Megan of Not Martha created these deliciously creepy pot pies using store-bought pie crust. Good as dinner, or substitute apples or pumpkin for a silly Fall dessert.

Very cute! Or perhaps it could be served as a memorial dinner for Paul, the World Cup Predicting Octopus...


brilliant thanks!

awesome!!! love this idea!

I have also seen something similar with a hotdog...You leave the top inch or two intact, but you slice the bottom of the dog, leaving it intact, but with rubbery little octo-arms on top of your mac & cheese.

That is a VERY cool idea.. I know it'll work with my boys.. Brilliant!
