Make-It-Mine Pot Pie

Ingredients
1
pound Ground Meat or 2 cups Cooked Meat
1
9 ounce package Frozen Vegetables (about 2 cups)
1
10 1/2 ounce can condensed soup Base or 1 1/4 cups gravy or pasta sauce Base
1
teaspoon Seasoning
1/2
cup water (optional)
1/2
cup Cheese (optional)
 
Topper
 
Milk
 
Grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. If using Ground Meat option: In a large skillet cook meat until no longer pink. Drain fat; discard. Stir in Frozen Vegetables, Base, and Seasoning. (If using Cooked Meat option: In a large skillet combine meat, Frozen Vegetables, Base, and Seasoning.) Bring meat and vegetable mixture to boiling. Add water, if needed, for desired consistency. If desired, stir in Cheese.
  2. Transfer meat and vegetable mixture to a 2-quart round casserole or baking dish. For Topper, unfold pastry sheet or unroll piecrust, if using. On a lightly floured surface, roll pastry sheet or piecrust to 1 inch beyond the edge of the casserole. Place pastry on top of casserole. Trim pastry evenly with casserole's edge or trim, leaving 1 inch excess pastry. Fold excess pastry under, even with the casserole's edge. Press pastry along edges to seal. If using biscuits or crescent rolls, quarter individual pieces and arrange over filling. If using breadsticks, unroll and loosely weave over filling.
  3. Brush Topper lightly with milk and, if desired, sprinkle with additional Seasoning or grated Parmesan cheese. Bake, uncovered, in the preheated oven for 22 to 25 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly. Let stand for 20 minutes before serving.
