Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 1 hour
- 1 1/4 lbs Ham- diced
- 3 Tablespoons Salted Butter
- 3 Tablespoons Flour
- 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
- 1/2 Teaspoon Pepper
- 1 1/2 Cups Whole Milk
- 1 Cup Chicken Broth
- 3 Cups Mixed Vegetables
- 1/2 Cup of Onion diced
- 2 Prepared Pie Crusts- Rolled
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit
Dice the onion
In a large Saute pan, heat butter on medium until melted, add in the onion, salt and pepper, stir to coat onions with butter. Saute on medium for 2-3 minutes, the onions will start to turn translucent.
Add in the flour, stirring to coat the onions with flour. Continue cooking on medium, stirring constantly so the flour doesn't burn and the flour absorbs the butter. This should take about 5 minutes.
While the flour mixture continues to cook, slowly add in the milk and chicken broth, stirring constantly.
Continue cooking on medium-low heat until the sauce becomes a velvety white sauce.
Add in ham and mixed vegetables and allow to simmer on low for about 10-15 minutes. This allows the flavors to combine.
Turn off the heat and let cool for about 10-15 minutes. We don't want the hot liquid going directly into our pie crust or the crust tends to get a little gummy in texture.
Unroll the pie crust, you may have to use a rolling pin to stretch the dough a little so it completely covers the bottom and hangs over the sides of the deep dish pie plate about 1/4 inch.
Place the pie crust in the bottom of the pie plate and pour in the ham filling.
Unroll the second pie crust on top and seal edges by folding the upper pie crust under the edge of the bottom crust and rolling them under to create the edge of your pie.
Poke a few holes in the top to allow steam to escape and keep the crust crispy.
using a fork or your thumb, crimp the edges of the pie crust to make a pretty edge and help seal the top and bottom together.
Place pot pie in the oven and cook on 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until the pie crust is brown and crispy.
Remove from oven and allow to cool at least 10 minute before cutting and serving.
