Individual Pork & Cranberry Potpies
Total TimePrep: 45 min. Bake: 15 min.
- 2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries, thawed
- 4 celery ribs, sliced
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2-1/2 cups apple cider or juice
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 4 teaspoons grated orange zest
- 1 tablespoon beef or chicken bouillon granules
- 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed, or dried thyme
- 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup water
- 5 cups chopped cooked pork
- 4 sheets refrigerated pie crust
- Adjust oven rack to lower third of oven; preheat oven to 450°. In a large saucepan, combine the first nine ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until berries pop, about 10 minutes.
- In a small bowl, mix flour and water until smooth; stir into cranberry mixture. Return to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir until thickened, 1-2 minutes. Stir in pork; remove from heat.
- On a work surface, unroll crusts. Roll each into a 14-in. circle. Using a 5-in. disposable foil potpie pan as a guide (top side down), cut out sixteen 6-in. crust circles, rerolling scraps as needed.
- Press 1 crust circle firmly into bottom and up sides of eight 5-in. disposable foil pans. Divide pork mixture evenly among pans. Place remaining crust circles over tops, pressing bottom and top crusts together firmly; flute edges. Cut slits in crusts.
- Place potpies on baking sheets. Bake until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly, 30-35 minutes.
Freeze option: Cover tightly and freeze unbaked potpies. To use, bake frozen pies on baking sheets in a preheated 425° oven until golden brown and a thermometer inserted in center reads 165°, 40-45 minutes.

Sorry, but this dish is not worth the work Even worse, the recipe is labelled as "healthy," but the nutrition information for one serving is anything but healthy: 727 calories, 34g fat (14g saturated fat), 98mg cholesterol, 746mg sodium, 73g carbohydrate (19g sugars, 2g fiber), 30g protein...I had to share one serving with my husband. I added a side salad since this potpie contains no vegetables.
