Depending on where you are from, I'd probably buy them from amazon.com (.de/.ie/.fr/...). From a consumer protection POV that might even have some advantages when compared to buying from a regular shop.

Pot Pies are a popular, if old fashioned, American coffin pie (crust completely surrounds filling). Usually made with chicken, beef, or lamb, with peas, carrots, and onions in a thick gravy or sauce.

New frozen convenience foods like frozen pizza have really taken a bite out of pot pies, but a fairly good percentage of the freezer cases in supermarkets are still dedicated to pies most of which are cheap and disgusting, but a good homemade one can really hit the spot.

Marie Callender is probably one of the best frozen pot pie out there. Nice crust, lots of gravy and veggies, and good sized chunks of meat.

I agree that Marie Callender pot pies are really good. But don't cook them in the microwave, even though the instructions say you can. They just don't come out as good. We have a toaster oven, so that's how we cook ours.
