Classic Comfort Food

Well, I didn't get the photo when I pulled it out of the oven. But it was pretty.

And it sure did smell good. And it was bubbly and golden brown crusted, and...... it got eaten.

I thought I would at least make reference to it today, since I knew there was another Foodie Friday going on. At least a third of it was still left, last I saw, so I grabbed my camera and went out to grab a shot to show that golden brown crust, but alas....this is all that was left..

What's a blogger to do???

I'll give you the next best thing. Here is where I got my recipe for Chicken Pot Pie in an Iron Skillet.

Just arrived in my mail box yesterday. And the March Issue is awesome!!

And here is the photo that came with the recipe. This is the best one I've made yet.
Cooking in the Iron Skillet just made a difference. There are several other recipes to be done in the skillet and I plan on trying the Berry Crumble recipe.

So grab yourself a Country Living (March 2010 issue) and turn to the food section and try out this new take...on an old take...with a traditional recipe. I don't think you will have any leftovers if you have more than 2 or 3 persons in your house!

Jump over to Gollum's Foodie Friday to see yummy pictures and get delicious recipes to try out.

Thanks for visiting, and remember...

Looks like a good recipe to try! I love recipes that call for baking in an iron skillet. Mine is starting to get some age to it, but I did a fritata in it last weekend and it was WONDERFUL. The skillet allows browning that can't be beat.

Good Morning Julie, I have that magazine and I saw that recipe! My Mama always cooked in an iron skillet but the only one I have is a tiny one that was my Daddy's. It sure sounds delicious. I hate it when I forget to take a picture before it is all gone, but... that shows how good it was:) I am making tomato chutney today to put over steak in the crockpot. It smells soooooo good! I'll be starving by lunchtime. Have a blessed day dear friend!

Thanks for this post! I have an iron skillet but never really use it! I didn't know how much better it could be!
Speaking of food...I'm in the mood to make some cupcakes with Ganache frosting! YUMM!

There isn't an iron skillet large enough to make chicken pot pie for my crew, but it sure looks wonderful!

To disappear so quickly it had to be a wonderful dish. I do love chicken pot pie, but would never think to use an iron skillet. This is definitely something that I would like to try!

ButterYum said...

Haha - you're too funny. I have one word to say.... Beano!

PS - I'm sure your 19 year old could eat a pan full himself. And forget about Mr. Marine... he'd need two pans! My deepest gratitude for his service to this great nation of ours!!!
