Hot ham pie is the savory, satisfying dinner we all need this winter! It’s easy to put together and it’s a guaranteed hit with the whole family.
Onion Celery Garlic Unsalted butter All-purpose flour Chicken broth or stock Whole milk Nutmeg Frozen mixed vegetables Cooked ham Parsley Kosher salt & black pepper Frozen pie crust
Cook onion and celery for 4 minutes. Add garlic and continue to cook for 2 minutes. Add flour and cook for 2 minutes. Slowly pour in the chicken stock and milk and whisk until the sauce thickens.
Add nutmeg, then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes. Stir in the mixed vegetables; remove from heat and let the filling sit for 10 minutes. Add the ham and parsley, then season to taste. Pour the filling into the pie dish.
Roll out the pie dough until it’s an inch larger than your dish. Place the rolled out dough onto the top of the pie pan; crimp the edges to seal them and cut several slits to vent the top.
Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the crust is browned and the filling is bubbling up through vents. Let the pie rest for 10 minutes then serve.
The combination of savory ham, vegetables, and a creamy sauce makes for a delicious and filling dinner, especially for chilly winter evenings.
