Needing the ultimate comfort food but want to elevate it? I love a good pot pie. Who doesn't?! Add a little white wine and swap biscuits for the traditional pie crust and now we're talking! White Wine Skillet Biscuit Pot Pie recipe coming your way!
White Wine in a Pot Pie
What better way to elevate something "normal" than to add a splash of wine?! I love a good glass of wine (duh!) but adding it to food can really add something special that will leave people wondering what you did differently!?
By using a splash of white wine with the thyme, rosemary, and oregano in this pot pie gives it a flair for the holidays (or weeknight dinner!) that will leave people wanting more of this skillet biscuit pot pie recipe.
The general rule of thumb for cooking with wine is you don't need to buy the best of the best, but still make sure that it's something you would drink. We also don't want something too sweet here either (no moscato!)
Biscuit Skillet Pot Pie
Another way we are switching things up for this skillet pot pie recipe is swapping the traditional pie crust for buttermilk biscuits and cooking it in a cast iron skillet.
Bake the biscuits in the skillet, cut the tops off, pour the pot pie filling over and top with the biscuits and pop back in the oven.
It makes for a great display piece but also each biscuit is the size of one serving! So it makes it easy to dish it up to guests or family
What Vegetables Go in a Pot Pie?
This is totally up to you. Traditionally carrot, onion, celery, and peas make up the pot pie filling. I added corn and lots of herbs to mine to really make it feel like the holidays!
Feel free to add any vegetables that speak to you. Potatoes or sweet potatoes would be a great addition to our White Wine Skillet Biscuit Pot Pie.
