Marie Callender's / Turkey Pot Pies
This evening I ate one of the Marie Callender's Turkey Pot Pies for my supper. I used the MicroWave method (1100 watt LG) with suggested 9 to 10 minute cooking time. The result was the worst pot pie I have ever eaten, and I have enjoyed many of Marie Callender's in the past. To begin with, the "Golden Flaky Crust Made From Scratch" had the consistency of the carton and was burnt with a hardness that resisted cutting with a fork. The ingredients were very unpalatable, carrots tough, meat dried out. This was the result of a 9 minute cook time with "Let Stand" time of 5 minutes. This pie, and one eaten recently were purchased December 2013, and I have (3) more of the same product under refrigeration as I write. With Two (2) failures in less then a month what can I say? Here are the details; [protected] P2 16:27 P45 Best if used by MAY 12 2015. Barcode # [protected] 9.
I purchased the pies at Safeway's in Oak Harbor, Washington and were stored in a cooler chest from time of purchase until I refrigerated them at home approximately 1 hour travel time.
