Sweet Potato Pot Pie

We watched ThrowDown with Bobby Flay the other day and this sweet potato pot pie looked so yummy.

Darn, I’m not impressed with the second picture so I hope you will imagine how perfect and yummy it was.

My husband loves pot pie, but I don’t make it because I always hate everything sitting in a nasty gravy and that soggy crust. These pot pies looked much more up my alley. We tried the Casserole Queens‘ filling and Bobby Flay’s biscuit crust. I baked the biscuits right on top and they baked through perfectly, but you could do it like the recipe says and bake it separate.
