Potato Pie (Side Dish)

Self-Crusting Potato Pie to serve as a side or a meatless main dish with a salad

Easy and delicious Potato Pie side dish to most main meals. I love the combination of potatoes, onion and cheddar cheese in this dish.

It cuts into portions easily and looks as appetizing as it is delicious. You can not go wrong with this recipe, and it is all ingredients which you should already have in your pantry.

This is going to be another favorite with our family – there were no leftovers and only three of us !

Even though the crust part and the filling are prepared separately, the Pie combines everything together nicely.
