Ham & Field Pea Pot Pie

J. White Harris


I wanted to create a different type of Pot Pie and use up some ham left from Easter dinner. I paired the ham with Field Peas (like Black Eyed Peas) and used ingredients found in other pot pies. I used Corn Muffin Mix for a different type of crust. The results were great. I'm going to make this up for the next pot luck dinner I go to.

Pair this with a nice salad for a complete meal.
