Well, anything edible -- don't get weird.

Tremendous news: you can turn anything into a pot pie. We know, we know, chicken pot pie is such a great recipe -- we couldn't agree more. Steak and mushroom pie is so homey and traditional -- that is so right. But there is a whole world of things just waiting to be turned into a stew and topped with a flaky pastry crust.

Pot pie recipes are a great way to use up leftovers -- be they Thanksgiving turkey or a thick soup. They are also kind of like presents, wrapped up in pastry waiting to make you happy. Here are a few of our favorite ways to mix it up for pot pie season, plus all the classics because you're going to need those, too.
