Instructions

  • Cut whites and dark green parts off leeks. Cut in half and then cut into small half-moon shapes. Place in colander and rinse well. Pat dry with paper towel before adding to pan. Chop garlic.

  • Wrap edges of the crust with foil. Bake at 325 for 45 minutes. Make an egg wash by whisking 1 egg and 1 tablespoon of water together. Remove pot pie from oven, take off the foil and brush pot pie with egg wash. Return to oven and bake for another 5-10 minutes until golden brown.
