I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Potato Topped Meat Pie

Ugh... halfway through making two meat pies I realized I didn't have enough pie dough to top the second one. I quickly improvised with some mashed potatoes! 

2 1/2 lbs ground meat (beef, pork and veal trio)
1 medium onion, diced
1 carrot, shredded
1/2 cup frozen green peas
1 apple, shredded
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp sage
1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs

And enough pie dough for 2 pies, or in this case 2 bottoms and 1 top. Two large Yukon gold potatoes, microwaved then mashed with butter and milk. (Or even better, leftover mashed potatoes!) Anyhooo...

Put all the ingredients for the tourtière (meat pie) in a large skillet and cook until the meat is no longer pink. Roll out the dough and place in bottoms of 2 - 8" pie plates. Fill with meat filling then roll out the top dough, wet edges and top, crimping to seal. Score the top so the air can escape.

For the second pie, spread the mashed potatoes over the meat. You can run a fork over the top if you want to get fancy! And sprinkle some paprika all over.

Then bake both at 425°F for 25-30 minutes.
Delicious cross between meat pie and shepherd's pie!
