Curry Lamb Pot Pie

Filling up on Curry Lamb Pot Pie

Although temperatures are still very warm here in Southern California, I seem to have autumn on my mind.  I’ve been craving my favorite fall flavors and dishes.  So when Jarlsberg contacted me asking if I’d be willing to dream up a dish that would be suitable for those crazy back-to-school nights where time is lacking, I jumped on the opportunity to let autumn come a bit early in the Fuji household.

Jarlsberg Cheese

I decided to reinvent a comfort food classic, the pot pie.  My pot pie is inspired by Indian flavors, featuring ground lamb and a rich flavorful curry broth.  To top it all off, I went with a gluten-free alternative to the usual pastry crust—a Jarlsberg cheese crust!  This dish is easy to make and can be made ahead.  If you’re not a fan of lamb, all is not lost! I have alternatives for you.  I don’t want to give everything away, so if you want my recipe for Curry Lamb Pot Pie, you’ll have to head over and read my guest post on the new Jarlsberg blog!

This looks great! Congrats on the gig! I’m wondering what you think about subbing lamb for beef?

Congrats on the gig Rachael. That pot pie surely looks so delish and a treat to fall, comforts :)

Wow, this looks so comforting and tasty good! The nutty flavor of Jarlsberg would go so well here. Good luck I’ll vote for you!

Looks great, I gave you a vote and what an awesome gig! Lamb is huge here in Wyoming, most of my neighbors raise sheep but we just have cows.

I’ve been using curry with alarming regularity lately. I love it!

I got to taste some of this and it was great. Can’t beat the combination of cheese and lamb and the curry blended them together well.
