfect portions, so you don’t have to worry about overindulging.  One option is a beef pot pie made with garden vegetables and flaky pastry crust.

Want the recipe?  While I can’t quite give you that, I can give you the secret.  The secret is Blake’s.  Blake’s does all the hard work for you.  All you have to do is pop the pot pie in the oven (or microwave!), sit down, relax, and enjoy.  Their pies are made from scratch in small batches by wonderful happy people (not machine) and feature garden vegetables, potatoes, a savory signature gravy, and a flaky pie crust.  Home cooking has literally never been easier!

I’ve made these pot pies both in the oven and the microwave.  The microwave is easier, and I think they turn out great both ways.  I do like to pop it under the broiler for a few minutes to make the crust (best part) a bit crispier.  Blake’s pot pies come in beef or turkey, both the beef and turkey are raised without antibiotics.

Other noteworthy facts about Blake’s pot pies:

  • no antibiotics used
  • 0 grams trans fat
  • no artificial flavors
  • fed no animal by-products
  • no artificial colors
  • no preservatives

Yes, y’all, these are frozen meals.  No, I don’t rely on them for daily lunches or dinners.  However, sometimes I am in a pinch or sometimes I am craving something that I don’t feel like making.  That’s when Blake’s comes into the picture.  I feel good about eating these since there are only real ingredients used.  I also love how they are the perfect portions, so I don’t go crazy overboard with these delicious comfort food meals.  I try to compliment them with a fresh side, such as this kale salad I ate alongside the turkey pot pie.

Blake’s pot pies are brand new and came to Meijer and Publix stores this month, with more to come over the summer and early in the fall including Sprouts and Acme.  There are many other organic, all natural, and family size meals that come in a variety of options.  Target, Walmart, Whole Foods, and local groceries are just some of the other stores that carry Blake’s.  (Check their store locator to see what’s by you.)  I always keep a few Blake’s meals in my freezer for those emergency, gotta have moments!

What’s your all time favorite comfort meal?  Mine is probably shepherds pie or macaroni and cheese, both of which Blake’s makes!

  1. These look sooo good! And yes though I wouldn’t use them regularly there are some nights moms just need comfort, fast, and brainless food 🙂

    We don’t have either of those stores near us 🙁 but I’m hopeful they’ll expand!

    • Definitely great for busy mommas! Check out your local Target – they may not have these pot pies yet, but probably have other great flavors! 🙂

  2. Biscuits and gravy – with my grandmother’s homemade buttermilk biscuits is hands down my favorite comfort food. I love the idea of quick meals that are healthy – this would be great on those nights that my husband is working late on our family farm and I have to handle homework with our oldest, baths and bedtime routines for both girls by myself, etc.

    • Yum, drooling just thinking about it!! And yes, these Blake’s meals are perfect for those crazy busy evenings!! Stock your freezer!!
