1/3 cup shortening
1⁄4 cup cold butter
5 to7 Tbsp. ice water

FILLING
2 medium red potatoes, chopped
1  Tbsp. water
2  Tbsp. butter
3  Tbsp. all-purpose flour
2 cups 2% milk
1⁄4  tsp. garlic powder
1⁄4  tsp. pepper

Directions

  1. Place flour in a large bowl; cut in shortening and butter until crumbly. Gradually add ice water 1 Tbsp. at a time, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Divide dough in half. Shape each into a disk; wrap and refrigerate 1 hour or overnight.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine potatoes and water; microwave, covered, on high until tender, 4-5 minutes. Cool; drain. In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in flour until smooth; gradually whisk in milk, garlic powder and pepper. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir until thickened, 2-3 minutes. Cool and set aside.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll half the dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. deep-dish pie plate. Trim even with rim. Place potatoes in crust. Top with bacon, onion, broccoli and cheese. Pour sauce over top. Roll remaining dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle. Place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edge. Cut slits in top. Place on the Baking Pan.
  4. Slide the Pizza Rack into Shelf Position 5. Place the Baking Pan on the Pizza Rack. Turn Function Dial to Pizza/Bake, set temperature to 375° and set the timer to 60 minutes. Bake until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly, 50-60 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes.

Eric’s Tip: Bacon grease is so tasty, it’s worth saving for other dishes. Once it’s slightly cooled, strain the grease through cheesecloth or a coffee
filter. Cover and refrigerate cooled grease up to 6 months. Cook your morning eggs and potato dishes in the bacon grease. Want a real treat? Use it for popping corn, and relish the delicate flavor.
