Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make this vegan?

For a vegan garlic bread pot pie to die for, simply use leftover nut or mushroom roast, or tofurkey in place of chicken or ham. Replace the milk and butter in the recipe for non dairy alternatives, and voilà!

Can I make using a different kind of bread?

If you don’t have Futurelife Honey and Oat bread, don’t stress – any soft and fluffy sliced brown bread or cubed sourdough will work.
