I teased this guy a little bit last week during my Kitchen 101 post, but I promise it was worth the wait to get this recipe. This pie. Oh my gosh, this pie! It’s so hearty and filling and crazy flavorful considering the low number of ingredients.
I absolutely adore savory pies (this chicken tamale pie is one of my favorites and I have a spaghetti pie recipe that’ll knock your socks off). I think savory pies are appealing because they are so unexpected. Obviously, when you say the word “pie” people automatically jump to the sweet variety, but there is something so pleasantly weird about a savory pie. It’s like when you open the mailbox and expect nothing but bills, but you get a nice hand-written note from a friend. Happy surprises are the best! And in my world, the happiest of surprises are made up of potatoes covered in melted cheese.
This recipe is a direct rip-off of my Zuppa Toscana recipe. Which an oldie, but a goodie that you should definitely try. The combo of Italian sausage, kale and potato is a classic that you can never go wrong with. There is something so nice about the combination of the textures and flavors. The potatoes are so smooth and earthy. The kale is chewy, bright and clean. And the sausage is spicy, robust and super tasty!
Now that I’ve made my first potato pie, I have tons of idea for other ones. Like a smoked salmon, dill and fresh asparagus one when our asparagus plants start producing next March. Or maybe even a loaded potato version with lots of bacon, cheddar cheese, chives and sour cream. Yum!

Yum! I love that soup of yours, so this will definitely make an appearance or two (or four) this season! I don’t like sweet pies actually, but I think savory would make more sense to my taste buds.
Also, now that it is fall, I am super excited to try a chicken pot pie recipe by Anne Burrell. I made it for Father’s Day and totally messed up on the gravy, but it was delicious anyway, despite the runny-ness. She puts CREAM CHEESE in the pie crust. How did I not think of that??
Thanks for the recipe Cassie!
Made this last night. Big hit with my husband. Thanx :)
In my extreme lameness, I won’t make my own pie crust (I know, I know) so do you have any recommendations for using a frozen pie crust? Should I let it thaw or par bake it? Thanks!
I normally just follow the directions on the box! :)
This sounds lovely and indulgent and delicious! Any thoughts on an alternate to the swiss? I don’t like swiss (but like most other cheeses!). Maybe parmesan? Thoughts? Thanks! ox
Hmmm, Gruyere might work! But Parm should be fine, too.
I’m a big fan of the savory pie as well, and you can’t really beat sausage, kale and potatoes.
