1.3 pounds of lean ground beef
½ small onion
1 cup whipped or mashed potato
season to taste

meat pie recipe

Directions:

Preheat the oven to package recommendations, then roll out the pie crust and fit to the plate.   Prebake for about 12 minutes or until just before it starts to turn golden brown.  While that is baking, cook and scramble the meet in a pan with the chopped onion.  We went with slightly larger pieces of the onion to give a little more texture to the dish.  Cook fully through and then strain off extra fat then mix in the cup of whipped potato, this will help hold the meat together.  When the crust is ready fill it with the meat, lightly press down all the way around and then return to the oven for an additional 10 to 14 minutes.  This was delicious with fresh tomatoes and baby salad greens.

  • It looks delicious, but I’d use a different type of meat, turkey or chicken maybe. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
