YUM, YUM, AND MORE YUM!!! I loved this recipe and even though, all I had was an imitation lobster (I know...I know....)it was just delicious. I followed the recipe for the most part, since my "lobster" was fully cooked, that eliminated a step, I also added mushrooms to the veggies, and a dash of dry sherry to the sauce. Very rich, very filling, and very quick to put together. Next time I'll do it the right way and use real lobster and make my own crust, but when in a hurry, this fit the bill. Thank you so much for submitting.


Wow!! I don't usually make recipes with only a few reviews, but I sure am glad I made this one!! I have been looking for a lobster pot pie recipe & this one is perfect!! I made as written but substituted the lobster with precooked snow crab legs & precooked shrimp from the seafood counter at my grocer because it was much cheaper than buying lobster (and just as good in my opinion). Since my seafood was precooked it eliminated steps 2-4, which really saved on time! For the potato I used one medium sized red potato & left the skin on. I used skim milk & it still thickened up nicely. I used a frozen deep dish pie crust & put the pre-made refrigerated crust over the top. Oh, I did use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth to make this vegetarian for my daughter. This is absolutely fabulous!!! I also made the Chicken Pot Pie IX from this sight for my husband which has a 5 star rating with over 5400 reviews & this is just as good if you love seafood as I do!! Will make this often, thank you for the post!!!


Made this last night and it was fantastic. Lobsters are relatively cheap this year and I was able to get some on sale. Added sherry to the sauce and used half and half instead of milk. Talk about decadent! My husband, who never comments about anything was asking if I could make it again when our daughter comes home for Thanksgiving. Would also be great served in puff pastry !
