Preparation Tips

If you like a thicker pot pie filling, you can either add a quarter of a teaspoon of xanthan gum or two egg yolks to the filling. For a crispier crust, consider topping the pot pie with sprinkles of your favorite keto nuts or even shredded cauliflower combined with grated Parmesan. Another thing to consider is if you have a cast iron skillet, then feel free to use it throughout the whole preparation process. Otherwise, a casserole dish helps bake the pot pie evenly.
