These individual meat pies are also called Cornish Pasties. You can
fill them with whatever cooked, ground or shredded meat and
vegetables you' d like. We added frozen hash brown potatoes and
ground hamburger in the pictures below. Seasoned with seasoning salt
and pepper and served with ketchup.
Other good combinations are hamburger, peas and carrots or shredded
chicken and diced peppers and onions. Season with salt and pepper
and whatever spices you'd like.

Making Meat Pies
Pie dough or ready made pie crusts
whatever cooked meat you'd like shredded chicken, pork or
ground hamburger work well
diced vegetables such as carrots, potatoes, onions, peppers
beaten egg for egg wash
Roll or lay pie dough out in a large circle. Cut into two. Place
meat and vegetables on one end of the pie dough. Fold dough over and
seal edges by pinching together and pressing with a fork. Place on a
cookie sheet and preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut two slits or poke
holes on the top with a fork.
Beat an egg in a glass and use a pastry brush to brush the tops of
each mini pie. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
Other Meat Pie Variations
An easy version of individual meat pies using chicken and crescent
rolls. This recipe is like a chicken cordon bleu sandwich.

8 slices of deli ham
8 slices of Swiss cheese
16 frozen breaded chicken breast tenders, thawed
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Using crescent rolls, place a slice of ham, slice of cheese and a
chicken breast on each crescent triangle. Roll up and seal the
edges with a fork. Bake at 375 degrees until golden brown.

1 1/2 pounds sirloin steak tips , pounded until paper thin
1 can Campbell's (or other brand soup) of French onion soup

1/4 cup shredded cheese (mozzarella, Monterrey jack, or other
cheese of your choice)
a pinch of salt (I use No Salt as a substitute)
a pinch black pepper
1. Cut each sirloin tip with the grain into 1-inch cubes.

Set oven or convection oven to 350 F
Prepare a cookie sheet with wax paper and nonstick cooking spray
Cook meat for 10 minutes, add can of french onion soup, salt,
pepper, and diced bell peppers over a low to medium heat until
done and most of the liquid has been soaked up.
Lay out and roll out dough into a round 10-12 inch circle.
Once meat is done, add
meat mix to the center of the circle of dough (like you would a
taco or burrito), be sure to leave about 1/2 an inch of space on
each end of the circle.
Then roll the dough up at the ends and roll the rest of the dough
like a burrito. Secure the ends and middle with toothpicks to hold
Place on cookie sheet and place in oven, Cook for approximately
45 minutes or until lightly browned.

the way through, and wrap in tin foil until ready to eat.
