    Canadian Meat Pies

    You can make these as an entree or an appetizer.
    For an entree, cut the pie crust in four pieces and make two meat pies per crust.
    For appetizers, use a drinking glass to cut small circles of pie crust and put together for bite size meat pies.
    Don't forget to flute the edges with a fork, for a decorative look.
    Either way, they are great.

    Canadian Meat Pies

    1 pound lean ground beef
    1 tube Bob Evans original sausage


    Salt and Pepper to taste
    1 cup minced onion
    2 heaping teaspoons of crushed garlic
    1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    1/2 teaspoon savory
    1/2 teaspoon celery salt
    1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
    1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
    1 cup water
    1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
    1 package Pillsbury pie crust
    1 to 2 egg whites for basting the crust

    On low heat, cook the sausage, ground beef, seasonings and water for about two hours. Stirring frequently and adding more water if needed. When the meat mixture is cooked, add the bread crumbs to absorb any fat. Stir several times until it is a somewhat dry mixture.
    Set the meat mixture aside.
    Pre‑heat oven to 400 degrees.
    Unroll the pie crust (2 rounds)
    Cut those two rounds in fourths.
    Spoon meat mixture onto each half.
    Fold pastry half over and seal edges with a fork, to give it fluted edges.
    Freeze any leftover meat mixture in a zip‑loc bag for future use.
    Baste a bit of egg white on each meat pie to give it a glaze.
    Bake for about twenty minutes, or until pastry crust is golden brown.
    Serve with salad and crusty French bread.

    Hey gals. I've recently been thrown into chef of the apartment and been looking for cheap and simple recipes. Found this one last night and it was a breeze!

    1 1/2 lb. chicken breast
    1/2 c. flour
    Salt and pepper
    Oil for frying
    3 cloves garlic
    Juice of 1 lemon
    3 c. chicken broth
    1 tbsp. cornstarch
    1/4 c. cold water
    Cooked rice


    Rinse chicken and cut up into bite-size pieces. Put flour, salt and pepper in plastic bag. Add chicken in batches to bag of flour and shake to coat. Brown chicken in batches until all chicken is golden brown. Remove from pan and keep warm. Pour off oil.

    Add 1 tablespoon oil to pan; chop garlic and brown in oil. Add chicken broth, lemon juice, to pan. Mix cornstarch and water and add to pan. Add chicken to sauce. Cover and simmer on low for 15 minutes. Serve over rice.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------


    What I did differently:
    I had a lot less chicken than the recipe calls for so I pared down a little bit. Only used 2 cups of broth. However, I did up the garlic because we're garlic freaks around here.



    Also, I used flour instead of cornstarch and instead of mixing it with water, I just threw a couple of handfuls directly into the sauce and whisked all the lumps away. Came out with a thick, almost gravy like, sauce. Was a hit with my fellas!



    For a side I chose green beans. Steamed them and then after I strained the water, I took a couple of spoonfuls of the sauce and mixed it in with the beans. Delish!

    I'd rather be rich than stupid.
