    Post possible pot pie question

    i know you can make a pot pie in a dish just by adding biscuits ontop.

    what i want to know is, can you take the same biscuit, spread it out w/a rolling pin to flatten/stretch & it come out good?

    ds is the only one in our house who would eat a pot pie and since there are plenty of times meat is left over, i'd like to use it productively. so it would be a small one pot pie sized dish that i could use one or two biscuits on, but i'd need to stretch/widen them.

    so, what do you think?

    thanks

    My mom used to roll hers out with a rolling pin. I just make my biscuit dough more wet and spread it over the pot pie. I like using leftover meat this way, because you can add whatever veggies you want.

    I do a taco pot pie kind of thing with corn bread spread on top, so I don't see why it wouldn't work.

    You'd just have to watch it and maybe increase the baking time to make sure the biscuits cook all the way through the middle since they won't be baking individually!

    That is what I do sometimes too. Add a little extra milk & make it "pourable". I also make drop biscuits and just drop dollops over the pot pie filling and bake it that way sometimes.

    ooh i like the drop biscuit i idea... costs less!

    well i didnt know if by taking a canned biscuit and re-working it, if it'd break any gluten & not rise.

    with the drop biscuits... do i need to make it a little more wet too?
    and when you say wet... how much wetter do you mean? a tablespoon or a quarter cup?

    thanks a bunch... ds will love this!

    Give it a try. At the worst you've ruined a couple of biscuits. You can always scoop out the filling and serve it over toast.

    I don't measure how much extra milk

    I just get it to the consistency of thick pancake batter and pour it on. It's so good when it sinks down into all the nooks & crannies and bakes there mmmm.
