Is there such a thing as "Mac 'N Cheese" Pot Pie?

As in macaroni and cheese stuffed inside a pot pie shell?

Perhaps it would be carb overload, but the idea sort of intrigues me for some reason.

  1. Never heard of it, but I scoffed at deep fried mac and cheese balls until I tasted one.

    1. Sort of similar to my dream of making a Mac'n Cheese sandwich!

        My husband makes them, and they're delicious. Think mac and cheese grilled cheese...with kraft blue box pasta, and kraft singles, of course.

      2. Sounds kind of revolting. But possibly something someone like Rachael Ray or Paula Deen would make.

            Couldn't you imagine a lobster mac 'n cheese encased in a flaky pot pie pastry shell?

            I think that would be pretty good.

              Almost as good as a hotdog salad.

                I think a lobster pot pie with a nice flaky crust would be great.

                  Lobster Pie and Clam Pie are very popular where I am, I made them for Christmas Eve last year. You can use regular pie crust or puff pastry.

            2. I've seen a mac and cheese pizza along the same lines.

              1. It sounds great! BTW, in Pennsylvania Dutch cooking, noodles are used as top crust for pot pies. I've tried it - a little chewy, but good. Come to think of it, a slab of cheese over those noodles would keep them moist, and there you have it - mac'n cheese topped pot pie!
