Expert Tips

If you don’t have sliced bacon on hand but you do have real bacon bits, you can sauté the onion and thyme in 1 tablespoon olive oil, then just sprinkle the pot pie with about 1/4 cup bacon bits before you add the bread crumbs.

This recipe turns a few pantry items into a delicious, one-dish meal.
