A few years before starting this pie website, I ran a small micro-bakery. I would deliver freshly baked pies around Boston, usually at the dinner hour. Each week I'd feature a new menu, usually one sweet pie, one savory pie and some type of extra dessert like a hand pie or mini tart. And every week, without fail, the savory pie was always the most ordered item, by a huge margin. While sweet pies tend to get more buzz and attention (because who doesn't love a towering delicious amazing sweet pie), it's the savory pies that really satisfy.

Savory pies truly epitomize versatility, spanning from hearty meat pot pies to hand held pies, making them ideal for any occasion! Whether you're hosting a holiday feast and need a standout vegetarian main dish or a light yet satisfying lunch option, savory pies have got you covered.

Below, I've put together a collection of my top savory pie recipes for you to explore. Don't forget to save this page for those moments when you're craving an exceptional savory pie experience!

  • Author: Kelli Avila
  • Prep Time: 00:20
  • Cook Time: 01:15
  • Total Time: 1 hour 35 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 8
  • Category: Savory Pie
  • Method: Bake

Ingredients

  • pie-crust-of-choice, prepared
  • 8 large eggs
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1-½ teaspoons coarse kosher salt (see note)
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 12 ounces add-ins (typically about 3-4 cups)
  • 4 ounces (about 1 cup) cheese

Instructions

Prepare the Pastry:

  1. Roll out the pie dough to an 11-inch circle. Fit the pastry into a 9-inch metal pie plate, making sure to press the pastry into the sides and the bottom. Crimp the edges as desired. Prick the bottom of the dough all over with a fork. Place the pie shell in the freezer while the oven preheats, at least 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425ºF and place a rack in the lower part of the oven.
  3. Once chilled, line the pie shell with a round piece of parchment paper, then add pie weights (I recommend dry rice or beans or lentils), making sure to push the pie weights to the edges.
  4. Bake on the lower rack for 20 minutes, then remove from the oven and carefully remove the parchment and pie weights. Return to the oven and bake for an additional 5 minutes. Set aside until ready to use.

Make and Bake the Filling:

  1. Lower the heat to 375º.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, cream, salt, and pepper.
  3. Place the add-ins and cheese in the parbaked crust.
  4. Pour the egg mixture over the top.
  5. Bake at 375ºF for 50-55 minutes, until the middle of the quiche is set and slightly puffed. If necessary, cover the edges of the crust with aluminum foil to prevent them from burning.
  6. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Let the quiche cool for at least 5-10 minutes before slicing.
  7. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Notes

Any meat or veggies that are added in should be cooked fully.

Not all pie crusts will need to be blind-baked. Follow the instructions for the pie crust recipe if you are unsure.

This recipe was tested using Diamond Crystal coarse kosher salt. If you use Morton's kosher salt or fine salt, decrease by half for volume.

Depending on the add-ins, temper the amount of salt (adding less if the add-ins are very salty and vice versa)
