Savory Pies

When you think of pie, you might picture a dessert overflowing with fruit, sugary nuts or chocolate, but flaky, buttery pie crust also pairs extremely well with savory ingredients. Pies are a great way to make a one-dish dinner that can feed a crowd. From a classic chicken pot pie to a mouth-watering quiche, there's no limit to the fillings that you can put inside a crust. Use Food & Wine's guide to help spark your creativity the next time you need an amazing meal idea.

Potato, Bacon, and Cheddar Tart

It’s crucial to use thinly sliced bacon here, (not thick-cut) to achieve an evenly crisp crust. Seek out new crop potatoes for this recipe; they cook more evenly than potatoes that have been in storage. Save the bacon drippings for toast, basting roasted chicken, or for making cornbread.
