If we’re being honest, even though we’re very well rounded crafting enthusiasts, our very favourite way to get creative is with food. We’re always looking for new things to try in the kitchen and, because we’re such pie lovers, we usually end up baking. Sweet dessert pies are admittedly our very favourites, but there’s something about the fall season that actually makes us crave savoury things more often than not. That’s why we’ve been so intrigued by the idea of learning how to make more delicious kinds of savoury fall pies lately!
Are you feeling just as enthusiastic about trying your hand at a few savoury pies this fall as we were, if not more? Check out this list of 15 delicious recipes, ideas, and flavour combinations that we’ve come across so far in our search.
1. Fast chicken pot pie
Chicken pot pie is the kind of classic dinner that a lot of people will make no matter the season, but something about it just makes us feel particularly satisfied in the fall. Between the delicious crust, the warmth of the creamy filling, and the delicious combination of chicken, potatoes, and vegetables, it’s a compact but filling meal that’s nice and easy to serve. This recipe from Bon Appetit is particularly fast and simple to make, even for beginners!
2. Butternut squash pie with feta
Perhaps you’re very interested indeed in the idea of making a filling, healthy dinner pie but someone in your family also has some dietary restrictions, so you’re looking for a recipe that doesn’t involve meat? In that case, we have a feeling you might get along a little better with this deliciously fall-tasting butternut squash pie with feta, outlined step by step on A Beautiful Plate!
3. Chicken, chorizo, and cider pot pies
If you’re going to put in all the time and effort it takes to make a delicious savoury pie, would you actually much rather make something that has a little extra flavour or kick to it? In that case, we have a feeling this delicious chicken, chorizo, and cider pot pie recipe from Delicious Magazine might be right up your alley! We wouldn’t say it’s outright spicy, per se, but it’s certainly packed with a more international flavour than the classic chicken pot pie you saw before.
4. Vegan lentil and mushroom Sheperd’s pie
Believe it or not, not every single savoury pie you make this fall has to involve some kind of flaky pastry crust! If you’re more of a veggies and potatoes kind of person, then we’d definitely suggest taking a look all the different versions of Sheperd’s pie you might make instead! Just in case you’re still looking for recipes that are suitable for dietary restrictions, like we talked about before, here’s an absolutely scrumptious recipe from One Green Planet for making a vegan lentil and mushroom Sheperd’s pie from scratch.
