Savory Mashed Potato Pie

Kimberly Biegacki


Wow, potato flakes can be impressive! I was shocked at the richness and beauty of this savory pie.
I am not a fan of potato flakes but this sure does change my mind. It is no wonder this was a prize winner with Pillsbury.

It is just beautiful! My husband loved the pie and said already that he wants me to make it again.
It is super easy and looks so festive! Could be served for any holiday meal or even a special dinner.

From my Pilsbury Christmas cookbook.
