    I wonder if it's possible to make a pie with a chicken tender top crust?
    The difficulty would be in thickening the gravy...potato starch/tapioca instead of flour perhaps? Almost like a cube steak pie. As for a chicken tender top crust, assuming it were to be breaded that would again be the issue - finding a primal breading - almond/coconut flour would probably work but it seems you would have to fry them to get them crisp.

    Edit...you may want to do something more along the lines of a chicken schnitzel...pounded out flat and then quickly crisped, that would even work as a bottom 'crust' I'd think.

    I know people use mashed cauliflower for shephard's pie...

    And gelatin thickens sauces nicely. Also starches do too.

    I use omelettes as crusts.

    Yup, lots of people seem to use mashed cauliflower, but honestly, I'm a potato fan. I like cauliflower as much as the next guy but generally do not see the need for the substitution unless one is avoiding potatoes for some reason. I'd not thought to use gelatin, that makes sense though. I'll have to give that a go at some point.

    omelette pie with omelette crust and omelette filling sounds pretty freaking awesome, though perhaps that is because I am really hungry right now

    Turquoise, you are BRILLIANT!

    We just had a lovely smoked pork roast for dinner, or I would be making this right now. It is on my list for tomorrow!

    I've tried mashed cauliflower for the top of shepard's pie and I didn't really care for it. I've also combined cauliflower with parsnips and carrots and that was better. Now I'm back to just using potatoes, it's so much better!

    I'm with you on the potato issue. I do like parsnip/cauliflower purees. I'm not sure why I find this preferable to mashed, perhaps its a textural thing.

    I'm thinking of making shephard pie pasties tomorrow for dinner, maybe with a cream chile gravy dipping sauce.
