I do not know why I bother with any type of pie. My kids simply won’t eat it, or they complain if I’m making them eat it. They will not even try apple pie. No pie! They hate the crust which makes me wonder who their real mother must be. I love crust so much I will eat every bit of crust dough that I shave off the edges of my pie. I will break off every cooked piece of crust around the entire edge after the pie comes out as well. This is why I can never work in a bakery.
Use your own recipe for pie crust, a pre-made pie crust, or this one.
My favorite filling consists of a small amount of chicken, loads of broccoli, and a cheese sauce. Click here for the recipe. This meal also freezes well! Make two and you have an extra meal for a busy night.
Since my kids do not even like apple pie, I was not surprised by their reaction to my broccoli pie. Hopefully your kids are more pleasable. My husband and I think it tasted great. The flip-flopper says, “I hate this! Why can’t we have something good like pancake puffs?” Ever since we got the Digital Converter for our TV and got the Qubo channel, the kids have been asking to buy a Pancake Puff Pan. My kids are easily swayed by smooth advertising. How about a commercial about broccoli pie? Anyone?
