To Make A Tavern Pie:
  1. Place 1 cup of Boursin filling in the center of each pie shell, leaving approximately 2” of the edge free of filling.
  2. Bring the edges of the pie shell up over the filling (leaving the center open with the Boursin filling exposed), crimping the edges so they overlap and create a circle.
  3. Brush the exposed pie dough of each tavern pie with egg wash.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes.


For a vegetarian option, simply replace the Italian sausage with fresh mushrooms.
