Weekend Cooking: Broccoli Cheese Mini Pies

broccoli piesI’ve never done a Weekend Cooking post before, but when I put the above photo on Instagram a few days ago (I’m kinda, sorta back to social media) JoAnn suggested that I make a post out of it and I thought, ‘Why not?’ I love sharing good, easy recipes with others who may be looking for the same kind of no-fuss cooking that I am.

My library had a potluck this week and the theme was PIE. I didn’t want to bring a dessert pie as we usually have an abundance of sweets and not enough savory dishes. After searching online for a while I decided to make these really easy mini pies that you cook in a muffin tin. No, they are not gourmet and not fancy. But they are scrumptious! It’s a Betty Crocker recipe and I made a couple of adaptations – no chicken as my boss is a vegetarian and I used fresh broccoli instead of frozen.

When I put them out on the table on Wednesday morning they gleaned lots of interest and were gone within an hour. A successful and, I think, repeatable dish which is wonderful as we have tons of potlucks at work and I now have another dish to add to my rotating repertoire.


Weekend Cooking, hosted at Beth Fish Reads, is open to anyone who has any kind of food-related post to share: Book (novel, nonfiction) reviews, cookbook reviews, movie reviews, recipes, random thoughts, gadgets, quotations, photographs. If your post is even vaguely foodie, feel free to grab the button and link up anytime over the weekend. You do not have to post on the weekend. Please link to your specific post, not your blog’s home page.

  1. Those do look delicious – and I agree with Katrina, potlucks are great. We had a Thanksgiving potluck at work – not all traditional foods, but really good. I looked at the recipe & was glad to see suggestions for other vegetables, since broccoli and I don’t get on.


    1. Do you have any good potluck dishes to share? It’s hard coming up with ideas sometimes!
      I think these would be good with a variety of things in them – spinach would be great.


  2. OMG! These looks super and perfect for a potluck. In fact, I have a holiday potluck this coming weekend and I’m going to make these. Thanks so much for sharing the reipe.


  3. Ooh, those look like the perfect potluck recipe. I did potatoes au gratin for my work potluck this past weekend, but I made them a smidge too peppery and undersalted them a tad. Not my finest work. I’ll do better next time.
