Our 24 Best Savory Pies

From beef empanadas to artichoke pasties, these savory pie recipes are well worth their salt.

Stacy Adimando

In the United States, we typically relegate pie to the dessert menu. With a few notable exceptions (hello, chicken pot pie), Americans tend toward sugary fillings like apple and cherry. What a shame. Savory ingredients deserve to be wrapped in pie crust, too.

One-dish meals so satisfying they rarely require a side, savory pies just might be the ultimate comfort food. Most freeze well, making for convenient make-ahead dinners or, in the case of savory hand pies, on-the-go lunches. And while it takes practice to nail the perfect from-scratch, all-butter pie crust, once you do, that dough can be frozen, too.

Cooks who don’t feel like fiddling with a rolling pin can always look to quality store-bought pie shells, puff pastry, or phyllo dough—a key ingredient in Mediterranean classics such as Greek spanakopita and Moroccan b’stilla. That British pub staple, the shepherd’s pie, forgoes the flaky envelope altogether in favor of mashed potatoes.

Peruse the best meat-pie recipes the U.K., Italy, Chile, South Africa, and Canada have to offer, and see if you don’t want pie for dinner. Pescatarian and vegetarian types: You’ll find temptation in the form of crawfish hand pies and veggie tarts. After all, why should fruit have all the fun?

Let's start from the bottom up - the tart crust.

I've made this veggie tart with store-bought pie crust, flatbread, frozen puff pastry, and my favorite - homemade herby pie crust. They'll all work, so grab whatever sounds good to you. I'll link the Savory Herb Pie Crust here so you can bookmark it for later. We love it for any savory tart or pie. I'll use it for Chicken Pot Pie, French Onion Tarts, and a delicious Heirloom Caprisi Tart. I like to make this tart slab style in a shallow 9x13 inch jelly roll pan. As the veggies bake, they'll lose some volume, so the long shallow pan size works out just about right.

About the recipe

We bet you've never had apple pie like this one before. Taking inspiration from the classic leftover apple pie trick of adding a slice of cheddar cheese to the top and merging it with the generous slab pie shaping method, this oversized dessert is the perfect addition to any holiday table.

A storebought pie crust makes this vegetable tart a breeze, but you can use a homemade version, like our All-Butter Pie Dough.

This pie is definitely a weekend project, but the depth of flavor achieved by the slow cooking time is worth it.

35 Savory Pie and Tart Recipes That Are Simply Delicious

Savory pies and tarts are often overlooked, but we think it's high time home cooks pay closer attention to these unexpected&mdashyet delicious&mdashdishes. Baked with meats, vegetables, and cheeses, savory pies and tarts are the perfect recipes to shake up your usual weekday menu. Whether you serve one as a delicious side dish or the main attraction, when you pair flaky, buttery dough with some of our favorite flavor combinations, you're well on your way to creating must-have meal for any time of day. That's right: We have savory pie and tart recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner ahead.

One of the first things that come to mind when thinking of the word "savory" is meat, and many of the pie and tart recipes ahead feature tender, juicy cuts of meat. For a truly showstopping savory pastry dish, bake the Spiced-Lamb Pie that's seen here. It's inspired by a Turkish take on pizza, called pide. You can use store-bought or homemade dough, depending on how much time you have. Another delectable choice? Surprise your family with our Thanksgiving Left-Over Pie for dinner this week&mdashit's a kitchen-sink-style dish featuring all of your favorites from the holiday: Turkey, stuffing, potatoes, carrots, leeks, and cranberry sauce all wrapped in a crispy pate brisée. No leftovers? No problem. You can make the pie using fresh ingredients, too.

Just because something is savory doesn't mean it has to be filled with meat, though. We're sharing some delicious vegetarian-friendly dishes that are sure to satisfy, with both tried and true flavors and surprising new combinations. Head East with our Broccoli and Potato "Samosa" Pie, which is made with a mix of Yukon gold potatoes, broccoli, fresh ginger, and jalapeño peppers for a little kick. Or try our decadent Mushroom-Gruyere Tart for a memorable meal. Tender mushrooms play nicely wit Gruyere cheese in this filling, which sits inside a deliciously nutty crust.

And if you're looking for a kid-friendly recipe, look no further: Our Spinach-Feta Pizza Slab Pie is guaranteed to please family members of every age. Kids will love the double crust, and you'll love how easy it is to make, thanks to store-bought pizza dough and simple ingredients.

Cheesy Potato Savory Pie

Wash and peel 1 lb of potatoes and cut into cubes. Transfer cubed potatoes to a bowl of very cold water. Then dry them and transfer to a saucepan with two cloves of garlic and a little olive oil. Brown the potatoes for just a few minutes. Add a few sprigs of rosemary and let cook for ten minutes. In the meantime, cut 4 oz Malga cheese into cubes. Cover a pie dish with a sheet of puffy pastry dough. Remove garlic and rosemary from the potato mixture and pour into the pastry dough, distributing everything evenly. Add the cheese cubes. In a bowl, mix together two eggs, a cup of milk, pepper, salt and nutmeg. Sprinkle the surface of the pie with the final mixture. Fold the edges of the pie inwards and bake for 30 minutes at 350°F.

What you’ll need to make a french apple tart

Before we get to the recipe, a word of advice: you might be tempted to load up the tart with extra apples but, trust me, less is more with this type of dessert. The apples release quite a bit of juice, which can leak from the tart and make a mess of the crust and your oven.

Also, be sure to use apples suitable for baking — think Fuji, Granny Smith, Jonagolds, Jonathans, Golden Delicious, Gala, Honey Crisp, etc. — otherwise, they’ll turn into applesauce.
