    11 Pies You Can Eat For Dinner

    Need we say more?


    Pie is TOO FABULOUS to only be eaten for dessert. Especially in fall and winter (when cozy food reigns supreme) savory pies, tarts, and galettes are an awesome way to turn seasonal produce into a pretty and delicious meal.

    The recipes in this post are a great place to start, but also remember that you're totally free to freestyle and make up your own savory pastry creation.

    1. Turkey Pot Pie


    This pot pie should be the final destination for all your Thanksgiving leftovers. Get the recipe here.

    2. Sausage and Kale Dinner Tart


    Like a kale salad, but, you know, better. Get the recipe here.

    3. Balkan Lamb and Leek Pie


    Because phyllo dough makes everything better. Get the recipe here.

    4. French Onion Tart


    If you love French onion soup, you should be aware that you can also eat it in pie form. Get the recipe here.

    5. Thanksgiving Root Vegetable Pie


    Forget about the Tofurkey of yore — this is what you want to serve as a vegetarian Thanksgiving main. And then all the time, after that. Get the recipe here.

    6. Fig and Blue Cheese Tart with Honey, Balsalmic and Rosemary


    Figs make everything feel a little fancier. This would be a great party appetizer, or a meal if you pair it with a big green salad. Get the recipe here.

    9. Frito Pie


    Okay, is this technically a pie in the rolled-out-pastry sense? No. But it IS a bowl of chili covered wtih Fritos, cheese, and sour cream, so I'm not really sure what your objection is. Get the recipe here.

    10. Leek and Greens Tart with Cornmeal Crust


    A really easy way to eat your greens: Put them in a decadent, carby crust. Get the recipe here.
