Ham and Green Bean Pot Pies
Recipe by Deanna Segrave-Daly, RD, LDN
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
6 ounces cooked ham, diced
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
1 can (14.5 oz.) Libby's French Style Green Beans, drained
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 egg, beaten
1 (9 oz.) pie crust, thawed
1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
2. In large pot, heat oil over medium. Add garlic and ham, sauté 2 minutes. Stir in flour, cook 2 minutes, stirring often. Mix in milk, green beans, thyme, salt and pepper; cook about 6 minutes or until mixture thickens. Remove from heat.
3. Spoon ham and vegetable mixture into 4 ramekins. Brush whisked egg over lip of each ramekin.
4. On a floured surface, roll out pie dough. Using 4-inch circle cuter, cut out 4 circles. Drape dough over each ramekin, crimping and sealing to the lip. Brush the remaining egg wash over top of each piece. Make 3 slits on top of each dough piece.
5. Place ramekins on a baking sheet. Cook for 30 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool 10 minutes before serving.
