Some time ago, when I was working at a newspaper, a co-worker happened to bring a meat pie for lunch. The aroma was familiar to me, and I asked for a taste. To my amazement, it was the same pie my grandmother used to serve when I was a youngster! I copied the meat pie recipe, and I have been enjoying it ever since. —Rita Winterberger, Huson, Montana

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup mashed potatoes
  • 2 teaspoons ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Pastry for double-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 1 large egg, beaten, optional

Directions

  1. In a Dutch oven, cook the beef, pork and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.
  2. In a small bowl, combine potatoes and seasonings. Roll out half of pastry to fit a 9-in. pie plate; trim pastry even with edge of plate. Fill with meat mixture.
  3. Roll out remaining pastry to fit top of pie; place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edges. Cut slits in pastry. Brush with egg if desired. Bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.
