It’s fall.  The morning drive to work is alive with the glow of the changing leaves, but it’s already dark by the time I get home, which means I’m ready to melt into a recliner and order in.  But my wallet–and colon–can only handle so much of that delicious trash.

Salmon pie is a perfect solution.  It only takes 30 minutes and will get you through three meals, easy.  I always knew it as a tasty tradition passed down from my French-Canadian mémère but recently found out variations of it are popular in British and Eastern European kitchens, too.

Will it make the cut in yours?

Salmon Pie

**makes 8 servings**

  1. Pour salmon into a bowl and mash with a fork until uniform.
  2. Add mashed potatoes to salmon.
  3. Place one pie crust into glass pie plate (no grease needed). Add salmon/potato filling.
  4. Place pie crust over filling and pinch top and bottom crusts together to seal and cut slits for ventilation. Cover crust edges with tin foil.
  5. Bake at 450° for 10 minutes.
  6. Remove foil. Bake 350° for 20 minutes.
  7. Put it in your mouth.
