Since starting this blog of mine in 2011 I have posted on Pi Day every year except 2020 (I wonder what I was preoccupied with that year?? HA). And every year has been a pie recipe, sweet or savory, except in 2012 when I instead highlighted the flower bouquet cake pops I sent my mom when I couldn’t be there for one of her surgeries. With the exception of major life events, I’m committed to pi(e), what can I say?

Most of the pies I have made over the years were sweet, so this year I decided to try to even out the distribution a bit more by adding another savory pie to the list in the form of this corned beef pot pie! Easily made with any leftover corned beef you may have after St. Patrick’s Day later this week and comes together all in one pan.

What’s in a corned beef pot pie?

The ingredient list obviously includes corned beef, potatoes, cabbage, carrots, and onions, but instead of a traditional flaky pie crust on top I went with even more potato in the form of a crushed potato chip topping. So after you cook up all the vegetables, and thicken the broth in a big cast iron skillet, You sprinkle the top with a mixture of crushed potato chips and panko, then throw it in the oven for the crispiest topping you’ve ever had on a pot pie.

I just used classic salted kettle chips (cause they are extra crunchy). but you could get wild and use any flavor you prefer. Go cheesy, maybe herby, or even spicy. I think there are a lot of flavor options that would compliment this pot pie very well.

Cast Iron Skillet Corned Beef Pot Pie

The hardest part about making this pie? Having enough corned beef leftover. It was easier for us because a 4 pound brisket for two people leaves us with plenty of leftovers. But in a larger household you might have to fight people off to have enough. Thankfully, recipes like this are forgiving when it comes to quantities, so if you don’t have a full 2 cups of corned beef, no matter – throw in some extra veggies and it’ll be all good.
