Created Your Own ‘Ham Solo’ Pot Pie
Inspired by Han Solo and the ship that made the Kessel Run, this ham pot pie — pronounced with Lando’s preferred inflection, naturally — is stuffed with a tried and true filling that will never let you down, just like a certain scoundrel. (Just don’t call him a stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf herder.)
