Meat and Potato Pie
When I was working full-time, this hearty pie was a favorite of my family. Now that I'm retired , I still rely on this sure-to-please recipe.—Helen Ellingson, Swan River, Manitoba
Total TimePrep: 35 min. Bake: 30 min.
- 2 tablespoons shortening
- 1-1/2 cups biscuit/baking mix
- 3 to 4 tablespoons cold water
- 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

- 1 can (8 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces, drained
- 2 cups hot mashed potatoes (prepared with milk and butter)
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- In a small bowl, cut shortening into biscuit mix until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the water, 1 tablespoon at a time, tossing lightly with a fork until dough forms a ball.
- On a lightly floured surface, roll out pastry to fit a 9-in. pie plate. Line ungreased pie plate with pastry; trim and flute edges or make a decorative edge. Set aside.
- In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in soup and seasonings; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes.
- Pour into pie shell. Top with carrots and mushrooms. Combine potatoes and sour cream; spread over pie. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°. Bake 15 minutes longer or until golden brown. Sprinkle with cheese; let stand for 5-10 minutes.
