Pot pie is one of the first dishes we think of when we think of classic comfort food, from its rich savory filling to a golden brown crust. Done right, it's a dish that leaves you full, satisfied and with a warmth that seeps into your bones. Read on to see our favorite takes on pot pie.

Chewy, salt-topped pretzels fill in for the traditional pastry crust topping to add fun flair and texture to the dish.

If you find that the crust all but disappears before the rest of the dish when you serve it, make this sheet pan version covered in puff pastry from corner to corner.

Don’t feel like slaving over the stove? These kid-friendly pockets put store-bought goods to work so you don’t have to, with canned cream of chicken soup, frozen vegetables and rotisserie chicken in the filing and refrigerated pie crust for the shell.

This meat-free version adds mushrooms and extra-firm tofu for heft and soy sauce for an extra burst of umami. The recipe also switches out pastry dough with a topping of toasted potato bread for a table-ready meal in 40 minutes.
