Savory meat pies. Do I need to say more? Eating a few of these bad boys while watching the penultimate episode of Hells Kitchen made us long for the cooler climate of England . Brandishing a bottle of Branston Pickle, slathering a corner of the meaty pasty brought visions of rural Devon; of us hiking amidst the heather and bracken, breathing in cool crisp air, building an appetite to grab some pub grub in any one of the small picturesque villages. (Deep Sigh)
OK, back to meat pie and hot ass Florida where we’ve had heat advisories (due to the heat index being as high as 118 F (47 C ) - That’s correct. 118 F is what is would feel like some afternoons. So…no sucking in a deep lungful of cool crisp air. Turning the A/C down, we can at least dream
Savory Meat Pies.
I snagged this idea from a blog I have recently stumbled upon called Our Krazy Kitchen so, a shout out to Chris as this is her recipe.
Brilliantly simple and sure to be a repeat in the kitchen at Squirrel Head Manor. Before I regale you with the recipe, let me say these are a treat as well as a time saving meal to toss together - especially if you have hungry children pouring into your home after school. And there are so many variations you can make – each meat pie will be different.
Next time, for just the two of us, I will prepare the filling mixture and use only one can of refrigerated biscuits, saving the remaining filling for another evening. They reheated fine, but you know they were better fresh and steaming out of the oven. We ate these like it was our job!
The slightly modified recipe from Our Krazy Kitchen
Beef & Cheddar Meat Pies
1 pound Ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped fine
1/2 ea Green bell pepper, chopped fine
Salt and Pepper
2 cans of refrigerated biscuits
½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
In a preheated skillet, brown the meat, onion and bell pepper. Drain well.
Flour a surface, take two biscuits, overlap them and then roll them out into a figure 8. Add filling and top with cheese.
Fold it together and use a fork to crimp edges. Bake.
Thank you to Chris over at Our Krazy Kitchen!
