It’s an anything goes pot pie because you can use any combination of meat and vegetables (or even vegetables only) for the filling. And for those who aren’t too adept at making pie crust, here’s an alternative — use pancake batter. Yes, pancake batter. Just mix, pour over the filling and bake.
But pancake batter wouldn’t make a crisp nor flaky crust, would it? No. This is similar to the Tex-Mex tamale pie (not to be confused with the authentic Mexican tamale) which has a chili-like ground meat filling and cornbread top crust. A delicious one-pot meal that has everything in it. »
